Opposition parties to wage ‘decisive battle’ against Maoist totalitarianism
Top leaders of various opposition parties have threatened to wage a “final and decisive” fight to pull down the current “totalitarian, unconstitutional, anti-people” government.
Organising a joint protest rally in Nepalgunj of Banke district on Sunday, leaders of agitating opposition parties - Nepali Congress, CPN (UML), Rastriya Janashakti Party, Rastriya Prajatantra Party, Rastriya Janamorcha, ML including few leftist parties - declared that they will soon wage a “final battle” against the government in order to compel Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai to step down and make way for the formation of a national consensus government.
They clarified that they are not protesting to only make it to power and grab key posts, but to protect the sovereignty and nationality of the country from an “authoritarian and corrupt government”.
Addressing the protest rally, NC president Sushil Koirala said that the opposition parties will fight till their last breathe against the ambitions of UCPN (Maoist) and the government it leads to impose one-party authoritarian rule. He also warned the ruling party against taking the oppositions' genuine concern and sense of responsibility towards the nation as their weakness.
Similarly, speaking at the protest rally, senior CPN (UML) leader KP Sharma Oli lambasted the UCPN (Maoist) party of closing the door to consensus and understanding among the parties.
He also said that the ruling party has lost its moral ground to continue to remain in power as it has continued with its authoritarian ways to impose its agenda. Nepalnews.com
