Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — The UCPN-Maoist has decided to unite with different Maoist parties, including the CPN-Revolutionary Maoist (CPN-RM), which split far from it before.

The UCPN-Maoist took the decision on the basis of ongoing discussions between the two parties regarding unity.

A Standing Committee meeting of the party held at the residence of party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal at Lazimpat took the choice in this regard today.

UCPN-Maoist General Secretary Krishna Bahadur Mahara said that the party’s central committee meeting has been called for May 14 to take the decision regarding political, ideological and organisational issues for the unification with the CPN-RM.

It has been learned that a group close to General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa of the CPN-RM is keen to unite with the UCPN-Maoist immediately while the group close to Chairman Mohan Baidya has not reached to any conclusion yet.

There are different parties under the leadership of Baidya, Netra Bikram Chand, Mani Thapa and Matrika Yadav who had severed ties with the UCPN-Maoist.

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — The government has fixed 18 ministries, including the Office of Prime Minister and Council of Ministers (OPMCM) from the current 30, at the central level, under the new federal setup.

A cabinet meeting held at the Prime Minister’s official residence at Baluwatar on Friday fixed the number of ministries including the OPMCM at 18.

The Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli decided to limit the Cabinet to 18 ministries, including the Prime Minister’s Office, according to Environment Minister Lal Babu Pandit.

“Now the number of ministries will be 18, with the OPMCM included,” Minister Pandit told reporters following the cabinet meeting.

The cabinet decision comes two days after leaders of the left alliance–CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Center)–agreed to bring down the number of ministries to 18 at the federal level.

Likewise, the Cabinet meeting has also appointed CPN-UML politburo member Bishnu Rimal as Chief Political Advisor to PM. Earlier, Rimal had served as the chief political advisor during Oli’s previous premiership.
