Oli-Da­hal re­la­tions

People's Review - - FRONT PAGE - By Our Re­porter

The other day, Prime Min­is­ter and CPN chair­man KP Sharma Oli said that dif­fer­ent sec­tions are ac­tive in cre­at­ing dis­putes be­tween the two chair­men in the party, how­ever, Oli ex­pressed the com­mit­ment that he will make suc­cess­ful the uni­fi­ca­tion process. Ob­vi­ously, re­la­tions be­tween Oli and Da­hal are based on con­spir­acy and sus­pi­cion. Oli is not happy from Da­hal's in­ter­view printed in The Times of In­dia when he was in Delhi. Da­hal had dis­closed the se­cret agree­ment be­tween Oli and Da­hal be­fore the uni­fi­ca­tion process of the party. Da­hal dis­closed to the In­dian me­dia that there was an agree­ment be­tween him and Oli for shar­ing power in the party as well as in the gov­ern­ment. Ac­cord­ingly, Da­hal, on the eve of his so­journ to Delhi, had in­formed to the me­dia close to him that very soon the cabi­net will be reshuf­fled. Im­me­di­ately af­ter Da­hal's state­ment, Oli re­futed this state­ment of Da­hal. At that time, Da­hal was in Delhi. Da­hal, upon his re­turn from Delhi, cor­rected his in­for­ma­tion say­ing that Oli is au­then­tic leader to say what was the fact and his state­ment was also au­then­tic. Oli is sus­pi­cious of Da­hal's three-our-long one-on-one meet­ing with In­dian na­tional se­cu­rity ad­vi­sor Ajit Do­val be­fore his meet­ing with In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi. Sim­i­larly, Da­hal is sus­pi­cious with Oli that whether the lat­ter will hand over the PM's po­si­tion to him af­ter com­ple­tion of two and half years. Like­wise, Da­hal is sus­pi­cious from the ac­tiv­i­ties of for­mer UML lead­ers in the party. It is al­most sure that Da­hal will not be­come un­op­posed party chair­man as per the agree­ment be­tween Oli and Da­hal. How­ever, Da­hal be­lieves that on the ba­sis of the se­cret deal be­tween Oli and him, Oli has to sup­port him in the party elec­tion for the post of the party chair­man. Da­hal has also un­der­stood that Oli's sup­port alone is not enough to se­cure vic­tory in the party. There­fore, Da­hal has de­vel­oped re­la­tions with Bamdev Gau­tam. To please

Gau­tam, Da­hal said that the fed­eral par­lia­ment looks in­com­plete from the ab­sence of Gau­tam. Cur­rently, Da­hal has asked the party gen­eral sec­re­tary Bishnu Poudel to cre­ate one seat va­cant in the par­lia­ment, so that, Gau­tam could con­test a by­elec­tion and be elected. Ac­cord­ing to the party sources, Da­hal had rec­om­mended Bishnu Poudel's name to the post of the party gen­eral sec­re­tary by by­pass­ing elected gen­eral sec­re­tary Ish­war Pokhrel. Poudel's role is to clear ob­sta­cles for Da­hal dur­ing the party elec­tion. Who will be­come strong in the party, that will be de­cided af­ter the com­ple­tion of uni­fi­ca­tion process of the lower or­gans of the party. It is be­cause, the lower or­gans of the party will elect the na­tional con­ven­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tives who will have the right to vote for the top party lead­ers. Se­nior leader Mad­hav Nepal has al­ready warned the party lead­er­ship for not in­dulging in any par­tial­ity in the uni­fi­ca­tion process of the lower or­gans. Last week's party sec­re­tar­iat meet­ing was un­able to de­cide on the uni­fi­ca­tion of the lower or­ga­ni­za­tions. There­fore, the sec­re­tar­iat has given the re­spon­si­bil­ity to the chair­man­duo to ac­com­plish this job, it is un­clear what will hap­pen.
