Magar front launches struggle against federalism opponents

KATHMANDU: Magar National Liberation Front — a sister organisation of the Unified CPN-Maoist —has announced a struggle against anti-federalists claiming that their recent activities were antithetical to democracy and supporting autocratic regime.

“We will fight against the activities of some responsible political parties and some other elements against

federalism,” said Santosh Budha

Magar, president, NMLF.

The front has claimed that the Chhetri Samaj and Brahmin Samaj have been spreading rumours and conspiring to foil the achievements that the people were about to receive. “They are trying to create havoc in the society by spreading rumour so as to make people fight among themselves,” Magar said, during a press conference organised to make the

decisions of second national conference, public. “We request all the people to remain cautious and watchful,” he added. He, however, claimed that the MNLF would peacefully struggle and deal against them by forging alliance with the like-minded parties and organisations.

During the declaration programme of the MNLF organised at Damauli on Tuesday, newly elected general secretary of the front Sharun Bathamagar had announced that they were on final preparation to fight against anti-federalists. The new committee headed by Budhamagar are Onsari Ghartimagar as senior vice-chairperson,Basanta Ghartimagar, Lal Bahadur Susling Magar, Dipak Chartimagar, Narayan Burjamagar and Shuva Gurmachhan Magar as vice-chairmen.
