The following comes from ekantipur.com
UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal claimed on Monday that his party would not split as it is obvious to have minor differences inside a big party.
Speaking at a programme organised to welcome new entrants to the Maoists at the party headquarters in Parishdanda today, the Maoist chairman said that some minor differences within the party is giving the impression that the party is splitting, but that’s not going to happen.
“Minor differences are obvious in a big party,” said Dahal. “But the UCPN (Maoist) won’t split, rather, the party will become more united and ultimately the reins of nation will come in our hands.”
At a time when speculations are rife that the Maoists party is on the verge of split following ‘SMS rumor’ that ‘Vice Chairman Baburam Bhattarai is splitting the party’, Chairman Dahal dismissed it as just another rumor within a dynamic party.
He went on to say that his party has been striving to conclude the peace and constitution-drafting processes but some people are trying to foil it.
The Maoist chairman remarked any particular organised group is involved in carrying out bombings inside moving vehicles and prison in Tarai districts.
At the function, around a dozen people including Nepali Cinema director Daya Ram Dahal formally joined the Maoist party.
