CPN-Maoist Centre Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’meeting Lazimpat

CPN-Maoist Centre Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has conceded he made a mistake by going it alone instead of taking the party rank and file into confidence while deciding to replace the KP Sharma Oli-led ruling coalition. Prachanda’s self-criticism comes amid criticism from Maoist leaders, including Narayan Kaji Shrestha, Top Bahadur Rayamajhi and Shakti Basnet. The Maoist supremo ate the humble pie at the party headquarters’ meeting on Sunday, effectively putting a debate to rest. At the meeting held at his Lazimpat residence, Prachanda pledged to move ahead by making institutional decisions.

Leaders, including Shrestha, Rayamajhi and Basnet, had criticised Prachanda for taking a decision on replacing the Oli government without discussing the matter in the party. Party leaders were not on the same page over leaving the Oli government. But leaders claimed after Sunday’s meeting that they have reached an understanding on continuing discussions on the party’s decision and implementing the same unitedly. Maoist leader Agni Sapkota told Onlinekhabar: Prachanda, Narayan Kaji and Badalji (Ram Bahadur Thapa) have reached an understanding. They have agreed to move ahead by making institutional decisions. At the meeting, Prachanda had briefed the participants about latest political developments, according to Sapkota. Maoist Chair Prachanda also informed the meeting about his discussions with experts on constitution, on Saturday.
