CPN-UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli and CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Wednesday held a one-on-one meeting for around three hours to discuss next steps for party unification.
The two parties are preparing to merge for last seven months, but their efforts are yet to materialise. However, it has recently been reported that the two leaders have already forged agreements on all contentious issues and the unification is most likely to be announced in the third week of this month.
A source at the secretariat of Prime Minister Oli says the two leaders today focused on developing and strengthening the environment of trust between the two parties.
More particularly, the two leaders discussed suspicions created by a recent tweet of PM Oli, in which he had reportedly doubted the Maoist Centre’s commitment to the unification.
But, Oli told Dahal today that he did not mean that, and it was just a failure to express the intention in right words, according to the source. Source: Online khabar
