Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal Chairperson Upendra Yadav says his party is not preparing for the merger with Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s Nepal Communist Party anytime soon.
Whereas some media have claimed that the two parties have begun informal negotiations for the unification after the merger of then CPN-UML and CPN-Maoist Centre into the NCP, Yadav says the reports are baseless.
Some media had claimed that the Forum is willing to merge with the NCP and its decision to join the government is also an indication for the desire to become a part of the big party.
However, Yadav, also a Deputy Prime Minister in Oli’s Cabinet, says his party is open to unification with likeminded parties and organisations in the future though such a possibility is slim anytime soon.
He says a recent meeting of the party has decided to unify with the parties which have similar policies, principles and ideologies, no concrete steps have been taken towards that end after that.
