9-point draft against national interest: CPN-Maoist
KATHMANDU, Feb 19: CPN-Maoist on Tuesday burnt down Monday´s nine-point draft proposal worked among the major parties claiming the agreement as anti-national. Addressing a gathering in Kathmandu after its nationwide shutdown, Maoist leaders said the party will continue its protests until the parties change their mind of a chief justice-led government.
"The nine-point agreement is against national interest. The parties plan to form a chief justice-led government on cue from imperialists and expansionists," said the party´s secretary Dev Gurung addressing the gathering after its general shutdown in Kathmandu.
He also torched a copy of the draft proposal. He also said that the plan by UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) to install the chief justice as head of the government will turn Nepal into Sikkim.
He also alleged that Shital Niwas, the president´s office, has turned into a playground of traitors.
Addressing the gathering, Matrika Yadav, coordinator of the CPN (Maoist), alleged that UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Vice-chairman Baburam Bhattarai are main stooges and the leaders of Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UDMF are secondary stooges of the foreign forces.
Similarly, CPN (United) leader Pari Thapa said Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi was responsible for the demise of the Constituent Assembly and UCPN (Maoist), NC and UML were the main culprits. He also claimed that the parties will not be able to conduct CA election.
Mani Thapa, the chief of the Revolutionary Communist Party, echoed Matrika Yadav and urged people and nationalist forces to be ready to save country.
Addressing the gathering, senior journalist Yuba Raj Ghimire urged Prime Minister Bhattarai to tell the country who holds the keys of the country. He also urged UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Dahal to tell the country who the foreign master is. Earlier, Prime Minister Bhattarai had said keys of the country are not in Nepal and Dahal had said he resigned as prime minister as he refused to surrender to the foreign master.
CPN-Maoist plans to present a memorandum to the president against the 9-point draft proposal on Wednesday and stage sit-in at Lainchaur.
