KATHMANDU: Maoist Centre Secretary Devendra Paudel has claimed that a new alliance has been formed with the goal of making a ‘course correction’ in Nepal’s politics and taking it towards leftist convergence.

Talking to journalists in Baluwatar today, he said, “It is the desire of the Nepali people to see communist parties becoming united. This step has been taken to preempt the situation in which communists are weakened.”

According to him, the meeting discussed on moving ahead by correcting the past mistakes and weaknesses.

“That time is necessary sometimes to make a ‘break through’. If there is obstacle in the political journey, a new chapter starts. This is not a new topic. There was a little break in the past, it (the new alliance) is a continuation from the past itself,” he added.

The Maoist Centre Secretary said that the Socialist Front Nepal will also be continued with the formation of a new alliance together with the CPN-UML.

“The leading leaders of the rest of the parties in the Front are also communists. We will move ahead taking all the parties in the Front along,” leader Paudel said.
