KATHMANDU: The CPN-M has submitted its 70-point charter of demands to the Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai on Monday .
Most of the demands resemble the 40-point demand submitted by Dr Baburam Bhattarai to the then Sher Bahadur Deuba-led government just before the decade long Maoist insurgency.
CPN-M was constituted following a break-away with the UCPN-M, of which Dr Bhattarai is the vice-chairman.
Before submitting 70-point charter of demands to PM in Singh Durbar after 1pm, CPN-M organised a street rally from Shantibatika in Ratnapark at 11 am.
A squad led by C P Gajurel handed over the 70-point demands to PM Bhattarai as per the decision taken by the central committee of the party.
Some of the demands forwarded by CPN-M include:
a.To make an alliance with pro-republicans, pro federalists, leftists and nationalist forces.
b.scrapping of BIPPA(Bilateral Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement) between India and Nepal
c.ending corruption in all sectors of society
d.ban on Indian number plate vehicles in Nepal, among others.
For CPN-M, the leaders of the three major political parties are responsible for the present political chaos and legal hurdles in the wake of the demise of the Constituent Assembly(CA).
CPN-M leaders said they would take to the street with the same 70-point demands.
CPN-M has said that it will organise protest programmes in Butwal on Spetember 26, in Janakpur on September 30, in Pokhara on October 1, in Kathmandu on October 20, in Kanchanpur on October 16, in Surkhet on October 18.
