ITAHARI: Irate Kochila and Limbuwan State Committee leaders of the Unified CPN-Maoist have warned of severing ties with the centre if the party leadership did not put right its decision of including junior party members into the national convention organising committee.
A participant at a hush-hush meeting held at Itahari-based hotel, on Friday, urged the party leadership to correct its mistake, or include the left out party members into the convention organising committee or not to violate mandate given by the seventh plenum.
“We have decided to sever our ties with the centre if the party leadership does not rectify its decision,” a disgruntled participant said. “We shall not put up with party injustice. Instead, we shall go ahead through internal struggle,” he warned.
Majority of the district in-charges and acting in-charges of the Kochila and Limbuwan State Committee participating the secret meeting flayed the party leadership for increasing the members of national convention organising committee violating seventh plenum’s mandate.
UCPN-Maoist’s seventh plenum held in Kathmandu had decided to form 175-memebr national convention organising committee. “The party leadership unilaterally increased the number of convention organising committee to 251-member which is deplorable,” one of the participants said.
A participant preferring anonymity said that it was erroneous to increase the members of convention organising committee giving shelter to factionalism and groupism in the party. He urged the party leadership to rectify their modus operandi.
Another disgruntled leader complained that party leadership had failed to make the correct assessment of the work performance of party members. “Juniors have been included in the convention organising committee, whereas seniors have been sidelined,” said another dissatisfied leader.
Disgruntled leaders of Kochila and Limbuwan state committee have requested the party leadership not to make any arbitrary decision breaching the established party norms. The meeting also decided to submit their points of discontent to the centre with signatures.
UCPN-Maoist has included Dharmashila Chapagain and Purna Singh Chapagain of Kochila State Committee and Shree Jawegu of Limbuwan State Committee into national convention organising committee.
Dambar Subedi, who is ranked second after Dharmashila in Kochila is not incorporated into the convention organising committee. It has been learnt that Subedi had led the secret meeting.
