KATHMANDU: One day after a research report said that UCPN-Maoist would stand on the third position during the election of the constituent assembly, chairperson of UCPN-Maoist Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Wednesday pointed out a need for a ‘single communist centre’ in order to lead the country.
Welcoming four leaders of CPN-UML including former lawmaker Tek Prasad Pokhrel amidst a function in party’s headquarters, Paris Danda on Wednesday, former Prime Minister Dahal claimed that the country could witness progress only if such a centre was formed. Pokharel was elected to the then House of Representative as a CPN-UML lawmaker from Gulmi Constituency No 3 in the 1995 mid-term polls. After the UML’s split, he had been associated with CPN –ML. Also joining the Maoist party were UML leaders Ganesh BK and Baburam Kharel.
A poll conducted by International Organization has said that Nepali Congress will stand as the largest party in the upcoming elections of the constituent assembly followed by CPN-UML and UCPN-Maoist. He tried to justify his claim arguing that 70 per cent people in the country vote for the communist parties. Dahal said the party would focus on the November polls after the extended meeting scheduled of the party scheduled for July 19.
On the issue of intra-party rift, he claimed that the extended meeting would resolve the contentious issues in the party and forge a clear party line.
Meanwhile, the top leaders of UCPN-Maoist are sitting for talks to settle intra-party differences and discuss the purported appointment of Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, who resigned from the post of party vice chairman, as a senior leader of the party. The meeting is also said to be finalizing agendas for the July 19 extended meeting.
