Leftist youth wings for immediate merger

Kathmandu, December 19

CPN-Maoist Centre Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal has been urged to immediately take the unification process between the party and CPN-UML to a logical conclusion.

A joint delegation from both political parties’ youth wings — Youth Association of Nepal and Young Communist League — reached Dahal’s private residence in Lazimpat to congratulate him on the majority victory of the left alliance in the recent elections to the House of Representatives and Provincial Assemblies and urged him to give a meaning to such achievements.

The delegation insisted that the party unification issue should get a logical conclusion to prove the electoral victory meaningful.

The victory of the left alliance in the provincial and parliamentary elections was a reflection of the opinion that ‘unity is strength’, they said, calling upon Dahal to take the leadership to ensure political stability and bring economic progress to the country.

Stating that the Nepali people had endorsed the left alliance through the recent polls, they urged Dahal to commence ‘meaningful’ dialogues for unification, according to YCL chair Ram Prasad Sapkota.

In response, Dahal informed the delegation that efforts were in place to institutionalise the endorsement of the left alliance from the people’s level.

“People’s mandate that the left alliance got through the elections has already become the people’s property, and support and cooperation from every quarter is required to take the unification process to a logical end,” Dahal said.

He further pledged to leave no stone unturned to pay back the people for their valuable ballots by meeting their aspirations for peace, political stability and economic prosperity.

Underlining the vital role of youths to change the fate of the nation, he was hopeful of achievements capable of revamping Nepal within a couple of years.

YAN chair Rajib Pahadi requested Dahal to make initiative for meaningful unity between two political parties.

YCL is the youth wing of the Maoist Centre while YAN is the youth wing of the UML.

Likewise, intellectuals and professionals from different walks of life honoured Dahal today applauding him for his contributions to making the left alliance victorious in the elections.
