Unity among Nepal Maoist opposing panels a distant affair

From Telegraph Nepal:



The Unified Maoists’ Party politburo member Hari Bhakta Kandel told media men that the possibility of unity between the panel respectively led by Senior Vice Chairman Mohan Baidya Kiran and Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal were almost negligible.

“In the manner the party leaders have been putting allegations and counter allegations on each other in the ongoing party central committee meeting, it is likely that the party will not remain as a single unit,” Kandel said and added, “Less than half a dozen Central Committee members are in favour of taking a mid-path to end the ongoing dispute.”

The Unified Maoists Party is holding its central committee meeting since December 24, 2011 and it is reported that some 80 members have already made their views at the ongoing meeting.

Kandel had made these remarks after the meeting on Sunday, January 1, 2011, ended for the day.

“We must admit that the party is heading in a wrong direction”, said politburo member Haribol Gajurel.


“Both Baidya and Dahal are resolute on their stance that dates back to the days of revolt,” Gajurel adds, “Our objective is to find a common point of understanding", Gajurel summed up.
