“..the end of monarchy was not the end of feudalism, but the end of the central role of the monarchy in the reactionary power…. However, in this situation, a right opportunist trend that understands the democratic republic as the final success of revolution, and a left sectarian trend that minimises this achievement can sometimes be noticed in our party and in the society as well…. Even though the feudal monarchy ended, there has been little change in the semi-feudal and semi-colonial socio-economic conditions of Nepal.

Moreover, he said that UML showed political mediocrity by not joining the government for not getting the second position in the cabinet.

The Maoist think tank alleged both the Maoists and the UML of making mistake by drawing in a row over the ministerial hierarchy. “Politics is turning pathetic and this is a matter of serious concern,” he added.
