KATHMANDU: A day after the Unified CPN Maoist announced to launch a Federalist Democratic Alliance with an aim to strengthen and elongate the life of the incumbent government, the CPN-Maoist today launched the Nepal Federal People’s Republican Front (NRPRF) with eight parties.
Organising a press conference, the CPN-Maoist Vice-Chairman CP Gajurel announced the front comprises eight political parties and organisations. Those involved in the front are the CPN Unified, Revolutionary Communist Party Nepal, Tamsaling Nepal National Party, Nepal Nagarik Party, Janamukti Party and Tharu Mukti Sangram. The United People’s Movement Struggle Committee formed to topple the Baburam Bhattarai-led government has now transformed into NFPRF.
The front led by Gajurel has also announced to launch movement to oust the Bhattarai-led government and form the next government under the leadership of revolutionaries.
According to Gajurel, the front will organise interaction, conferences and demonstration from August 14 to September 1 throughout the nation. He claimed that the front would become the third front in the Nepali political scenario.
He further said the front would neither accept the alliance formed by Baluwatar to extend the life of the government nor the one made to form the NC-led government.
The CPN-Maoist vice-chairman added that the front would lay claim on the leadership of the next government as all the parties have failed to deliver anything to the people. The front will play a key role to create basis for the round table conference of all the sectors of the society. Gajurel said the front would organise a broad interaction programme on August 14.
Meanwhile, Chairman of Unified CPN Maoist Pushpa Kamal Dahal has claimed that the Federal Democratic Alliance (FDA) among the pro-federalist parties would rather help to end the existing political impasse.
However, the major political parties in opposition have warned that the alliance could further the differences between the parties thus minimizing the chances of consensus.
Dahal further tried to justify the formation of FDA claiming that the alliance among the progressive and pro-federalist forces would help make the dialogues with Nepali Congress and UML decisive. He, however, said there was no alternative to consensus among the parties to end the political deadlock.
