As the date of constitution promulgation -- January 22 -- is nearing in, Mohan Baidya led CPN-Maoist has announced protest programme aiming the date.
The national conference of the party held from December 26-29 has decided to stage protests, including a mass-agitation, from January 8-22.
A statement issued after the conference states the protest-programme includes the party's decision to burn the new constitution on January 23 if the government issues it on January 22.

The national-conference has also demanded that the party cadres arrested during the second Constituent Assembly election must be cleared of the charges faced by them.
