Press statement

In the present context, while immediate forward-going overall political outlet has been compulsory, by staging a drama of changing prime minister on the interest and guidance of the foreign power centres the old state establishment with misleading judiciary argument of executive power, has demonstrated a conspiracy to push the country towards "strengthening" retrogression and unavoidable conflict and encounter. Not on the necessary seriousness and activeness towards making the negotiation success through complying the cease-fire and that came-forward according the people’s will for peace and progress and apply the undersigning reached at the negotiation table, the old state has concentrated itself on a conspiratorial game of "divide and rule". In the present context, while the formation of new constitution through scientific method of constituent assembly has historically been necessity, what can be more immorality and paradox than a stupidity of using dead constitution as a protection-seal of retrogression, for which it itself killed in front of people of the world? These series of events have been major negative lessons for the major parliamentarian parties who, having demanded reestablishment of parliament and reactivation of the constitution, ignored the necessity of struggle for the formation of new constitution in the hope of "oxen’s delivery". The series of the events have further strongly proved its pro-people justification and importance of our minimum demand of constituent assembly. We strongly appeal to the major parliamentarians as well as to all patriotic and pro-people forces at this difficult time of the country to advance struggle both on the front of the table and on the street under a single slogan of political outlet through new constitution, without falling into conspiratorial game of the state.

We have already clarified that in the present state whoever is designated as prime minister by the palace will have qualitatively no more constitutional and moral capacity than that of Lokendra Bahadur Chand. Our policy on the negotiation table against him will remain as it was before. Finally we make a special appeal to the state establishment to make the negotiation atmosphere for the immediate successes of the peace negotiation by stopping to see pipedreams to abrogate the Nepali people’s willing for peace and progress, changing prime minister.
