KATHMANDU: As part of its struggle against the party leadership for being biased while preparing the list of Proportional Representation (PR) candidates, the disgruntled camp of the Nepali Congress (NC) is organizing a tea reception today.
“We have decided to organize the tea reception on the occasion of Dashain as part of the struggle at Battisputali in the capital,” NC leader Gururaj Ghimire, said.
According to him, the leaders will also have a meeting to decide their future strategy and protest programs.
The office-bearers and central members of the disgruntled camo led by leader Dr. Shekhar Koirala and party General Secretary Gagan Thapa have been invited to the tea party.
On Wednesday, the faction staged a sit-in at the party central office in Sanepa to pressurize party President Sher Bahadur Deuba to revise the list of the proportional candidates.
Leaders, including Jagadish Narsingh KC, Gururaj Ghimire, and Bhupendra Jung Shahi, among others are protesting for equal opportunities and justice in the party.
It may be noted that party President Deuba has already hinted at the possibility of revising the PR list.
Deuba has already initiated consultations within the party on the issue.
