Badal warns of mobilisation of Maoist PLA fighters
Bara: UCPN (Maoist) General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal’ has said that the cantoned People Liberation Army (PLA) combatants could be mobilised against meddlesome foreign forces. “We will direct the PLA fighters to fight a war if any foreign power centre tries to interfere in our internal affairs and encroach upon our territory,” said Thapa at a programme organised by the Maoist party’s Bhojpura-Madhesh State Committee in memory of activists Ram Prakash Yadav, Dara Yadav, Ambika Mahato and Rajesh Mandal, whom unknown armed groups had murdered recently.
“The government, with help from India, is trying its best to make our party LTTE. But we will make the government bite the dust,” said Thapa. He blamed India for protecting the murderers of the four Maoist cadre. He went on to claim that plots were being hatched to derail the peace process and dissolve the elected Constituent Assembly.
