Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has called a meeting of the party’s Central Working Committee for 4 pm in Hetaunda of Makawanpur district today. The meeting will discuss preparations for the party’s district presidents’ gathering.
The gathering will begin in Hetaunda on Tuesday. It will last for three days.
Meanwhile, two rival factions of the party–one led by Deuba and another led by Ram Chandra Paudel among others–are trying hard to turn the party equation on their sides from the gathering.
Both Deuba and Paudel-led factions have prepared their own strategies for the meet. As other influential leaders of the party including Krishna Prasad Sitaula, Arjun Narsingha KC and Kul Bahadur Gurung have also joined anti-Deuba camp, it is likely that the gathering will make Deuba little weaker in the party organisation.
The party leaders are at odds over the loss in the three elections held last year and are blaming each other for the historic debacle.
The Paudel-led group will also pressuriae the party leadership to hold the mahasamiti meeting and the general convention at the earliest.
