Baidya, who is facing various problems within the party and outside the party since the formation of the new party, has said his party along with 32 other protesting parties is not against the idea of talk. Earlier, the parties rejected the talks offer saying they would not sit for talks with the four political parties and the government. He added that they would sit for dialogue once there is a positive response to their three-point condition.
“Even if the government has called us for talks, we are not ready for it in the existing situation,” said Baidya who has arrived Dhangadhi to attend the 33 parties’ Mechi-Mahakali campaign. The agitating parties have been making excuse for safe landing their protest programs to show that the party is still following the revolutionary line. The faction is said to have been facing financial crisis to function the organization, while the party marred into intra-party differences on some important issues.
He however said there have been no talks held among the 33 parties regarding the government call for dialogue. The parties´ conditions include the scrapping of the 25-point deal signed on March 14, the citizenship bill and controversial appointment of Lok Man Singh Karki as chef of Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority.
Meanwhile, some handful of activists of the agitating 33 political parties including the CPN-Maoist picketed the office of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) for two hours on Tuesday morning, protesting the appointment of Karki to the post of CIAA Chief. The political parties picketed the CIAA from 9:00 am, saying Karki´s appointment to the post was unconstitutional. Traffic was halted at the area due to the protest program. Addressing the protest program Maoist leaders tried to save their face saying they have been giving continuity to the movement.
The 33 political parties have continued the agitation demanding that the 11-point agreement reached between three major political parties and the United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) on April 13 and the 25-point ordinance related to removing obstacles removing constitutional obstacles for the CA election be scrapped.
