The main opposition has termed the deal as a "breach" of past pacts between the main parties.
The main opposition has termed the deal as a
"breach" of past pacts between the main parties.
The Nepali Congress and the third largest party CPN-UML
have flayed the four-point deal between the Maoists and the
Madhesi front as it "breached" and "backtracked" the past
pacts linked to the 2006 peace process in the country.
Nepali Congres and CPN-UML are agitated over the pact
that includes the provision to oppose the idea of a state
restructuring commission, integrate 7,000 former Maoists
combatants into the security forces, ensure en masse entry of
Madhesis into the army and a "confusing commitment" to resolve
all outstanding bilateral issues with neighbouring countries,
the Kantipur online said.
The Communist party leaders also objected to the
agreement to withdraw pending criminal court cases against
Maoist and Madeshi leaders.
The Nepali Congress and CPN-UML have decided not to
cooperate with the Maosit-led coalition unless they agree to
correct the "flawed" and "controversial" deal.
"All the points in the four-point deal and most of the
points in Thursday`s proposal are highly objectionable,"
Prakash Man Singh, the Nepali Congress General Secretary and
spokesman, was quoted as saying in the report.
