KATHMANDU: The parliamentary party meeting of UCPN-Maoist on Friday decided to protest the cabinet decision to not sack CoAS Rookmangud KatawaL.

Leader of UCPN-Maoist Narayan Kaji Shrestha after the meeting said that recent decisions were not appropriate since Katawal defied the civilian supremacy and there was no alternative to sacking him. However, Shrestha said that they were yet to come up with the nature of the protest programmes.

The politburo meeting which is underway in Koteshwor decided to retaliate against the cabinet decision. According to the Maoist leader Jaypuri Gharti her party would boycott the parliament session on Friday after disseminating their opinion. They have also decided to organise a torch rally later in the evening.
