Scuffle at the NCP-Kanchanpur party office after the Prachanda-Nepal faction broke the lock of the Oli faction


A scuffle broke out at the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) office in Kanchanpur. A meeting of the Prachanda-Nepal group was held on December 27 at 12:30 pm. The Oli group locked the main gate, office and assembly hall in three places saying that the faction's meeting could not be held at the party office. 

The lock on the main gate was broken by the Prachanda-Nepal group. The local administration increased the presence of the Armed Police Force and Nepal Police after a scuffle broke out between the cadres of both the parties.

Kamal Rokaya, a central member of the ANNFSU on behalf of the Oli faction, said that no one should hold a factional program unless there is an official at the crossroads of the party.
