Kathmandu, July 9
CPN-Maoist chairman Mohan Baidhya Kiran Saturday assured that he would not allow any foreign force to interfere with the national sovereignty of Nepal.
Stating that the current government was inking various treaties with foreign countries by placing the national sovereignty and independence under the shadow, leftist leader Baidhya appealed to all political parties to combat any foreign interference against national independence.
Baidhya made these remarks while launching ‘Kina Pirchha Bharat Nepallai’ written by lecturer Dr. Chandraman Bajracharya at a function organized in the capital.
"Every party has internal anxieties but all party should be united at once for the sake of national independence. The polarisation of pro-independence and anti-independence forces is a must," he said.
Mentioning that the leadership of all parties had committed mistakes regarding the national issues, leader Baidhya said that he was disappointed when he saw the parties surrendering to India, the southern neighbour of Nepal.
All inequitable agreements and treaties with foreign nations, including with the northern neighbour, should be scrapped, he said.
According to him, his then party UCPN-Maoist had objected to inking of any treaty during Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai’s India visit.
to him, Dr Bhattarai inked treaties in Bilateral Investment Protection and Promotion (BIPPA), water resources and management of Tribhuvan International Airport with India even without letting party chairman Prachanda to know about them.
He reiterated that a political round table comprising political parties, civil society and scholars was a must at the current time and said that holding fresh election of the Constituent Assembly or revival of the dissolved CA was not possible.
He said that a third political force in the Nepalese politics was needed as political parties only focused on power.
Nepali Congress leader Bhim Bahadur Tamang, border expert Buddhi Narayan Shrestha and journalists opposed the interference by foreign forces in Nepal.
Meanwhile, CPN-Maoist general secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa Badal said that the UCPN-Maoist leadership and the government were trying to tarnish the image of his party and suppress its cadres.
Talking to journalists in Damak, Jhapa, Badal said that his party would launch a campaign to expose the move of the Maoist leadership and government to announce bounties on heads of its leaders.
He said that it was beyond the imagination that the CPN-Maoist would go for people’s war or revolt.
"Only the criminals or animals go into the jungles, we won’t," he said.
He accused the UCPN-Maoist of betraying the country and the people by dissolving the Constituent Assembly with an ill-intention of imposing a dictatorship.
He said that the reinstatement of CA or formation of any alternative organization would be unconstitutional and stressed an all party round table.
