DAMAK, Nov. 7 (PR) - Bhutan Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist-Maoist), waging armed struggle in the Druk kingdom for the repatriation of Bhutanese refugees, has demanded Nepal government to stop third country refugee resettlement program by the end of this year. The party has also warned of launching agitation from within the refugee camps of Nepal if third country resettlement program is not scrapped as demanded. Addressing a program held clandestinely to mark the party's eigth anniversary in Jhapa on Friday, the party's military commission representative for Nepal Nirmal said the Maoist led government ignored the party's repeated calls to put an end to the third country resettlement program. "The party will begin struggle from the refugee camps if the resettlement program is not scrapped by January 2009," warned Nirmal.
