Maoist disunity



Discord between Maoist leaders has created a rift among pro-Baburam and pro-Prachanda cadre. Sources say the Baburam camp is at a disadvantage and the Prachanda faction has already declared the areas in Gandaki controlled by Baburam as \'Zone of Traitor'. They are also holding the Baburam camp responsible for the arrest of 11 Maoist leaders in Patna last year. They have blamed politburo member Debendra Paudel and asked for his resignation. Meanwhile Baburam's supporters have accused Pratap Pant, president of the Maoist intellectual group who was appointed president after Bhattarai's supporter Ramesh Sharma was removed from the post. Bhattarai's group says that the arrest of leaders took place soon after Pant bid them farewell and left for Patna. Bhattarai is believed to have expressed disappointment over the action taken by the Maoists against his wife, adding to the disharmony in the leadership.
