Kathmandu: Prime Minister and CPN Chairman KP Sharma Oli has said the party unity would be accomplished in a flawless manner. The unity process will frustrate the contradiction and obstruction, he argued.
During a programme organized in memory of leader Post Bahadur Bogati at party headquarters today, PM Oli said party unity must be accomplished anyhow to materialize the dream of leaders like Bogati. “Martyrs’ dream is not fulfilled by arrogance and trivial talk, but the party unity taking country towards prosperity,” the PM underscored.
He warned that machinations were on against party unity by fomenting difference and infiltration. So, time has come to be aware of such elements, he argued.
The elements against party were acting both in and out of the country, according to him.
PM was of the opinion that party leaders and cadres need to follow the path shown by leaders Madan Bhandari and Post Bahadur Bogati. “They had dreamed of socialism, now we fulfill their dream,” he asserted.
The party unity also meant for materializing the national campaign, ‘Happy Nepali Prosperous Nepal’. Present government, as the PM claimed, was devoted to uproot corruption and malpractices.
CPN’s chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ said Bogati would be the happiest person to see the unity between two parties if he was alive. The party unification was his desire and we should respect it.
He took the time to recall the moment when Bogati made it possible to forge a consensus on the document presented in the first central committee meeting of the then Maoist party since the joining of the peace process, proposing to unite the party with the then CPN (UML). He remembered leader Bogati as a simple, ideologically dedicated, skilled and efficient leader whose activities were transparent.
“The Maoist movement had produced various leaders, but Bogati was rare, and it is difficult to find a leader with distinct capacities and merits as him. His contributions to the people’s war to the peace process were remarkable.”
His absence would always be realized in the Nepali politics and within the party itself. If he was alive, he could play a role of facilitator between two chairmen of the party.
“The party has two chairs. Difficulties may arise to sort out some issues between us, but he was here, it would play a role of facilitator to easily deal with such adversities,” Dahal said.
Trust chair Hitaraj Pandey described Bogati as a ‘dedicated leader’ within the party. He was of the view of following on the Bogati’s footsteps to take the nation towards prosperity.
Bogati who was born to Lekh Kumari Bogati and Bhairab Bahadur Bogati on July 18, 1952 in Nuwakot had passed away on September 15, 2014 due to a heart attack at the age of 62.
He was the central vice chair of the then UCPN Maoist and served as the Energy Minister, and Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation.
