The Maoists are angry with 'big media houses'. They have said the Nepali press is only reporting news that shows the Young Communist League in a negative light. By raising their voice against the free media, the Maoists are not looking analytically at the situation, but are being swayed by emotion and anger. It can be surmised that the only reason they are reacting in this manner is because they are trying to justify the violent activities of the YCL.
The YCL began threatening and attacking the representatives of other parties before the ink of the seven parties' agreement was even dry, and they have injured many rival candidates. Those who believed that the elections could not be conducted in a free and fair manner because of the YCL have been proved right. These attacks are going to backfire on the Maoists because they will reduce the number of votes they will get. They say the way in which the Nepali press portrays the YCL is not correct. If they want to prove us wrong, they need to stop these activities immediately. Not only do they have to give clear orders to their party workers to stop violence, but also take action against those who do not listen to party orders. It would be a brave and commendable act by the party's centre if they can take such a decision to stop the ongoing atrocities.
