The meeting of the powerful organisation department of the Unified CPN-Maoists, Saturday, decided to change the name of its youth wing the Young Communist League (YCL).
The YCL – which has come under criticism from various quarters for its militant and often violent activities – will now be changed into YCDL (Young Communist Democratic League).
The change in the name will be endorsed by the central secretariat of the party, soon.
The meeting also decided to change the names of various sister organisations.
The names are being changed following the unification of CPN-Maoists and CPN-Unity Center Masal.
