Disolution of YCL led to UCPN-M’s downfall, says Dahal

Kathmandu, January 24

Chairman of Unified CPN-Maoist Pushpa Kamal Dahal today said the party’s journey of defeat had begun with the decision to dissolve the party’s youth wing Young Communist League.

Addressing the concluding ceremony of the three-day long national gathering of YCL in the capital, Dahal said the party’s is once again on the path to victory with the revival of YCL.

He said the Nepali Congress has been following the fate of UCPN-M.

He said both the parties remained out of government despite being the largest party in the Parliament.

“We remained out of power earlier despite being the largest party in the first Constituent Assembly and NC has followed suit now,” he said.

YCL also unanimously elected 151-member central committee under the leadership of RC Sharma.

The committee comprises Laxmi Prasad Chaulagain, Yubaraj Dulal, Lila Sharma, Durga Adhikary, Nanda Ram Kadariya, Harendra Ram Ray Yadav and Shiva Kumar Fuyal as vice-chairpersons and Ram Prasad Sapkota as the general secretary.

Speaking at a separate organised at the party headquarters in Paris Danda, Dahal claimed that the agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front was happy with the first amendment of new constitution as they were consulted before endorsing the amendment.
