Nepalese PM directs Maoists to return seized property
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Kathmandu, Sep 14: Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai today directed his party men and government agencies to take immediate measures to return the private and public property seized by the Maoists during the decade-long insurgency.
Talking to reporters at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) Bhattarai's political adviser Devendra Poudyal said that the "Prime Minister's Office has issued written directives to the District Administration Offices and the party's different bodies and sister organisations to immediately initiate the process of returning the property including land and buildings to their rightful owners."
Returning the seized property was one of the major demands put forward by the major political parties including the Nepali Congress and CPN-UML before the Maoists could get the support of political parties to form a government under their leadership.
The Nepali civil war was a conflict between government forces and Maoist rebels which lasted from 1996 until 2006.
The Maoist party has also time and again expressed the commitment to return the seized property before they formed the government.
Poudyal said that the "Prime Minister's Office will form a mechanism at the central and district levels to monitor the return of the seized property" and solve the problems that may arise in the process.
However, reacting to this main opposition party Nepali Congress has asked the Maoists to translate their words into action, saying that their "words are not enough".
