Terrorists Bombed A Public Vehicle In Nepal

Terrorists Bombed a Public Vehicle in Nepal

Terrorists on Sunday evening bombed a public bus and killed one person in the Bara district of Nepal. A group called JTMM that has specialized in murdering innocent citizens, looting, robbing and kidnapping people, has been reported to be behind the bomb blast. Its leader Jwalasingh lives in India and carries out attacks against the people of Nepali origin with the help of Indian professional killers and Nepal's local criminals.

Many armed criminal groups have mushroomed up in the Terai region of Nepal after the restoration of the House of Representatives, a move against the people's historic April uprising in 2006. Millions of Nepalis took out to the streets continuously for 19 days defying the royal curfew in April 2006 demanding for the immediate declaration of republic. But the mainstream status-quoist parties of Nepal did make a secret compromise with the feudal king for the preservation of monarchy as well as for the revival of their own corrupt politics. The Nepalis, on the contrary, desire overall transformation of their society.

The Nepal government has promised to hold the Constituent Assembly polls in November while one of its coalition partner the Maoist party has demanded the removal of monarchy first as it claims it would be corresponding with the people's actual street version of the April uprising.
