New Delhi, July 3 (HS) Co-chair of ruling Nepal Communist Party, Pushp Kamal Dahal aka Prachanda, has claimed that the party’s future is uncertain due to internal factions.

Dahal made the statement during the second round of the Standing Committee meeting on Thursday after having a separate meeting with President Bidhya Devi Bhandari and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli.

Dahal told the committee, “Today’s meeting will be a historic one for Nepal Communist Party. We are holding the meeting here at Prime Minister’s residence but he is not present I had made multiple requests with him on the issue but he has been turning out from it,”

“I had also asked him not to prorogue the ongoing meeting but they rejected and went ahead with it. It is learned that they are bringing on an Ordinance which helps to split the party, I have made it clear that I am against it,” he added.

Despite the ongoing rift in the ruling party, Dahal claimed that he is committed to protecting the unity of the party. “If we succeeded in maintaining it then it would a historic one,” Dahal said.

It is noteworthy that Dahal-led faction in Nepal’s ruling party has demanded Oli’s resignation saying that he failed to take decisions on many issues.
