KATHMANDU, March 16: A key leader of the ruling CPN-UML Bamdev Gautam has accused the party’s Chairman KP Sharma Oli of trying to split the party. 

Gautam, while addressing a meeting organized by the Nepal Communist Party Unity Campaign in the capital on Tuesday, said that Oli’s behavior of late days does not favor party unity. 

He claimed that Oli opted to split the party through unilateral decisions including the amendment of the party statute by a section of central committee members close to him [Oli]. He was of the view that Oli failed to behave in such a way so that  party unity would remain intact although the Supreme Court revived the party through its order on March 7 earlier this year. 

“The revival of the party means that it has been reinstated to its status prior to May 16, 2018. It also means that the party’s erstwhile statute, central committee, politburo and standing committee formed by the central committee have also been reinstated. However, Oli acted differently,” Gautam said. 

He also suggested to Oli to self-criticize for the mistakes of the past and make others do the same to keep party unity intact. He also said Oli and CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal should come together and forge a fresh agreement.
