Maoist trying to invite another conflict: Bhandari

Defence Minister Bidhya Devi Bhandari has accused the Unified CPN (Maoist) of trying to push the country into another.

Inaugurating Tamang Film Festival 2067 in Hetauda today, she made this remark.

The Maoist party is shying away from integration of its army combatants and management of weapons, she said.

In another context, she said culture, lifestyle and religion of the Tamang community, one of the backward class in the country, should be promoted.

The government has brought a special programme in its budget for the upliftment of several backward classes, she said.

On the occasion, she released a cassette which is a collection of songs in Tamang language.

Three films of Tamang languages will be shown in two-day Mahotsav, said Chairman of Tamang Film Association Alen Lama.
