Nepal’s PM urged to stop using term "People`s War"
Kathmandu: Nepalese Prime Minister Jhala Nath Khanal`s party has asked him to remove the term "People`s War", which refers to the decade-long Maoists insurgency, from the government`s policies and programmes.
The demand was made by the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist leaders at a Standing Committee meeting convened at Prime Minister`s residence in Kathmandu.
The leaders also urged the Prime Minister to introduce community empowerment programmes in the forthcoming budget, according to senior party leader Pradeep Gyawali.
Opposition Nepali Congress and other parties have already raised objection to the term "People`s War" used by the government in its policy document. They have instead asked the government to use the term "Maoist insurgency".
The voting for government`s policy document is scheduled to take place in the Parliament later today for its endorsement after Prime Minister Khanal furnishes clarification on various issues raised by lawmakers.
The coalition government is scheduled to announce new budget on July 14.
