Maoists violating peace accord, says Nepali Congress

In a press statement, the party said that the Maoists have been engaged in murder, abduction and extortion.

These activities have been intensified in the recent past, claimed the NC.

“Manhandling and abduction of teachers, political workers and journalists have grown of late,” Nepalnews quoted the NC release, as saying.

The party also asked the Maoists to immediately release journalist Birendra Shah, who was abducted a week ago from Bara.

The Maoist highhandedness has created an atmosphere of fear and terror, the party said, adding that the Maoists must stop such activities.

The party also urged the Government to take strong steps to check criminal activities.

The NC said that the Maoists have not fulfilled commitments to allow displaced people to return to their villages.

The strong-worded statement from the NC central office signalled the growing differences between the two parties in the face of political deadlock after the suspension of the November polls. (ANI)
