Prachanda warns of counter revolution

Maoist chairman Prachanda today said there is a possibility of counter-revolution in the country because of growing differences among the parties.

"I'm saying this sincerely.there is a possibility of counter-revolution in the country," Prachanda said during a picnic programme organised by Human Rights Concern Centre at Matatirtha, Kathmandu.

Alluding to the recent reactions of Nepali Congress and CPN-UML leaders to the Maoist victory in the polls, Prachanda said the reluctance of "some parties" in accepting the people's mandate has given rise to the possibility of counter-revolution in the country.

"Those who had not anticipated this kind of election result are finding it difficult to accept the mandate of the people," the Maoist chairman said, adding that huge masses should take to the streets across the country from May 27 to 29 as the first sitting of the Constituent Assembly on May 28 is set to abolish monarchy and declare the country a republic. He said reactionaries could try to stage a counter-revolution during this period.
