No relevance to carry out violence in name of revolution: PM


Kathmandu: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today said there was no relevance to pursue the path of violence in the name of revolution at a time when the country is pursuing prosperity. 

"The country is now pursuing prosperity alongside social justice after establishing republic through political movements. Imposing authoritarianism and dreams of seizing power through violence can never be achieved," he said. He was referring to the now banned Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) led by Netra Bikram Chand. PM Oli, also chairperson of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP), was inaugurating the first meeting of the party's state-3 committee. 

"One on an extortion spree at gunpoint in the name of revolution can never build a country. The government will book those engaging in illegal activities under the veil of a communist. The NCP is also clear on this matter." He also defended the government banning the CPN, but criticised voices of opposition parties and others who are against it. 

In another context, he admitted to the delay in concluding the party unification at local level, adding that the process would be over soon. He also came down heavily on the tendency going on inside the party about groupism and the matter of indiscipline. 

On the occasion, Chairperson Oli administered oath of office to 217 party state committee members. The event was also attended by party secretariat member Ram Bahadur Thapa, general secretary Bishnu Poudel, state in-charge Ashta Laxmi Shakya and joint in-charge Hit Bahadur Tamang. RSS
