KATHMANDU, Dec 28: A meeting of the second-rung leaders of CPN (Maoist Center) has decided to push for making Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ as the Chief of the new united party.

The Maoist leaders have also decided to exert pressure to both UML and Maoist Center to conclude the unity process while playing responsible roles as unification was promised to people before election.
