Kathmandu, Mar 24 (ANI): A conflict of seniority has been reportedly seen among the Nepali Congress (NC) leaders following the death of erstwhile President Girija Prasad Koirala.

According to Nepalnews, the conflict surfaced after NC senior leader Sher Bahadur Deuba and acting president Sushil Koirala refused to go to each other's house for an informal meeting.

Deuba, who was placed, second (after Girija Prasad Koirala), in the party hierarchy after the party unification, had called an informal meeting at his residence in Budhanilkantha on Monday.

Acting president Koirala refused to go to Deuba's residence and called another meeting at his residence on Tuesday. Deuba boycotted the meeting.

Meanwhile, talking to reporters after the informal meeting, Nepali Congress Vice President Ram Chandra Poudel said Deuba did not attend the meeting as he was ill.

Nepali Congress has already decided to transform its leadership model from the presidential system to a multi-post leadership system.

The informal meeting at Koirala's residence on Tuesday also decided to organise the Mass Assembly to mourn Koirala's death on April 3, instead of April 1 as decided earlier. (ANI)
