Prachanda: India behind conspiracy

Prachanda, who quit as premier after a dispute with President Ram Baran Yadav over the issue of sacking of army chief, said the present CPN-UML-led government is “just a puppet” and efforts are on to “murder the infant republic”.
“After Madhav Kumar Nepal became the prime minister, a conspiracy is being hatched with the help of foreign powers to restore monarchy,” Prachanda told a workers’ gathering in Lalitpur on Friday, when Nepal observed its first republic day.
The country abolished its 240-year-old monarchy on May 29 last year, dislodging King Gyanendra from power.
While resigning as prime minister earlier this month, Prachanda had indirectly accused India of interfering in Nepal’s internal affairs.
