A day after Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal of Unified Maoists’ Party advised members of ethnic community to hit streets against those who have stood against ethnic federalism, one of the state committees of the party has served stern warning to the activists of ‘Indivisible Far West’ to either withdraw their protest programs or face forceful retaliation.
The Unified Maoist Party’s Seti-Mahakali State Committee organized a press meet in Kathmandu, May 14 2012, and threatened the supporters of ‘Indivisible Far West’ to withdraw their programs.
For the last eighteen days, the activists of ‘Indivisible Far-West’ have shutdown the far western region. The demand goes against the Maoists’ idea of splitting the far western region to create a Tharu State in the Tarai plains and another in the hilly part of the region.
The in-charge of Seti-Mahakali State Committee Dharmendra Bastola claimed that the demand of indivisible far-west basically goes against the spirit of federalism.
“The demand is intended to support reactionary, feudal, capitalist, imperialist, anti-national and expansionist forces”, claimed Bastola and added, “The districts of Kailali and Kanchanpur will be transformed into Tharuwan State and seven districts of Seti and Mahakali will be merged to form another state.”
“We request them to withdraw their programs else we may have to strongly retaliate,” threatened Bastola.
