The latest rascality of the Maoist youth wing proves that the Maoists are afraid of participating in the free and fair CA elections.
The Dolakha incident: In a display of outright hooliganism, the Maoist-affiliated Young Communist League cadres beat up Chief District Officer (CDO) Uddhav Bahadur Thapa after barging into the District Administration Office (DAO) in Charikot on Sunday (29 July). The administration imposed a 5:30 pm to 5 am curfew in the district headquarters. CDO Thapa has been injured on his right eye. After YCL cadres began punching Thapa indiscriminately, Maoist district in-charge ‘Bishwa’ and another district committee member intervened and stopped YCL cadres. Over two dozen Maoist cadres and six policemen were injured as the two sides engaged in clashes when police tried to prevent the unruly mob from breaking into the office. They hurled brickbats and stones at the DAO smashing most of the windowpanes. Police fired over a dozen rounds into the air and dozens of tear gas shells to disperse the angry mob of YCL cadres, who had showed up at the DAO demanding the release of their local leader Bishal Khadka. Before their violent act at the DAO, the berserk group had taken out a motorcycle rally here.
Meanwhile, CDO Thapa informed that three persons with iron rods and khukuris were arrested from Kharidhunga, Dolakha. They were returning in a micro bus registered as Ba 1 Ja 9505 after the vandalism at the DAO. He also said police arrested five persons with seven motorcycles in Kavre and seven persons in Charikot in connection with the incident. Reports said Maoist district committee member Kiran had brought the micro bus and 25 motorcyclists from Kathmandu.
Why police filed case against Khadka?
On July 22, a group of YCL cadres had blackened the face of one Sundar Prakash Khadka, accusing him of being actively involved in suppressing Janaandolan-II at Satdobato Chowk. Khadka, a local leader of Rastriya Prajatantra Party, was nominated president of District Development Committee by the king’s regime. This happened in the presence of Maoist Bishal Khadka. They had later taken Sundar Prakash around the square and even forced him to get into a bus bound for Kathmandu saying he would not be allowed to stay in the district. However, he was later brought back to the District Police Office. A few days ago, acting upon a complaint, police had filed a case against Bishal Khadka under Public Offence Act. The Maoists, claiming that the case was “false” and thus “regressive”, warned of strong agitation if the administration failed to withdraw it immediately. (more here)
