Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Co-chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s decision to distribute printed copies of his 19-page proposal to lower chapters of the party has widened the rift in the party, with the Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli faction objecting to the move and the Dahal faction defending it.

Prime Minister’s Press Adviser Surya Thapa said the rival faction’s decision violated the party’s norms and rules and would widen the gulf between the two factions.

Dahal’s personal aide Bishnu Sapkota said since party workers had been asking for copies of the document, the Secretariat printed copies of the document for those who sought it. “The Secretariat didn’t circulate the document among lower chapters of the party. Those who want the document can obtain its copies from the party Secretariat,” he said.
