Two Maoist parties in unification Dialogue
Sep 22, 2014-
The UCPN (Maoist) on Monday urged the breakaway CPN-Maoist party to take concrete steps for party unification, while claiming that the two parties have convergent views regarding the same.
In a letter sent to top CPN-Maoist leadership, UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal said the seventh general convention of his party held in Biratnagar in February had passed “a historic resolution” for party unification. The letter mentions that both parties need to seriously put the past experiences into perspective.
Earlier, in its letter, CPN-Maoist had said that UCPN (M) should come out of the CA and “embrace the line of revolt”.
The UCPN (Maoist) party had suffered a split in 2012 after then party’s senior leader Mohan Baidya formed a breakaway CPN-Maoist following severe differences on consolidating the party’s line of peace and constitution.
The UCPN (Maoist) has agreed on almost all points forwarded by CPN-Maoist as a basis of party unification except on the issue related to peace and statute drafting. “We are ready for candid discussions for the party unification,” the letter reads.
The two Maoist parties are already in working alliance on the issues related to peace process and local election.
