“We are in full knowledge of your plan of lingering the peace process and continue retain the militia. You want to draft the constitution under the shadow of gun”, senior United Marxist Leninist leader Madhav Kumar Nepal point blank told Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of Unified Maoists.
“Our Himalayan blunder was to hold the constituent assembly election without settling the militia and keeping the weapons in the container. If you think that you can draft the constitution without completing the peace process, Dahal ji, you are mistaken,” also said Madhav Nepal.
“We will not repeat the blunder again,” Nepal had it at a meeting between senior leaders of major political parties, February 20. 2012.
Analysts recall that Mr. Nepal began committing blunders after blunders when he went in search of the then rebels beginning Siliguri and Lucknow, if he recalls.
Dahal replied, “Don’t you remember the leader of seven party alliance Shri Girija Prasad Koirala had made the agreement to retain the militia because he thought Gyanendra’s Army was not trustworthy”.
“I am fully aware of the agreement but I had had my reservations. The NC president had made the agreement. The present chaos is the result of Koirala’s failure to trust the Army,” pat replied Nepal.
NOIDA secrets being now revealed.
Dahal then claimed that the peace process will be completed immediately upon handing over Militia to Army.
“Then, what is stopping you to handover the militia. Do it immediately,” Nepal suggested and continued, “Why don’t you understand that assurances matters least, you must come into action.”
“Your words and deeds must match”, said Mr. Nepal.
The meeting ended thus.
