PRACHANDA IN SEARCH OF CAPITALIST FEDERAL MODEL
The Maoists supreme commander, Prachanda meeting the press before departing for his maiden trip abroad has said that Switzerland’s “Capitalist Federalism” could be a role model for Nepal.
He added, “Switzerland is a capitalist country and its federal structure could be implemented in Nepal”.
Our team will make a study while being there on which “federal state” model could suit Nepal’s environment, he continued.
He met the journalists at the VVIP lounge of the TIA before heading for Switzerland to attend a Socialist International Conference in Geneva, reports say.
Prachanda who looked more than happy to take the air-route towards Geneva said, this was his maiden trip to Europe.
Unsubstantiated reports said that he had a chat with the visiting Indian scholar S.D. Muni prior to his departure to Geneva. July 1, 2007
