"YCL follows Prachanda's orders"



MIN RATNA BAJRACHARYA
The YCL has become synonymous with violence. When will this stop?

Those who believe in justice and freedom are not terrified by us. Only unlawful criminals and feudalists are afraid of us.

The government is under the Maoists and the state has its own army and police. Why do we need the YCL? We are not a paramilitary force. We are revolutionary youth communist who hope to make a New Nepal. We don't do the same job that the army and the police do. In fact, we carried out jobs that they weren't able to do. We are a political committee. We are fighting for political goals.

What would happen if other political parties formed militant groups like the YCL?
By following us many youth forces likes NC-affiliated force, Madhesi youth force have become active. If these forces have been formed to oppose us then conflict will arise and this will definitely not help make a New Nepal. If they were formed for positive reasons then we have no problem. We are ready to work with such groups.

The prime minister publicly announced that he would change the way YCL works, why hasn't that been done till now?
The YCL is moving ahead under the directive of Prime Minister Prachanda. Under that directive, we haven't had many revolutionary programs. We have kept silent even though we have been attacked many times.
