The government needs to give out another Rs 440 million, but wants to wait until the Maoists return private property seized from citizens . The reluctance also stems from the popular sentiment that is running high against the Maoists' lack of transparency about their expenditure of the one billion rupees already given to them for the management of their army and cantonments.
The horrible state of the cantonments housing the fighters, the increasing pressure to return property, and the strain on the peace process due to these factors puts the Maoist leadership is a tight spot. Unless it reins in the YCL and control its actions, assists in the process of holding elections to the constituent assembly, and returns captured property, the atmosphere around the country will remain negative.
There is no official record of whose property the Maoists have confiscated during their 10 year-long, and the value of all the seized property, but the Nepali Congress central office has records of 129 politicians and party activists who have had property taken away from them. On the list are:
general secretary Kul Bahadur Gurung (Ilam),
party leader Khum Bahadur Khadka (Dang), and
central party members Binay Dhoj Chand (Bardiya),
Maheswor Prasad Singh (Dhanusa-Mahottari),
Gopal Raj Pahadi (Sankhuwasabha),
Surendra Prasad Chaudhari (Parsa),
Purshottam Basnet (Solukhumbu),
Diwakar Gautam (Pyuthan),
Ananda Prasad Dhungana (Dhanusa).
