Leader Nepal warns Maoist against ‘threatening’ Prez
CPN (UML) Senior Leader Madhav Kumar Nepal has warned the UCPN (Maoist) not to threat the President. Nepal said such threats of the Maoist to the President is a tantamount to weakening of republic. The UML leader accused the Maoist of trying to drag the President into controversy by issuing threats. “The republic would be weakened if the President was dragged into controversy and none has rights to put the republic at risk,” Leader Nepal said addressing a mass meeting at Basantapur of Madi in Chitwan on Saturday.
Leader Nepal was of the opinion to forge political consensus within the deadline given by the President to the political parties for the formation of a national unity government. All parties should quit their partisan interests for the cause of consensus, Nepal added.
The UML leader also threw his weight for the national unity government under the leadership of the Nepali Congress.
He further alleged the Maoists of violating the agreements held among political parties and were showing totalitarian trends.
