Kathmandu, Dec 30 (ANI): Former CPN (UML) General Secretary Madhav Kumar Nepal has said the Maoists must bank upon the public support instead of relying on their paramilitary wings.
"It seems that the Maoists are not abandoning their arms as they still harbour panic about the possibility of a coup by the Nepal Army (NA). But, it will not help them gain public support," Nepalnews quoted him as saying.
He also prescribed the former rebels to lead the government in the right way by taking the Nepal Army in confidence.
He further said that the government should not bar the Nepal Army from recruiting new soldiers to fill up its vacant posts. (ANI)
