NC youth leaders meet to discuss party rebuilding
Dec 21, 2017-
Following party’s humiliating defeat in the elections for House of Representatives and Provincial Assembly, Nepali Congress youth leaders, including Gagan Thapa, Pradeep Poudel, Jiwan Pariyar, Nabindra Raj Joshi, Guru Raj Ghimire, Dhanaraj Gurung, Badri Pandey, Kundan Kafle and Ram Hari Khatiwada held a meeting in the Capital on Wednesday to discuss party rebuilding.
The leaders agreed to prepare a roadmap on party rebuilding and present it to the party’s Central Working Committee. The roadmap envisages, among others, inclusion of youth leaders at the decision making level, ending factional politics and reinventing party’s ideological position.
The meeting also deliberated on whether to seek resignation of NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba. But could not reach a consensus.
While leaders like Thapa, Gurung and Pandey were in favour of change in the party leadership, leaders close to Deuba were of the view that he alone should not be held responsible for the electoral debacle.
According to Khatiwada, the one thing everyone agreed on was putting an end to factional politics.
