Senior leaders of the United CPN (Maoist), which has stepped up protest against 'foreign intervention' of late, are preparing to visit bordering areas to take stock of the 'Indian encroachment' there.
A meeting of the Maoist politburo held at party headquarters Paris Danda, Koteshwor, Saturday decided to organise protest rallies in encroached border areas including Kalapani and Susta. Senior leaders will attend these protest programmes.
As per the politburo decision, party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal will visit Kalapani in the far-west and will preside over a protest gathering there while vice chairman Dr Baburam Bhattarai will join a similar protest in Susta, Nawalparasi.
Likewise, two other vice-chairmen, Mohan Baidya and Narayan Kaji Shrestha, will lead the protest programmes in Ilam's Pashupati Nagar and Laxmanpur barrage.
The dates for the protest programmes will be set by the party's central committee meeting, which started this evening, immediately after the conclusion of the politburo meeting.
The CC meeting will also declare programmes under the 4th phase protest movement for 'civilian supremacy'. nepalnews.com
