Leaders vow to make new democratic Nepal

Written by: Staff

Kathmandu, Apr 14: Senior leaders of the Seven Party Alliance (SPA) of Nepal today appealed to the people to make the ongoing movement for democracy a success to celebrate a democratic New Year.

On the occasion of Nepali New Year - 2063 today, the leaders have thanked people for their participation in the movement for democracy for braving government repression.

They have also requested the people to participate in the movement for the establishment of democracy in the Himalayan nation.

Nepali Congress President Girija Prasad Koirala said that in the past few days, the state has been responsible in the most serious genocide after Kot Parva, and that people, who received martyrdom will be respected as source of inspiration.

''As long as this autocratic regime is not ended, no inhuman force will be able to stop the movement,'' he said.

CPN-UML acting General Secretary Amrit Kumar Bohara has said that people will participate in the movement with determination until the objective is achieved.

''We are sorry for the pains suffered by citizens. This is our compulsion,'' he said.

Nepali Congress (Democratic) President Sher Bahadur Deuba said that in history everyone has given in to people's supremacy and that defeat of royal stubbornness and victory of people is certain.

Amidst pressure from inside the country and international community, King Gyanendra repeated his call for election and dialogue to restore democracy, which was rejected by the major political partries.

Thousands of people have come to the streets across the country demanding the end of autocratic rule of the King for the last few days despite the curfew and ban on political rallies.

Four people have been killed and dozens injured during the recent demonstrations where the security forces are accused of using excessive force.

More than 2,000 people were arrested and among them over 1,000 are still in detention.
