KATHMANDU: The Nepal Communist Party (NCP) led by Netra Bikram Chand (Biplav) has split.
The NCP split after politburo member Krishna Prasad Dhamla (Gambhir) revolted to form a new party called Jana Samajwadi Manch, Nepal.
Issuing a statement on Saturday, coinciding with May Day, Dhamala said a new party has been formed to accomplish the ‘unfulfilled revolution’.
The NCP, which had reached a three-point agreement with the incumbent government, had been facing contradictions and intra-party disputes for a long time.
Dhamala said the revolution has betrayed the Nepali people in the name of revolution, stressing the need to create a whirlwind of fierce struggles against feudal, imperialist and fundamentalist tendencies.
“We are the witnesses of the history where the movement took the leadership to new heights but in the end it was the leadership that betrayed the people and the revolution,” said Dhamala in the statement.
It has been mentioned that the party-line of the new party is scientific socialism.
Meanwhile, Dhamala said that he could not hold a formal program due to the difficult situation created by the second wave of coronavirus in the country.
The newly formed party has called on one and all to join hands to fight the global coronavirus pandemic.
