Maoists reject Nepal PM’s appeal

Kathmandu (PTI): Nepal’s Maoists on Tuesday said they would go ahead with a massive anti-government agitation and block the functioning of Parliament, rejecting an appeal by Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal to call off their stir.

A day after issuing a three-day “ultimatum” to the government to restore “civilian supremacy” in Nepal, the Maoists announced their months-long agitation plan that will start with a blockade of parliament on August 7.

Prime Minister Nepal had asked the former rebels, who are demanding the dissolution of his government, to abandon their agitation and forge an understanding with political parties on the crucial peace process.

However, Maoists said the government did not appear serious on their demands.

“We have rejected the Prime Minister’s call (for abandoning the stir) as the government did not give attention to our demand,” said CPN-Maoists’ deputy leader in the Parliament, Narayankaji Shrestha.
