KATHMANDU: Bal Krishna Dhungel who was considered as a confidant of Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has joined the KP Oli faction of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP).

Dhungel, who had been close to Prachanda since the ‘People’s War’, has announced that he has joined the Oli faction.

Dhungel, who spend a jail term after being convicted of murdering Ujjan Kumar Shrestha of Okhaldhunga, said that he was compelled to quit Prachanda camp as ‘he has taken wrong steps of late’.
