CPN-M’s CC meet resumes‚ Baidhya to address today
KATHMANDU: The Central Committee (CC) meeting of CPN-Maoist resumed at the party’s Newa State Committee office in Kupondole on Saturday morning. The CC members are reporting at the meeting, which started at 10:30 am. As many as 10 leaders are airing their views in today’s meeting. “After the reporting of CC members concludes, Chairman Mohan Baidhya will address the meeting,” a Maoist leader told THT Online over phone.
The meeting is expected to come up with decision whether the party should accept nominated seats offered to join the CA or not. However, the party, which boycotted the November 19 polls strongly, has already made it clear that it will neither join the CA nor the government. It is likely that the meeting will conclude today, amending the political report presented by Chairman Baidhya and endorsing it. More than 200 leaders, including 151 CC members and 50 central advisers are taking part in the meeting that started from December 23.
