BAGLUNG: UCPN-Maoists stalwart Dr. Baburam Bhattarai on Wednesday said that the present political deadlock would not be resolved unless the president corrected his move. Dr Bhattarai has ruled out a consensus should the President's move to reinstate former army chief Rookmangud Katawal was not corrected.

Speaking at a press meet organised by his party's Revolutionary Journalists' Union in Baglung on Wednesday, Bhatrarai claimed that the parties in the government, with the foreign aid, were hatching a conspiracy trying to send back the Moaists to the Jungle.

Dr Bhattarai also said his party could also consider bringing a vote of no confidence against the government and impeach the president should the talks falter any further. Meantime, he also threatened with another armed revolt if his party's demand were not addressed.

He further charged that the present government was trying to handover the country to ''foreign forces''. However, he did not clarify who were those ''foreign forces''.
