Parbat, March 26
Chief Minister of Gandaki State Prithvi Subba Gurung said there was no meaning in the agenda-less protest of the Netra Bikram Chand-led group.
At a cadres gathering in Kushma Bazaar of Parbat today, CM Gurung urged the Chand-led group to sit for talks by giving up illegal and violent activities such as obstructing development construction works and damaging state property.
Saying that revolt like in the past was not possible now, he asked the group to opt for peaceful path by holding talks with the government.
The chief minister said, “I urge the Chand-led group to join peaceful politics by stopping violent activities at a time when the country is getting stability.”
He further said that dissatisfaction was seen in the party over the issue of bringing CK Raut into mainstream politics, adding it would be better to see its long-term impact rather than criticising.
Gurung expressed commitment saying development construction activities would be carried out in a speedy manner for the economic prosperity of the state.
He added that unification of all levels of the party would be concluded by April 13.
