Bhairahawa, March 30

Nepal Communist Party (Revolutionary-Maoist) General Secretary Mohan Baidhya today commented that ruling Nepal Communist Party was a communist party only in name.

Speaking at a press meet in Butwal, Baidhya argued that the ruling party had abandoned communist ideology, principle and policy. “The ruling party has defamed the whole communist movement and communists all over the world,” Baidhya charged. Baidhya advised NCP co-chairs KP Sharma Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal to change the name of their party. “I want them to change their party’s name as they have renounced communist ideology and doctrine”, he added.

In another context, Baidhya ruled out the possibility of his party’s unification with Netra Bikram Chand-led party. “Earlier, we tried to forge unity with Chand-led party. Unification is not possible now,” Baidhya stated.

Baidhya, however, said that the government had made a mistake by banning Netra Bikram Chand-led party. “Banning the Netra Bikram Chand-led party, jailing Resham Chaudhary and signing an agreement with CK Raut show that government is hell-bent on doing wrong things than right,” Baidhya stated.
