The meeting also addressed the postponement of the Terai Madhes National Awareness Campaign, rescheduling it from March 14 to March 28 due to insufficient preparation time.

Additionally, the Himal-Pahad-Terai (Mountain-Hill-Terai) National Unity campaign will be launched on April 27.

Moreover, the meeting discussed various contemporary political issues, including concerns regarding loan shark victims and dairy farmers, urging the government to resolve them promptly, Sapkota added.

However, Deputy General-Secretary Janardan Sharma expressed dissent during the Standing Committee meeting, questioning the proposed division of responsibilities.

Sharma argued that the allocation of responsibilities did not align with the party’s objectives and seemed influenced by the legislative session’s aftermath.
