Kathmandu, Sep 8 (UNI) Nepali Congress has accused the Maoists of continuing their coercive measures and inclining towards totalitarianism even after formation of the new government under their leadership, media reports said here today.
''The CPN (Maoist) seem determined to increase the influence of violence and armed combatants in Statecraft instead of promoting peace, friendship and reconciliation,'' Kantipur quoted NC spokesperson Arjun Narsingh KC as saying, after the conclusion of the Central Committee meeting of the party.
He said,'' Because of the totalitarian attitude of the Maoists, the NC has decided to play a strong opposition role in the Legislature-Parliament rather than collaborate with the Maoists in the government. As Opposition, we will check Maoists' attempts to impose their authoritarianism on all state organs.'' Mr Narsingh also urged the two major coalition partners in the Maoist-led government-- CPN-UML and Madhesi People's Rights Forum (MPRF)-- to play a proactive role in the government and democratise the Maoists.
The CWC meeting, however, concluded that CPN-UML and MPRF had failed to judge the possible situation and could not show maturity and farsightedness while deciding to join the Maoist-led government.
The Maoists were responsible for breaching past agreements to form a government based on national consensus, and politics of unity and collaboration, he said and urged the Maoists to implement their past pacts in true letter and spirit immediately .
The NC has strongly opposed the idea of reintegrating "politically indoctrinated" Maoist combatants in Nepal Army, police and other security agencies.
The party has also urged the Maoist-led government not to politicise the bureaucracy, judiciary and security forces, and said any attempt to interfere in such State organs would not be acceptable to it.
The NC, however, vowed to play a constructive role in facilitating the Constituent Assembly to write a new democratic constitution for the sake of people's sovereignty, constitutional supremacy, territorial integrity, human rights and freedom of expression, and to bring the peace process to a logical end.
Acting President Sushil Koirala said, ''We will support and oppose the Maoist-led government based on its merits and demerits.'' UNI XC GT SSC1330
