‘Maha Samiti meeting did not end factionalism’

Panchthar, December 30

Nepali Congress Co-general secretary Prakash Sharan Mahat today claimed that the party leadership was still guided by factional interests even after the recent maha samiti meeting of the Nepali Congress held in Kathmandu.

Speaking at a programme organised by his party in Phidim of Panchthar, Mahat said that many party leaders motivated with the prospects of attaining power and leadership positions in the party had given more importance to consolidation of the factions concerned than making the party organisation more powerful.

As a result, the Maha Samiti had not ended the competition between the factions in the party. Instead it had intensified the factional struggle in the party.
