Nidhi urges Dahal to not leave ruling coalition

KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress leader Bimalendra Nidhi held a meeting with CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal at the latter’s residence in Khumaltar on Sunday.

The Congress leader, who reached Khumaltar with the message of Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, told Dahal that he cannot be made the prime minister in the first phase and also cannot leave the post of the president, urging him to stay in the coalition, a source said.

In response, Dahal said that he cannot stay in the alliance by abandoning the post of prime minister.

Deuba has been trying to convince Dahal through Ram Chandra Paudel and Prakash Man Singh among other leaders for the past few days.
