Kathmandu, February 13
The ruling Nepal Communist Party and its sister organisations on Thursday celebrated the 25th ‘People’s War Day’, the 25th anniversary of the commencement of the armed struggle against the state by the then CPN-Maoist.
The party organised a special function at its headquarters in Dhumbarahi of Kathmandu to commemorate the war. One of the two chairmen of the party, Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and senior leader Madhav Kumar Nepal, however, did not show up at the function.
Oli had ‘boycotted’ the programme last year also.
Speaking the function, another chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal said the then Maoist party, under his leadership, would have lost its identity if the peace process had not begun in 2006, ending the decade-long war.
Dahal also said those who were trying to copy the civil war now would not be successful.
