Maoists will take up arms, says CPN-Maoist-Baidya Chairman Mohan Baidya: The Mohan Baidya led Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN-Maoist-Baidya) on January 16 warned that the party will take up arms if the state power cannot assure the rights of the people. Speaking at a press meet following the conclusion of the party's seventh general convention, he said, "Give rights to the people. It the people get their rights, who will take up arms? Nobody. Why is the state conspiring instead of assuring people their rights in accordance with previous agreements and assurances? If rights are not given to people, it is sure that arms will be taken up." He further said, "We will launch the people's revolt or people´s war as and when circumstances compel us because no one takes up arms just on the basis of the whim or interests of certain leaders. Arms will be taken up by any other force also when the situation so demands, even if we ourselves drop the idea." Republica, January 17, 2013.
