In the district of Ilam, addressing a training program organized for cadres representing the Unified Maoists’’ Party hardliner panel led by Mohan Baidya Kiran, leader Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ claimed that both Chairman Pushpa Kamal and party vice chairman and Prime Minister Baburam were opportunists.
Some fifty cadres representing the Baidya panel were present at the training program.
He however, termed both Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and Baburam as capable leaders.
Carrot and stick both.
“Both Prachanda and Baburam though are capable leaders yet have developed opportunistic character thus they cannot be trusted any more.”
“They submitted the revolutionary credentials of the Peoples’ Liberation Army just for meeting their political ends,” also claimed Biplav.
At yet another plane, Biplav also claimed that Chairman Prachanda was himself in favour of party split.
“It is true that fire and water cannot survive together”, Biplav hinted imminent split.
