Nepal Maoists hardliner Baidya rejects Chairman Dahal CC meet offer
Telegraph Nepal, March 23, 2012
Senior Vice Chairman Mohan Baidya ‘Kiran’ of Unified Maoists’ Party has out rightly rejected Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal’s request to call for a central committee meeting.
Baidya and Dahal met at the latter’s “talked to be” newly bought posh bungalow in Lazimpat, March 21, 2012.
“If you unilaterally call the meeting our panel will defy it”, Baidya told Dahal point blank.
“It has been already two months since last central committee meeting was held”, Baidya is quoted as saying by the media adding, “Do you remember the promises you had made during the last meeting.”
Baidya later told the media, “The Chairman proposed for another round of central committee meeting to resolve our disputes. I rejected his offer. I instead asked him to fulfill his past commitments.”
Hitting nail right on the head.
When asked if his panel will join the CC meeting after PM Baburam resigns, replied Baidya, “His resignation is not primary. Inherent issues of constitution, issues related to daily lives of common men and issues that are related to strengthening nationalism are of high import for us. We want to resolve them all at once.”
Similarly, C.P. Gajurel of Badiya Panel tells Kantipur daily, “We told him that there is no urgency of having another round of CC meeting until he fulfills his previous commitments.”
Gajurel continued, “Dissolution of Baburam Bhattarai government, PLA to lead the Unified Command after integration, honorific integration process, scrapping of all unequal treaties with India were some of our demands that he had agreed upon”.
“Maoist hardliners discuss possibility of alliance with fringe left parties”
Nepal News, Thursday, 22 March 2012
Leaders of the hardliner Mohan Baidya faction of the UCPN (Maoist) Monday held a joint meeting with fringe communist parties as part of their preparations to launch street protests to press their demands including a “people’s constitution” and resignation of the Bhattarai government.
Leaders of 11 fringe left parties including the CPN (Maoist) headed by Matrika Yadav, Revolutionary Communist Party and Janamukti Party were present in the meeting held in Lalitpur. They agreed in principle to spearhead a joint protest movement but the timing and the programmes are yet to be decided.
The Maoist hardliners reached out to the fringe left parties after turning down the party establishment’s decision to hold the central committee meeting to resolve the internal dispute.
According to sources, Baidya told party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal during a meeting on Wednesday that his group would not participate in the CC meeting until Baburam Bhattarai agreed to step down. nepalnews.com
