SURKHET, Sept 21: The CPN-Maoist formed a 106- member national volunteer bureau under the leadership of Padam Bahadur Thapa in Surkhet on Friday. The bureau also includes former members of the Young Communist League.
Speaking at a function organized to announce formation of the bureau, district secretary of the party Thammar Bista YCL had to be reformed due to the revisionist nature of the wing.
The newly formed bureau has Thapa as district in-charge and Mukti Dhamala as president, according to Bista. Addressing the function, Bista claimed that the bureau would not earn disrepute like the YCL.
Bureau coordinator of Bheri-Karnali state committee Krishna Raj BK urged the youths to defend the country from foreign interference.
