NC Maha Samiti meet postponed

KATHMANDU: The Nepali Congress has decided to postpone its Mahasamiti meeting until mid-December (December 14 to 18).

A meeting of the NC Central Working Committee held today took a decision to this effect. Prior to this, NC had decided to hold the Mahasamiti meeting in Kathmandu from November 21 to 25.

According to party spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma, the mahasamiti meeting was postponed to hold more discussions on party statute amendment draft.

The meeting has also nominated NC parliamentary party deputy leader Bijay Kumar Gachchhadar as the vice-president of the party.

Similarly, the meeting has formed a five-member dialogue committee under the convenorship of Vice-president Bimalendra Nidhi to finalize the party merger bid to the lower level.

Leader Gachchhadar, who had quit NC in 2008 and joined the then Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (Democratic) had returned back to the NC in 2017 after merging his party.
