Baidya Says Captured Properties of ‘Feudalists’ Won’t be Returned
02 Jan 2009
Even as CPN (Maoist) has already expressed commitment to return private and public property it seized during the insurgency period, a senior leader of the former rebel party has said that “the captured houses and properties of feudalists will not be returned”.
Head of CPN (Maoist) all-powerful Organisation Department Mohan Baidya said that there will be no compromises on this matter as the party had chiefly waged the people’s war to end feudalism.
This remark by Baidya who is considered a party hawk and heads a radical faction inside the party comes a day after Prime Minister and party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal assured that the properties seized by the Maoists will be returned within the next 90 days.
