Nepal’s Prime Minister Dr. Babu Ram Bhattarai has said that “we in the Maoist party were all positive in order to make our political organisation a solid entity”.
He made these observations while talking to Naya Patrika daily, published today, March 22, 2012.
But, laments the Nepal PM, and claims that the Mohan Baidya panel is pushing various hurdles in the process of forging unity among the party leaders.
However, he claims that the majority of the party leaders, cadres and the likes prefer the timely conclusion of the ongoing peace process and also of the draft of the constitution.
“Ultimately, Mohan Baidya and his panel will have to subscribe to the majority view because there is no other alternative left with that panel”, so hopes Nepal Prime Minister Bhattarai in the interview.
“If they become positive to our views on peace and constitution then our unity moves with the opposing panel is possible which, if that happens, will be an added advantage for the nation as well”, continued the Prime Minister who is having a rough and tough time with Mohan Baidya and his panel.
The panel led by Mohan Baidya is hell bent on forcing PM Bhattarai to tender his resignation.
He then warns his rivals by stating that “if they do not take steps as per the need and demands of the nation then that may be counterproductive for the entire opposing panel”.
Will Mohan Baidya and his panel be sacked from the party once and for all?
During the course of his interview the Nepal PM also said that both extreme anarchists and Rightists prefer that the constitution could not be drafted on time, however, their designs will ultimately fail simply because their strength is almost cipher.
By the way, Mohan Baidya is busy in the formation of a Unified Communist Front with the support of the former Maoists leaders, Matrika Yadav and Mani Thapa.
