Congress meeting on Tuesday to decide whether to begin protest against government

Kathmandu: A meeting of the Central Working Committee of the Nepali Congress is being held on Tuesday amid confusion over whether to agitate against the dissolution of the House of Representatives or wait for the court’s decision.

A meeting will be held at the party office, Sanepa at 1 pm to discuss the preparations for the party’s 14th general convention and the agitation against the dissolution of the parliament, Prakash Sharan Mahat informed. However, the leaders said that it was not clear whether a movement against the dissolution of the parliament would be declared or not.

On Monday, the day before the meeting, leaders of both the parties, including the two general secretaries, were engaged in discussions at Sanepa.

Leaders of senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel’s party have stressed on the need to make public more programs of the movement. But the leaders close to the president were of the opinion that they should consult with the president.

Before the leaders of both the parties sat in the party office, the leaders of Poudel’s party had gathered at the residence of General Secretary Shashank Koirala. The leaders have stressed on the need to bring more programs of the movement as the dissolution of the parliament is unconstitutional.

Leaders say that party president Sher Bahadur Deuba is not in favor of announcing the agitation. He has been saying that he should not speak on the issue under consideration in the court and should not agitate for the court to do so.
