CPI(M) state secretary Biman Bose told a press conference in Kolkata that he hopes the Maoists active in three districts of West Bengal to learn from the Nepal example and join the mainstream.
He said, "Maoists in Nepal have come to the democratic process and are working among the people. There will be a new interim government where they will participate. We appeal to Maoists operating in our state to follow the example set by those in Nepal and join the mainstream."
