KATHMANDU: The CPN-Maoist would resort to the Nepal Army (NA) in a bid to stop the Constituent Assembly election on November 19, the party's Vice Chairman CP Gajurel said.
The Maoist leader argued that the CA election should be stopped as it would invite further crisis in the country.
The country would again be pushed towards conflict if the government and the four major political parties held the elections unilaterally, Gajurel said, adding, “Our party will hold talks with Nepal Army Chief Gaurav Shumsher Rana in order to prevent the latent conflict.”
He was speaking at an interaction organised here in the Reporters’ Club on Friday.
Mentioning that the preparations are underway to hold the November 19 polls mobilising the army, Gajurel said the CPN-Maoist would ask the Army Chief whether the army wanted to drag the country into conflict.
He further warned of conflict if the election was held forcefully without his party's consent.
He, however, expressed his confidence that his party would decide whether to boycotting the CA election in the Central Committee meeting that would be held in Lumle of Kaski from tomorrow.
The party's CC meeting was earlier put off on 19 to June 29.
On a different note, he ruled out the possibility of his party's unification with the UCPN-Maoist.
However, he said that efforts are being made for the unification of four communist parties Matrika Yadav-led CPN (Maoist).
