Nawalparasi, December 7

CPN-Maoist Revolutionary Chairperson Mohan Baidhya today said the constitution amendment bill registered by the government in the Parliament wouldn’t solve the present crisis.

Speaking at a press conference organised by Revolutionary Journalists Federation Nawalparasi here today, the leader doubted the rationale behind frequent amendments in the statute.

“In fact, the recent clamour over statute amendment is nothing but a cheap show. Earlier, the so-called big parties wrote it in haste and are now etching out amendment after amendment to serve the vested interests of one or the other party,” he argued.

Seeking that the constitution be scrapped, he said it was written under foreign pressure. The disgruntled Maoist leader blasted political party leaders for frequenting foreign power centres for he sake of attaining power.

On federalism, Baidhya owned up the agenda and said, “In fact, federalism is a Maoist agenda but as the present model of federalism has failed to address people’s aspirations, agitation, protest and the likes were expected.”

He also pledged his party’s support for the legitimate concerns of the people.
