Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — Vice-chairman of Communist Party of Nepal Revolutionary (Maoist), CP Gajurel on Thursday ruled out the possibility of merger with the UCPN (Maoist) currently.

Speaking at the program in Capital, Gajurel said that the merger was unrealistic unless the UCPN (Maoist) left both the government and the parliament.

He claimed that the unification was unrealistic unless Chairman Baidya joined the camp.

Gajurel accused party’s Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa for conceding before the UCPN (Maoist) and said Thapa decided to unite himself after the party Chairman Mohan Baidya and leaders refused the unification.

“We want unification among true revolutionary communist forces. And, the unity with the UCPN (Maoist) is not possible as the party has turned more rightist,” he said.

Gajurel even accused the UCPN (Maoist) Chairman of endeavoring to split the party.
