Kathmandu, April 5

CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal says his party will be unified with the CPN-UML on April 22 on the occasion of the establishment day of Communist Party of Nepal.

Speaking at a gathering of his party cadres from Rauthat district at his residence in Khumaltar of Lalitpur today, Dahal said the merger would give a message of peace, prosperity and unity.

“Now, we will prepare internally and once the Prime Minister (UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli) will return from India, we will announce the unification on April 22. This is our mutual understanding.”

Dahal maintained that the two parties are yet to iron out differences regarding the poll symbol and ratio of two parties in the new party’s organisation. He, however, hoped that both the issues would be settled soon.
