Four left parties announce Nepal Bandh on March 6 against CJ led government
KATHMANDU: Four fringe left parties, CPN-Maoist‚ CPN-Unified ‚ Matrika Yadav-led CPN-Maoist and Revolutionary Communist Party-Nepal, which are protesting against the move of four major political parties, have announced a Nepal bandh (shutdown strike) on March 6.
A meeting of the four political parties called the bandh in a bid to halt the ground work to sign up Chief Justice Khil Raj Regmi as the premier of an interim election government.
Similarly the meeting also decided to take out a torch rally across the country on March 5 and Nepal bandh on March 6, CPN-Maoist politburo member Hitman Shakya informed media.
The Mohan Baidya faction of CPN-Maoist called Nepal bandh on February 19 protesting the move of four political parties to form CJ led government. The protestors vandalized the vehicle of press and hospital despite their commitment not to do so.
On the occasion, the four parties reached the decision that they will boycott the elections if they held under the government headed by the Chief Justice. The four major political parties UCPN-Maoist, Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and United Democratic Madhesi Front have decided to form election government led by Chief Justice as the political parties failed to find consensus for the post of Prime Minister. The political parties remained inconclusive about way out of the current political deadlock since the Constituent Assembly was dissolved on Mid June last year.
