“We have stunned the royalists and the anti-constitution forces by deciding to integrate the peoples’ liberation army into the Nepal Army,” Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of Unified was boasting at a cadre training session held in the district of Kavre, April 18, 2012.
“The forces that did not want to see timely constitution draft have been caught off guard by our lightening decision”, claimed a beaming Dahal and added, “The PLA have been integrated in the reformed Nepal Army but not in the Royal Nepal Army.”
“We have Laddu ( Rounded sweet) in both of our hands after the integration. We have been always resolute in our demands. We will not let go in vain any of our demands”, Dahal went on further to say.
“We stand firm in our demands for federalism based on identity and directly elected president. We have no option than to draft the constitution on time though it is certain that we will not succeed to draft peoples’ constitution at this juncture.”

In the course of his speech, Dahal also alleged that the hardliner panel led by Mohan Baidya Kiran was taking on the course of submission (Bam Bisarjanbad) and becoming extremely chaotic.
