Dismantle YCL: Deuba

KATHMANDU: Senior Nepali Congress leader and former Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba today said that the Young Communist League (YCL) should be dismantled at the earliest possible.

Deuba accused that the Maoist paramilitary force was continuing illegal activities throughout the country.

Inaugurating a workshop organised by Shahid Smriti Pratisthan in Lalitpur, he urged the Unified CPN-Maoist to return all public and private properties seized by them during the decade-long insurgency.

Meanwhile, Bishnu Paudel, secretary, CPN-UML said doubts about the Constituent Assembly's ability to write the new constitution on specified time were widespread due to Maoists' activities against the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
