No possibility of reunion with Prachanda: Baidya

CPN (Revolutionary), Mohan Baidya

KATHMANDU, Sept 12: Chair of Communist Party of Nepal (CPN-Revolutionary Maoist), Mohan Baidya, has ruled out ever possibility of reunion with the CPN (Maoist Center).

At a press meet organized following the party’s State-level meeting here today, chair Baidya accused CPN (MC) leadership of already becoming opportunists, adding that unification with such force was never possible.

“Do you see whom Prachanda party is hobnobbing with these days?” His question was targeted at CPN (MC) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and party’s political closeness with other political parties.

Baidya, who was once considered an influential leader within the then UCPN (Maoist), now CPN (MC), decided to split away the party in 2012 to form the CPN (Revolutionary Maoist).

He went to argue that the 10-year armed conflict failed to serve the people’s mandate and his party would launch a fresh people’s revolt to bring significant changes in the society.

According to him, the party has a plan to hold its national general convention in Pokhara on coming October 7 which will determine the party’s future course of action. The party secretariat will decide whether to take part in the election.

Underlining the need of a new people’s revolution to ensure the transformation in the country, he insisted n the unity among all nationalists forces for so. RSS
