Kathmandu, December 4
In response to the recent arrest warrants issued against them, the Communist Party of Nepal led by Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ on Tuesday has announced a three-day protest programme, denouncing the government’s actions as illegal and uncivilised.
The District Court Kathmandu on Monday issued a public notice, asking Nepal Communist Party’s general secretary Netra Bikram Chand (Biplav) and other leaders to appear before the court.
Chand along with party Spokesperson Khadga Bahadur Bishwakarma (Prakanda), All Nepal Peasants’ Federation revolutionary Chair Raju Karki and Maila Tamang have been facing charges of an offence against the State in the court for the past four years.
The case was filed against them on December 26, 2019, accusing them of jeopardising the relations among federal units and various castes and communities, thereby committing an offence against the State. The court issued the notice after the police reported to the court that they were absconding.
In the statement issued under the signature of Biplav, it mentioned that the order of the arrest warrant is a direct violation of the three-point agreement made with the government on March 5, 2021, and also an attack on the initiative being taken to resolve the country’s problems peacefully.
The CPN has announced that it will hold a torch rally on December 5, burn the effigy of the judge on December 6, and hold a nationwide public demonstration on December 7.
