On June 12, Bhattarai had announced establishment of the new party amidst thousands of cadres.

The party has been claiming that it would establish itself as an alternative political force within few years and work for prosperity and economic development of the nation.

The party has been claiming to have more than 100,000 members from across the nation.

On September 26 last year, Bhattarai had announced that he had severed ties with the then UCPN-Maoist, in which he was the second man for years, claiming old political forces could not transform the nation into a prosperous one.

On January 24, he had announced to establish a new political force and had formed the Naya Shakti Nepal Interim Central Council as its preparation.
