JANAKPUR, OCT 30 – UCPN (Maoist) Chiarman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Sunday said the four-point agreement between his party and the Samyukta Loktantrik Madhesi Morcha started a new chapter of unity between the Hills and the Madhes.
Dahal was addressing a function organised by the UCPN (Maoist) Mithila Madhes State Committee in Janakpur on Sunday.
Noting that it is his moral responsibility to see through the peace and constitution writing processes after the death of NC leader Girija Prasad Koirala, Dahal said he was hopeful that he would succeed in the task.
Maoist Vice Chairman and Minister of Foreign Affairs Narayankaji Shrestha was also present at the function. Senior leaders Mohan Baidya and Ram Bahadur Thapa were not present despite the publicised attendance of the two hard line leaders. Leaders and activists from the Baidya faction also sat out the programme.
