YCL Cadres Torch UCPN-M Office


Dhading, samanupatikma sabhasad banauna maang gardai UCPN-M parti karyalayama aagjani. The cadres of UCPN-M's youth wing YCL have torched the party office on December 31 after being disappointed at the party's list of CA members selected for under PR seats. They were angry that the party leadership had taken the decision unilaterally selecting the persons who were not even active party members from the district. The district level leaders and activists burnt important documents they seized from the office, vandalized office equipment, furniture and sign board and set them on fire while chanting slogans against the party leadership. The Maoist activists took such a step to express their resentment after Maoist district leader Ram Bahadur Bhandari, who they call as living martyr, didn’t appear in the final list of candidates under the PR electoral system submitted to the Election Commission (EC) on December 30. They also expressed their resentment over the selection of former IGP Rabindra Pratap Shah’s inclusion in the final list who they pointed out was serving in security force during the conflict period. Following the incident, YCL Dhanding constituency no. 2 chairperson Rajesh Adhikari and secretary Amrit Tamang issued a statement demanding one seat to be given to the martyrs' families, District Convention and release of detained YCL cadres.
