Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal on Wednesday warned that the country is under threat from the ultra leftists represented by Maoists and sought unity among Nepalese political parties to strengthen the republican system.

Speaking at a function in Champadevi village in the western part of the capital to unveil the statue of late Pushpalal Shrestha, the founder of Communist party in Nepal, the Prime Minister said that the country was in danger of ultra-leftists due to the activities of Unified CPN (Maoist).

He said that there was no alternative to forging unity among all the political forces in order to institutionalise the democratic republican system.

"The current government is formed based on the same principle," he pointed out.

Pointing that the successful abolition of the centuries-old institution of monarchy was possible due to unity among major political parties he said they should work together to in order to institutionalize the democracy.

Nepal said that those opposed to the current government formed in consensus to complete the democratic structure were acting against democracy.

Nepal ended the 240-year-old monarchy on May 28 last year by establishing a federal democratic republic.
