NEPALGUNJ — General Secretary of the Nepali Congress Dr Shashank Koirala has said that groupism taking place in the party has divided leaders and cadres.
Leader Koirala said the NC would not be strong until groupsim exists in the party.
At a press meet organised by Nepal Press Union, Banke, here today, he said the NC would be very weak if there was no unity among all organisations of the party.
Responding a query, the NC General Secretary said, “Time has not come to evaluate the activities of the incumbent government. But, the government has become failure to show right path to the country.”
Meanwhile, addressing the cadres gathering at Nepalgunj today, he said it was the responsibility of the leadership to take the party head by bringing all at the same place.
Similarly, NC Chief Whip Bal Krishna Khand stressed that cadres should correct themselves rather than blaming others.Follow @gorkhapost

DOLPA — Karma Gurung, Chairman of Dolpo Buddha Rural Municipality-5 in Upper Dolpa, was arrested on charge of idol theft from Kathmandu. A team of police personnel from the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) has arrested Gurung from Bauddha in the capital city.
Police said that Ward Chairman Karma was held for allegedly stealing Buddha idols from Rahap Monastery situated in She-Phoksundo Rural Municipality-4.
Gurung, an independent candidate, was elected the ward chair in the recent local level elections but later joined the Nepal Communist Party (NCP) after the unification of two communist parties.
Likewise, Ukren Pasang Gurung, 41, and Pasang Lundup Gurung of She-phoksundo Rural Municipality; Jhyampachhuldim Lama, 41, and Tshering Dawa Gurung, 43, of Dolpo Buddha Rural Municipality were also held from a special team of CIB.
Asked about the arrest of ward chairman, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) of Dolpa District Police Office Awadesh Bista confirmed Karma Gurung’s arrest on charge of idol theft and added that further investigations were ongoing.
A total of 42 Buddha’s idols were stolen from Rahap Monastery some eight years ago but the locals had noticed the issue just some four months ago.Follow @gorkhapost
