Nepal Students Union to hold general convention on Sunday

Kathmandu, Aug. 6 : The Nepal Students Union (NSU) after a decade-long hiatus will on Sunday hold its 11th general convention in Kathmandu.

Nepal Students Union spokesperson U.P. Lamichhane confirmed that over 3,300 representatives will attend the three-day jamboree of the Nepali Congress' student wing at Bhrikutimandap, reports the Kathmandu Post.

This will be the NSU convention since the unification of the Nepali Congress faction led by Sher Bahadur Deuba with the mother party in 2007.

After being elected to the Nepali Congress president in March, Deuba had urged all of sister organisations of the party to hold their general conventions within the next six months.

The party formed a five-member panel under central committee member Prakash Sharan Mahat to ensure the convention is held within the stipulated time.

Meanwhile, the student leaders said that all preparations for the convention were in the final stages.
