Govt under any other party, except UCPN (Maoist), acceptable: NC leader
DHANKUTA, Jan 22: Nepali Congress (NC) leader Arjun Narsingh KC on Tuesday said his party does not have lust for power and that a new government under any other party, except for UCPN (Maoist), will be acceptable to them.
Addressing a press meet organized by Nepal Presss Union in Dhankuta, the NC central working committee member also challenged the Maoist party to tear the 2006 Comprehensive Peace Accord documents, as the party’s Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal threatened, a few days ago.
KC argued that anyone giving the threat of not abiding by peace accords is posed against norms of human rights and democracy. He said the opposition parties´ scheduled protest is for ending the Maoists´ totalitarian mindset.
Referring to the journalist Dekendra Thapa murder case, leader KC accused the UCPN (Maoist)-led government of promoting impunity, saying the government is trying to shield criminals, who have already confessed to their crime.
