Former Prime Minister and senior leader of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Jhala Nath Khanal refuted news reports regarding the dispute in the leadership of the School Department of the party.
Speaking at a press meet organised by Press Organisation Jhapa in Birtamod today, leader Khanal said that the news regarding the disputes in the leadership of the School Department was just based on the guesses of the media.
“We have to add many departments and advisory committees for which the secretariat meeting is taking a longer time, without knowing this fact, the capital centric media are spreading news of dispute in the leadership of the School Department,” he said.
The said dispute does not exist in all party committees, including the central committee, party secretariat and standing committee, he said, adding that news stories appearing continuously in the media against the reality was a matter of worry.
He said that the leadership of the School Department could be given to any leader as all leaders are capable to handle it. “I can also handle the department if the party gives me its leadership,” he said.
He said that there would be no difference in giving leadership of the School Department to Ishwor Pokharel or Naranyan Kaji Shrestha.
He said that the party would reshuffle the Cabinet after making evaluation of current ministries once the unification process gets completed.
“The ministers are not selected for five years, the party is evaluating their performance. The party has begun preparations to call back some ministers and appoint new,” he said.
