The ongoing standing committee meeting of the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has stressed the need to forge national consensus to hold dialogue with India through diplomatic channel to return Nepali territory included in the new map of the country.
Most of the leaders speaking in the meeting underway since Wednesday said no compromise could be made with any force regarding the affairs of nationality, sovereignty and territorial integrity and no activities intruding Nepal’s land would be tolerable.
“The standing committee members underlined the need to reach to the point to acquire constitutionally-stipulated land of Nepal through national unity,” NCP spokesperson Narayan Kaji Shrestha told journalists after the meeting.
Some 21 standing committee members had aired their opinion taking part in the deliberations on the agenda related to the encroachment of Nepal’s land and border.
The members recalled the task of safeguarding territorial integrity by including the new map with all territory of the country in the schedule of the Constitution as historical effort.
Among the members articulating their opinion today were Devendra Poudel, Surendra Pandey, Subas Nembang, Janardan Sharma, Girirajmani Pokharel, Raghujee Pant, Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, Satya Narayan Mandal, Yubaraj Gyawali, Nanda Kumar Prasain, Lekhraj Bhatta, Pradeep Gyawali, Mani Thapa, Ghanashyam Bhusal, Shakti Basnet, Bamdev Gautam, Yogesh Bhattarai, Prithvi Subba Gurung, Iswor Pokharel, Bishnu Pukar Shrestha and Pushpa Kandel.
On Friday too, the leaders discussed the agendas of border encroachment. The next SC meeting of the ruling NCP is scheduled for June 30 in Baluwatar.
The leaders in the next meetings would hold discussions on border issues and different aspects of coronavirus infection, its control and prevention measures.
Upon completion of the issues, the SC meeting would enter into the agenda of government’s performance and party functioning.
Party Spokesperson Shrestha said that Prime Minister and party Chairman KP Sharma Oli appeared at the meeting and went after a while informing the leaders about his health condition.
The meeting was started on Wednesday after the chairman duo Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ put forth their opinions and different issues of border and party’s internal subject matters were discussed on Thursday and Friday.
The SC meeting of the ruling party convened after a long gap is expected to take crucial decision on party’s internal politics and country’s contemporary dynamics.
The meeting is also likely to take the party’s stance on US Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), and control and prevention of COVID-19.
