Top leaders of UCPN-Maoist has instructed their deputies in the Tamsaling and Newa State committees of the party to intensify preparations for making the mass meeting slated for June 15 a grand success.
Maoist senior leaders including chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and vice-chairmen duo Prime Minister Dr Babu Ram Bhattarai and Deputy Prime Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha held discussions to this effect on Friday with Central Committee members representing the two state committees.
"As at this moment, there is a great need of exerting public pressure on the anti-federal forces and those forces which are against progression, the mass meeting has great importance in this regard. And our meeting was focused on this wherein we directed the leaders of the two state committees to intensify preparation for the mass gathering," Maoist vice-chairman and DPM Shrestha informed the reporters after the meeting at party headquarters at Paris Danda, Koteshwor.
The mass meeting is being organized at a time when the opposition parties have blamed the Maoists for the dissolution of the CA and creating the present deadlock.
"The CA ended without constitution as some parties stood against identity based federalism. Now the mass meeting is organized to exert pressure on addressing the same issues," DPM Shrestha said.
