Dolakha, November 17
Nepal Communist party (NCP) Co-chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal today said technical problem had delayed the unification of the party at the lower levels.
Addressing the inaugural session of a football tournament organised to commemorate his son Prakash Dahal at Dolakha headquarters Charikot, Dahal made it clear that intra-party dispute was not behind the delay in party unification.
“Many senior leaders, including Prime Minister KP Oli went for a foreign visit. Madhav Kumar Nepal is still outside the country. As he returns on November 21, we will have a meeting of the Secretariat the next day,” Dahal said.
Dahal held that prime minister’s health problem had also delayed the secretariat meeting for some days.
“I and Prime Minister KP Oli had a meeting yesterday evening. We have decided to conduct secretariat meeting, finalise province committees, fix office bearers of district committees, among others,” Dahal added.
Dahal informed that secretariat meeting will be followed by standing committee meeting. “Dispute and disagreements have not delayed the party unification. It is the technical problem that delayed the unification process,” Dahal clarified.
Dahal defended the government saying that it had done some momentous work despite the fact that it had drawn public ire and criticism.
