Leftists come together to overrule democracy: PM Deuba
Oct 20, 2017-Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has said that those forces wanting to murder democracy have now united.
In his address to a greetings exchange ceremony organised by the Nepali Congress, Bhaktapur district committee here on Friday on the occasion of the Tihar, Nepal Sambat and Chhath festivals, the Prime Minister and NC President said that safeguarding democracy is the need of the hour.
"Democracy, republic and people's rights must be guaranteed. At current time, forces wishing to finish off democracy have come together," he said.
He added that the NC victory in the upcoming parliamentary and provincial elections was essential to tackle with such threat.
He was talking about the recently emerged leftist alliance forged by the CPN (UML) and the CPN (Maoist Centre) in the country.
Stating that the leftist alliance had imperiled the democracy, he claimed that such unity was for imposing Communist authoritarianism and thus keeping the people in threat and fear.
"Nepal's Communists parties intend to rule over the people through an autocratic system which will be more dangerous than the Rana regime in the future."
He further said that the communist political parties that were talking about nationalism could not be ever nationalists, underlining the need of unity among democratic forces and within the party to overcome the 'anti-democracy forces'.
"The country is in a very critical juncture," he said, pledging to hold the elections on the scheduled date and creating a ground for strengthening democracy through the full enforcement of the constitution. RSS
