POKHARA: The top leaders of opposition political parties slammed the UCPN (Maoist) and incumbent government for impeding the process of consensus.
Speaking at an anti-government demonstration in Pokhara on Monday, CPN (UML) senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal came down heavily upon the UCPN (Maoist) and it’s Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ for being a liar.
The UML leader was o the view that Prachanda is likely to face similar fate to that of former king Gyanendra if the Maoist supremo continued ‘cheating people’.
However, a soft-spoken NC Vice-President Ram Chandra Poudel said the people would come to the streets to end the Maoists’ totalitarianism, forcing the Maoists for consensus.
Poudel said that the Maoists were imposing totalitarianism forcefully by seizing the state authority thereby the President should give a wayout to the country without any delay.
Chairman of Rastriya Prajatantra Party Pashupati Shumsher JBR, UML leader Khagaraj Adhikari, NC leader Man Bahadur GC and Rastriya Janamorcha Nepal leader Shakar Baral, among others addressed the mass meeting organized in Chipledhunga.
