Kathmandu, Sept 19 : The central secretariat members of the CPN (Maoist) today directed its member and Minister for Land Reforms and Management Matrika Yadav to apologise for his unruly behaviour, as he accused Deputy Prime Minister Bam Dev Gautam of encroaching into works under his authority.
According to Maoist leaders, Yadav during the meeting, refused to accept any wrong doing in recapturing the land that was held by Maoist cadres in the past.
Talking to media persons here on Thursday, Yadav said that since the issue of land administration falls under his ministry, it was unnecessary for Bam Dev Gautam to send police to 'free the land captured by Maoist cadres' in Mirchaiya of Siraha district.
After the police freed the land, Yadav marshaled his cadres to the area and 'recaptured' it claiming that the land belongs to landless and poor people.
He also vowed to smash all kinds of nexuses of land mafia, Nepalnews reported.
