The unification process in the ruling CPN is unlikely to complete tomorrow as promised by its leaders earlier.
It has already been a year since the then CPN-UML and the Maoist-Centre announced their unification a year ago. But the unification process is yet to complete. Although the party picked the district chairs and secretaries a few weeks back after a hectic exercise, the district committees are yet to get a full shape. Similarly, the local committees as well as the sister organisations are still waiting for their unification.
And groupism is blamed for the delay in the unification process. Groupism has affected the former UML camp as it has more than two groups—one led by Prime Minister KP Oli and another by Madhav Kumar Nepal. Bam Dev Gautam has also another group in the faction. Similarly, in the former Maoist Centre, there are two groups—one led by Pushpa Kamal Dahal and another by Narayankaji Shrestha. However, Shrestha’s is very weak group.
When the division in the party has been noticed following the formation of its State level committees and district committees. Formation of the local committees and sister organsiations is likely to widen the division as more cadres are adjusted in the local committees and sister organisations.
