Issuing a press statement, the Unified National Peoples’ Uprising Committee comprising of the 13 communist parties, April 12, 2012, also condemned ‘the police brutality against peaceful rallies held on Thursday’.
A press meet was also organized in Kathmandu.
On Thursday, the police had intervened in a torch rally held in capital Kathmandu organized by the dissatisfied/disqualified militias which left some 11 eleven people injured.

Torch rallies, signature campaign, march and mass meetings have been planned.
