Janakpurdham, June 23
The Samajwadi Party Nepal and the Rastriya Janata Party Nepal have once again launched their efforts to marge the parties.
The RJPN was in unity conversation with the Upendra Yadav-led Federal Socialist Forum Nepal till a few months ago. However, the talks had discontinued after the Forum merged with Baburam Bhattarai-led Naya Shakti Party Nepal to form the Samajwadi Party around one and half months ago.
But, two parties are in the conversation again, according to leaders.
Recently, Samajwadi Party’s Yadav and RJPN leader Rajendra Mahato held a meeting in Janakpurdham over the issue. Bhattarai had also met some RJPN leaders in Kathmandu a few days ago.
Acknowledging the recent meetings, Mahato says, “The sooner the issues are finalised, the sooner the unification will be announced.”
An RJPN source claims the two parties may merge by November this year. If it happens, the joint party will launch a movement demanding the constitution amendment.
