In the wake of fresh attempts by some Maoists to obstruct restoration of displaced police posts, rebel leader Prachanda has asked his party cadres to halt all activities relating to their parallel 'government' and 'courts' and help create a conducive atmosphere for polls.
The Maoist leader had on Thursday announced the dissolution of all "people's government" and "people's courts" operated by party cadres at district and village levels.
Prachanda's statement came after fresh attempts by some Maoist cadres to obstruct restoration of the displaced police posts in Sindhupalchowk district, in the east of Kathmandu.
Local Maoist cadres in Sindhupalchowk have been obstructing the restoration of the earlier displaced police posts in the area, police sources said.
With the promulgation of the interim constitution and formation of the Interim Legislature, the "people's government" and the "people's courts" are now dissolved as per the agreement reached on November 8, Prachanda said in the statement.
He also asked his cadres to help form interim coalition governments at the local level.
However, Prachanda warned against revoking the "right decision" taken by the people's government in the past.
He also urged cadres to help prepare for a peaceful political environment, saying the historic movement of promulgating the interim constitution and forming the interim legislature would be complete only after conducting constituent assembly polls to rewrite the Constitution.
