Retaliate if Nepal Govt resorts to repressive measures: Prachanda


The Chairman of the Unified Communist Party-Maoist Mr. Pushpa Kamal Dahal has asked his political cadres to forcefully retaliate if the government resorts to repressive measures against their protest beginning today, August 7, 2009.

Mr. Dahal instructed his cadres while addressing a training program in Pokhara, Kaski district Thursday, August 6, 2009.

“The Protest will lead to the formation of the National Government, however, I will not lead the emerging government”, Dahal was quoted as saying by one of his cadres adding, “Henceforth, I will steer the party.”

Dahal also told his cadres that the mood of the government was to take retaliatory action against their what he called “logical protest programs”.

Some four hundred Maoists’ cadres had participated in the cadre training program that saw the presence of Maoists’ top hats as well.

Senior Vice President Mohan Baidya Kiran, Vice President Dr. Babu Ram Bhattarai, General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa alias Badal were some of the top-hats of the party who were present at the meeting.

The security at the meeting venue was provided by the YCL cadres who were equipped with Khukuri and Lathi, writes Kantipur Daily
