KATHMANDU, Dec 30: CPN (Maoist Center) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that intensive efforts are on for the unification between the CPN (Maoist Center) and the CPN-UML before the new government is formed.
The Maoist Centre chairman said this while speaking at a felicitation programme organized by the UML Sindhuli-Kathmandu liaison forum and the Maoist Center Sindhuli valley federal people's relations forum here on Saturday. The programme was organized to honor the newly-elected lawmakers from the two parties.
On the occasion, Chairman Dahal said that nobody could backtrack from the party unification process, referring to the discussions between him and the UML chair Oli on Friday on the topic of party unification.
"It seems it might take some more days to form a new government and we have tried to finalize the party unification process before that," he said.
He described the overwhelming public support that the leftist alliance got through the elections was not only an opportunity but also a challenge, saying people have high expectations from the alliance. "We would not have space for a political career if we indulged in creating instability, corruption and squabbling even in the present," he said.
UML secretary Yogesh Bhattarai stressed on materializing the public trust in the leftist alliance by implementing development programmes.
Newly-elected lawmakers from Sindhuli district, Haribol Gajurel, Ganesh Pahadi among other lawmakers vowed to work for the development of the Sindhuli district. RSS
