KATHMANDU, Jan 25: CPN (Maoist Center) leader Barshaman Pun has said that his claim for the post of party General Secretary is natural. 

Talking to reporters at the Tribhuvan International Airport upon return home after receiving medical treatment in China, Pun said that it was natural for him to stake claim for the post of General Secretary as he had already served as the party’s Secretary.

Leader Pun said, “If there is no consensus, let there be a process. I want to face it. I also told this to the party Chairman and leaders when I was out of the country. I believe the party will take a decision through consensus.”

Replying to a question, Leader Pun said that despite the differences in the ideological landscape and beliefs of the current ruling coalition, there is a consensus to defend democracy and the achievements of change. Former Energy Minister Pun said, “The main opposition party CPN-UML has been obstructing the democratic process for a long time. Let it reconsider itself as a responsible political party and stop obstructing the democratic process.”

Leader Pun said that he was completely healthy and thanked all those who extended best wishes for his recovery.
