‘Attempts on to repeal CPA’
Feb 26, 2015-
UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal said on Saturday that Nepali Congress and CPN-UML are attempting to repeal the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and push the country towards a serious crisis.
Addressing a programme organised at party headquarters, Dahal urged the ruling parties to clarify their position on the peace deal and other past agreements. The Maoist chief warned that the opposition bloc will not accept the constitution drafted on the basis of majority votes in the Constituent Assembly.
He was of the view that the new constitution should address aspirations of the oppressed and the marginalised communities. “NC and UML are backtracking from the previous agreement; they do not have such rights,” Dahal said. He warned of launching a revolt if the ruling parties flout the past agreements which, he said, has laid the foundation of new constitution.
Dahal accused NC and UML of turning the CA into a Parliament based on their numerical strength.
He also clarified that street movement is their compulsion and urged party cadres to make preparations to make Saturday’s demonstrations a success.
