Dahal also vented anger against the leaders of the ruling coalition for warning of deploying army if the Maoist protests turn violent. Challenging the government to mobilise army against the protests, the Maoist chairman maintained that the Nepal Army is not a private property of some parties and that the army would not act at the behest of the parties.
Defending the United Nations Secretary General's report on Nepal's peace process, the Maoist strongman said the UNSG's advice for a unity government is not intervention in Nepal's internal matter as claimed by the ruling.
