Almost all the educated young leaders of the extreme nationalist movement then were either hardcore communists or communist sympathizers.
So naturally once they were back in Rangoon from their rural hideouts after the big war they tried to regroup various leftwing factions into a solid political front under the banner of fledgling Communist Party of Burma (CPB).
And initially the Socialists agreed to dissolve their PRP (People Revolutionary Party) and join the CPB to continue fighting the British for the complete independence.

Aung San and the thirty comrades trained in Japan were the top most echelon and majority of them were Marxist, militant thakhins handpicked by Thakhin Mya and thus the Communists. Their allegiances were with the CPB first and Aung San second. Famous Brigadier Kyaw Zaw (Thakhin Shwe) was one of them. Ne Win sitting on the fence and a few right wing officers among them were the exception.
