Kathmandu, June 15
CPN-UML chairman Jhalanath Khanal Friday said that the era of the Maoists ended after the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly (CA).
Speaking at an interaction organized by UML Communication Committee here, Khanal said that the Maoists’ era of ‘racket and hoax’ politics had ended and the new era of principled politics of democratic forces was beginning.
"The Maoists killed the CA by dissolving it. The UML had no any role in the dissolution of the CA," he said, adding, "now the UML will organize a campaign against the Maoists’ steps directed against the constitution."
He said that the Maoist’s power capturing mentality was the main cause behind the dissolution of the CA and added that the Maoists’ politics of fraud and unfairness would not last long.
He said that the Maoists created a constitutional crisis and they fell in a trap from their act of dissolving the CA.
He said, "The Maoists have no moral ground to stay in the government. The government’s declaration of CA election is not meaningful without a national consensus and consensus politics among the parties."
Chairman Khanal said that the current government was against national consensus and it, in fact, obstructed the way to create an environment of consensus.
He alleged that the Maoists and the Madhesi Front were trying to divide the country and the Nepalese people.
He said that the Maoists neglected the NC and UML in choosing the backdoor to dissolve the CA.
UML Publicity Department chief Pradip Gyawali said that Dr. Baburam Bhattarai-led government was trying to stir a movement in the nation and added that consensus politics would never start before ending the power capturing politics of Maoists.
He said that the government was not taking initiatives to start political dialogues to bring the new budget and added that without political consensus; the new budget would not come.
He said that the Maoists killed the CA and started the rule of late prime mister Janga Bahadur Rana in the vacuum created by the latest constitutional and political crisis.
