Hetauda, Aug. 15 – Minister for Land Reform and Management, Dambar Bahadur Shrestha said the UCPN-Maoists and monarchists were merging soon.

Distributing land ownership certificates to the landless people at Hatiya here today, Minister Shrestha said this reasoning that Maoists were hobnobbing with the monarchists.

He accused the Maoists of being inactive and helpless as the government till date was not formed though they claimed to form national consensus government within 24 hours of Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal’s resignation.

As the governments led by the Maoist and CPN-UML were already failures, alternative to this should be sought, he stressed.

Some sections of higher rank in the society are taking advantage in the name of landless people, he said, claiming that real landless people would get lands in his tenure.

As many as 62 landless people were provided land ownership certificates at the programme organized by Makwanpur Chapter of Landless Dwellers’ Problems Solution Commission.
