It is a lie that former Kathmandu district president of the Nepali Congress, Prakash Man Singh, did not give memberships to Congress stalwarts as you claim in 'NC readies for party election' (#14). They have not been excluded at any time from active membership. The reason for this controversy about active membership has more to do with the whims and fancies of the party president who dissolved the democratically elected Kathmandu District Committee and 17 other district committees on 12 April. He knew that these 18 committees would not slavishly toe his line at the 10th General Convention.
