6 October, Kathmandu. CPN Maoist Center president Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda has complained that even though they have been in the peace process for more than 15 years, their approach has not changed.
At the autobiography launch program of former Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa on Thursday, he remarked that there is still an illusion that the Maoists are still the same.
‘There is still an illusion that the Maoists are the same. Now we are participating in the peace process. Let’s leave the illusion that we are the same. The war has brought peace to Nepal. War has brought peace, constitutional democracy. I want to assure you that the Maoists are united by your spirit and desire for peace,” Prachanda said.
Remembering former Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa, Prachanda said that Thapa has recently expressed his opinion that every political issue should be discussed with Prachanda. He used to say that without talking to Prachanda every political dialogue and settlement cannot happen. He was in the role of a parent. In the final stage, they were presented as parents,’ he said.
