Gorkha, July 1
Former prime minister Baburam Bhattarai has claimed that the merger between the then CPN-UML and the CPN-Maoist Centre to form the Nepal Communist Party resulted in a stalemate in the national politics.
Terming the merger ‘unfortunate’, the chairman of Samajwadi Party Nepal’s national council, Bhattarai says the two parties were heading towards opposite directions before their unification and their merger resulted in the immobility.
According to him, the UML was a regressive force but the Maoist Centre was progrssive.
Speaking with journalists in his home district of Gorkha on Monday, Bhattarai also expressed his dissatisfaction over the performance of NCP-led government. He was of the view that even some leaders of the ruling party were not happy with the government.
In another context, Bhattarai said the government should address concerns raised by Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’-led party through talks, politically.
