Leftist alliance a network of corrupt and shameful parties: Gajurel

CP Gajurel, Vice-Chairperson of CPN (Revolutionary Maoist)

KATHMANDU, Oct 4: CP Gajurel, Vice-Chairperson of CPN (Revolutionary Maoist), has termed the unity process announcement among the leftist parties CPN-UML, CPN (Maoist Center) and Naya Shakti Party as a big mistake.

Speaking during an interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal on Wednesday, he said, “The leftist unity effort is a huge mistake. Their alliance and unity effort is rightist and reactionary move.”

In a dramatic turn of events, the three leftist parties, CPN-UML, CPN (Maoist Center) and Naya Shakti Party inking a six-point deal formally announced the electoral alliance and unity process on Tuesday. The party also formed a joint committee led by Oli and Dahal in order to coordinate the unification process.

“UML, Maoist Center and Naya Shakti are only trying to deceive people by saying that they would form alliance of the communist movement,” accused Gajurel adding, “It is not possible. United Communist Party is beyond realization.”

He, however, opined that the alliance among the three communist parties would bring a new u-turn into the Nepalese politics.

He accused UML of unmasking itself of being a true patriot. He added, “UML is showing its true color now. The party is a shame in the name of communist.”

He also blamed the Maoist Center of not being a true revolutionist party and appealed the true revolutionary forces and patriots to unite together. He further accused MC of surrendering to UML by bringing unity proposal.

He further said that Naya Shakti Coordinator Dr Baburam Bhattarai joining the communist alliance was meaningless since Bhattarai had already announced abandoning the path of communism years ago.

“The alliance among the leftist forces is irrelevant indeed,” said Gajurel.

“In fact, the alliance is a network of the corrupt parties. There is no single true communist in the alliance. The leftist alliance is not going to prove beneficial for the nation,” he added.

Stating that the unity effort between the two large leftist forces of the country has caused trouble to Nepali Congress, he added that the NC has started looking for panchas in this restlessness.
