Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal’, General Secretary of Nepal’s extreme left – the CPN-Maoist, has said that he and his party would never support the promulgation of a new constitution through the incumbent Constituent Assembly (CA) on January 22, 2015.
“We will immediately burn the constitution a day after its issuance,” Thapa said at an interaction program in Dang district on Saturday, January 10, 2015.
“The constitution being readied would not be in favour of people. Therefore, we have announced series of protest programs until January 23, 2015.”
Thapa said the first CA truly belonged to people and was dissolved under a conspiracy. “The second CA has no rationale. It is only a place for drama and that’s why it has to be dissolved.”
On a different note, Thapa termed the newly formed Maoist party of Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ – the CPN Maoist, as being an entirely rightist party.
“Biplav’s party is not a revolutionary party. He and his group members does not have the capacity to immediately spearhead a revolution. They external appearance is that of a revolutionary’s but their internal nature is that of a rightist,” Thapa said.
