I really dislike the Maoist. They espouse violence in their effort to get reform (13,000 died). Tourism and jobs have been badly injured. They lie ("the US does not want the elections" even this even though the US has given 10 million to finance them).
That said, they have a voice. It seems that not a day goes by without a rally where they spread their crap. The polls say they are not popular. The popular parties are quiet. I wonder why?
