Vice-chairman of the CPN-Maoist, CP Gajurel has said his party would not take up arms right now.
Speaking at a press conference organized by Revolutionary Journalists´ Association in Gaighat, today, he warned that his party would be compelled to take up arms if the Unified CPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN (UML), and Madhes based political parties alone sign any agreement bypassing their party. The agreement signed by the major parties without recognizing the CPN-Maoist will not be acceptable to them, he added. He alleged that the UCPN (Maoist) and Madhes-based political parties are chiefly responsible for the present political crisis, reiterating that the settlement of current political transition was not possible by the talks between some political parties. He said President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav´s efforts towards finding a political way out by calling on the government alliance and other political parties would be in vain. CPN-Maoist leader Gajurel said Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai and Madhes based political parties are in no mood of giving up the state power and it was because of this that the nation has to pass through the current political crisis. Leader Gajurel was for settling present political crisis from a roundtable conference and warned of street protest if it was not possible.
Incumbent govt cannot be changed into nat’l unity‚ says Gurung
KANCHANPUR: CPN-Maoist Secretary Dev Gurung has said that the incumbent government cannot be changed into national unity government. Speaking at a press conference in Kanchanpur on Friday, Gurung ruled out the possibility of formation of the national unity government and fresh elections until the exit of the Bhattarai-led government. The CPN-Maoist Secretary said that consensus forged by the leaders of UCPN -Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and Madhesi Front would not end the ongoing crisis. He further added that consensus would not be forged by giving time only for the four political forces and added political consensus was not forged due to unnecessary interference in nationality. Gurung also urged all political parties to unite for the cause of country’s sovereignty.
