Maoist chairman warns ‘unholy alliance’ could jeopardise peace process
Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said the “unholy and unnatural alliance” of Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (MJF) could put the peace process at stake.
Speaking to reporters at the CPN-M’s parliamentary party office in Singha Durbar Sunday afternoon, Dahal said that implementation of the 12-point agreement, and the constitution-making process would be seriously hampered if the new alliance sustained.
He also said his party has urged the parties to break the alliance, and that dialogue with the UML had already been initiated for this.
According to him, CPN (Unity Centre) general secretary Narayan Kaji Shrestha ‘Prakash’ met UML general secretary Jhala Nath Khanal today to convey the CPN-M’s tidings to which Khanal reacted positively.
The Maoist supremo revealed that his party had not decided whether to stake its claim for government’s leadership in the changed political equation. nepalnews.com mk July 20 08
