KATHMANDU: Responding to Baburam Bhattarai’s proposal to scrap all the high level party committees except central committee to prepare for the special convention, Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal today proposed a broader convention organising committee including pro-Maoist parties like CPN-Maoist.
However, Mohan Baidhya-led CPN-Maoist is denying the possibility of party unity unless the UCPN-M corrects the party line endorsed by Hetauda convention. After Secretary Netra Bikram Chand officially challenged Chairman Baidhya’s political document, the CPN-M is currently going through internal crisis. A majority of the party leaders and cadres were for a patch-up with the UCPN-M at the earliest.
Coordinator of the Working Alliance Committee of five pro-Maoist parties and general secretary of Revolutionary Communist Party Mani Thapa said there was some problem with CPN-M leaders but other fringe parties would be ready to form single special convention organising committee so as to develop a single communist centre as Dahal had proposed months ago.
“One of the major objectives of the Working Alliance Committee was to develop a single communist centre in the country,” he said.
On the other hand, elected Vice-chairmen Post Bahadur Bogati and Narayan Kaji Shrestha have been opposing the demand of dissolving all the elected committees.
Senior UCPN-M leaders also believe that Baburam Bhattarai could also accept the proposal to include Baidhya and other leaders in the convention organising committee because he is facing difficulty to fight one-to-one with Dahal. Earlier, with the help of Baidhya and Shrestha, Bhattarai had made it to the topmost executive position of the country. While discussing the possible ways to patch up differences this morning, party treasurer Haribol Gajurel said Dahal and Bhattarai had discussed dissolving the existing office bearers, standing committee and politburo and form special convention organising committee as soon as the parties are ready for the same.
Gajurel further said the new conference organising committees would be formed at the districts having two committees while adding necessary members if that could solve the problem and revising the office-bearers to patch up.
The standing committee meeting scheduled for tomorrow will further explore Dahal’s proposal.
With Baidhya’s political training going on at different parts of the country the meeting of the Working Alliance Committee could not happen.
