Chitwan, April 24

CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal today said unification of the CPN-UML and his party had been delayed as chairmen of both parties could not give adequate time to the unification negotiation.

Speaking at a press meet organised by Press Centre in Bharatpur airport, Dahal held that if the chairmen of the two parties sat for negotiations taking enough time, the unity between the two parties would come to logical conclusion.

Dahal said efforts were under way to announce party unification either on May 1 or May 5. Stating that there was no complication with regard to party unification, Dahal argued that they wanted to make party unification better and effective even though it could take a few more days. “We do not want to merge in haste and regret later. We want to take time and make our unification the best,” he added.

Dahal said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming visit would help strengthen bilateral ties. “Modi’s visit to Janakpur and Muktinath is overdue. He will hold discussion on different issues”, he added. Dahal stated that relations between Nepal and India was improving.
