Nepal Army may support Maoist’s next revolt: Pokharel
If there will be yet another Peoples’ revolt, Nepal Army will in all likelihood support the Maoists’ Party. Such a hair-raising statement was made by one of the Unified Maoists’ Party leaders in the district of Bardia, December 26, 2009.
Lila Mani Pokharel of the Maoists Party added, “The Nepal Army has the clear idea as to who were traitors and who were the real nationalists”, said Pokharel addressing the first district convention of the Young Communist League, YCL, in Rajapur of Bardia on Saturday December 26, 2009. Pokharel also urged the youth to remain committed to safeguard the country from foreign interference.
“Unequal treaties and unequal relations with India should be the major concern of the youth population and remain committed to safeguard Nepal’s National Independence.”
