Oli is being misguided to foil relation with me: UML Secy Bhattarai
Jan 3, 2018-CPN-UML Secretary Yogesh Bhattarai has claimed that some of his party leaders have made attempts to misguide party Chairman KP Oli against him by creating unnecessary controversies.
Bhattarai said that false rumours were being spread on the issues he has never spoken. Speaking to media persons in the Capital on Wednesday, Bhattarai said, “Attempts are being made to trigger Oli with intention to foil his relation with me.” “Oli, however, understands all the conspiracies and we both are working together based on mutual trust.”
Leader Bhattarai went on to say that the some practitioners of Yellow Journalism are equally active in creating tussles among politicians.
Bhattarai claimed that he has nowhere stated that Madhav Nepal should be appointed as the party chairman and Ishwor Pokharel as the prime minister. “I am not the one who goes on assigning duties to the party leaders. Such decisions are taken as per the party charter and collective interest of leaders,” he said, “If I have some idea, I present them to central committee meeting of the party because that is my forum where I present party-related issues.”
Bhattarai also said that even in CPN (Maoist Centre), some leaders are trying to misguide their Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal. He said that all these unnecessary attempts are being taken to break the unity of communist forces. According to Bhattarai, anti-unification forces are playing active roles to foil the merger plan of two parties.
Likewise, leader Bhattarai also said that he has been openly praising the contribution of Oli and Dahal for helping bring this country in today’s situation. Bhattarai added that he put forth the ‘leadership handover’ proposal to the younger generation so that these leaders will be praised for ages.
“In this context, I had mentioned Nelson Mandela’s example saying that the world would bow before these senior leaders [Oli & Dahal] if they take the parenting role of the party and handover the leadership to younger generation,” said Bhattarai.
