Maoists’ bid to trigger instability: DPM

KATHMANDU: Deputy Prime Minister, Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar, today chastised the Unified CPN-Maoist for trying to create political instability in the country by raising irrelevant issues.

Speaking at an interaction programme in the Capital, he said that the Maoist’s desire to lead the government was a mere daydream. “As the present coalition government is the national government, they (Maoists) should join this government rather talking about others,” he added.

The Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum (MJF) leader also urged the former rebels to behave more responsibly. “The UCPN-Maoist should play a role of a constructive opposition party. They cannot simply assess the government’s efficacy before the completion of its honeymoon period,” he added.

Gachhadar also urged other political parties not to look out for an alternative to the present government. “This government will complete its full tenure and also completes the tasks of writing new constitution and holding general election after promulgating the statute,” he claimed.

“The Maoists are unnecessarily raising the civilian supremacy issue while violating the supremacy of the parliament. They are making mockery of democratic norms and values by disrupting the parliament,” he said.

During the occasion, the MJF leader also promised to transform his regional party into a national one. “Under my leadership, the MJF will become the party of all people across the country,” he added.
