Kathmandu, May 17 - CPN-Maoist Chairman Prachanda Saturday said that the threat of regressive forces still exist and allege the Nepali Congress (NC) of encouraging such forces.
Prachanda said that the NC has failed to give up the reins of the government instead of accepting its defeat in the Constituent Assembly elections and added that such activities have benefited the palace’s entities.
Speaking at a programme in the capital today, the Maoist Chairman pointed out the presence of an act in the interim parliament through which the Prime Minister can submit his resignation to the Speaker of the interim parliament and claimed that PM Koirala has acted against the people’s mandate by not tendering his resignation.
Prachanda also strongly criticised the terms recently put forward by the NC for co-ordination between the two parties during the formation of the next government.
Speaking at the programme organised by National Human Rights Concern Centre, Maoist leader and Minister for Physical Planning Hisila Yami claimed that human rights were respected and implemented more in Nepal than even in the US.
