Big 3 to talk to CPN-Maoist today

REPUBLICA
KATHMANDU, Sept 1: Leaders from major political parties have decided to talk to the Mohan Baidya-led CPN-Maoist on Tuesday with a view to include their views in the new constitution.

The decision was taken at a meeting among the leaders held at the chamber of Baburam Bhattarai, who heads the Constitutional Political Dialogue and Consensus Committee (CPDCC) of the Constituent Assembly (CA) at Singha Durbar on Monday. UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, CPN-UML´s senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, Nepali Congress (NC) General Secretary Krishna Sitaula and UML´s Bishnu Paudel, among other leaders, were present at the meeting.

  How long will Thabang remain 'Communist'?  
  BY HIRA BAHADUR GHARTIMAGAR  
 
Communist Ideology was introduced in Thabang, later the Maoists’ place of origin, in 2012 BS (1955 AD). Since then, Thabang has always been for one or the other communist party. While Thabang’s consistent support for the left is viewed as historic, questions are emerging as to how long its loyalty for the Communists would remain intact in the competitive multiparty society.

Mohan Bikram Singh of CPN–Mashal attributes Thabang people’s support for the communists to their deep faith in the ideology. “Why these people have remained supporters of communists for so long is because of their faith in communism. Here it has become a sort of tradition for one to be for communists actually,” he said.
