Alliance with NC bears strategic significance: Chairman Dahal
KATHMANDU: Chairman of the CPN (Maoist Centre) Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said the alliance and the understanding his party forged with Nepali Congress had a strategic significance.
Addressing the extended meeting of the central committee of Press Centre Nepal Friday, Chairman Dahal revealed the fact that his party and NC forged alliance and decided to work in collaboration in view of the machination being hatched, pushing country to fascism with ‘blind nationalism’. “NC and MC are the major partners of the country’s peace process, so their cooperation will steer the country towards progressive path,” he argued.
Chairman Dahal further said the 12-point understanding and the comprehensive peace accord were signed with Nepali Congress. “CPN-UML is not major partner, but a mere witness. The NC is comfortable for both handing over power and taking power, but UML only wants to take and retain power,” he observed.
He reminded that his party made Prime Ministers to Madhav Nepal, Jhalanath Khanal and KP Sharma Oli. According to him, collaboration with UML was not possible because UML was only a fair weather friend.
Moreover, the Chairman claimed that the signatures he and the late Girija Prasad Koirala did for peace brought political change in the country which resulted in promulgation of the constitution. But UML did not accept the identity of the Maoist party, which is hundred percent faulty, he added.
He requested the media persons to be factual while making and disseminating news. The journalists were told to give ample space to the good works done by the governments.
On the occasion, other speakers including Press Centre Chairman Maheshwor Dahal said media could play constructive role on nation building and economic prosperity. RSS
