"We haven't said we won't support other parties"



MIN RATNA BAJRACHARYA
There seems to be coldness among party members since the nomination of the party chairman for PM was withdrawn, although he almost secured a two-thirds majority.

That is a misleading statement. That was not a proposal from Madhav Kumar Nepal or myself. Party chairman Jhalanath Khanal and General Secretary Ishwor Pokharel proposed it. We tried and when we couldn't succeed we proceeded according to the party decision. So there is no place to blame anyone. The nomination was not withdrawn after we secured or almost secured a two-thirds majority, the withdrawal took place because such a situation was not possible. The Maoists pretended to support us but pulled out before the process started. What other parties said afterwards is public. The vote count is clear.

Did you say that if Khanal were to be a candidate, you had to be made a CA member and the acting chairman?
I don't have anything to say about such irresponsible and baseless claims.

Now will the party support the NC candidate?
The central committee is sovereign and will make a decision. The committee has repeatedly blocked a Maoist leadership government but has not talked of not supporting another party. The way the Maoists have closed all doors to anything but a government under their leadership for consensus has disturbed the possibility of national consensus.

What will happen if a Maoist government is formed with support from the Madhesi alliance?
We won't support or assist it. We won't accept such a government.

The Maoists have transformed, maybe you haven't seen it?
Then why would they need their combatants? Or their arms? Shouldn't they be ready for integration? If it is just about employing them, why do they want an army?

Proposal



1. Baburam Rai
JhalaNath Khanal made the proposal as he is a great Thagi, a renouncer . He Raja Harichandra of this age. He said,"No body has yet done such a sacrifice for the country and the people so far like I have done."
Yes our leaders like Jhalanath make great sacrifice every morning of the day. They  do malmutra tyag . Isn't that a great tyag?
