Until Tuesday night, ruling Nepal Communist Party chairmen KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal were baying for each other’s blood. They refused to see each other eye to eye. But on Wednesday, the party held its Secretariat meeting, the major bone of contention between them, and both of them were present in the meeting. The meeting ended with a decision that the next meeting will be held on November 28.

Not just observers and analysts but even some party members were baffled—as to how things changed overnight.

Multiple factors worked, say party insiders. However, multiple leaders the Post spoke with said they were not in a position to say how long such a tense situation in the party will continue.
