KATHMANDU: The extended Central Committee (CC) meeting of the UCPN-Maoist which is scheduled for June 29- July 1 may see postponement, privy sources to Maoists confirmed on Wednesday.
The Standing Committee meeting, due to take place at the residence of Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal in Lazimpat will take the formal decision over it.
Maoists had earlier planned extended CC to fix the intra party rifts and how to move ahead in the changed political context.
But now dissenting Maoists led by Mohan Baidhya have formed a new party, Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist, blaming UCPN-Maoist Chairman Dahal of deviating from Maoist ideology, politics and principles.
Dahal faction is expected to postpone the extended CC citing lack of preparations.
