Janata Samajbadi Party Nepal splits

KATHMANDU: Janata Samajbadi Party Nepal, one of the members of the ruling coalition, has split on Sunday.

The Upendra Yadav-led JSPN, which split at a time when the Nepali Congress has been taking an initiative to make an alternative equation with the help of Madhav Nepal, Nepal will support the CPN-UML-CPN (Maoist Centre) coalition.

Rajendra Shrestha, who had reached the Election Commission along with other party leaders, said that they took a bold decision to split the party after the leaders went against the statute.

“Among the 12 lawmakers representing the federal Parliament, we have the majority of seven lawmakers,” he said.

Senior leader Ashok Rai had reached the Election Commission for the registration of a new party with the claim that he has a majority in his favour.

Shrestha told journalists that the party will be named Janata Samajbadi Party.

Rai attempted to split the party when Yadav was on the US tour.
