Nepal- Chand-led Maoists announce formation of people’s govt in Bajhang

Finally after years of inaction by the Bikram Chand-led CPN-M,[1], we see some movement for the revolution. The CPN-M broke away from the Prachanda led UCPN-M[2] a few years ago, after Prachanda settled for a position in the new bourgeois democracy that was formed after the end of the last insurgency in 2008.
The Chand faction broke away to pursue a more revolutionary line and a continuation of the revolution that never really seemed to come together.
The importance of all of this is that the socialist revolution that Chand and his crew called for never came to be and his group has been stuck, since that time, with no real plan of action.
And finally we see some action on the CPN-M's part. It may seem a small step, but it is a bold one and holds out some hope that Nepal's revolution is not yet down and out.
This is great news and a possible first step in reviving the stalled revolution we have all been waiting for.

From The KathmanduPost:

Jan 25, 2016- Netra Bikram Chand-led CPN Maoist announced the formation of people’s government at Bajhang district on Sunday.

During the programme, announcing the formation of 17-member district council under the coordination of Chandra Bahadur Singh, leader Pun said that they will run a parallel government if the government and parliamentary party do not mend their ways. “We will form people’s court and people’s army if the government fails to pay heed towards us,” said Pun.
Meanwhile, people at the programme said that Chand-led Maoist’s ongoing movement could give rise to another insurgency.
