Butwal: At a time when there is widespread interest, criticism, debate, and analysis on the government's latest move, intellectuals say the 11-point agreement reached with CK Raut is a treasonous decision and a ban on Biplab-led CPN is a hasty decision and a ban on the entire nation. Speaking in an interaction held at the office of Reporters Club Province 5 in Butwal, the intellectuals urged the government to be restrained and mature, saying that the government had provoked the CPN and spread terror and conflict in the country.

They said that both the recent decisions of the two-thirds majority government will be registered as a serious mistake of the state in Nepal's politics. Speaking on the occasion, former lawmaker Binod Pahadi said that the international community was using Nepal for the political playing field and added that it was not a coincidence that an agreement was reached with CK Raut while banning the rebel Communist Party of Nepal. He said, "This is not just a ban on the CPN, it is a ban on the entire nation and it will help India." He said that work is being done in Nepal with the mentality of introducing a multinational army in Nepal and maintaining it as an unstable nation. He claimed that the 11-point agreement would lead to continuous raise of character like Raut in Madhes and claimed that the country would go into conflict if the non-political agreement was not broken and the ban imposed on the CPN was not lifted immediately. Prof. Dr. Buddha Bahadur Thapa, Central General Secretary of the Conflict Analyst and Professors' Association said that both the decisions are taken by the government were immature and short-sighted. He said that people across the country should be aware of CK Raut's emergence as a new issue. He said, "The government should not have made the decision hastily. The agreement has automatically shielded many problems in the country." He said that while reaching consensus on serious issues of national importance, discussions should be held with political parties, experts and intellectuals. Thapa told the government should create an environment for peaceful talks with rebel CPN. The government hastened about the decision made on Biplab led CPN. The decision made is apolitical, immature, short-sighted, and the government should correct it immediately. Political analyst Dil Sahni said that the government had already banned the rebel CPN and that it had banned the CPN from diverting its agreement with CK Raut. Stating that the government has made a suicidal decision, Sahni said that peaceful activities should not be stopped. He said, "CK Raut, who is brought from the United States by some force.

There is an intention to declare a separate Madhes country and the intent of west politics in the country. The issue of free Madhes is not in favor of Madhesis itself and it is not in favor of the entire Nepali people, the government should give a written explanation." Hari Lamsal, regional president of Nepali Congress Constituency No. 2, claimed that the two-thirds government had exercised totalitarianism. Stating that it was a serious matter to make a decision that would have a far-reaching impact on the state. Lamsal remarked that CK Raut was an agent by the US to cause instability in Nepal. He said, "The government should have rather banned CK Raut, not Biplab. Welcoming CK Raut and banning Biplab is completely contrary and wrong." He said, "It is right for the government to bring one side to an agreement, but the government has failed while reaching an agreement with the Independent Madhes Organization." President of the Rupendehi Trade Association Padam Prasad Shrestha said that the imposition of the ban on the CPN was in a hurry and the ban should be reconsidered. He demanded that the government should come out with a clear view of the agreement reached with the separatists.
