MK Nepal warns former king will be sent to jail if he continues to indulge in 'regressive activities'
Senior leader of CPN (UML) and former prime minister Madhav Kumar Nepal said that ex-king Gyanendra has been "conspiring against loktantra" and warned that he will be arrested and jailed if he continues to indulge in such activities.
Inaugurating the eighth convention of Nepal Buddhijivi Parishad in Lalitpur on Saturday, the UML leader warned that the Armed Police Force
personnel mobilised for the security of the former king will also be withdrawn he doesn't stop his "regressive activities".
It was not clear what provoked the former prime minister to make such remarks against the former monarch, but Gyanendra had said in his New Year day message that the people of the country aspire for a "democratic constitution".
On the occasion, Madhav Nepal said the ongoing peace process has made major headway in the recent days and the political actors are also close to resolving the disputed issues seen in constitution drafting. He also expressed confidence that the new constitution will be promulgated within the May 27 deadline. nepalnews.com
