KATHMANDU: A meeting held between Chairman of ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Prime Minister KP Oli ended inconclusively today as well as both the leaders did not budge an inch from their respective positions.

Sources claimed while PM Oli insisted on addressing the issue at the Secretariat level, Chairman Dahal reiterated his stance of convening the meeting of the Standing Committee (SC).

PM Oli insisted that the problems seen within the party should be resolved by the Secretariat.

Party sources said chances of narrowing down the differences between the top two leaders look slim as both Dahal and Oli have remained rigid to their respective stance.

The two leaders on Sunday had come down to blame game politics accusing one another for the stalemate.

Today’s meeting was attended by party senior leader Jhalanath Khanal and SC member Subash Chandra Nemwang.

Dahal and Oli had on Sunday engaged in a heated exchange of words alleging one another for the imbroglio particularly about the “unilateral” postponement of last week’s Standing Committee (SC) meeting despite the fact the Dahal camp went ahead with the meeting sans PM Oli and his close ones.

The Dahal camp has been alleging PM Oli for making unilateral decisions and not heeding to the party directives.

It should be noted that the Dahal camp had labeled the “unilateral” postponement of the SC meeting as “unfortunate”. PM Oli had soon expressed serious concern over the allegation on him.

Monday’s meeting, too, failed to make any headway as both the sides remained adamant to their respective stance.

“They did not budge an inch,” the leader confided adding that Dahal and Khanal urged PM Oli to quit either one of the posts – Prime Minister or the party Chairman, which PM Oli rejected outright.

PM Oli is learned to have told Dahal and Khanal to not seek his resignation but initiate preparations for the general convention. “It will be better if we start preparing to hold the party’s general convention,” the leader quoted PM Oli as saying.

In response, Dahal and Khanal said they were ready to face the general convention. “We, however, want to give a way out to the current crisis,” the source quoted Dahal as saying.

Meanwhile, party General Secretary Bishnu Poudel and other senior leaders have in recent times intensified meeting to bring Dahal and Oli closer to end the dispute.

A source, however, said that Sunday’s meeting can be a starting point for further talks between the two leaders.
