Practicality, multi-party system, reforms main threats to Nepal’s Maoist: Kiran

By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 24 April: Maoist leader Mohan Baidya ‘Kiran’, said identified practicality, defensive posturing, multi-party system and reforms were the ‘main threats’ to the CPN (Maoist) against whom a battle should be waged.
Kiran said this as Maoists prepare to form a united government headed by them and rule Nepal at uealt parliamentary elections at least 30 months away.
“Philosophically, the main threat right now is practicality. Call it multi-partyism also. We have to fight against them.
“In the political front, it is defensive posturing. That’s why we have to fight against these two,” Kiran said in an interview with Mahima Thursday.
The question was: “What chief threats do you foresee?”
KING
Kiran threatened to arrest the king as a last option if he doesn’t first vacate Narayanhiti voluntarily.
“We’ll decide on implementing a republic and then send a notice or letter to the king. The question comes of voluntarily vacating Nayanhiti. If he doesn’t leave the legal procedure comes in then.”
Kiran said arrest was the legal option.
Kiran also revealed Maoists will attempt to amend the interim constitution to make Prachanda president—the party’s first option to lead a government.
There’s no provision for an executive president in the constitution.
‘And now call it a prime minister and a head of state in the form of a president. Without being a president, the form will be there,” he said.
Prachanda said CPN (Maoist) will push for an executive president but will compromise on a prime minister also officiating as a head of state.
If Congress and CPN-UML don’t join a Maoist-led government, the party will move ahead alone, Kiran said.
“Moving the movement’s ship then comes naturally. We’re ready for that. Either alone, or whoever comes. We’ll move incorporating them,” Prachanda’s ideologue said.
Forum Coordinator Upendra Yadav said the first CA meeting cannot declare a republic by abolishing monarchy.
“It is impossible for the first meting of the CA to abolish monarchy. Those who are saying that the first CA meeting will abolish monarchy are fooling the people,” The Himalayan Times Quoted Yadav as saying in Dharan Wednesday.
DEATH OF SEVEN PARTIES
‘We should move ahead with political parties and groups approved by the people through elections,” Dr Baburam Bhattarai told Rajdhani Thursday as speculation mounts who lead a new government.
“Mention was made in the constitution of seven parties because they launched the movement yesterday. Can’t forever say seven parties now. All should move ahead with the fresh people’s mandate,” he added.
‘It’s our feeling that past bad feelings will narrow down and an environment will be created for national unity.. It’s for the king to decide,” Bhattarai said to a Maoist desire for the king to voluntarily step down.
