Kathmandu, February 21

Unified CPN Maoist leaders today said the party should correct itself to stop the flow of leaders and cadres to different parties.

While reporting about their activities at the party’s standing committee meeting along with the in-charges of seven Pradeshes today, leaders expressed concern about the flow of leaders to former senior leader Baburam Bhattarai-led Naya Shakti.

One of the leaders had informed the meeting that the party’s central committee member Dhruba Parajuly was writing a statement expressing his intention to desert UCPN-M and join Bhattarai’s new force.

During discussion, the leaders had expressed concern about the trend of leaders leaving the party and urged the leadership to correct the party to stop the outward flow.

Leaders reporting today criticised the activities of the ministers while Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, Deputy PM and Energy Minister defended the ministers of the party claiming that they have been doing their best despite some shortcomings. The reporting from leaders will continue tomorrow as well.

Standing Committee member Lokendra Bista Magar said the reports focused on strengthening the party’s organisations and activities of the ministers representing the party.

During today’s meeting Bista Magar had briefed about the activities of the Production Department, while Bishwo Bhakta Dulal discussed Schooling Department.
