Dahal said the present government would be responsible for the situation arising from the street movement. He said the protests would be peaceful.
The Maoist chairman made it clear that his party agreed to join the high-level mechanism of major parties for timely completion of the peace process and the constitution-writing and that the Maoist party is not concerned about a mechanism that is meant to oversee the government's affairs.
He also insisted that there is no alternative to a Maoist-led national government to bring the peace process to a logical end and write new constitution on time.
Mentioning that 'reactionaries' are creating rumours that the Maoists are preparing to return to armed movement again, Dahal said such rumours are meant to defame the party.
He also said the central committee meeting, which ended on Saturday, has bolstered the party unity.
The Maoist CC meeting which ran for three weeks decided to adopt multi-post leadership system with Dahal as chairman, three vice-chairmen, a general secretary and two secretaries. It also decided to have a standing committee as the top body in place of the central secretariat.
The CC also passed a 15-point code of ethics for the party leaders. As per the code of ethics, all central leaders are required to surrender their private properties to the party and they will be restricted from sending their children abroad for education. nepalnews.com
