KATHMANDU: Unified CPN-Maoist on Saturday expressed astonishment to at abrupt resignation of its leader Baburam Bhattarai and said he would rethink his decision. “Tendering resignation abruptly when the party is scheduled to hold its Central Committee meeting to discuss the contemporary issues is abnormal, especially when the meeting was called with his consent. We hope, he will rethink his decision,” said party Spokesperson Dinanath Sharma in a statement. He said consultations between party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and him were being held in a cordial environment and there were possibilities of addressing his concerns through discussions. He quit the party when the country was in an adverse situation after promulgation of the new constitution as there was need of unity among people. Meanwhile, Madhesi Rastriya Mukti Morcha Nepal (Revolutionary) welcomed Bhattarai’s decision and said in a statement it was a happy coincidence as the resignation had come when the Madhesi people were struggling for their rights.
