CPN-M led 33-party alliance accuses govt of trying to push country into conflict
The CPN-Maoist lead 33-party alliance claimed on Wednesday that the High Level Political Committee’s plan to mobilise the Nepal Army in upcoming Constituent Assembly election is a plot to ignite conflict in the country.
A meeting of the 33-party alliance held at CPN-M’s Buddhanagar located central office in the capital on Wednesday reached a conclusion that if Nepal Army is misused in the name of security in the election scheduled for November 19 then the “consequence could be very serious”.
Holding a press conference after the meeting, senior CPN-M leader Dev Gurung accused the government and the HLPC of trying to push the country into conflict through its plan to mobilise the army in the name of election security.
He also drew the attention of the government not to move ahead with the plan to mobilise the army during the election, saying that election is an internal affair of the country and it should be held in a free and fair environment without the fear of any kind of feud or warfare.
The 33-party’s alliance also accused the government authorities of conspiring to destroy the poultry business by culling thousands upon thousands of chickens in the name of prevention against bird-flu.
They blamed bird-flu vaccines made by Indian companies of being actually responsible for the rapid spread of bird-flu in the poultry farms across the country, and claimed that on that very pretext the poultry business of the country is being destroyed.
