6 November 2020, Kathmandu
President Bidya Devi Bhandari has called Minister for Energy Barshaman Pun to her office seeking his active role to ensure unity in the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP).
NCP conflict has reached the point of a rift in the party after PM Oli has defied the former agreement made in the party and declared would not abide by the party decision.
Known as a close well-wisher of PM Oli, President Bhandari has been using her influence to generate support for the Prime Minister.
President Bhandari has already called Standing Committee Members Bamdev Gautam and Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa and sought a role in easing the PM.
NCP leader Gautam was called on Tuesday and Home Minister Thapa was called on Thursday.
