PALPA: CPN-UML General Secretary Ishwor Pokhrael today alleged the Unified CPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of breaching all past agreements and understandings reached with the opposition parties.
He also alleged that violation of the past agreements by the Maoist had plunged the country into deep political crisis. “The country is facing a grave political crisis as the
Dahal violated more than 90 per cent of accords signed with other political parties after a historic Comprehensive Peace Accord,” Pokhrael said while inaugurating the CPN-UML Seventh District Conference in Palpa.
Venting fury on the UCPN-Maoist chief, UML leader claimed that Dahal was playing with people and country’s future by working against the larger national interest.
“Dahal has signed on more than 32 agreements after Comprehensive Peace Accord. But, he has not implemented more than 90 per cent of them,” Pokhrael added.
On a different note, the UML leader admitted that his party had made a mistake by trusting the Maoist. Pokhrael also clarified that his party would devise new strategy as far as ties with the Maoist are concerned.
He accused the UCPN-Maoist of devising a tacit plan of capturing the state in the name of Constituent Assembly’s revival. “Why are Maoists for CA revival when they murdered the Constituent Assembly deliberately?” Pokhrael questioned.
On the possible solution
to the country, Pokhrael said that country must go for fresh election. The newly elected body by the people will promulgate the constitution and that body can be transformed into a parliament, Pokhrael added.
On the intra-party rift, Pokhrael said that groupism had gripped the party since party’s eight general conventions in the name of democratic exercise. He said that party had banned to fight the election inside the party making a panel from the centre to local level.
At the programme, UML secretary Shankar Pokhrael
accused the Maoist chairman Dahal and Vice-chairman Baburam Bhattarai of working for the interests of foreigner powers.
