KATHMANDU: Nepal Communist Party (NCP) led led by Netra Bikram Chand alias Biplav has claimed that it does not have any weapons to hand over to the government as the party had not launched any armed struggle against it.

Answering the query about what has the outfit done with the weapons it meant to use against the government, Dharmendra Bastola, one of the members of the talks team formed for the dialogue with claimed that the party did not have any weapons as they had not launched any armed uprising.

After the government- Biplav peace agreement signed on Friday, main opposition Nepali Congress had raised its concern over indifference towards the management of the weapons formerly used by Biplav outfit.

Outfit leader Bastola denied the accusation of surrender laid against the party by some of its former alliance and clarified that the party has just decided to come to public politics, but it will continue raising awareness about its agenda.

He said his party has many reservations with the current political system and the policies and programs of the government.

“More than the parliamentary system, we value democracy and we have decided to go public with our sets of ideas which we believe cannot be denied by any progressive forces,” Bastola said, “One point is clear that incumbent political system cannot bring substantive changes in the life of the people.”

He further added that the party had not gone underground to launch an armed struggle, rather it was forced to operate covertly due to the government ban on the party’s political activities.
