Simara: Two state assembly members from Bara have identified themselves as the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Socialist). They reached the Election Commission office in Janakpur on Sunday and identified themselves.
Bishwakarma is directly elected from Province 4 (a) and Gurung is a proportional MP. Earlier, 11 out of 21 UML members reached Janakpur and identified themselves as socialists.
He was said to have chosen the UML after failing to identify himself as a socialist. He has been criticized for repeatedly changing factions as the party moves towards division. Earlier, he had chosen KP Oli’s side. Shortly afterwards, he returned to Madhav’s side. Since then, there have been rumors that UML has chosen Madhav as he has not been identified.
Unable to slow down the discussion, he has identified himself in favor of the socialists. Criticism of him has resumed after he identified himself as a socialist. After identifying him as a socialist, the leaders and activists of the Maoist center in Bara have also congratulated him on social media saying that it is a welcome decision.
After the identification of Bishwakarma and Gurung, the number of Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Socialist) in the two state assemblies has reached 13. Earlier, 11 people had identified themselves as socialists.
