In its unification process that has been still incomplete a year after the announcement of unification between the then CPN-UML and the Maoist-Centre, the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has given responsibility to some 3500 leaders and cadres in different committees
Last week, it gave a final touch to its longstanding efforts to unify its various sister organisations exactly a year after the unification of then CPN-UML and CPN (Maoist Centre). Earlier, it had formed state and district committees amidst disputes.
The name-list of the leadership of the unified sister organisations was made public amid a programme held on Sunday at NCP’s former party office in Balkhu on the occasion of the memorial day of people’s leader, the late Madan Bhandari and Jibraj Ashrit. NCP general secretary Bishnu Paudel made public the name-list acting on the decision of party secretariat meeting.

Ain Mahar will lead All Nepal National Free Students’ Union, while Ranjit Tamang is deputy coordinator. Ram Prasad Sapkota ‘Deepsikha’ has been chosen as coordinator of Youth Association Nepal, and Ramesh Poudel as deputy coordinator.
