The Kathmandu district convention of CPN-Maoist chaired by Mohan Baidya was disrupted and abandoned midway on Sunday, as the party members themselves resorted to verbal duets, fisting and chair-attack on each other.
With the convention heading nowhere, the representatives, however, headed to their respective homes leaving the convention unfinished.
The bone of contention among the Baidya Maoists was about selecting and forming a new district committee in Kathmandu.
Supporters of CPN-M general secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa (Badal) and secretary Netra Bikram Chand (Biplav) clashed with each other, despite efforts by another leader Pampha Bhusal to find a solution.
In the list of 99 members of Kathmandu district committee prepared by Bhusal, the supporters of Chand were not accommodated significantly. It was the main reason for the verbal and physical attack on each other, it is learnt.
CPN-M central committee leaders were busy until Sunday evening to make peace between the two fighting sides. The efforts, however, had not materialized at the time of writing this news.
