KATHMANDU: CPN-UML leader Ram Kumari Jhakri has said that UML unity will materialize only after party Chair KP Sharma Oli quits the party leadership.
Speaking at a mass gathering of the AKHIL Force on Saturday, Leader Jhakri said there could not be unity unless those responsible for the present status of national politics remained in the fore. “There will be unity in the UML only when those who led politics to this present situation are out of the mainstream,” she said.
She wondered how unity was possible without the regressive forces’ realizing their faults. “Does unity only mean to stand together shoulder to shoulder?”
Stating that she was not against party unity, Jhakri demanded answers as to who ruined the communist movement. She added it should be differentiated whether dissolving the House of Representatives (HoR) was regressive move of the party leadership or people’s mandate. “How is unity possible when one faction says HoR dissolution is regression and the other says it was people’s mandate?”
She concluded that the 10-point deal signed by the rival UML factions could not provide insight as to HoR dissolutions were regressive moves or truly people’s mandate.
