Attack on Radio Mirmire : 89.4 MHz
Mirmire means The Dawn
During the people's war we had 5 Radio transmission center from east to west. The first Radio transmission was established in the main base are- the libreted area Rolpa. It was named as People's Radio- 'Radio People's Republic'. Radio Mirmire was the continuation of Radio People's Republic.
Some party activists and journalists loyal to Prachand faction have looted Radio Transmitter and computers from Radio Mirmire Station, based in Anamnagar, Kathmandu.This was the Radio run by Newa State Committee-UCPN(Maoist). Most of the journalists and staffs of this Radio are the supporter of National integration and people's revolution, who had joined the ten years People's War.
Staffs of Radio Mirmire told that a group of activists led by staff Bishnu Prasad Sapkota barged into the station office at Anamnagar at around 11:30 pm and took away the computers and the transmitter.
Bishnu Sapkota, who was a cultural activists during the people's war now named as a gang leader of stealing the Radio equipments. What a matter of shame! He is the nephew of Agni Prasad Sapkota PBM of UCPN (Maoist), one of the main leaders of Prachanda camp, who supports Prachanda blindly.
The Next Front denounces this type of criminal activities and demand immediate return of Radio transmitter and other equipments. Radio Mirmire is the people's voice and no can stop the voice of the people. As soon as its broadcast must be resumed.
