UCPN-UML Wednesday said that no action will be taken against any leader over difference on party decisions.
Issuing a press release on Wednesday after the conclusion of Standing Committee (SC) meeting, the UML said it would not take action against its leaders for having their say.
"All the leaders and cadres have rights to express opinions and conduct discussions," the press release signed by secretary Bishnu Paudel said, "The Standing Committee urges leaders to participate in all kinds of meetings of party, present their views, make them the subjects if intra-party discussions, take decisions in a democratic way and implement the decisions sincerely."
The UML's statement comes at a time when its leaders representing Janajati and Madhesi communities are exerting pressure on the party to go for ethnic identity-based federalism. Multiple identity-based federal model has been the official position of the party.
On Tuesday, Janajati leaders submitted a memorandum to the party leadership, demanding reinstatement of the dissolved Constituent Assembly (CA) for a brief period to promulgate the new constitution by completing the remaining tasks and asking the party to stand for 14-state federal based on ethnic identity. nepalnews.com
