Kathmandu, Apr 27 (UNI) Nepali Congress (NC) has accused CPN (Maoist) of giving continuity to ''irresponsible and criminal'' activities like violent attacks against NC supporters, murders, lootings and severing water supplies.

''Maoists have cut the water supply pipeline to 70 households in Dhikure village of Tehrathum in eastern Nepal for not voting for Maoists,'' Kantipur today quoted a statement issued by NC Chief Secretary Shovakhar Parajuli as saying.

''They (Maoists) have even erected their flags in the houses and said they have blacklisted NC activists for action with a view to terrorise them,'' the statement said.

NC said Birkha Fago, leader of the party's youth wing 'Tarun Dal' in Chulachuli of Ilam was stabbed to death by an unidentified gang.

Maoists has emerged as the largest party with 220 seats in the 601 Constituent Assembly (CA) polls held recently and has claimed the formation of government.

Meanwhile, the four parties CPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress (NC), CPN-UML and Madhesi People's Rights Forum (MPRF) have agreed in principle to scrap a provision in the interim constitution that requires two-third majority to both form and oust the government.

However, CPN (Maoist), which was opposed to the amendment earlier, has put a condition that there should be a presidential system and that the President should be from the party if the amendment is brought in consensus with all other parties, local media quoted a senior leader of the MPRF as saying.

Other parties favoured prime ministerial system.
