party alliance has announced fresh protest programmes demanding annulment of the draft constitution.
A meeting of the alliance on Thursday agreed to hold a nationwide demonstration on August 21 (Thursday) against the draft that, according to them, has undermined the public aspirations expressed through various movements including the People’s War, People’s Movement-II and Madhes revolution.
The poll-opposing alliance has also agreed to collaborate with other “likeminded forces” to launch a unified movement against the constitution drafting process.
“CPN-M Chair Mohan Baidya, leader of the alliance, has been assigned to hold consultation with the likeminded forces. There could be collaboration with any forces seeking to repel the draft that is regressive and advocate status quo,” reads a statement issued by the alliance on Thursday. CPN-Maoist and its partners have been demanding formation of an all-party roundtable conference to sort out debated issues of the new constitution.
