Okhaldhunga, Oct. 28: UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has that a crisis is likely in the country after the Constituent Assembly (CA) polls if his party failed to garner two-thirds majority.

The UCPN (Maoist) Chairman said that the erstwhile CA failed to draft the constitution due to lack of two-thirds majority for the pro-change forces adding that the country would plunge into a disaster if the UCPN (Maoist) was not given the two-thirds majority.

Dahal was of the view that status-quoist Nepali Congress and CPN (UML) caused the demise of the CA despite 80 per cent works of the constitution writing accomplished.

Addressing an election mass meeting in the district headquarters of Okhaldhunga on Monday, Dahal claimed that CPN-Maoist and former king Gyanendra Shah were forming counter revolutionary alliance against the polls.

Coming heavily upon the CPN-Maoist, the UCPN (Maoist) Chairman said, “Joining hands together by Gyanendra Shah and Baidhya to stand against the CA poll is unfortunate. But their conspiracy cannot foil the CA.”

Dahal had arrived Okhaldhunga for an hour to address the election programme from Taplejung after addressing the election rally and attended a separate mass meeting in Solukhumbu district.

Upon hearing about arrival of Dahal, the cadres of the CPN-Maoist had obstructed the vehicular movement by felling down trees on the road.

On the occasion, UML district committee member Ishwor Joshi and over a dozen youths from different parties defected to the UCPN (Maoist). RSS
