The meeting also endorsed the decision of the partyâ€™s ninth central committee meeting held about three months ago.
The meet called upon the agitating parties to adopt the policy of â€œdemocratic republicâ€ as the King had rejected constitutional monarchy and started direct rule.

The meet also condemned the government for issuing the Media Ordinance and NGOsâ€™ Code of Conduct. Addressing a press meet today, Bamdev Gautam admitted having held meeting with Maoist high command.
