KATHMANDU: The Standing Committee (SC) meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has been postponed for the fourth time.

According to Surya Thapa, Press Advisor to the Prime Minister, who is also the deputy chief of Publicity Department of the party, the SC meeting has been postponed for 11 am Friday.

The meeting which was scheduled for 11 am today has been postponed stating that the two party chairmen Pushpa Kamal Dahal and KP Sharma Oli are holding one-on-one talks to narrow down the intra-party feud, informed Thapa.

The Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Prime Minister KP Oli are holding ‘one-on-one’ talks today as well.

The two leaders had on Tuesday agreed to sit for another round of talks on Wednesday at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar.

The duo are in ‘serious’ talks aimed at narrowing down the differences that have escalated since the last two weeks within the party.

Chairman Dahal had earlier insisted ‘one-on-one’ talks to thrash out the disputes between the two leaders.

The intra-party feud has taken a new height after Chairman Dahal and senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal demanded Prime Minister’s resignation from both the posts.

The two leaders are at loggerheads in the last few weeks over some serious issues, particularly after PM Oli alleged the dissident faction of dancing to the tune of India to oust him.

The party leadership is currently under pressure to keep the party intact since around 53 central committee members of the party has already initiated a signature campaign to convene the party’s central committee meeting.

They have argued that the meeting of the 441-member central committee will be more impactful than the 45-member Standing Committee.

According to the NCP statute, the leadership will have to call the meeting of the central committee if 25 percent, i.e., 110 members signed the document.
