Prachanda warns against toppling Maoist-led govt

Warning of "anarchism" if his Maoist led government is toppled, Nepal Prime Minister Prachanda today appealed to the fragmented communist parties to join hands to thwart the designs of the opposition. "It is the time for the communists and they show of their skills.
We are not in favour of pardoning the elements that are trying to inject ill practises again by dividing the leftist and progressive forces and we are ready to struggle against such attempts," Prachanda said while speaking at the eighth general convention of CPN-UML. Addressing a gathering Prachanda said he has a dream of forming a single communist centre, Kantipur reported. "It will be extremely difficult for us to tame the anarchism that will emerge after the collapse of the peace process," he said adding all the political parties have a historic responsibility to conclude the peace process as per the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA).
The combined strength of all communists with the support of pro-left groups of Terai will make two third majority in the Constituent Assembly. It will be instrumental in drafting a pro-people constitution as per their wishes, he said.
If all the communists come together then the regressive forces (forces close to the former King) and those who favour status-quo (Nepali Congress) will never dream of coming to the power, he claimed.
