Maoists to declare autonomous states in 3rd-phase agitation
KATHMANDU, NOV 14 – Unified CPN (Maoist) Secretary CP Gajurel said that his party is preparing to declare autonomous states as per the party strategy in new phase of agitation which is on the horizon.
Speaking to the media people in Dharan on Saturday, he stated that if the parties agree upon discussing the Maoist resolution motion tabled at the Legislture-Parliament then the Maoists will let the House business resume. Otherwise, he said, his party will resort to a fresh round of agitation in a new way. According to him, the new agitation will be more intense but peaceful.
Gajurel, who earlier today in Dhankuta said the declaration of authonomous states and capture of the government offices was against the party policy and that the party will not approve such incidents, dubbed the declaration of Kirat Autonomous State in eastern hilly districts and the seizure of Dhankuta Municipality as but rumours.
As per the party strategy, he said, the Unified CPN (Maoist) will declare autonomous states during the third-phase of protest.
