KATHMANDU: A couple of days after relinquishing the party Vice Chairman post, Maoist leader Dr. Baburam Bhattarai has said that he made the decision to discourage the tendency of ‘power hungry’ attitude within the party.
Talking to Kantipur Television, a popular television channel of the Country, Bhattarai said that the party leaders, of late, had cultivated the attitude of seeking power for personal benefits.
The attitude, Bhattarai said, was a result of continuous hobnobbing with the leaders of other political parties. Bhattarai also claimed that his move was not aimed at creating obstacle to the party president. He said that he tried to set a good trend in the party so that the party will move towards positive direction.
The Maoist leader said that the parties will try their best to woo the poll-opposing parties including the CPN-Maoist. Even if they don’t comply with the CA polls, elections will go ahead, said the influential Maoist leader.
Meanwhile addressing a program in the Capital on Monday spokesperson of UCPN-Maoist Agni Sapkota has claimed that party leader Baburam Bhattarai will assume the post of vice chairman after the party’s plenum starting July 19.
Sapkota maintained that Bhattarai has simply tried to send out a message that same person remaining in leadership position for a long time in a communist party is a wrong practice. “Though his move is intended to give a message, it is not timely,” the Maoist spokesperson added.
Bhattarai had announced his resignation as vice chairman in the wake of continued intra-party wrangling over the vacant office-bearer posts. He also announced that he would only work as a general member of the party. Party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal is yet to approve his resignation.
