Maoist split



The Kirant Workers Party (KWP) and the Madhesi Liberation Front (MLF) have decided to break with the Maoists. Both joined the Maoists hoping to raise concerns of their backward and disadvantaged communities. On 27 July, they decided to split. The MLF blames the Maoist leaders for creating a split among the Madhesi leaders and their party. A new Janatantrik Terai Front has been established, to be led by KWP founding member, Jaya Krishna Goit.
The KWP controls the eastern region and one of its senior leaders holds a key position as central committee member of the Maoists. This is a big blow to the Maoists because the two groups make up 60 percent of the Maoist army in the region.
