Stating that the policies, ideas, principles and approach embraced by the party match with Bhusal’s proposal, the CPN (Unified Socialist) had requested him to join the party.
Unified Socialist welcomed Ghanashyam Bhusal to the party’s fold during an event held at their office .
At the event held at Unified Socialist’s office, Bhusal stated that UML is suffering from a lack of ideology.
The CPN (Unified Socialist) has made preparation to appoint Bhusal as the secretariat member. On the occasion, Bhusal expressed commitment to make the CPN (Unified Socialist) a largest party.

He was the UML’s deputy general secretary. He also served as the Agriculture minister in the Oli-led Cabinet in 2019.
