CPI (M) condemns `repression' in Nepal

NEW DELHI: The CPI (M) has condemned what it called the renewed `repression' by the King's regime in Nepal.

In a statement on Friday, on the eve of a mass rally called by the seven-party front for the restoration of democracy in Nepal, the CPI (M) Polit Bureau said: "There is no doubt whatsoever that the King will not allow any democratic political activities. The CPI (M) is confident that the people of Nepal will respond in a big way to the call for ending the autocratic regime."

It pointed to the arrest of leaders of various political parties and the house arrest of the general secretary of the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist), Madhav Kumar Nepal and president of the Nepali Congress, G. P. Koirala.
