Kathmandu, May 27
Minister for Home Affairs Ram Bahadur Thapa has reiterated that the government is committed to bringing the Maoist outfit led by Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ into the mainstream politics.
Though the government has banned activities of the group citing they promoted terrorism, Thapa says it will facilitate the group’s journey to the mainstream.
The Minister’s statement comes a day after the party allegedly planted explosives in different places of the capital. At least four persons died in the incidents.
Informing the Federal Parliament about the Sunday incidents on Monday morning, Thapa said the government would control such activities soon.
“The government has initiated a process to control such activities and bring the group to the mainstream through talks,” he said, “The state is committed to these works.”
He claimed those killed in the explosions yesterday were not common people, but members of the banned outfit.
