Hitman Shakya is chosen as the in-charge of the Special Province Committee and Yesodha Subedi is co-in-charge. Co-in-charges for some provinces are yet to be decided, said Spokesperson Sapkota.

The meeting also decided that the people's representatives of the federal, provincial and local levels will continue to discharge their duties as per the elected responsibilities.

The meeting also changed the date for launching the party's Terai Madhes National Awareness Campaign from March 14 to March 28 citing lack of time for preparations, said Sapkota. 

Similarly, the Himal-Pahad-Terai (Mountain-Hill-Terai) National Unity campaign will be launched on April 27.

The meeting also discussed contemporary political issues concerning loan shark victims and dairy farmers among others and drew the attention of the government to resolve them convulsively, said Sapkota.

Meanwhile, the party's Deputy General-Secretary Janardan Sharma has expressed his note of dissent on the division of responsibilities in the Standing Committee meeting. He expressed his reservations about the proposed division of responsibilities. He argued, "The division of responsibilities is not by the purpose of formation of the party. It seems that the responsibilities were delegated with the hangover of the legislation session." (RSS)
