KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has called the meeting of party's Central Working Committee for coming Thursday, March 23.

Party's Central Office Chief Secretary Krishna Prasad Paudel informed that the meeting shall take place at 8:30 am at the Central Office in Sanepa.

Of late, Deuba was under pressure from the rival faction in the party led by senior leader Ram Chandra Paudel to call the meeting immediately.

Paudel among other leaders had been demanding that the party's CWC discuss vexing issues of the national political developments and put forward its opinions clearly.

It has already been months since the party held its CWC meeting for the last time.
