Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ convened a meeting today at his official residence in Baluwatar, bringing together key leaders from the ruling coalition partners to discuss strategies for enhancing federalism in Nepal.
The meeting, attended by leaders from various political parties and Chief Ministers representing the provinces, centered on the effective implementation and consolidation of federalism in the country.
According to sources from the Prime Minister’s Secretariat, the participants engaged in discussions aimed at addressing coordination issues among the federal, provincial, and local governments to ensure the smooth functioning of federalism. The meeting was primarily focused on identifying solutions to the challenges encountered in the implementation process.
Among the notable figures present were Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba, NC Vice President and Deputy Prime Minister Purna Bahadur Khadka, CPN (Maoist Centre) Deputy General Secretary Barshman Pun, and CPN (Unified Socialist) Chair Madhav Kumar Nepal. Additionally, leaders from the Janata Samajbadi Party, the Democratic Socialist Party, and the Nagarik Unmukti Party also participated in the discussions.
The gathering gains significance as all seven Chief Ministers from the provinces are currently in Kathmandu for the second meeting of the National Coordination Council. This convergence of federal and provincial leadership underscores the collective commitment to address the complexities of federal governance and foster greater cooperation among different tiers of government for the benefit of the nation.
