YCL won’t be dissolved, says Maoist deputy commander

Posted by Mike E on May 16, 2008

KATHMANDU, Jan 15 – Maoist deputy commander Nanda Kishor Pun ‘Pasang’ Thursday said that the Maoist youth front Young Communist League (YCL) would not be dissolved just because a few political parties demanded it.
Speaking at a programme in the capital today, Pasang said that the Maoist army would not be disbanded as they have played a very important role since the beginning of the Maoists’ people’s war right up to the peace process.

He also alleged that the preconditions set by other political parties to dissolve the Maoist army before joining the Maoist-led government was an attempt to disrupt the peace process.

The Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML have put forth the preconditions that the YCL should be dissolved and the Maoists should change their activities before they join the Maoist-led government.
