Kathmandu, Nov. 24: Nepali Congress (NC) has warned the CPN-UML to stop the incidents of physical attacks on NC activists in view of the parliamentary and provincial elections.
Issuing a press release today, the Nepali Congress has vehemently condemned the incidents of physical attacks by UML cadres in a way to finish off NC activists in Bajura and Dhading on verge of first round of parliamentary and provincial elections.
"The incident has openly breached the citizens' fundamental right to peacefully participate and organize election publicity campaign and also made the mockery of democratic culture", stated the press release issued by NC chief secretary Krishna Prasad Poudel.
The NC has warned the side concerned to not continue such incidents in future, reads the release.
In an armed attack launched by a group of 40 CPN-UML cadres at Budhiganga municipality-1 on Thursday, NC local cadres including Krishna Bahadur Thapa, Amma Thapa, Lalit Thapa, Gopal Thapa, Gore Sanai and Lal Nepali were injured and the whereabouts of three cadres, Dambar Thapa, Ramesh Nepali and Kisan Nepali is still unknown.
The injured are undergoing treatment at the Bajura District Health Office. UML cadres had looted mobile, dairy and cash from injured Krishna Thapa and injured ward chairperson Rajesh Bahadur Singh by attacking from the back, NC accused.
Likewise, a group of nine UML cadres including its ward chief had attacked and injured Dhuwankot rural municipality of Dhading Santosh Bastakoti with sharp-edged weapon at 6.00 this morning while he was asleep, stated the NC release.
He is said to be in critical condition and was air lifted to Kathmandu for treatment.
Alleging that the UML has been repeatedly carrying out violent activities against NC leaders and cadres in a way to finish democracy, the NC said it indicated UML's fear psychology with the increasing public support to NC in the coming elections.
NC has demanded the government search for the guilty and bring them to book and arrange necessary treatment to those injured in the incidents. RSS
