Koirala, Deuba likely to meet today

Kathmandu, July 20:

Nepali Congress president Girija Prasad Koirala and NC (Democratic) president Sher Bahadur Deuba are expected to meet tomorrow to pave the way for eventual unification of the two parties.

Although the two leaders were scheduled to meet today and expedite the unification process, the same did not happen since both the sides are buying time as a tactical move. The two leaders will be going through the unification formula put together by the task forces tomorrow.

While the two had expressed commitment to merge the two parties on Wednesday, they had ordered the task forces to fine tune the formula, which apparently has been done.
