Nepal-Highlights of the Common
Nationalist Agenda in the article was like suggesting the basic
salient features of the constitution of Nepal was to be drafted
within specified period, being delayed for the reason of there
political instability, caused due to mainly insincerity in the
political strategy of Maoists leadership.
Who could be behind the strategy?
The role of big powers including
may not be denied out rightly as a part of her policy to weaken the
neighbouring countries by scheming also the revolutionaries of
I did also express my views as
Will Prachanda's Ultimate Aim Be
Only Dictatorial Rule of His Party in Nepal?
The statements of the former prime
minister and chairman of Nepal's main opposition party Pushpa Kamal
Dahal 'Prachanda' far and against India may be part of some
diplomacy, for the benefits of some individuals and their families.
When I happened to be in Nepal
during the election days as one of the Short Term International
Observers, did notice the love and affection of Nepalese villagers
for Indians. The Nepalese, you may call them as Maoists
functionaries or by any other name of the party, group etc,
challengingly said, "No-body can successfully stop our movements and
the business dealings, even by sealing the border with
When on April 10, 2008, that is,
the elections day, it was being claimed and announced
internationally that the border was sealed; the Villagers said it
was only on papers and if they so desire, then knew how to cross and
feel free to do so even under such circumstances.
They also claimed that they always
celebrated Dewali and other Indian festivals there along with their
socially and closely related relatives from
I did also not find or noticed much
difference between Indians and Nepalese. Both, Indians and Nepalese
are closely related by all means.
After the election, the Chairman
Prachanda assured "that the Maoist would work together with all and
ask the international community to help achieve the goals of rapid
economic growth, sustainable peace and institutionalization of a
federal democratic setup for building a new Nepal. He repeatedly
said that we shall actively participate in the era of globalization,
liberalization and privatization. To my mind, in his speech, he has
shown very liberal attitude to accommodate all and seek help to
build up better Nepal".
Some of Maoist workers heard saying
that it all was only a political strategy at the moment but I,
personally did not doubt the Chairman Prachanda in the context and
in face of his sincere assurance and approach to the international
community for sustainable peace and development not only in Nepal
but in whole of South Asia, as the condition of democratic values in
Indian sub-continent are no way better than Nepal.
Now, I feel, the Maoist workers had
spoken, then by heart and rightly judged Maoist Chairman Pushpa
Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda saying that the assurance was only a
political strategy at the moment.
On April 12, 2008, I personally got
a chance to congratulate Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias
Prachanda for the mandate the people gave to his party and shake
hands with him.
Who knows what can be the mood of 'Prachanda'
Will his ultimate aim and the
acceptance be only dictatorial rule or similar to that of his party
in Nepal? Whether geographically and politically that would be
feasible within the given territory of
keeping in view the trend in the modern world?

U.S. Asks Nepal Maoists To Work Constructively For Peace
12/24/2009 2:51 AM ET
(RTTNews) - In the wake of a fresh
political turmoil in Nepal, the United States Wednesday urged the
Maoists in the Himalayan nation to "work constructively" with other
political parties to move the peace process forward and help draft
the new constitution in time.
"We urge the Maoist to work
constructively with the other parties to move the peace process
forward," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.
Noting that the United Communist
Party Nepal (Maoist) has just ended a violent three-day nation-wide
general strike, Toner said these strikes do little to build
consensus in the country.
This is the first public statement from the U.S. on the situation in
Nepal after threats by the former rebels to paralyze the Himalayan
nation with an indefinite strike from January 24 in protest against
