Republica: Party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has presented a political document at the CC meeting. What do you have to say about it?

CP Gajurel: The document has proved that our leadership is swiftly heading toward ‘rightist and opportunistic” political line. The document has justified the mistakes committed by political leadership. So, the document has adopted the path of surrender.  We do not accept it. Party Senior Vice-chairman Kiran (Mohan Baidya) will present another document from our side.This means, the document would not be helpful for party unity?

CP Gajurel: Yes. How will the party unite when the genuine concerns that have already been registered by party leaders and cadres are not addressed.  So, the document would not be in anyway helpful for party unity.

What do you think would be crucial to party unity?

CP Gajurel: First of all, the document has to clearly address the mandate of the Palungtar plenum. But Dahal’s document has neglected the mandate. He has claimed in his document that the four-point deal, the seven-point deal, army integration, BIPPA, return of seized properties, were the decisions taken by the party. But these decisions have been taken by Dahal and PM Bhattarai and not the party.
