KATHMANDU: A Secretariat meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) is underway at Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar on Saturday evening.

The meeting will discuss the proposal floated made by Prime Minister KP Oli to make the party’s Vice-chairman Bamdev Gautam the next Prime Minister and senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal party’s third Chairman.

In the Secretariat meeting held on Wednesday, NPC Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and leader Nepal faction had asked Prime Minister Oli to resign from the post of Prime Minister and party chair.

In response, Oli had proposed Vice-Chairman Bamdev Gautam as the prime minister and leader Nepal as the party chair with effect once the coronavirus pandemic subsides.

Interestingly, positions of chairs have been changed during today’s meeting making Oli and Dahal standing at the same line.

Meanwhile, PM Oli has decided not to resign while Dahal and leader Nepal are preparing to pressure Oli to resign from the government and remove him from the party’s key role.

During the meeting, the Dahal-Nepal group had prepared to force Prime Minister Oli to resign and convene a meeting of the Standing Committee.

Sources claimed that there was a strategy to force Oli to make a decision as the Dahal-Nepal group was believed to have a majority in the nine-member secretariat.

But according to high-level sources close to the prime minister, Oli has a majority in the Secretariat.
