After Maoist insurgents broke a 4-month ceasefire with a series of violent attacks in November 2001, King Gyanendra, acting on the advice of the Cabinet of Ministers, declared a nationwide state of emergency which remained in effect until it expired on August 28.
In districts where Maoists have gained effective control, the insurgents have set up "people's courts." Although these courts generally decide civil cases, in 2001 eight policemen who surrendered in Dailekh were reportedly found guilty of crimes against the people by a hastily constituted "people's court" and summarily were executed.
Maoist commanders in certain areas also reportedly blockaded food and medical supplies and impeded the delivery of health care services by interdicting travel by health workers and by confiscating supplies.

They project their armed struggle as a three-phased one---initially against the Police, which they claim to have already won; in the second stage, against the Royal Nepal Army, which is currently going on and which, they admit, is nowhere near victory; and, in the third and final phase, against the Indian Army.
But, the Maoists have strong bases of ideological support in the tribal belt of India right across the land due to the years of economic and social injustice and sheer servitude to which the tribals have been subjected by feudal landlords and the so-called upper caste Hindus.
Instead of coming together in order to resist the advances of the Maoists on the one side and the steady encroachment of the King on democracy on the other, they kept indulging in what the French call “la politique politicienne”, the politics of politicians and not of statesmen.

Arrayed against the Maoists are Nepal’s political parties, the intelligentsia, kingship, the police, the media – and the army at the latest instance – all of whom have watched this national disintegration with singular selfishness.
The Maoist attempt to drive a wedge between the new king and the masses did not prove effectual, and the massacres of policemen as the representatives of the state continued.
In addition, the Maoists are innovative, building their own arsenals as well as developing indigenous weaponry in the form of ‘pipe bombs’ as landmines, ‘socket bombs’ as grenades, ‘pressure-cooker bombs’ for death-dealing force, as well as low-pressure ‘banner bombs’ and Molotov cocktails for psychological impact.
