Kathmandu, February 6
As many as 18 politburo members of the CPN-Maoist Centre have urged party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal to take action against party’s leader and Province 1 In-charge Gopal Kiranti for making public statements against the proposed unification of the party with CPN-UML.
They have said they will not attend a meeting of the party’s provincial committee if Kiranti chairs it and hence asked Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal to chair the meeting. The meeting has been scheduled for Thursday and Friday.
They have also accused Kiranti of acting against the party in recent provincial and federal parliamentary polls.
It has been learned that many leaders in Province 1 are not happy with Kiranti as he chose leader Sabitri Kumar Kafle’s wife, Bina Pokharel, for the National Assembly elections.
