Kathmandu, July 1 : Today’s session of the Standing Committee meeting of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) primarily concentrated its discussions on two issues: Prime Minister’s claim that India and leaders within the party were planning covertly to oust him and the registration of an application in the Election Commission to establish a separate party named CPN (UML).
