“Agitation would save country from Maoist totalitarianism”
Accusing the UCPN (Maoist) of attempting to impose totalitarianism in the country, Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala has claimed that the agitation announced by the opposition parties would save the country from Maoist’s totalitarianism.
Speaking at a program organized by the Nepal Tamang Association to mark Deepawali festivalin Kathmandu on Monday, Koirala also said that the protest would also help in safeguarding the achievements brought by the People’s movement. “All the people have become aware of their rights after the people’s movement and institutionalizing the achievements of the movement falls upon the shoulder of the Congress,” Koirala said.
He underlined the need of establishing lasting peace, ensuring political stability, and taking the country out of terror, threat and totalitarianism.
Koirala also said the Congress was and is always in favour of federalism and accused the UCPN (Maoist) of portraying Congress as an anti-federalist party.
