33 PARTIES TO INTENSIFY PROTESTS Kathmandu, 31 May:: Agitating 33 political parties assessed their protest programmes and concluded that they would move ahead with further stern programmes, RSS reports. The agitating 33 fringe parties´ meeting held at CPN-Maoist also concluded that the efforts made from various quarters to split their unity, which were against the process of formation of the current government and the election process. They concluded that the timeframe provided by the Election Commission (EC) was tempted towards splitting their unity but it was made a failure. Talking to journalists after the meeting, politburo member of the CPN-Maoist, Haribhakta Kandel, said all the 33 agitating political parties gave a message of unity among them by not registering them in the EC within the timeframe provided by the EC for the CA election. He said, "The election date has not been fixed and ordinance regarding the election process has also not been endorsed. The government does not listen to the agitating political parties´ demands and that fixing the date for election right now is meaningless." Holding talks with government was not possible unless the 25-point agreement of the major political parties for removing obstacles signed on March 14 and another 11-point agreement were scrapped, said Kandel. The meeting also decided to hold extensive interactions on ´Regression and Election´ in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Biratnagar, Birgunj, Butwal, Nepalgunj, Dhangadhi and other cities across the country.
