Nepal Maoist Clippings 16/6/2015


Merger talks with UCPN (M) end: Baidya

KATHMANDU, JUN 11 – The Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist has announced annulment of the ongoing process of its unification with the UCPN (Maoist). The party’s announcement comes two days after the UCPN (Maoist) signed a 16-point agreement with Nepali Congress, CPN -UML and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Loktantrik agreeing to federate the country into eight provinces. CPN-M Chairman Baidya has also announced formal dissolution of the existing alliance among five Maoist parties.

Baidya said the unification and alliance would no longer make sense as the Pushpa Kamal Dahal-led party has already adopted the parliamentarian system. Baidya claimed that the two parties were in talks to adopt the ideology of New People’s Revolution, a doctrine formally abandoned by UCPN (Maoist) since the Hetauda convention. “Neither party unification nor the alliance make any meaning now as they have deceived us. We were told that the UCPN (Maoist) would walk away from the parliamentary process,” Baidya said. However, other parties in the alliance, including the Matrika Yadav-led CPN (Maoist), CPN-Revolutionary led by Mani Thapa and CPN (United) led by Pari Thapa, have not made any formal announcement of the dissolution of their alliance. The CPN-Maoist has denounced the 16-point pact describing it as the “reinstatement of regression”. “Consensus on the contentious issues should be sought by holding all-party meeting,” Baidya said, demanding an all-party conference before promulgating new statute.


16-pt pact won’t yield constitution: Baidya

KAVRE, JUN 16 – CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidya has said that the 16-point agreement forged between the major four parties—Nepali Congress, CPN-UML, UCPN (Maoist) and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum- Loktantrik—would not yield a new constitution. He argued that the only option for the promulgation of the new constitution was an all party political conference. Speaking to media persons after the party district meeting at Kavre on Tuesday, leader Baidya said, “This agreement will not give a constitution, that’s why an all party meeting is the only way out.” He further said that everyone should prepare themselves for a new people-oriented revolution. Chairman Baidya, during the occasion, said that the UCPN (M), with whom his party had a working alliance, betrayed them deeply and under the circumstances, dialogues regarding party unification would not be pursued.

“They {UCPN (M)} have gravely betrayed the 10-year people’s war and its accomplishments,” he said, “We haven’t ruled out unification, however we cannot move ahead with the process under these circumstances.” Likewise, the CPN-Maoist Chairman criticised the government of failing to bring appropriate plans for the victims of the April 25 earthquake.

Baidya relieved as leader of 33-party alliance

He has been stripped of the alliance’s leadership from today, the alliance said in a press statement. The alliance will run its activities in coordination with party senior member Shobharam Thapa, read the statement.

16-pt pact reinstated regression: Baidya

KATHMANDU, JUN 10 – CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidya has remarked that the 16-point pact signed by the four big political parties has reinstated regression . Chairman Baidya said so during a press conference organised to announce his party’s dissent over the agreement reached by major parties—Nepali Congress, CPN-UML, UCPN (Maoist) and Madhesi Jandhikar Forum- Loktantrik—on Monday night. “The agreement between the four parties is regressive.
