CPA, 12-pt pact have been scrapped: Baidya

KATHMANDU, DEC 16 - CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidya has declared that the 12-point agreement and Comprehensive Peace Agreement that brought the former Maoist rebel to the mainstream have been scrapped.

Making public the decisions made by the party's Central Committee meeting at a press conference on Monday, Baidya stressed on the need to forge new consensus. The CPN-Maoist CC meet lasted for a week.

Meanwhile, Baidya has owned up the responsibility for explosions that occurred in various places across the nation ahead of the Constituent Assembly elections. He stressed on the need to seek political solution through an all-party roundtable.

The former rebel Maoists agreed to join the mainstream politics after signing CPA that was signed a year after signing the 12-point pact signed in New Delhi between the then Seven-Party Alliance and the UCPN (Maoist).

"The party cadres detonated bombs realising it was necessary for the people," he said.

Baidya further said there is a possibility of working alliance with Pushpa Kamal Dahal led UCPN (Maoist) if the latter come to the streets.

"If they [UCPN (Maoist)] come to the streets, there can be a working alliance," he said, "The victorious CA members of UCPN (Maoist) must resign and the names for the PR system should not be presented."
