Democrats held first union meeting on the day ex-rebels formally split

KATHMANDU: After a long standing row between the party leadership and the dissident Sher Bahadur Deuba faction was resolved, the first complete Central Working Committee (CWC) of the Nepali Congress (NC) has begun at the party headquarters, Sanepa.

According to central member, Arjun Narsingh KC, discussions will be held in the meeting on the country’s latest political developments, situation after the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly (CA), in the context of declaration of the fresh CA elections, works of caretaker government, formation of a national consensus government, among others.

KC further said that the meeting will also discuss on how to make the agitation that was launched in coordination with the CPN-UML and other fringe parties effective, resignation of caretaker Prime Minister, political and constitutional crisis in the country, among others.

Party leaders and cadres expressed happiness that the meeting has given a message of unity as the dissident faction of senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba, who were dissatisfied on the dissolution of party’s sister organizations, are also attending the meeting.
