CPN-Maoist Centre Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that his party is committed to protecting interests of small investors in the share market.

At an event on Saturday, the CPN-MC chairman had said just an expansion of economic capitalism wouldn't ensure positive results for people adding that the real sector's development was slow due to investment of capital in the share market.

As his remarks were considered against the values of share market, Dahal said he made those statements on theoretical ground and was firm about his expressions while adding that the statements were true.

Dahal's personal secretary Ramesh Malla said Dahal''s statement on a theoretical issue was fully correct and added that his party was committed to ensuring the interests of small investors in the share market.

According to Malla, his party would make conscious moves and efforts for the security and interest of small investors. Malla urged one and all not to get confused and unnecessarily inflate the chairman's statement as a political issue.
