Nepalese Maoists have threatened of "people's revolt", saying that national regressive forces and foreign powers are conspiring to foil the peace process and constitution drafting process.
Alleging they smelt a plot, Maoist strongman Prachanda warned against hurdles being put in the way of peace process as the Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal called for all parties to take a united stand on the constitution draft.
National regressive and foreign hegemonic forces are getting together to foil peace and constitution writing processes, Prachanda claimed.
"If this conspiracy overrides the historic peace process, the people's revolt will be inevitable and the people along with government employees should be ready to make sacrifice and foil the plot," he said, inaugurating the first national convention of Nepal National Employees' Federation in Kathmandu on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Nepal has underlined the need for forging co-alliance among political parties to take the peace process to a logical conclusion and to draft the new constitution.
He asked the opposition UCPN-Maoist which is launching agitation, to move ahead by showing flexibility in order to resolve the current political impasse.
Talking to reporters after laying a foundation stone of Nepal-Korea Institute of Technology at Tamanagar of Butawal Municipality in western Nepal, he said that UML-led coalition government would not collapse as claimed by Prachanda.
