Terming it the biggest obstacle in constitution-drafting process, opposition Maoists in Nepal have decided to remove the coalition government headed by Madhav Kumar Nepal.

The decision taken by the standing committee of UCPN (Maoist), the largest party in parliament, on Friday evening is a fresh attempt to lead the government after a gap of 10 months.

“We would attempt to remove this government both inside parliament and on streets. A no-confidence motion may also be moved,” said Dinanath Sharma, UCPN (M) spokesperson.

The meeting also decided that since UCPN (M) is the largest party, leadership of the high level political mechanism should be given to the party after death of Nepali Congress president GP Koirala.

In a report on the present political situation, party president Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ stated that regressive forces have become active to derail the peace and constitution drafting processes after Koirala’s death.
