From The Nepali Press
"NA is now a Maoist army"



I think there was a planned conspiracy to prevent the CA from declaring the constitution. Earlier too, the parties wanted to issue the statute through a commission, but we won't let them betray the Nepali people. No matter how long it takes or how many times we have to conduct CA elections, we will make sure the constitution is declared only through the CA.

For the last four years we have insisted on working on the peace process and constitution side by side. But leaders of the NC and UML didn't take constitution writing seriously. They made grand statements about completing the constitution within a few days after we handed over our arms to the Nepal Army (NA). But even after that they continued to hinder consensus and refused to compromise.

The other parties are most likely conspiring to get the President to oust Bhattarai's government. But the NA won't support them. The Army is now a fully democratic body with republican values. Why would it follow the orders of the NC? A Nepali Congress leader recently said they were fools to believe the Maoists had handed over their arms to the Army and that we owned the NA. He is correct. If we had not been so clever, would we have reached the position that we are in today?
