Gorkha Bazaar, Sept 8: The UCPN (Maoist) faction led by party leader Dr Baburam Bhattarai in Gorkha district has set up a separate office. The Bhattarai faction of the party is running a separate office at local Haramtari claiming themselves the official party office-holders.
They have suspected that the faction within the party’s district committee close to party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal have tried to sideline them and hence the need to establish a separate party office. The Bhattarai faction has brought their office into operation from Monday.
Although the factions led by Bhattarai and by party chairman Dahal have agreed to resolve the ideological differences between them, the differences run very deep in Gorkha district. What they will do will be matter of concern to the general public.
