Parties having intra-party rift ahead of CA polls; Defectors of CPN-Maoist join UCPN-Maoist

KATHMANDU: With the approaching date for the election of the constituent assembly, the political parties have been suffering from different problems. Few CPN-Maoist leaders who had defected from the party and formed CPN-Maoist (Revolutionary) on Tuesday have joined UCPN-Maoist.

Leaders Mahendra Paswan, Dhiraj Patel and Hari Gyanwali joined the UCPN-Maoist. They had yesterday dissociated themselves from Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist saying the party is having coalition with royalists and anti-federalist forces. However their move is taken as an attempt to ensure ticket in the upcoming election of the constituent assembly.

The CPN-Maoist has been facing problem to retain party leaders as many leaders have been deserting the party as the party failed to prove its split from the mother party. The party’s decision not to take part in the election is costing dearer to the Maoist.

Meanwhile, CPN-UML leader Nirmal Bhattarai, a close aide of party Chairman Jhala Nath Khanal, has quit the party expressing his dissatisfaction over the nomination of party candidates to contest the CA polls.

Bhattarai, also member of UML state management committee and national representatives’ council, met Chairman Khanal on Tuesday and handed over his resignation letter. He had also been working as secretary of Chairman Khanal’s secretariat.

Expressing his reservations, Bhattarai complained that the party has adopted the policy of favoritism rather than the hard work when it comes to evaluating the cadres. He had been expecting nomination from the party for contesting the CA from Bhaktapur district constituency-2. Bhattarai claimed that though he had majority support in the regional committee, party leader KP Oli used his clout to influence cadres and forcefully recommended Mahesh Basnet.

Similarly, the Nepali Congress (NC) leaders based in Nuwakot have argued that Central Working Committee (CWC) members Dr. Ram Saran Mahat and Arjun Narshing KC should not be allowed tickets to contest the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) polls from Nuwakot.

Speaking at a program organized in the Capital on Wednesday, they claimed that the constituency no. 2 and 3 in Nuwakot, where Mahat and KC are likely to get the tickets to contest in CA polls, should rather be contested by leaders representing local Tamang majority. The names that the local leaders have come up with as the candidates of constituency no. 2 and 3 are – Mahendra Thing and Bahadur Singh Tamang. Nuwakot is also the home district to both KC as well as Mahat.
