KATHMANDU: CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidhya has said that the present government should pave the way for a national government, as it has been indulging in anti-nationality activities.
Speaking at a talk program on 'Question of National Independence" organised by CPN-Unified here on Sunday, Chairman Baidhya said the people's constitution cannot be drafted in present status quo, so the present need was of an all-side round table conference.
"An all-side, all-party government is essential in order to draft a people's constitution, so the present government should step down immediately to give a way out for it", he said.
Coordinator of CPN-Maoist Matrika Prasad Yadav said a joint movement should be carried out in order to remove the present government, before deciding for an all-party round table conference, reinstatement of the constituent assembly or new elections.
"There is no alternative among the parties at present to move ahead by recognizing the significance of one another", he said.
General Secretary of Revolutionary Communist Party, Mani Thapa, emphasized on the need of a movement against Indian expansionism.
Border affairs expert Buddhi Narayan Shrestha complained that the political leaders raise the agenda of national independence only when they are out of power, but turn a deaf ear to it once they assume power.
Likewise, political analyst Prof. Manik Lal Shrestha, water resources expert Ajaya Dixit, politburo member of CPN-Unified Yubaraj Panthi and other speakers called for unity in support of nationality.
