Peace talks homework in final stage: Mahara

Pyuthan, September 23 :

Maoist spokesperson and coordinator of the Maoists’ talks team Krishna Bahadur Mahara today said that the homework for the summit talks was in the final phase.

Addressing a gathering at Jaspur in Pyuthan today, Mahara said the homework for summit talks from the Maoists’ side was in its final phase and that the impending talks would go ahead positively.

“It is sheer political ignorance to ask the Jana Mukti Sena to lay down its weapons before the election to the constituent assembly,” said Mahara. He alleged a conspiracy was afoot to invite another crisis through the means of depriving the Maoist army of its arms.

The Maoists are dedicated to making the peace talks successful, said Mahara, adding that some leaders of political parties are still kowtowing to New Delhi and Washington.

He said foreign investment would be welcome for Nepal’s independent national economy, adding that the foreign policy would be made as per the agreement with the neighbouring countries after Maoists form government. He also stressed the need for unification of all communist parties in Nepal.
