The central committee meeting of the Unified CPN (Maoist) Thursday has started discussion on party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal's political dossier.
The meeting which began at the party's new building in Koteshwor, Kathmandu on Wednesday is expected to endorse Dahal's dossier, build consensus for a national government under Maoist leadership and fix the date for party's next convention.

Dahal in his revised political dossier he presented on June 17 has ruled out "people's revolt" for the time being, instead vying for a national government under Maoist leadership that will work for 'peace, nationality and civilian supremacy'.
Dahal's political paper favors "peaceful means" to achieve the goals of drafting the constitution and taking the peace process to a logical conclusion. It states that the People's revolt will happen only if peaceful means fail to achieve the goals.
Similarly, it also states that Army integration and constitution-drafting will go side by side.
On Wednesday, the party had formed 14 separate groups of central committee members and politburo members to start deliberation on party chairman's political dossier.
The Maoist central committee will have to endorse the document before it is presented to the party's general convention, which has not taken place for 18 years.
During the recent politburo meeting, senior Maoist leader Mohan Baidya, who leads the hardline faction of the party, had stressed that the time has come for the party to prepare for a 'people's revolt'.
Meanwhile, the Maoist party moved its headquarters from a rented building in Buddhanagar to its posh building in Koteshwor on Wednesday.
The building originally built by a businessman to start a resort was bought by the Maoist trade union for a whooping Rs 30 million two months ago.
Maoist chairman Dahal inaugurated the office.
Interestingly, it is said that the building is haunted and the businessman was having a tough time finding a buyer before the Maoists showed interest in acquiring it. nepalnews.com
