KATHMANDU: Spokesperson of UCPN-Maoist Agni Prasad Sapkota has remarked that the people themselves would boycott those who are opposing and talking about boycotting the Constituent Assembly (CA) elections slated for November 19.
Speaking at a regular press conference held at the party office at Parisdanda today, Sapkota said special initiatives would be taken for ensuring the participation of the political parties opposing the CA election through talks and dialogue.
He said that his party was ready to hold discussions on expansion of the HLPC and the reconstitution of the Council of Ministers, among others, for creating an environment for polls, but ruled out any compromise regarding the annulment of the 11-point agreement signed on March 14 and the 25-point presidential decree regarding removal of the constitutional obstacles for holding the CA.
Meanwhile, talking about the internal dispute of the party, Sapkota informed that the party will go for special general convention if the plenum fails to address this issue. Sapkota said party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal is going to propose a new organizational policy at the plenum.
According to him, the party is now going to be “mass-based cadre party” after exercising the “cadre-based” organizational model. The Maoist party has called the central plenum starting from July 19 as the recent central committee meeting failed pick some of the office-bearers amid dispute. The party landed into controversy after vice chairperson of the party Dr. Baburam Bhattarai resigned from the post of vice-chairperson of the party following intra-party rift over the appointment at key posts of the party.
In a different context, the former Minister said that Baburam Bhattarai has not given the party membership but has only quit his post as Vice-Chairman. The extended meeting of the party would take tangible decision in this regard, he added.
