KATHMANDU: Senior Vice-chairman of Unified CPN-Maoist Mohan Baidhya, who is all set to form a new communist party, along with other Maoist hardliners, on Sunday proposed the name of the new party.
While presenting his political proposal at National Cadres Gathering at Sherpa Sewa Kendra in Bouddha, Baidhya proposed Nepal Communist Party-Revolutionary as the new name.
Citing the need of a new revolutionary communist party, Baidhya said the new party is inevitable for what he alleged Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Baburam Bhattarai have betrayed the revolution and deviated from the party line.
Baidhya along with Dahal and Bhattarai had led the decade long Maoist insurgency in the country until they joined the mainstream politics with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord in 2006.
Baidhya faction in quest of split
KATHMANDU: In today’s closed-door session, Baidya presented a political proposal accusing party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of languishing in revisionist path and not being transformed despite heavy efforts for it, according to a participant.
In his political document, Baidya proposed for moving ahead by separating from the party.
Meanwhile, the UCPN (Maoist) has urged the dissident faction led by Vice-chairman Baidya to conclude the gathering by approving the proposal for party unity.
A meeting of the party standing committee members held at Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s residence in Lazimpat this morning urged the disgruntled faction to pass the proposal for unity, as there was no alternative to party unity, party spokesperson Dinanath Sharma said.
Sharma said, “Revolution cannot be accomplished after split in the party. Revolution will be possible through unity. International experiences have also shown this. So, we urged them to be ready for party unity.”
Similarly, the meeting has also urged the opposition parties for national consensus. Likewise, the meeting also decided to work to make the national cadres’ gathering scheduled for June 29- July 1 a success.
