A senior Maoist leader CP Gajurel, Saturday, said that his party is prepared to unleash yet another “massive” struggle to institutionalise republic in the country as per the desire of people.

Gajural, who is the chief of CPN (Maoist)’s foreign department, came up with this remark while speaking at a program in Sindhuli.

“We are all geared up to launch such a struggle from the street, the parliament and the government,” he said adding that the country would achieve sustainable peace and development only after the success of another “severe” struggle we are going to unleash to “uphold the aspirations of ordinary people.”

He also said the certain foreign power centers including India are bent to augment their unscrupulous clout in Nepali political domain.

Gajural also lambasted the government led by his own party saying that it has failed to provide any relief to the people.

RPP’s Rana warns Maoists might very well grab power

Rastriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) chairman Pashupati Sumshere Rana on
Monday said there is every possibility that the Maoists might “grab
power” like they have been warning from the past some time since the
People’s Liberation Army (PLA) hasn’t been disbanded and the weapons
are still in their hands.
