Kathmandu,23 Nov 2014: The plenum meeting of CPN-Maoist central committee that kicked off today is also being attended by the dissenting faction of party Secretary Netra Bikram Chand, whose latest activities have riled the party.
The session meeting began at Kupandole-based office of the sister organisations at 12:00 noon. Earlier the meeting was summoned for yesterday, but it was postponed as the Chand faction informed the party leadership that it was still undecided whether to attend the meeting.
With increasing gap with the establishment side, the Chand faction had boycotted the party politburo meeting and CC meeting held last week. Secretary Chand held a separate gathering of party cadres in Kapilvastu village last week that fueled the intra-party rift.
The party called a plenum along with the participation of party central advisors and alternative central members with a view to clearing the intra-party disputes.
In the meeting, the Chand faction is expected to propose for a special general convention of the party.
