Kathmandu: Nepal Maoists, who have
announced a fresh protest against the government from next
month, aim to dislodge the 22-party coalition, a top leader of
the former rebels said on Sunday.

The UCPN-Maoist have threatened to begin a stir from
November 1 if the government failed to find a consensus to
discuss in Parliament President Ram Baran Yadav`s
controversial decision in May to reinstate Army Chief General
Rukmangad Katawal, who has now retired.

Our movement will not stop simply by the president`s
apology for his unconstitutional act of reinstating the army
chief and allowing a debate on his move in the Parliament,
said Mohan Vaidya `Kiran`, a top hardline Maoist leader.

Now we want the Madhav Kumar Nepal government to quit
power, paving the way for formation of a Maoist-led national
consensus government, Vaidya told reporters here today.

The senior Maoist leader also reiterated the party`s
view of alleged Indian hand in dislodging the Prachanda-led
government on May 4.

We don`t want any foreign involvement in our affairs
as we believe that our domestic matters should be resolved by
ourselves, said Vaidya, who recently returned from a visit to
China along with Party supremo Prachanda.
