Govt, unverified fighters cut deal

KATHMANDU, DEC 11 -

The agitating unverified former Maoist combatants withdrew their protest programme declared last week following a 10-point agreement with the government on Tuesday.

The deal signed by Peace Minister Top Bahadur Rayamajhi and representatives of the Discharged Peoples’ Liberation Army commits to reaching a decision on providing cash package after the Supreme Court delivers its verdict on the case. On November 6, the apex court stayed the government’s move to provide Rs 200,000 to each of the unverified combatants. The agreement pledges initiatives for cash package such as the one provided to over 16,500 retired combatants or unverified combatants. It also vows to issue identity cards to the discharged fighters, payment for medical costs of those with disabilities and injuries, and release of the arrested cadres.
