People from all walks of life take part in various victory rallies organized throughout the country. The best thing about these victory rallies was the impressive Maoist participation. Prachanda had given them so much luring slogans that some fear if he will be able to keep all his cadres under his leadership and bring all of them in the mainstream politics. No one wants Maoists to be split and one group continuing the fighting. In today’s rallies, Maoist cadres were the most jubilant and the party led several rallies and mass meetings in various places.
[Meanwhile the UN has suggested the Maoist leadership to establish cantonment in places with access to road. Ian Martin, the UN envoy for Nepal peace process, told this in a meeting with Dr Baburam Bhattarai, Ram Bahadur Thapa (Badal) and four deputy commanders. Martin also told the Maoist leaders that the distance between army barracks and Maoist cantonment must not be in the distance that could be covered by the arms of both sides.]
