“India had played a supportive role during the signing of 12-point agreement,” said Dahal, speaking at a programme organised in the Capital today. “India should play such role one more time to conclude the peace process.”
Saying that his party has become flexible in the twin tasks of peace and statute drafting processes, Dahal alleged the Nepali Congress (NC) and the CPN-UML have been making the processes complex.
He opined that an agreement similar to the 12-point should be forged to take the NC and the UML into confidence. The 12-point understanding led to the signing of Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) that brought the former rebel party Maoists to the main stream politics.
The Maoist chief said his party itself would conclude the processes even if the other parties do not come to terms.
At the same programme, Madhesi Janadhikar Forum-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav said that the Maoist party would be blamed if the peace process was not concluded.
“The government is led by Maoists, the combatants belong to the Maoists, Dahal, who signed the Comprehensive Peace Accord, is also the Maoists,” said Yadav. “And if the peace process is delayed, the blame goes to Maoists.”
