'Maoists seek to dislodge Nepal govt'
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.
