Chand led Maoist urges UCPN (M) to quit CA
KATHMANDU, JAN 26 – The CPN Maoist led by Netra Bikran Chand has said the path of consensus will be pursued only if the UCPN (Maoist) renounce the Constituent Assembly (CA). In a press meet organised in the Capital on Monday, CPN Maoist spokesperson Khadga Bahadur Biswokarma called on the leftist political forces to abandon what he termed the “reactionary CA.” “It would be just an illusion for the political parties including the UCPN (Maoist) to seek solution from within the reactionary Constituent Assembly (CA),” said the CPN Maoist spokesperson.
“We request all the leftist forces to get rid of the parliamentary illusion and resign to join the struggle for the people.” He said the CA Chairman Subas Nembang’s move to form a Questionnaire Committee was a total violation of peace accord. He added it would be meaningless to only stand as witness in the CA. “The possibility for consensus, cooperation and power sharing has been completely wiped out. It has move ahead by breaching the past agreements and peace process,” he said. The CPN Maoist was formed by the leaders who deserted Mohan Baidya led CPN-Maoist with the agenda of armed struggle in December, 2014.
