KATHMANDU: Lumbini Chief Minister and Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Standing Committee member Shankar Pokharel has said that the leadership has lost discretion in the conflict of interest.

He took to Facebook to say that the problem has arisen within the party after the leadership lost its discretion due to selfishness.

“When the leadership loses its discretion in a conflict of interest, the activities to weaken the party and the leadership from the top to the bottom begins,” he said.

Chief Minister Pokharel pointed out the weakness of the leadership over the incident of chanting slogans against Standing Committee member Surendra Pandey during a program in Chitwan.

Earlier, senior leaders Jhalanath Khanal and Madhav Kumar Nepal had issued statements condemning the incident.

Cadres close to Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli had mistreated leader Pandey at the ‘Meeting and Training’ program of the NCP Chitwan Rapti Municipal Committee on Saturday morning.

While Pandey was speaking at the program, a group of 15/20 people from outside the committee had entered the meeting hall and stopped Pandey from speaking by sloganeering.

They had accused leader Pandey of making a wrong statement against Prime Minister Oli and supporting a faction.
