The Maoist-affiliated Young Communist League (YCL) has announced a month-long campaign to mobilise and motivate youths for development and corruption control.
The decision to launch the nationwide campaign was taken by the two-day meeting of the YCL central committee which concluded on Monday, YCL chairman Ganesh Man Pun informed.
Speaking at a press conference in the capital Tuesday, Pun said tens of thousands of cadres would be mobilised for traffic management, development activities and ‘corruption control’ during the campaign.
The announcement comes at a time when the Maoist leadership is facing pressure from other parties to control YCL ‘highhandedness’ — with some parties even demanding that the Maoist party dissolve its youth wing.
Meanwhile, the YCL has also demanded that a separate ministry be set up to address the problems facing the youth.
YCL chairman Pun said that the issues of the youth like education and employment would be better managed through a separate ministry. According to him, the Maoist leadership has been requested to prepare for this
