Posted by Ramesh Khati on June 29, 2009

The Prime Minister’s secretariat issuing a statement June 29, 2009, has said that its serious attention has been drawn towards the media reports that claimed Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal in an interview with the Reuters-India had said that only five thousand qualified Maoists militias can make it to the National Army.

PM’s Press Advisor, Bishnu Rijal told the media that no where in the interview the prime minister said that only five thousand militias could be integrated into the Nepal Army.

“The Prime Minister had instead said, the statement reiterates, that we will totally abide by the Peace Agreement and the integration issue shall be discussed in the Special and Technical Committee” when he was asked if the entire Maoists Militias could be integrated into the Nepal Army?

 “No homework has been made so far to find out how many militias could be integrated into the National Army”, the statement quoting the prime Minister says.

“…Prachanda ji has said that he wants 3-5 thousand militias absorbed in the army, this he said upon meeting Girija Babu and me on several occasions”, PM said in the interview, claims the statement.
“If their own leader is forwarding such a claim then there is no question of integrating all Militias into the Nepal Army”, the statement further quotes the Prime Minister.
The recorded interview, both audio and video, of the prime minister is still safe with the Reuters, claims the PM’s secretariat in its fresh statement.
