Today, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is flying to Dhangadhi, the provincial headquarters of Sudurpaschim Province, to address the ruling Nepal Communist Party’s fourth extended plenum.
The PM will also address a mass public meeting to be organized in Dhangadhi, said Prime Minister’s Press Advisor Surya Thapa in a Facebook message.
This is the first time that the Oli-led faction is organizing a mass assembly outside Kathmandu after the dissolution of the House of Representatives (HoR).
Industry Minister Lekh Raj Bhatta, Labor Minister Gauri Shankar Chaudhari, Forest Minister Prem Ale, and General Administration Minister Ganesh Singh Thagunna are at the location for the last four days to make preparations to present over 50,000 people in the open forum.
Meanwhile, the security has been tightened at the location ahead of PM Oli’s visit. Chiefs of Nepal Police, Armed Police Force, and Nepal Army have arrived at the airport in the morning today. A large number of security personnel have been deployed from the airport to the open forum.
Earlier on Wednesday, a provincial committee meeting of the Oli-led faction of the NCP extended the provincial committee to a 551-member committee. The meeting also elected Industry Minister Lekh Raj Bhatta as the Chief Coordinator of the Sudurpashchim Province.
The Election Commission (EC) on Thursday ordered both the factions of the National Communist Party (NCP) to send revised reports within seven days.
The Commission sent separate letters addressing PM Oli and Kamal Dahal, the chairpersons of two factions of NCP, in line with Rule 25 (4) of the Regulations for Political Parties, 2074 BS.
“If the situation arises that no name, statute, stamp, flag, and election symbol of the party can be changed, the Commission gives a seven-day deadline to the concerned groups to resend the amended details,” states the Rule.
Both the factions have been claiming the legitimacy of the NCP after the party was split into two with the HoR dissolution by PM Oli.
