UCPN (Maoist) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has warned of running a parallel government at the center if the ruling parties move ahead with the process of bringing a majority-based constitution.
Addressing a program organized to announce a joint youth volunteer force on Thursday, Dahal said he would ask the United Nations and the international community as to which government is a legitimate one after forming a parallel government at the center. “We will ask them which government is legitimate - the one that is in favor of the peace process or the one that derailed,” said Dahal.
Accusing the ruling Nepali Congress and CPN-UML of going against the spirit of past accords and the peace process, Dahal claimed that his party would set up a force of one million youth volunteers after February 28.
Dahal, who leads the 30-party agitating alliance, also warned of taking over government offices across the country and imposing economic blockade during the second phase of their protest.
“If the ruling parties do not abide by past accords, people have the right to form their own government. We will run parallel government both at the centre and the provinces,” said Dahal.
Recalling that his party had run parallel governments in the past and that it was dissolved under UN observation, Dahal maintained that international community may be asked to legitimize their parallel governments once again.
