Nepal Left leaders warn of political polarisation if parliament motions not implementedNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:32 am ICT by admin
Maoist leader Dr Baburam Bhattarai said that the nation will be clearly divided into pro-republic forces and “the forces led by the Nepali Congress” if the House directive on republic and fully proportional voting system are not implemented.
The government’s failure in implementing the proposals might break the ties of Left parties with the Nepali Congress, Nepalnews quoted Bhattarai, as saying.
Leaders of other communist parties, who joined hands with the Maoists in ensuring the passage of two proposals in the House, have also expressed similar views.
“The nation will see a serious political crisis if the government does not implement the motions passed the House,” senior UML leader Bam Dev Gautam said.
He, however, claimed that the Sunday’s developments would help consolidate the alliance of the seven parties rather than breaking it.
Janamorcha Nepal chairman Amik Sherchan described the passage of the motions as a significant development, claiming that the government has no alternative than to follow the parliament’s order.
While the Maoists and the CPN-UML voted in favour of each other’s proposal, the NC voted against both the proposals.
Nepali Congress (NC) leader Dr Prakash Saran Mahat defended his party’s opposition to the proposals tabled by the Maoists and the UML.
“In their attempt to forge unity among Left parties they tried to dent the unity of the seven parties,” he argued, adding that the NC wanted to go for Constituent Assembly election as per the seven-party agreements reached in the past. (ANI)
