Prachanda: Foreign Forces Behind Sinister Events in Nepal

CPN (Maoist) chairman Prachanda has claimed that foreign reactionary forces are acting behind the current political twist in Nepal politics, which could pose threat to national sovereignty and integrity.

In a press meet organised at its CPN-M’s CA party office in Singha Durbar to publicise the decision taken by the party Tuesday morning, Prachanda said the new coalition of Nepali Congress, CPN (UML) and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum is continuation of the political game being practiced during the 90s.

He further said the NC-UML-MJF coalition would push the nation into grave internal conflict thereby giving opportunity to foreigners to take its advantage.

Informing that the current government has stopped releasing the budget for People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Prachanda warned the situation would turn volatile if it continued to violate the past agreements.

According to him, reactionary forces had been trying since the Constituent Assembly polls to stop the Maoists from taking over the leadership of new government.

Amendment of the constitution empowering the parties to change the government with simple majority vote, demanding for dismantling of the PLA and delaying formation of new government were some of the instances he cited to substantiate his claims.

The Maoist Chairman also revealed that his party had received pressure from New Delhi to accept Girija Prasad Koirala as the president of the country. Responding to a query from journalists, he denied infiltration of Indian spies into his party, but said all parties in Nepal have contacts and relations with Indian agents, and his party is not an exception.

He also stressed on the need for unity among all communists, pro- republic forces and ethnic groups for safeguarding the national sovereignty and integrity.
