KATHMANDU, August 25: Senior leader of CPN (Unified Socialist) Jhalanath Khanal said that the era of people’s multi-party democracy has come to an end.
Speaking at a virtual meeting with party members, former CPN-UML Chairman Khanal said that he will be returning to Kathmandu on Monday. Khanal also said that he has informed the Election Commission (EC) about his decision to join the CPN ( Unified Socialist).
While terming the CPN-UML split a ‘revolutionary rebellion’, Khanal said that some of the Standing Committee members from their faction have shifted their allegiance toward Oli for their vested interests. “Comrades, the era of multi-party democracy has come to an end. Nobody can follow up on that. Our program is to transform into socialism,” he said. “We have to speak according to the era we live in and make programs suitable to it.”
Referring to the decision of a section of leaders close to them to stay with Oli despite so much bitterness in the past, former Chairman Khanal also claimed that the middle path will not last for long.
