Dahal: Peace process detractors against accord
Mar 21, 2015-
UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that the opposition alliance could sit for talks with the ruling parties if the latter show the commitment to consensus process.
Addressing the party’s mass meeting in Sarlahi on Saturday, Dahal said the consensus efforts were being thwarted by those leaders from the ruling Nepali Congress and CPN-UML who had stood against the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).
The Maoist chairman also said that the opposition protest will not stop if the ruling parties tried to enforce their agendas.
“Ruling parties were bit flexible after the recent mass assembly in the Capital. But it was not enough,” Dahal said. He added that the opposition parties were compelled to announce next round of protests to exert pressure on the government.
Dahal also said that the sentiments of CPA and the Madhes movement should be included in the new constitution. As a signatory to the CPA, he claimed, the UCPN (Maoist) has adopted utmost flexibility for consensus.
