UCPN (Maoist) chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal [Prachanda] on Saturday claimed that Nepal Army (NA) is in grip of Maoists and that it will abide by the party’s orders.
Speaking at a program organised by Maoist aligned Tamsaling Rastriya Mukti Morcha in the capital, Dahal claimed that the Maoists have taken complete control of the national army.
“The Nepal Army is in grip of Maoists,” Dahal said.
He also said that the Army supports his party because “it agrees with the Maoist agenda”. Dahal’s didn’t elaborate.
The Maoist strongman further added that if anyone thinks that they will keep Maoists in check with the help of Nepal Army, then they are just “daydreaming”.
Saying that the disbanded People’s Liberation Army of the Maoist party only submitted its old and obsolete weapons to the government, he said it would be wrong to think that the Maoists have been completely “disarmed”.
