Regressive forces trying to topple government
Regressive elements trying to topple govt: PM Prachanda
Prime Minister Prachanda has said there are elements that want to bring down the Maoist-led government to install regressive rule.
Prachanda said this while addressing a function in Dhankuta on Saturday. The country will slide into crisis if the "government led by revolutionaries" fails, he warned.
The PM, however, admitted that the government has not been able to live up to the expectations of the people. "People are disappointed that the government has not been able to take radical steps," he said.
"The government is facing so many challenges at the movement. There is regressive threat, too," he added, "We had to tackle with these challenges."
PM Prachanda also criticised UML leaders for 'doublespeak'. "Those in the government are talking like opposition leaders."
