Kiran calls to topple the govt

KATHMANDU: Senior UCPN-Maoist leader Mohan Baidhya ‘Kiran’ today said his party would launch systematic movement from the streets to overthrow the UML-led government.

The movement would begin soon after the central committee meeting of the party, he added.

“We will launch massive protest programmes, besides the ongoing non-cooperative movement against the UML-led government,” he said while addressing a face-to face programme organised at Jana Sanchar Abhiyan. Stating that the UCPN-Maoist was seriously moving ahead in its struggle to overthrow the “unconstitutionally formed government,” Baidhya said that the party was also holding discussions with various parties on the issue.

Claiming that the Maoists were not power-hungry, Baidhya said that his party wanted to form the government under its leadership to safeguard civilian supremacy and the peace process.

Baidhya informed that that chairman Prachanda’s political document was not endorsed by the politburo meet, which concluded yesterday. However, the meeting agreed to table the document at the central committee.

Baidhya said that the Maoist leaders were in constant touch with UML leaders demanding that the agreement made with them at Godavari be implemented. “House disruption will continue unless our demands are addressed,” he said.

Earlier Maoist leader Narayan Kaji Shrestha ‘Prakash’ speaking at the Reporters Club claimed that the UCPN-Maoist was gradually gaining public support.

He said that Nepali Maoists were inching towards success in a way
