After being ousted as Nepalese prime minister, speculation is rife that Prachanda has gone to London to drum up support to become the chief of international Maoists.

Reports say that the Maoist chief embarked on a week-long visit to London to secretly take part in the convention of Revolutionary International Movement (RIM), the global umbrella organisation of radical communists.

Maoist chief Prachanda Saturday left for London at a time when his party is in the midst of launching an agitation aiming to topple the CPN-UML led coalition government.

This is Prachanda’s first tour abroad since the Maoist government led by him collapsed in May, this year.
