Da­hal be­lieves Left al­liance is a great rev­o­lu­tion

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

Ad­dress­ing party lead­ers and work­ers on Fri­day, Maoist Cen­ter chair­man Push­paka­mal Da­hal said that the Left al­liance fol­lowed by uni­fi­ca­tion of the Left par­ties is a his­tor­i­cal achieve­ment and a great rev­o­lu­tion. Da­hal said that mak­ing only one com­mu­nist party in the coumtry was his idea and ul­ti­mately UML be­came ready for uni­fi­ca­tion by adopt­ing his idea. Da­hal fur­ther said that he has taken a big risk in tak­ing such a his­tor­i­cal de­ci­sion. How it be­came pos­si­ble: As we know, UML leader Bamdev Gau­tam was play­ing the role of a bridge in be­tween UML and Maoist Cen­ter. In the re­cent past Gau­tam had pro­posed for de­vel­op­ing elec­tion al­liance in the up­com­ing elec­tions. In re­sponse to Gau­tam's pro­posal, Da­hal said why only elec­tion al­liance, why not uni­fi­ca­tion among the Left par­ties? Since then, some top lead­ers close to Da­hal and Oli in their re­spec­tive par­ties started to work on the modal­ity of uni­fi­ca­tion and, fi­nally, dur­ing the Da­sain hol­i­days, KP Sharma Oli and Da­hal held oneon-one meet at Oli's res­i­dence in Balkot. The meet­ing de­vel­oped a 7-point pro­posal, how­ever, in a later meet­ing, one point was tech­ni­cally re­moved. Da­hal had even be­come ready to con­test elec­tions with the UML's elec­tion sym­bol "Sun". Big sur­prise to Delhi: Even one day be­fore the an­nounce­ment of the al­liance among the Left par­ties, nei­ther Delhi nor the NC lead­ers could smell any­thing about a dras­tic po­lit­i­cal de­vel­op­ment. As per the sched­ule, by or­ga­niz­ing procla­ma­tion of an assem­bly, the lead­ers of the aligned par­ties an­nounced a six-point agree­ment for uni­fi­ca­tion. For the time be­ing, the UML, Maoist Cen­ter and Naya Shakti par­ties have re­mained in the Left al­liance. Delhi, although it doesn't trust Da­hal fully, was not of the view that Da­hal would de­velop al­liance with UML, a party strongly dis­liked by Delhi. Delhi's plan was to con­tinue the present NCMaoist al­liance and keep aloof UML from power at least for one decade and fin­ish the party. From the move of the Maoist Cen­ter, Delhi has be­come se­ri­ously hurt.
