Kathmandu, 8 October, 2017 : CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has revealed that he was the one from the party to float the proposal of unity with the CPN (UML).
Addressing political orientation for the party's politburo, Chairman Dahal further informed that Vice-Chairman of the UML Bam Dev Gautam brought forth the unity proposal and the parties reached the conclusion that they could be unified after forging electoral alliance.
"We were aware that the socialist revolution could not be materialized with slow pace. UML was also for taking the leftist movement in a new way, thereby resulting in the formation of unity committee," he shared before the party politburo members.
He also reminded that that several round of talks were held with the UML leaders Madhav Kumar Nepal and Jhalanath Khanal for the unity between the Maoist and the UML.
Chairman Dahal further argued that only leftist polarization could help people achievement their feat. Current efforts for the unity, though doubted from various angles, would result in the welfare of Nepal and the Nepalis, he underscored.
Recalling that the party had received proposal from the CPN (UML) for an electoral alliance since from the local-level election, he said the proposal could not be materalised as both parties failed to find a consensus on the matter of sharing equal seats in four metropolises.
According to leader Dahal, the communist parties of Nepal have geared up for the unification with the dedication to go for the revolution for socialism. The leftist electoral alliance and efforts of party unification are not meant for finishing anyone, instead it is for reaching to a new height along with unity in ideologies for common goals and for the betterment of the nation and people. "Three political parties have their own assumptions, beliefs and perceptions. Unity is not possible by standing on them. We ourselves in the process of transformation and a new message can be send to the world only by transforming the communist movement and the entire nation," Dahal said during orientation. Also speaking on the occasion, Maoist Center leader Narayan Kaji Shrestha said the alliance among the communist parties capable of serving the interest of the nation.
