KATHMANDU, Feb 16: As the major political parties are busy holding parleys on the formation of a chief justice-led (CJ) election government, four left-parties, including the CPN-Maoist on Friday unveiled a two-day protest program, saying the parties were not actually acting on their own but dancing to India´s tunes.
They also termed the proposal of CJ-led government “anti-national” and the top leaders of the major parties “autocratic”. The left-parties have said that the top leaders of UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and Madhesi front agreed to the idea of CJ-led government at the under the guidance of India.
The left-parties, including CPN-Maoist, Matrika Yadav led CPN (Maoist), Mani Thapa led Revolutionary Communist Party and Kamal Chaudhary led CPN (United), have also demanded a national consensus government saying the UCPN (Maoist)´s proposal is against the spirit of multi party system and the interim constitution.
Organizing a press meet at CPN-Maoist head office in Buddhanagar, party chairman Mohan Baidya claimed the Dahal´s “formula” had actually been devised by India.
UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal had announced to bring a new “formula” at the inaugural mass gathering of 7th general convention. Dahal´s proposal of CJ-led government was endorsed by convention.
The Nepali Congress has already decided to accept this proposal, while the proposal is yet to be endorsed by the CPN-UML central committee. Earlier, UCPN (Maoist) Vice-chairman Baburam Bhattarai addressing a mass gathering at Khulamanch had said that the proposal would compel the opposition parties to come to an agreement.
“President Dr Ram Baran Yadav had indicated that the parties might be under compulsion to accept a neutral person as the prime ministerial candidate for the new government,” said Baidya giving reference of the meeting with him with president on Wednesday. On Wednesday, the president had held a meeting with leaders of the major parties, including the CPN-Maoist.
The leftist parties have also claimed that the proposal is the step toward imposing party-less system in Nepal.
“We will not accept the proposal at any cost,” said Baidya. The four-left parties have planned protest rallies in the capital and major cities across the country on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
