Kathmandu, Dec 26: The first national gathering of the Mohan Baidhya-led CPN-Maoist has kicked off in the capital city on Friday.
The national gathering is expected to chart out the party action plans after the split of a team led by Netra Bikram Chand in the party.
At the gathering, Chairman Mohan Baidhya has tabled a 26-page political document on contemporary political development.
Addressing the cadres, Baidhya urged the party cadres and leaders not to be disheartened by the party split.
“Chand’s exit splitting the party is to destabilize the revolution not to complete it,” Baidhya criticized.
Baidhya was of the view that Chand has exhibited himself as a power-hungry figure by proposing for power sharing in the name of talks prior to agitation.
On a separate context, Chairman Baidhya said that the party would take to the street from January 9 to pile pressure on parties for constitution writing from an all-party conference.
Some 800 representatives and observers are participating in the gathering that would conclude on December 29.
