Deuba waxes eloquent on crisis

TAULIHAWA: Senior Nepali Congress leader Sher Bahadur Deuba warned of attempts at sowing seeds of discord between pro-republic and monarchists on Monday.

Speaking at a press conference in Taulihawa, Kapilvastu, Deuba said that the crisis plaguing the country is due to the current political deadlock. He added that there are two kinds of divisions in all the three major parties, UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress and CPN-UML which is affecting cadres of the parties.

In another context, Deuba also a former prime minister backed the integration process of Maoist PLA fighters preceding the new constitution. He reasoned that if the task could not be settled, lasting peace in the country would remain an illusion. He also accused the Maoists of violating past pacts and agreements including the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
