KATHMANDU: General Secretary of Nepal Communist Party (NCP) Netra Bikram Chand alias Biplav has started piling pressure on Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa for the release of the outfit’s cadres languishing in various prisons.
On the second day after Biplav made himself public in Kathmandu, the NCP leader reached at the Home Minister Thapa’s residence seeking the release of his party cadres doing time under various criminal allegations.
According to Home Minister Thapa’s secretariat, Biplav and Minister Thapa discussed the latest agreement reached between the government and the Biplav outfit including the future political course.
Home Minister Thapa assured Biplav that he would release his cadres and withdraw the cases filed against them at the earliest.
General Secretary Biplav had made himself public in Kathmandu on Friday almost two years after the government put a ban on the outfit.
Biplav’s party source has been claiming that more than 2,000 cadres are still languishing in many prisons under various ‘false’ allegations.
