Baidhya drops threat of armed protest as last option
KATHMANDU: Chairman of the CPN-Maoist Mohan Baidhya said that an armed protest is the last alternative if parties do not bail the country out from the long standing political stand-off at the earliest and promulgate the much hyped pro-people constitution. Inaugurating the first assembly of the CPN-M Tamuwan State Committee on Sunday, he said that it will be unacceptable for his party if the constitution is not made for the welfare of the people.
He remarked that the revolution is not a desire but compulsion. Baidhya said that the intra party discussion is under way on the draft prepared by him for the upcoming general convention, and further said that his party has not concluded whether to go for peoples’ revolution or peoples’ agitation as the draft was not completed. He went on to say that when the people’s war was on the road to success, so-called influential leaders betrayed the party by surrendering before the government.
“UCPN-M Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and PM Baburam Bhattarai betrayed us time and again, owing to which we split from the mother party”, Baidhya clarified on the occasion. Baidhya further said that the peoples’ war was not played for making anyone a prime minister or president but for the liberation of the people. Lastly he said that his party will take to heart , all the mistakes and errors which his party had done in the past and will move ahead taking lessons from the past mistakes.
