I am ready to end personal bitterness: Nepal sends message to Oli

Senior CPN leader Madhav Kumar Nepal has sent a message to Prime Minister (PM) KP Sharma Oli that he is ready to end the personal bitterness between the two.
Nepal has sent the message through central member Dr Bansidhar Mishra who visited Nepal Thursday night.
“To look for consensus amongst disagreements is the party’s process and procedure. I am firm on that. But I am still sad at the kind of personal bitterness that arose between me and Oli. This personal confrontation must be resolved soon,” a source quoted Nepal as telling Mishra.
Nepal told Mishra that he has no ill feelings toward the PM, and sent the message that he does not want deterioration in the personal relationship with Oli and is ready for resolution of the problem in a cordial manner.
Mishra has already sent the message to the PM through the latter’s public contact advisor Achyut Mainali and press advisor Kundan Aryal. “The message of Mahdav Nepal has already been sent to the PM. Their relationship will probably become warm by the time he returns from Singapore,” a Baluwatar source confirmed with Setopati.
Oli and Nepal had resorted to personal bickering during the secretariat meeting held before Oli left for Singapore on Thursday.
Nepal took exception to Oli’s proposal that the party should seek his consent before taking any decision during his stay in Singapore saying that if the party can take decision without Nepal’s agreement, it should also do so without Oli’s consent.
The two leaders then traded personal barbs with Oli reminding Nepal who the party chairman is.
Nepal then tried to end the bitter bickering, according to a leader close to him, by wishing Oli a speedy recovery. Oli then fired back, according to the leader, saying he does not need get well wish from a person who wishes for his death.
“How can you even think in such criminal and lowly manner?” the leader quoted Nepal as asking after Oli refused to accept Nepal’s get well wish.
Leaders close to Oli, on the other hand, counter that Nepal opposed the proposal by General Secretary Bishnu Paudel to pass a minute wishing speedy recovery of Oli.
