Change of guard not necessary: NC Spokesperson

Nepali Congress (NC) spokesperson Arjun Narsingh KC said on Thursday that  his party is not in favour of changing  government. “We don’t believe that a new government will perform better than this one,” said KC.  The incumbent government is capable of bringing in new dimensions in the nation if all the political parties agreed to work together, the NC leader said.

Speaking at the 15th general convention of Save The Environment of Nepal in Chandanighapur of Rautahat district today, KC urged all the political parties to focus on constitution drafting process rather than indulging in the game of forming and toppling government. He remarked that a new government under the leadership of Maoist can not even be imagined unless they dissolve YCL and their arms and combatants are managed

While accusing the Maoists of dilly-dallying in the army integration process, which he said was against the line of commitments made in the peace accord, the NC spokesperson claimed that the Maoists are driven by the strategy to capture the state power. KC also expressed his dissatisfaction over the UNMIN’s role in the Nepal’s peace process.

Prachanda: Talking Revolt over Constitution Deadline

Dahal hits out at rotten pumpkin

JAJARKOT: UCPN-Maoist chairman Puspa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ today said that a “third people’s movement” will be launched under his party’s leadership if a new constitution is not had within the deadline of May 28.

Prachanda was addressing a mass meeting organised by the UCPN-Maoist-Jajarkot in the headquarters Khalanga. Calling the incumbent government a “rotten pumpkin,” he said that the present coalition had lost all moral grounds to stay in office, and, as such, people have to throw it out forcefully. He also alleged that “foreign forces” hatched conspiracies to make the Maoist-led government a failure.

Coming down heavily on the present government, Prachanda said it was an utter failure as it was formed by “losers” in the Constituent Assembly and “puppets of foreign power centres.” Commenting on the functioning of the “rainbow coalition,” he accused the government of not being serious about rising insecurity and violence in the country, while only trying to lengthen its tenure.

He said that though the CPN-UML and the Nepali Congress, the key partners in the coalition, had been trying to provoke Nepali Army against the Maoists, the army will never be tempted.
