NCP standing committee meeting uncertain

KATHMANDU, May 6: The standing committee meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party has become uncertain owing to “lack of homework”.

The Secretariat had met today in Baluwatar to discuss the agendas of the standing committee meeting, which the previous Secretariat meeting had scheduled for Thursday.

But, after the meeting was informed that the chair duo Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ had not done enough homework on the proposal to be presented in the next meeting, the meeting ended inconclusively, according to party Spokesperson Narayan Kaji Shrestha.

Shrestha did not clarify whether the meeting will be held tomorrow but said, “The two chairs will discuss and decide about the proposals, agendas and meeting itself,” he added.

According to reports, Prime Minister Oli had left in the middle of the meeting citing tiredness and had not turned up compelling the Secretariat members to end the meeting without a conclusion.

“The prime minister informed the meeting that he would not be able to stay in the meeting until the end because he was not feeling physically well and as well as busy and left,” Shrestha said.
