Deuba hints to make Nidhi sec­ond man in NC

People's Review - - FRONT PAGE - By Our Re­porter

NC pres­i­dent and Prime Min­is­ter Sher Ba­hadur Deuba hinted that he was ap­point­ing Bi­mal­en­dra Nidhi to the va­cant post of the vice pres­i­dent in the party. He gave a clear sig­nal to this by giv­ing Nidhi the re­spon­si­bil­ity of of­fi­ci­at­ing pres­i­dent dur­ing his re­cent state visit to In­dia. Deuba had not given such re­spon­si­bil­ity dur­ing his visit to Sin­ga­pore a few weeks ago. NC Pres­i­dent Deuba has been un­able to ap­point vice-pres­i­dent, gen­eral and co sec­re­tary in the party even 16 months after he was elected the pres­i­dent of the party as sev­eral NC lead­ers are vy­ing for the posts. Khum Ba­hadur Khadka, Purna Ba­hadur Khadka and Gopal Man Shrestha are show­ing their in­ter­est to be­come vice pres­i­dent while Ramesh Lekhaka, Bal Kr­ishna Khand, Gya­nen­dra Ba­hadur Karki want the post of gen­eral sec­re­tary in the party. Dr Shekhar Koirala has pub­licly chal­lenged Deuba's de­ci­sion to give the re­spon­si­bil­ity of of­fi­ci­at­ing pres­i­dent to Nidhi. It seems Deuba is likely to com­plete his term as party pres­i­dent with­out ap­point­ing of­fice bear­ers in the party.
