Nepal Maoists gradually revive Parallel Government

The Maoist Party in the district of Surkhet, Bheri Zone, has revived its parallel government that was active during the period of their Peoples’ Revolt. However, after the signing of the Peace Agreement with the seven parties the party had dismantled the parallel State Structure.

The parallel structure that was known as Revolutionary People’s Council has been re-structured and renamed as “Village Government”.

The Maoists Bheri-Karnali bureau secretary Mr. Khadga Bahadur Gharti declared that the Maoists’ Village Government has been revived.

The Nepali Congress and UML local leaders have termed the Maoist’s fresh decision as against the spirit of the Interim Constitution and Peace Agreement.

This Maoists’ move is aimed at disrupting the peace process, said Dambar G.C local Nepali Congress leader.

Earlier in the month, the Maoists’ Party had revived Revolutionary People’s Council in the district of Sunsari.
