The Unified CPN (Maoist) on Friday gave 9-day ultimatum to the government to address the demands raised by the party regarding the President's move.

A meeting of the Maoist standing committee held at the party headquarters Paris Danda gave November 1 deadline to the government to come up with an understanding on issues raised by the party vis-à-vis the President's move against the erstwhile government's decision to sack the then army chief Rookmangud Katawal.

According to Maoist spokesperson Dina Nath Sharma, the standing committee also decided to launch a strong protest movement if the ongoing dialogue with the ruling parties proved futile in restoring civilian supremacy and rectifying the President's 'unconstitutional' move.

The protest programmes will include picketing of government offices, dharna (sit-in) and non-cooperation with government programmes, Sharma informed.

Sharma added that the party was ready to end the obstruction in the parliament within a minute if the main ruling parties agreed for a parliamentary debate on the President's move.

"The ruling parties will be blamed if the budget is not passed as they have not created an environment to end the deadlock," he argued.
