KATMANDU: The Nepalese Congress (NC) faction led by top leader Ram Chandra Poudel highlighted the 14th General Convention being held on schedule.
Members of the NC Central Working Committee (CWC), close to senior leader Poudel, held a meeting at the residence of Secretary General Shashank Koirala in Maharajgunj on Monday afternoon to discuss the party’s 14th general convention.
Leaders supported keeping the general convention on schedule by finalizing disputes and proceedings at the meeting. CN’s 14th General Convention is scheduled for September 1-4. Leaders believe the convention should be held on time even though it would cost less to shorten proceedings and end disputes.
CN called a meeting of the CWC on August 12 to discuss the matter. The Poudel faction held a meeting today ahead of the party’s CWC meeting. Senior leader Poudel said talks were held to save the party’s legitimacy by holding a general convention on time.
Previously, the faction had proposed to hold a special general convention in order to save the legal status of the party, but this proposal was rejected by the president of the NC, Sher Bahadur Deuba.
At the Poudel Affiliate District Presidents’ meeting on Monday morning, the focus was on convening a special general convention. The NC District Presidents Gathering started here today.
