One step positive. Prachanda has agreed to come out of his cave if the prospects for peace become certain. He said this in an interview with the journalist Bhoj Raj Bhat. He talks about one and all issues in the exclusive telephone interview which can be played in Merosansar. Basically his points can be summarized below:
Who is Richard Boucher to call us terrorists and to determine our fate? We, the Nepalese should have the full say as to what we want in our country-Prachanda roared.
SPA decided to go for the formation of government and re-instatement of the parliament against the agreed agenda between SPA and Maoists. However, now that they have agreed to talks, it is no more a pressing issue.
Maoists are 21st century communists. They are not a group of dogmatic people. They are not fundamentalists.
Regarding the supervision of the rebels and army during the election, Prachanda was of the view that during election, both the parties should be kept under the supervision of some reliable international organization like UN and consequently after the election, there should be the formation of a new army comprising both rebels and army.
Maoists have no connection with the Indians and there should be no public illusion over this.
Democratic republic is and should be the goal of all of us. That is the desire of Nepalese. SPA should respect it.
Express your comments over his interview.
