Maoists Form Parallel unit in Parsa
Jul 26, 2014-
The factional warring within the main opposition, UCPN (Maoist), has descended to the district level. Barely a week after the party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s supporters expanded the district working committee, a group associated with senior leader Baburam Bhattarai organised a news conference in Parsa district on Saturday to announce another expansion of the district committee.
Baliram Sah is the chairman of the new 51-member committee while Hari Prasad Mandal has been appointed the deputy chairman of the committee.
According to Baliram, a meeting of the district working committee that was organised in Birgunj on Friday and Saturday had reset the committee.
Bijaya Mahato leads the Dahal factional committee. Baliram claims that the Maoist headquarters recognises his committee.
