Chairman Mohan Baidya ‘Kiran’ accompanied by his newly formed party ‘Nepal Communist Party-Maoist’ top hats met with President Dr. Ram Baran Yadav, June 24, 2012.
The meeting has taken place at a time when rumors in Kathmandu have it that India’s notorious intelligence agency, RAW had plotted the split in the Maoists party and had also advised President Yadav, June 13, 2012, to sack Prime Minister Baburam if he refuses to voluntarily quit.
Sanjiv Tripathi is the Chief of Indian Intelligence Agency-RAW. He keeps landing Kathmandu more so when Nepal’s politics remains in a very bad shape.
The meeting thus holds significance.
Baidya told the president that his panel had always stood against the government led by Baburam and claimed that it eventually became one of the prime reasons for the party’s split.
“The present government should be sacked by the President to form a national unity government. The government thus formed should declare a round table conference.”
Baidya also assured the President that his party has no immediate plans to declare a revolt and that the objective was to draft the constitution through a round table conference.
When asked by President as to why his party has been delaying its’ formal registration replied Baidya, “We will not take part in the CA election. We believe that the CA cannot draft the constitution.”
Yet, President Yadav’s meet with Mohan Baidya does tell that the office of the Nepal Presidency has fully recognized this “unregistered party”.
Baidya told the president that the four parties alone (NC, UML, Unified Maoists and Madhesi Alliance) cannot on their own resolve political disputes thus other stakeholders should also be invited in the round table conference.
General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal’, Secretary C.P. Gajurel, Standing committee members Dev Gurung and Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ were also present at the meeting.
