OCTOBER 15, 2008 Former Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala publicly reiterated his pledge to democracy, human rights, freedom of press and individual liberty at a time when the ruling party CPN (Maoist) has been giving confusing remarks over the political system in the recent days.
Ex-premier Korala made this statement in his brief interaction with the media at a tea reception hosted by the Nepali Congress (NC) at its party office at Sanepa, Lalitpur on October 14.
It is noteworthy to mention here that top-brass leaders of CPN (Maoist) has in the recent days advocated for the establishment of People's Republic based on communist model, which is obsolete and has no room for freedom, democracy and liberty.
