CPN UML’s Standing Committee members on Thursday told the party leadership to focus on elections to emerge as the largest party.
Leaders also suggested that the party should be alert while drafting the laws related to the elections for a timely election.
Addressing a standing committee meeting on Thursday, Deputy General Secretary Ghanashyam Bhusal said the UML-led government made significant stride in Nepal’s foreign relations “at the cost of party’s internal unity”. Chairman KP Sharma Oli did some remarkable job in the government at the cost of party’s unity, he said.
Since the start of the meeting on Monday, several standing committee members
have been critical of the leadership for destroying the organisational structure of the party and promoting factional politics.
“They have urged the leadership to make efforts for unifying the party,” a senior leader told the Post.
The leaders blamed Chairman and former prime minister Oli’s “superiority complex” for failing to continue the left alliance.
The meeting dwelt on several issues including party’s internal structure, performance of the UML-led government, upcoming elections
and roles of the party, among others, said Secretary Yogesh Bhattarai .
Apart Bhusal, Secretary Prithvi Subba Gurung, Amrit Kumar Bohora, Pushpa Kandel, Keshav Badal, Kiran Gurung and Satya Narayan Mandal were the speakers at Thursday. Chairman Oli is expected to respond to the comments and suggestions made by the leaders on Friday.
