“Now we have thousands of weapon, thousands of Army men and we have the support of millions of people”, said the Chairman of the Nepal Communist Party Pushpa Kamal Dahal addressing a mass meet held in Kathmandu organized by the United Uprising Committee of the Maoists’ Party.
“If ignored…our demands, we will show them what we are capable of”, threatened Dahal.
“We had two rifles, one was broken when we declared the revolt a decade back, now we have thousands of weapon, thousands of Army and we have the support of millions of people now”, he added.
“Such a powerful party (the Maoists) as and when opts for further struggle…just imagine what destruction it will bring to the other parties”, he warned.
The mass meet was organized in Tudikhel at the heart of Kathmandu, Maoists cadres emerged from all corners of the capital paralyzing the traffic, September 11, 2009.
“In the year 2052, we had asked them to meet our 40 point demands, they committed blunder by ignoring it…now, we have raised fresh 45 point demands, if they ignore our demands further, they will make another historic blunder”, Dahal roared.
“The ones who used to bow down before Gyanendra…they have made the incumbent President much similar to the King”, Prachanda said adding, “Honorable President Yadav…do not try to become a king...they will come to bow down… ignore them”.
“The Nepali Congress and the UML were kicked by the then King Gyanendra, they then needed our support…now there is no Gyanendra”, Prachanda recalled the past.
“I am not favoring the comeback of another Gyanendra”, he said adding, “But these party of the corrupts need someone as dictatorial as Gyanendra was only to teach them a befitting lesson.”
“However, if they resort to repressive measures against our protest programs, we will send them to Jungles like Gyanendra”, he continued.
“If they have the ability, I challenge them to put us behind the bars”, Prachanda said replying to a fresh remark made by the Nepali Congress Leader Mr. Ram Chandra Poudel who had favored detention of senior Maoists’ leaders to restore Civilian Supremacy in the country.
