Rabindra Mishra: Your organisation has been accused of physically attacking Himalmedia, whose turn is it next?
Shalikram Jammarkatel:
Himalmedia has been misinforming people. They had brought in outsiders who attacked our representatives when the talks were still going on. No one from our organisation attacked Himalmedia.

So journalists like Kunda Dixit, Kiran Nepal, Ashutosh Tiwari, Dambar Krishna Shrestha attacked your representatives?
That is correct.

Those who attacked you were the ones who were injured?
No one was injured, they are just making it up.

But we have seen pictures of people with injuries. If they had beat your people, they should have been injured, no?
Some seven, eight of our friends are also injured.

Oh, so even they are injured.
Yes, seven, eight of them.

But your group has a track record of intimidation and violence whereas Himalmedia has no such record.
No one speaks about the labourers who have been sacked by Himalmedia. Only Maoists are supposed to take up the cause. Why are we only blamed for the closure of industries and actions taken against the management of other companies? Why aren't other unions blamed?

Could it be because you are the only ones who beat up people?
No, we haven't done any such thing. The workers of Nepal understand what happened and will expose this plot.

(In an interview with Avenues TV on Tuesday evening, Jammarkattel said his group had indeed attacked Himalmedia and he threatened to do it again.)
