By Stephen Mauldin at Nov 30, 2009
Chandra Prakash Gajurel, the Unified Maoists’ Party Secretary addressing a press-meet in Itahari, Sunsari district, November 29, 2009, has revealed that “indeed talks were held between Maoists’ Party Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal and Nepali Congress Party President Girija Prasad Koirala in Singapore to dislodge the current government under the command of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal”.
M. Gajurel nevertheless, accepted that it was a blunder made by his party to hold talks with Koirala considering that he still holds the key to Nepali politics.
“Yes, Koirala during the talks had said that if need be, the government should be dislodged”, he continued.
He continues, “It is in this light Prachanda after his return home had said that the government will fall in a day or two.”
He adds, “After Koirala returned home, the frail Koirala was not allowed to make any moves by his party leaders”.
“Political and Constitutional crisis is round the corner”, he said adding that “In order to foil avert the impending crisis we have declared the third round of protest.”
Gajurel threatened, “If political consensus was not reached after the Third round of protests, the party will declare fourth round of protest which will paralyze the entire country.”
“We will establish Peoples’ Republic through yet another Peoples’ Revolt”, he also said.
In the course of his interaction with journalists Mr. Gajurel also revealed that the foreign power that had elevated Madhav Nepal as the prime minister of the country is now planning to sideline him.
