KATHMANDU — Three of the protesting Sanghiya Gathabandhan’s constituents announced Wednesday that they left Gathabandhan, expressing their dissatisfaction over the leadership.
Issuing a press statement here, Lok Dal, Bahujan Samaj Party-Nepal and Loktantrik Party-Nepal declared that they are now no more parts of the dissenting coalition.
Accusing Yadav and the UDMF of ignoring presence and agendas of other smaller parties and bargaining with the government based on their own 11-point demands, the three parties said they would independently carry out struggles putting forth 102 demands.
The Gathabandhan, currently led by Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav, was said to have 30 parties as constituents including members of the United Democratic Madhesi Front.
