UCPN (Maoist) leader Baburam Bhattarai named UML Chairman KP Oli and NC President Sushil Koirala as new ‘Junga Bahadurs’, indicating at the first Rana prime minster, who usurped the official power from the then King. He charged that they [Oli and Koirala] were longing for ‘Jungi standard’ after coming to power.
He further said that the ruling parties were singularly repeating for voting process albeit Interim Constitution procurements for consensus based constitution.
“The decision gatherings have dispensed with the “likelihood of agreements” independent from anyone else,” said Bhattarai. He said a way of agreement could be looked for if the decision gatherings surrender their stand of drafting the new constitution through procedure.
The former Prime Minister has blamed the ruling parties Nepali Congress (NC) and CPN-UML—of showing their egotism for the sake of drafting new constitution. Bhattarai warned that the ruling parties would be compelled to impart a destiny like that of previous King Gyanendra, if they forcefully issued the new constitution.
Bhattarai, who arrived here in Rolpa to head the dissent declared by the alliance of 30 opposition parties, charged that NC and UML have united and have been attempting to corner the UCPN (Maoist).
Terming Rolpa as the epicenter of People’s War, Bhattarai said the ruling parties have been given final proposal till February 28 to look for consensus. He expressed his hope that another way of consensus may be looked for after the nationwide demonstration by 30-party opposition alliance on February 28.
