Maoists dismiss Indian media reports; say Ramdev’s camp should run smoothly

Kantipur Report

KATHMANDU, Sept 22 – The CPN-Maoist Saturday dismissed as “unfounded” some Indian media reports, which alleged that the Maoists were behind the disruption of Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev’s camp, which was due to start at Tundikhel in Kathmandu from Saturday morning.

“We believe that the camp should run smoothly. And, we request everyone to be assured of our belief,” Maoist spokesperson Krishna Bahadur Mahara said in a press statement issued Saturday.

One of the leading Indian news channels, Aaj Tak, this morning broadcasted a report citing unknown sources that Swami Ramdev was in danger due to the Maoist threat in Nepal.

“Such baseless, misleading propaganda is a conspiracy of the regressive forces against the people’s desire for republic and peace,” Mahara said of media reports.

Thousands of followers of Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev had to make a sad return after they received a last-minute confirmation that the Yoga Camp scheduled to begin from 5am this morning was postponed for Sunday morning.

According to the police administration, today’s Yoga Camp had to be cancelled owing to some security reasons.

In his statement, Mahara added, “We request the common people and the camp organizers not to be misled by such unfounded news-reports.”

“What we want to make it clear is that the Government of Nepal has itself stopped the camp under different pretexts while the talks on the camp were held last night with the concerned sides,” he added.

The Maoists have also taken an exception to some Indian media reports on Kapilvastu violence.

“Some Indian media have linked us to Kapilvastu incident. We consider this too as a part of the conspiracy to defame our party,” he added.

“We appeal the ordinary Nepali people who are in favour of the federal democratic republic and peace to defeat all conspiracies of the regressive elements to move ahead with care and determination,” the statement added.
