Kathmandu-CPN Chairmen KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal have started talking after nearly two weeks.
The two have talked about resolving the intra-party dispute in the meeting at Balwatar on Saturday. The two chairmen had not met since October 19 despite Oli inviting Dahal to Baluwatar since Tuesday.
Dahal had been refusing to go to Baluwatar due to his grievances about the Karnali dispute, Cabinet reshuffle, Oli’s meeting with Chief of the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) Samant Kumar Goel, murder of a party cadre in Parsa and other issues.
Oli had been sending confidants to Khumaltar every day for the past few days to resume talks. Finance Minister and CPN General Secretary Bishnu Paudel and CPN deputy parliamentary party leader Subash Chandra Nembang had gone to Khumaltar to meet Dahal separately on Wednesday while Chief Minister of Lumbini Shankar Pokharel had met Dahal on Thursday.
Foreign Minister and standing committee member Pradeep Gyawali went to the Dahal residence on Friday. All of the Oli’s confidants had advised Dahal that the two chairmen should move forward together.
