GODAWARI: The Parliamentary Party meeting of the CPN-UML party’s Sudurpaschim Province is underway.
As many as 20 party lawmakers are participating in the meeting. However, three lawmakers — Ratan Thapa, Galbu Bohara and Liladhar Bhatta – who are close to Chairman KP Oli faction of the party have not participated in the meeting convened by Prakash Shah, Minister for Internal Affairs and Law.
Today’s meeting was called after the UML decided to withdraw its support to the province government.
The meeting is expected to decide whether to withdraw support to the current state government or continue its support.
Even though the Center has decided to withdraw its support, the majority of UML lawmakers in the province are in favor of Madhav Kumar Nepal.
