Publicise whereabouts of missing comrades: ANNISU-R

Kathmandu, May 15:

The leaders of the Maoists’ students wing All Nepal National Independent Students Union -Revolutionary (ANNISU-R) today reiterated that they would seek the whereabouts of their “missing friends” at different barracks before talks.

“We will not let the talks happen until we have all of our missing friends in front of us,” said Yubaraj Chaulagain, the treasurer of the ANNISU-R central committee.

Chaulagain, addressing the second district assembly of the Kathmandu district committee of the union after its 17th district conference, today said the party leaders who are in the government today were responsible and, therefore, they should bring back the missing students.

“We can decide for ourselves. Please do not bother about our future Mr Moriarty,” he said commenting on the remarks of Moriarty. Claiming that the palace and the Singha Durbar are both “conspiring against the people”, central committee member Bhupendra KC said a new kind of revolution would begin if the government conspires against the people. “If compelled, some six million students will topple both the Narayanhiti Palace and the Singha Durbar,” he said Former president of Kathmandu district committee, Bina Magar, said the revolutionary students will “calculate each and every act against them” while they were in detention. She claimed that many girls, including Kala Tiwari, were raped by the security forces and others have been inhumanely tortured. “We will not spare any of them,” she said.

She demanded that the government show either the place where 47 people were killed and buried or their bodies. “Different media had reported that 47 Maoists were taken from Bhairav Nath Battalion to Shivapuri and murdered.”

The 17th district conference held three years ago at Ascol had elected Dipendra Panta as president. Panta is currently missing after he was arrested by the security forces. Hundreds of students are missing while many have been languishing in jails nationwide.
