The district pres­i­dents who heav­ily crit­i­cised the party lead­er­ship for the party's de­feat in elec­tions, how­ever, were not happy with the out­come of the assem­bly as it con­cluded with a rou­tine prom­ise of end­ing groupism and en­er­giz­ing the party, with­out tak­ing any con­crete mea­sure to re­form the party. de­cided to amend the party's statute in the up­com­ing Ma­hasamiti meeting in­cor­po­rat­ing var­i­ous sug­ges­tions pre­sented in the assem­bly, main­tain unity in the party and move for­ward to tackle the chal­lenges. It urged the Cen­tral Work­ing Com­mit­tee of the party to start na­tion-wide train­ing ear­li­est by an­nounc­ing the year 2075 as a 'train­ing year'. The party also crit­i­cised the gov­ern­ment and de­cided to play an ef­fec­tive role and present it­self pow­er­fully against the gov­ern­ment's au­to­cratic and an­tipeo­ple ten­dency in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Na­tional Assem­bly,

and the lo­cal lev­els. “The party stands to safe­guard the es­tab­lished demo­cratic norms and val­ues, demo­cratic repub­lic, fed­er­al­ism, press free­dom, in­de­pen­dent ju­di­ciary, trade union rights and other free­doms pro­vi­sioned in the Con­sti­tu­tion,” read the dec­la­ra­tion. The dec­la­ra­tion stated that the gov­ern­ment's move to amend the Con­sti­tu­tion was eth­i­cal and a po­lit­i­cal vic­tory of the NC, and stated it would be a new con­spir­acy against the Mad­hes if the gov­ern­ment de­layed amend­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion. The party crit­i­cised the gov­ern­ment for not pro­vid­ing ad­di­tional Rs. vic­tims and Rs. 5,000 to the se­nior citizens as so­cial al­lowance as per the de­ci­sions taken by the gov­ern­ment led by party chief Sher Ba­hadur Deuba. It also ac­cused the gov­ern­ment of mov­ing on the path of anti-fed­er­al­ism by weak­en­ing the prov­inces. Fed up with the crit­i­cism from the lead­ers of the ri­val fac­tion and district chairs, party chief stayed at a Sau­raha-based ho­tel to over­come the ten­sion af­ter concluding the He­tauda meeting. The party chief's stay in Chit­wan is por­trayed as a way to over­come the ten­sion and pres­sure he faced dur­ing the assem­bly of the district
