Kathmandu, March 5
The government and a splinter political group named Nepal Communist Party led by Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’ have signed a three-point agreement amid a public function in Kathmandu on Friday, giving an end to the violent activities of the party for the past few years.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, and the party’s chief, Biplav, were present at the function. Both of the leaders also addressed the audience, expressing commitment to the deal.
Biplav had formed the party after breaking the ties with Mohan Baidya, a veteran Maoist leader, in November 2014. Then, it had resorted to violence such as extortion, abduction, explosion, and murder in the name of the protest of the state.
However, of late, the party had expressed its interest in dialogues to raise its concerns. Accordingly, the formal talks had begun on Wednesday. The deal was made on Thursday after three rounds of meetings over two days.
Here are three points of the deal:
- Both sides to solve all political problems through talks and dialogues
- The splinter party to carry out its political activities peacefully
- The government to lift the ban, release arrested leaders and cadres, and revoke cases filed against them
