KAVRE: One day after CPN-Maoist warned to take stern action against those involved in the electoral process and also warned to break the legs of those entering into the villages for elections, Vice Chairperson of UCPN-Maoist Dr. Baburam Bhattarai has said that CPN-Maoist Chairperson Mohan Baidya would be inducted in the four-party political mechanism.
He also claimed that discussions are being held to bring Baidya onboard and having Baidya on Board will resolve the disputes related with elections. However CPN-Maoist is yet to react whether the alliance of 33 political parties, which has warned to foil the elections, would call off their protest programs once Baidya was taken on board.
Speaking at a press conference in Banepa on Sunday, leader Bhattarai confidently declared that Chairperon of Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Nepal, Upendra Yadav, would participate in the elections.
“The CPN-Maoist led by Mohan Baidya would be incorporated in the four-party political mechanism,” said leader Bhattarai. He added that the current government should immediately announce the date for elections.
Likewise, Bhattarai ruled out the possibility of party-less system in the nation. He said the current government formed through consensus among the political parties would announce the elections date as soon as possible.
Meanwhile speaking at a greeting exchange program organized by his party in Banepa senior leader of the Nepali Congress (NC), Sher Bahadur Deuba, has said the upcoming Constituent Assembly (CA) elections have been the matter of life and death for NC.
Deuba further said that the second CA election was a must to ensure people with their rights as the tool of separation of powers was the assembly elected by the people. Deuba also hinted that UCPN-Maoist emerged as the largest party of the dissolved constituent assembly due to threats and intimidation.
Deuba stressed on the internal unity in the party, as for the NC could get majority only when the leaders were united, and said the nation needs a democratic constitution for political stability.
