Clouds of uncertainty over Nepal: Maoists quit

New Delhi, Tue, 18 Sep 2007 NI Wire

Sep 18: Monarchy or no monarchy? Abolition or retention? , one of the contentious issue among the parties in Nepal came to the surface and Maoists just decided to quit the Government pushing the country to another phase of uncertainty.

Since the constitution of the interim government Maoists are firm in demanding the abolition of the monarchy and are not ready even to settle with the constitutional monarchy on the British pattern. They want the end of monarchy before the constituent assembly elections which are scheduled to be held in November.

Ruling out any resumption of old methods of armed conflict Maoists told that they now will follow peaceful methods of protest. They blamed the Prime Minister and the foreign intervention for the break-down of talks over the issue of monarchy.

Prime minister opines that constituent assembly will decide the issue whether monarchy should be abolished or retained after the elections.

Maoists have arranged a rally in Kathmandu to decide their further strategy. Blaming that Prime Minister is trying to save the king Maoists pledged that they will start a new revolt against the retention of monarchy.

Maoist spokesperson told, “We have quit because there was no response to our 22 demands and it is going to create the political crisis in Nepal.” They also demanded proportional representation system for elections. Apart from these Maoists wanted that people from People’s Liberation Army should be accommodated in Nepal Army which was unacceptable to Army.

All the four ministers in the government have resigned. The step was taken when their demands of declaring Nepal a republic were not fulfilled on Monday. The step may reverse the progress achieved after a peace accord was signed between the Maoists and government ending years old insurgency.
