Nepal warns more action in the offing for Gyanendra
Speaking at a program organized by Dhading Kathmandu Communication-Forum in the capital former Prime Minister Nepal warned the former King either to stop conspiring against democracy or to be ready to imprisonment.
He also claimed that any ‘power centre’ does not have the capacity to stop the momentum of the country in the present context, unless political parties were actively involved in safe guarding democracy.
“Any power-center can attack democracy only if political party leaders fail to acknowledge the transformation through which the nation is heading ahead,” said Nepal.
Claiming that the reactionary forces were intensifying movements against democracy, which he did not elaborate on, he asserted that such movements won’t affect institutionalization of democracy and republicanism in the country.
He termed the replacement of Nepal Army’s (NA) personnels, involved in Gyandendra’s security, by Armed Police Force (APF) as a ‘normal’ process.
“This is just a trailer, if you plot against democracy we will remove APF from your security and send you to jail” Nepal warned.
The government had pulled out NA personals involved in Gyanendra’s security on Thursday and deployed 50 Armed Police Force under the command of DSP.
In a different context, Nepal said that the political leaders have huge leap in resolving contentions surrounding the army integration and rehabilitation process.
He also claimed that they will settle all the key issues of the constitution writing like state restructuring, forms of governance, electoral system and judiciary system at the earliest through discussion.
