- POST REPORT, Kathmandu

May 8, 2014-

A UCPN (Maoist) leader close to former PM and senior party leader Baburam Bhattarai on Thursday said a new party will be formed on the foundation of a new ideology.

Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, who is projected as the second leader of the faction, said a new party will be set up under Bhattarai’s leadership. The statement comes two days after the faction denied to be on the party’s Central Committee alleging monopoly of Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal in decisions.

Speaking at Reporters’ Club, he said they were in talks with people outside the party on the matter. After the second CA polls, Bhattarai has been advocating the need for a new political force.

He said that the national convention had failed to provide a programme to reinvent the party. “A new political force is necessary for the country and we are working on it,” said Rayamajhi
