NC leader Sher Bahadur Deuba has asked the party chairman Sushil Koirala to implement "one person one post" policy. Deuba wants vice-chairman and parliamentary party leader Ram Chandra Paudel to resign from one of his posts. He also warned Koirala he would vote Paudel out if he did not step down voluntarily.
Deuba's supporters are conducting a signature campaign against Paudel, and even Arjun Narsingh KC and Kul Bahadur Gurung have signed. Koirala had promised Deuba he would be leading the party if and when the NC goes into the government. It was only after this understanding that Koirala was able to nominate Paudel and Krishna Sitaula as Vice-Chairman and General Secretary respectively. Now Koirala is reluctant to replace Paudel as parliamentary party leader saying it is still not clear if the party will join the consensus government. This has upset Deuba.
