The Nepali Congress (NC) has intensified efforts to form a broad democratic alliance.
The NC's move follows the announcement of the formation of an alliance among the main leftist forces--main opposition CPN-UML, ruling CPN (Maoist Centre) and Naya Shakti Nepal--yesterday.
Talks were held in the meeting of the NC central working execution committee at Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba's official residence in Baluwatar, said NC leader Bimalendra Nidhi. PM and NC President Dueba, senior leader Ram Chandra Poudel, and members of the committee were present in the meeting.
NC has begun the discussion to form democratic alliance after major two leftist parties UML and Maoist-Centre together with Naya Shakti party agreed to form electoral alliance and go for party unification among the leftist parties.
It is reported that the meeting will continue tomorrow as well.
