As per an internal committee formed by the Unified Maoists to investigate presumed election wrongdoings, the party has concluded that the election was rigged in an institutionalized manner and the investigation further reveals that the election commission and security agencies were directly involved in the vote fraud. Now the fun will perhaps begin. The committee led by party leader Barsaman Pun ‘Ananta’ in his findings claims, “The vote fraud was carried out institutionally and at the policy and organizational level.” The committee member Ram Chandra Jha said, “The investigation has revealed that including the Election commission, the security agencies were also involved.”
“Originally, the Nepal Army was deployed as the third layer of security during the election and their main task was to help Nepal Police and Armed Police Force. Instead, we have found out that they were the one who were carrying the ballot boxes after voting was completed. The Army did not allow the party representatives to accompany the ballot boxes. They took unusually long time to bring the ballot boxes to the voting stations. We have come to this conclusion after receiving reports from more than 50% of polling stations from across the country”, said Jha.
