Saptahik Janadesh, 18 September
"At a time when the country is looking for a peaceful way out of this present mess, Deuba's government is not following its own laws and constitution. The government is becoming autocratic, dictatorial. Our team that took part in the second round of dialogue had stated clearly that our party was open to the idea of scrapping the 21 September meet, if this would in any way help to make the dialogue a success. Despite this, Deuba's government has proved that it is fascist, anti-national and autocratic. In the hope that a peaceful political solution would be found, those in favour of an interim government, a constituent assembly and a republic came forward, but Deuba's government let loose the Royal Nepal Army on these people. This fascist autocratic government sent the army against the people using the international scenario as an excuse. This is a stupid move. We also request the government to scrap the many laws and regulations used to suppress the people. If the government does not change its ways, dialogue won't move forward.
"Our party requests all Left forces to oppose such autocratic behaviour on the part of the government. We also request our people's forces to take whatever action is necessary to protect themselves in such an environment. We also announce that the 21 September meeting has been postponed, all meetings will be held on a regional basis now. We request all people and parties to protest such autocratic behaviour which worsens the situation and impedes the dialogue."
