August saw the formation of parallel district committees by the Baburam Bhattarai faction of the UCPN-Maoist as a reaction to tensions between Bhattarai and the party chairman Puspa Kamal Dahal (Prachanda). Throughout the month at least 24 separate committees were reported to have been formed with active district level leadership and membership. Similarly the RPP-N appeared to be following a similar path as a result of internal differences though not to the same extent.
The strengthening of political affiliations in order to achieve common goals was quite noticeable. In the FWR, like minded political parties along with civil society organizations appear to have succeeded in dissolving the UCPN-M formed Far Western Development Commission (FWDC) that was allegedly against the sentiment of Undivided Far West model (as the Commission comprises of seven districts only). It is a relatively well known fact that some senior politicians from the area support the Undivided Far West movement. In the East, various different groups demanding a separate Limbuwan state (9 districts east of the Arun river) formed an alliance known as the Federal Limbuwan Party Nepal (FLPN) and have restructured their district chapters accordingly. Similarly, some local Madhesh based parties and groups were attempting to increase local support.
Various pro Hindu groups, namely the Brahmin Samaj (Brahmin Society) were publicly voicing their concerns regarding issues of secularism, the return to a Hindu state and perceived attacks on, and the dilution of Hindu cultural practices. This was in reaction to issues of cow slaughter and an increasing awareness of religious conversion. In addition, caste based discrimination remains an issue still very much prevalent in many parts of the country.
As reported in July’s monthly, landlessness continued to be a contentious issue with increased activities of landless groups. A new commission was formed to address the issues of the landless, this time under the Ministry of Land Reform and Management though there appears to be very little faith in this commission as doubts have already surfaced regarding its operational motivations.
Finally, ADB funded projects were highlighted with operational space issues in both Janakpur and Sunsari mainly as a result of vested political interests.
