Kathmandu, February 26

Chairman of CPN-Revolutionary Maoist Mohan Baidhya today said they had not held enough discussions for party unification with the Unified CPN-Maoist.

Addressing the training programme of Newa State of his party in the capital, Baidhya said party unification was not that easy.

Unified CPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has been saying at public functions that his party was preparing to unite with Baidhya-led party within weeks.

Saying Dahal was employing ‘tactics for cheap publicity’, Baidhya urged him not to make any public statement without thorough discussions on major contradictory issues between the two parties.

“We are not going for party unification just to elevate someone to the post of prime minister. We will take any such move only for the success of socialist revolution,” Baidhya said, adding that he was also for unification but he would go for it only after ensuring uniformity in ideology and action plan.

Baidhya further claimed that the Unified CPN-Maoist had not yet discussed ways to resolve differences between the two parties. “It is not easy for the party that burned the new constitution to unite with the one praising it as being the world’s best document,” he said.

Baidhya claimed that the major issues of marginalised communities, including Dalits and Janajatis, had not been addressed in the new constitution. He also accused the government for failing to address the problems facing the country.
