Chair Prachanda accuses President of not adhering to constitution

Chairperson of the CPN (Maoist Centre) Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda” has accused President Bidya Devi Bhandari of not abiding by the constitution as she did not authenticate the citizenship bill. President’s move could not be regarded as normal, said the former Prime Minister at the third national gathering of the All Nepal Peasants Federation (Revolutionary Centre) close to the Maoist Centre on Friday.

The forces against achievements gained from the historic people’s movements were still active, he said, adding that regression that began from the dissolution of the parliament last year still continued. He urged peasants to be prepared for a movement against it. “Regression can raise its head again if we fail to raise our voice. It is plotting a conspiracy and attacking historic achievements.”

In course of attacks on the incumbent government, he himself had to face corruption charges and misleading publicity with the aim of finishing achievements so far, Chairperson “Prachanda” claimed.

In another context, the leader said he was always active in uniting communist forces. Similarly, the Federation leader Balaram Banskota urged for the unification of communist forces. (RSS)
