Party’s policy is people’s democracy: Bhim Rawal


KATHMANDU, June 30: The party’s policy is itself the people’s democracy. Thus there is no need of any unnecessary discussion about this, said ruling Nepal Communist Party standing committee member Bhim Rawal.

“The principle of people’s democracy has been embraced by the party’s statute. This was agreed among top leaders. I don’t understand who brought up the debate on the party’s policy and why,” said Rawal, while speaking at an interaction program organized by the Reporters’ Club Nepal on Sunday.

“The party’s utmost ambition is scientific socialism. People’s democracy is the party’s current policy. All the leaders should, therefore, follow it,” added the former deputy prime minister.

“If the leaders go against the agreement, it will invite political instability,” he warned adding, “If anyone has any kind of dissatisfaction toward the party’s policy, he should put them to the central committee.”

Rawas expressed dissatisfaction over the party’s failure to review the government’s works. He also clarified that the party has not held any discussion on reshuffling the cabinet.

“The party should review the government’s works. If any minister has failed to work effectively, he should be called back,” he said.

Rawal also said that the agreement reached between Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli and chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ during the unification between then UML and Maoist Center should be implemented.

“If they have agreed to head the government turn by turn, Oli should hand over the premiership to Dahal.”

Rawal also expressed strong disapproval toward the government’s decision to provide NRS 1 billion and Kathmandu Metropolitan City’s decision to provide half a billion rupees to IIFA organizers for holding the Indian film award ceremony.

“I am surprised by the government’s decision. Who took the decision? If the meeting of the standing committee was held, the answer would be known.”
