Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) has officially dismissed Dr. Mukul Dhakal from his positions as both General Secretary and Spokesperson, following his suspension earlier this week.

A central committee (CC) meeting of the party held on Tuesday meeting relieved him of his position as General Secretary and the Spokesperson based on the recommendation of the discipline commission.

Dakal faced music from the party after the discipline commission advocated for his removal from even the general membership. However, Dhakal still retains the general membership of the party. 

The office-bearer further said that he has been granted a deadline of 35 days for an appeal. RSP had on Wednesday suspended Dhakal for a week on the ground of violaing party discipline.

On Wednesday, he attended the meeting wearing a mask with a black cross.

The internal rift of the party came to the surface after the report prepared by Dhakal after conducting a one-month-long field visit was unveiled.

Dhakal in the report argues that RSP will not become even a national party in the upcoming general elections if President Rabi Lamichhane continues to lead the party unilaterally.

Over 90 percent of CC members had opposed Dhakal’s demand to live-stream the meeting.
