BANEPA, Dec 28: CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidya has argued that none of the political parties in the country are in a position to claim that they are legitimate forces with the country facing economic, political, cultural and constitutional crises.
“No one, including the president and the prime minister, can claim to be legitimate in view of these crises,” Baidya said, inaugurating the first general convention of the party´s Tamsaling State Committee in Dhulikhel, Friday.
Baidya argued that since constitution and constitutional organs are now defunct, both president and the prime minister have already become unconstitutional.
“The transfer of government leadership from Baburam Bhattarai to Sushil Koirala won´t magically resolve the deadlock,” he said.
While asking the parties to start agenda-wise discussions to find political outlet, he alleged that in the name of finding consensus, the three major parties are bargaining about power sharing arrangements.
“We have proposed a roundtable conference. If they refuse to hold roundtable conference we may launch a movement,” he said.
Baidya also vented anger against UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal who had alleged that CPN-Maoist was planning to launch underground armed insurgency.
“We will make the revolution successful by remaining in the cities,” he said, adding that Dahal and Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai are no different than the leaders of Nepali Congress and CPN-UML.
