Butwal, June 30:
CPN-UML chairman Jhalanath Khanal Saturday said that the UCPN-Maoist and Nepali Congress (NC) had lost their capacity to lead the country.
He said that the Maoists’ orthodox communist ideology and NC’s traditional mindset could not lead the country in the current situation.
Speaking at a Lumbini Zonal level meeting of the party, he claimed that his party UML was a rising power in the country.
Khanal said that the Maoist-led government was trying to remain in power for a long time by declaring the impossible election.
He said, "Holding the new CA election in the stipulated deadline is not possible."
He said that the Maoists were responsible for the dissolution of the CA. "They did nothing to save the CA," he said.
He further said that the Maoists were creating confusion among the people by dissolving the CA and accused them of pushing the country towards a deeper crisis.
He said, "They will never succeed to puzzle the people every time. The people should understand the Maoist ploy to misguide and confuse the people."
He also said that the hardliner communism and anarchy within the Maoists were what led to the split in the UCPN-Maoist.
He said, "The people should defeat the hardliner communists."
UML secretary Bishnu Poudel said that his party would give the solution to the issues of state restructuring.
He said that all leaders and cadres should struggle within the party to meet their demands.
UML politburo member Surendra Pande said that Dr. Baburam Bhattarai had only the right of a caretaker Prime Minister.
"President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav should take the steps to form the new government," he said.
UML leader Parshuram Megi Gurung said that the UML’s vision about the federal system was scientific and the party had no any internal dispute.
