Protest made violent by regressive forces to slander us: Baidya

Kathmandu: CPN-Maoist chairman Mohan Baidya has accused that branding them as ‘terrorist’ were intended to defame their ‘peaceful protest’ by the foreign and national regressive forces. He has also claimed that anti-national and anti-people forces were conducting the violent activities to suppress them and slander his party.
Releasing a press statement today, Biadya claimed, “Some untoward incidents occurred in the banda period when the state tried to facilitate the defiance of the banda by misusing the state resources.” Baidya has also lamented the incidents occurred during the course of the banda programme. Likewise, he has also urged the protestors to remain alert and careful about all sorts of ‘conspiracies’.  He has reaffirmed his commitment to make the banda successful until 5 PM of November 5, the polling day, in peaceful, strong and effective ways.
However, Baidya, in his statement, has said that there was no alternative of dialogues and consensus among the parties. He has urged the government, political parties and civil society to take positive initiative towards forging new national consensus.
