Kathmandu: Former Prime Minister of Nepal Baburam Bhattarai has announced his resignation as the Vice chairman of UCPN-M following a dispute with party supremo Prachanda.
Bhattarai`s resignation yesterday came after differences surfaced between between him and party Chairman Prachanda over appointments of some members in key positions in the party, sources said.
Meanwhile, Prachanda called a high level meeting today with senior leaders of Unified Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (UCPN-M) in an attempt to settle the intra-party squabble and finalise the appointments.
