On the other hand, leaders loyal to Oli accused the leadership of not supporting the government led by the party and speaking in favour of a national government inclusive of the Maoists.
In an attempt to resolve the dispute in the Kathmandu district committee, the party decided to ask the dissident local leaders not to hold a separate tea reception they have been planning. Party chairman Khanal will personally discuss the issue with the district leaders to resolve the differences.
The standing committee also decided to intensify dialogue with other major parties to end the political impasse.
Likewise, the party has decided to hold the politburo meeting by mid November.
Meanwhile, UML chairman Khanal is scheduled to visit India from November 3 "at the invitation of the Indian Prime Minister".
In the past few weeks, a number of political leaders including Rastriya Janashakti Party chairman and former Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa, Madhesi Janadhikar Forum chairman Upendra Yadav and UML leader Oli had visited India.
Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, who returned from China after a nine-day long visit last week, is also said to be planning a trip to New Delhi soon. nepalnews.com
