The Maoists, who were preparing to increase the size of their armed force before the 12-point agreement with the parties, have decided to dissolve their regional peoples' governments. This will be announced in a week. The central committee meeting held two months ago in Rolpa dissolved the United Revolutionary Peoples Council under Baburam Bhattari and formed a General Convention Organising Committee. Politburo members who were made working coordinators during Baburam's estrangement have been appointed secretaries, while the regional and communal government chief's were appointed members of the committee. The same organising committee is said to be disbanding the Peoples Liberation Army, five communal governments of the Magarant, Tamang, Madhesh, Tamuwan and Kirant as well as the peoples governments of Bheri-Karnali, and Seti-Mahakali. Changes have already been made in the central leadership of the Maoist affiliated student union and preparations are also being made to reorganise teachers, trade unions and women's organisations. According to sources former commanders of the dissolved eastern, western and mid-division commands Netrabikram Chand (Anant), Nanda Kishore Pun (Pasang) and Janardan Sharma (Prabhakar) have been given equal status posts in an army academy.
