Maoist central committee discusses govt formation Maoist leaders are busy in internal discussion on how to win the confidence of the parties for a Maoist-led government.

The meeting of the party’s central committee (CC), which began today, discussed a proposal presented by party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’. Dahal’s proposal says the party should take the leadership of the next government by bringing all the parties in the Constituent Assembly into confidence.

The CC meeting will resume tomorrow as a number of central members including some senior leaders are yet to comment on Dahal’s proposal. Maoist leader Barshaman Pun ‘Ananta’ said the meeting is focused on devising the agendas for garnering broad political support for the next government. A meeting of the central secretariat, the apex body of the party, which was held after the party chairman’s meeting with the President on Wednesday, had decided to take initiatives for a unity government.

Maoist activists call for review of party’s failings

The Maoist district leaders of Rolpa have advised the party leadership to conduct a thorough review of the presidential election and the party’s ongoing efforts to form a new government.

They have also said that the party should start a serious discussion on its failure to build a working unity with other leftist forces of the country. Likewise, they were also of the opinion that there should be discussion among the party activists on whether the party should form the government or not in the present scenario, while warning against the meaninglessness of forming the government against the spirit of the people’s insurgency.

“If the wishes and aspiration of the people can’t be fulfilled then going to the government has no meaning,” Maoist district leader Rishiram Rokka told Kantipur Daily, adding, “there needs to be thorough discussion on whether the party should take initiative to form the government or not.”

Most Maoist activists from the district had died during the decade long people’s insurgency.
