Standing Committee member Bharat Mohan Adhikary of United Marxist Leninist Party says, reports Annapurna Post Daily dated November 1, 2012, “The UML will not object to a government led by anyone except Prachanda and Baburam.”

On the other hand, Bharat Mohan is quoted by the impressive Nagarik National Daily as saying at the same program, “The UML accepts election government even if it is led by Prachanda.”
Nagarik writes further, “This is for the first time the opposition leaders who had been demanding immediate resignation of Prime Minister Baburam had made such a remark. They had been demanding election government under the Nepali Congress leadership.”
