SURKHET: Nepali Congress president Sushil Koirala has said that the Unified CPN (Maoist) will reach a stage of the Rana oligarchy and former king Gyanendra and fall as it has tried to impose authoritarianism.
Speaking in the press meet organised by Nepal Press Union (NPU), Surkhet in Birendranagar today, Koirala said that the Rana rule and the monarchy fell down as these regimes tried to impose unitary rule and authoritarianism in the country. He warned that the UCPN (Maoist) would also meet the same fate.
Koirala said that it was only the daydream of the Maoist to rule by threatening and intimidating the people.
Stating that the People's Movement of 2006/07 culminated with the abolishment of the 240-year-old monarchy, the NC president declared that the movement of the opposition parties would end the two-year Maoist rule.
Koirala said that the President should take steps now for safeguarding the constitution. The Nepali Congress president also accused the Maoist of attempting to attack journalists and interfere in the media houses and thereby gagging the media.
