No space for Maoists in front: Khanal

Ratnanagar: Standing Committee Member of the CPN-UML, Jhalanath Khanal, on Friday said his party would not take in Maoists in a republican front to be formed for elections to a constituent assembly.

Speaking at a ‘training of trainers’ (ToT) programme organised by the UML, District School Department, Chitwan, at Khairahani, the eastern region of the district, Khanal said it is not possible for them to work in collaboration with the Maoists in the front given the current situation and when the Maoists are still weilding arms.
