KATMANDOU: CPN-UML vice-chairman Dr Bhim Rawal is again skeptical of party chairman KP Oli’s sincerity towards the 10-point deal reached earlier by a group of joint work formed by both Oli and leader Madhav Kumar Nepal.

Disappointed by Party Chairman Oli’s reluctance to meet with the leaders of a disgruntled faction once close to the Nepalese leader, Dr Rawal noted on Sunday that the president is unlikely to implement the deal.

He made the remarks during a discussion among the leaders of his group.

Previously, President Oli had rejected the ultimatum issued by 57 leaders, including Rawal, to implement the 10 agreements.

If Oli does not implement the ten-point deal by next Wednesday, some Nepalese faction leaders still reiterating party unity are expected to join the new party.

A meeting of pro-unity leaders held in Maharajgunj on Friday concluded that there would be a revolt if the party chairman did not implement the agreement by Wednesday.
