Kathmandu, Nepal, April 19, 2019: As the deadline set by the Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to surrender the Netra Bikram Chand led Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) ends on Thursday, the government is mulling the idea to deal with the party in days to ahead.
Though the government had already instructed the security agencies to adopt stern measure against of the CPN, the government head Nepal Communist Party (NCP) seem divided to treat the CPN as the criminal group.
Reliable source claims that some leaders of the government head NCP have been insisting to treat the CPN as political force.
Though co-chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal was targeted by the CPN, he has been insisting for the dialogue rather than adopting stern measure as the rival side wants, a leader of the party said preferring anonymity.
Reliable source of the party also claims that the government head NCP has instructed some leaders to reach out the CPN with the proposal of dialogue with the government. However, such an attempt for the dialogue is not revealed officially.
PM Oli had issued a 35-day deadline to Chand to surrender arms and sit for talks with the government on March 14.
However, the CPN had issued a counter-ultimatum demanding that the government lift the ban on his outfit by April 13 or face the prospect of a parallel government.
As both the sides have ignored the ultimatum issued by each other, confrontations are likely if the hidden dialogue team failed to mend the relations immediately.
