Govt committed to peace: PM

GAIGHAT: Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal today said that the major task of the incumbent government was to maintain peace in the country by giving a logical conclusion to the ongoing peace process.

Unveiling a statue of communist leader late Pushpa Lal Shrestha in Beltar Bazaar of Udaypur district, Prime Minister Nepal said that the Maoist combatants had to be managed effectively.

He added that the government was serious in implementing all the past agreements.

PM Nepal also claimed that all the current problems of the country can be solved through unity, cooperation and collaboration among political parties.

He also urged the political parties to be serious in the constitution drafting process as it has to be drafted by May 28 at any cost.

While the Prime Minister was addressing the programme, the Maoists were displaying black flags in protest.

PM Nepal said that the Maoists had started the politics of black flags though they shunned politics of guns. He said, “I urge the Maoists to give up threats of revolt and participate in the government.”

He claimed that the Maoists were disenchanted for not being in the government.

Earlier, at a press meet held by Press Chautari in Udaypur, Prime Minister Nepal had said that the government will help the Maoist in returning the property seized by them and settle the displaced persons in their respective homes.
