The two chairmen of the ruling Communist Party of Nepal — Prime Minister KP Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal — have finally taken an initiative to complete the delayed integration of the lower level party organisations after the Ram Bahadur Thapa-led task force failed to the accomplish the task.
The nine members of the taskforce were divided instead of completing the task. A few days ago, when Thapa tried to submit a report without holding discussion on it, the dispute of the taskforce had spilled in the public. However, after changing words between the two camps, the taskforce on Monday submitted its report to the party secretariat at the official residence of Prime Minister Oli.
Though the failure of the taskforce in completing its tasks has further delayed the unity process between the organisations of the former rivals — CPN-UML and the Maoist Centre, it has pleased the two chairmen as they have become free to select their men in the integrated organisations.
According to CPN Spokesperson Narayankaji Shrestha, a joint meeting of the Secretariat comprising all members of the taskforce would be held on February 21 and necessary policy and decision would be taken regarding settling the issues of organisational unity.
Although the Secretariat, standing committee, central committee and provincial committee have been formed after the unification between the then CPN (UML) and CPN (Maoist), issues related to district and inline organisations are yet to be settled.
It is expected that the joint meeting would finalize all the issues related to party unification.
