Corrupt Leaders Contribute to Demise of Nepal

Since 2006, Nepal’s situation has been gradually deteriorated. This is because our basic foundations are violated; consequently national unity and sustainable peace has not been achieved.

The constitution is non-functional with the annulment of the constitution of 1990 that was suddenly suspended without any reason. The country has been unconstitutionally declared a so called republic and secular state. This is in fact, the foremost cause of the deteriorative situation of the country. Now, we are in Nepal facing a most terrible crisis. Probably we are experiencing the darkest period of our entire history.

Who is responsible for this deterioration?

Let me try to explain. I think basically there are two reasons. The first is an internal reason, and that is the corrupted, visionless and politically incapable party leaders. The second reason is the vested interests of some foreign powers and their notorious interference. Due to the eccentric corrupt characters of the party leaders in Nepal, the political, social and economic disintegration is continuing all over these days. They failed to understand the reality of the country and the desires of our people. They are traitors. The parties are choosing ethnic lines to operate themselves, to break Nepalese unity. This is tantamount to opting for a suicidal path.

The essences of Nepalese nationalism are – Hinduism, constitutional monarchy and Nepali language. These three are typical identifying symbols of Nepal. The Nepalese royal institution basically was known for national unity and patriotism. Nepal’s sovereignty, integrity and national pride were addressed by the monarchy. Nepal is not only an ancient sovereign country but also the only Hindu Kingdom in the world. The small and pious Hindu and Buddha country, Nepal always seeks a permanent, loyal and respected permanent institution – the monarchy. The strategic and geo-socio-political situation of Nepal mandatorily demands the existence of a monarchical institution in the country. The monarchy and Hindu Kingdom both are inter-related identified symbols of Nepal. Our concern is national stability, unity and complete democracy.

Since 1990, the leaders of Congress & UML believed that the constitution of the Kingdom of Nepal, 1990 was the best constitution in the world because they used to say they were committed to constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy. At present, it seems they forgot it, just as a dream. What were the pitfalls of the Constitution of 1990? Why was it suspended without reason? What kind of new constitution did they require? Even they are reluctant to justify it in front of Nepalese people. Maoists used to claim themselves as nationalists. But they are completely exposed as they signed a 12 point agreement directed by India, in Delhi. Now there is painful confusion about the forward direction to be taken by Nepal.

“Crows are never the white for washing.”

A living fish swims in the pond but a dead fish floats with the stream. The living fish preys on insects in the pond but when it is dead the same insects prey on its corpse. This is the rule of nature. The sky cannot have two suns, there is one and only one sun in the sky. The sun sets in the evening and rises in the morning. A civilized society is created by embracing the truth that can be grasped by the human life system. But it is not the case with Nepal. The party leaders are merely trying to keep the people in an illusion. They must see that dead fishes are floating in Rani Pokhari (Queen pond of Kathmandu), similarly, they should have to realize the nationalistic path. When they pretend not to acknowledge such things then they get slapped from their activists. So, let’s not forget that the leaders that betray the nation will be subject to attack from all corners of the nation and people, not just political activists.

A Maoist party leader has disclosed facts relating to his senior leaders Prachanda and Baburam in Jana Aastha weekly – “In 1988, the then King Birendra gave continuity to King Mahenda’s line of opposition to Indian expansionist policy by importing arms from China. As a result, India started on a conspiracy to cut the rights of the King. King Birendra was prepared to bow before the people of the nation but not before India. Nepali Congress (NC) was ideologically pro-Indian. After the murder of the Nepal Communist Party (UML) leader Madan Bhandari, UML leadership became pro-Indian. Then the Mahakali Treaty took place. To forestall the possibility of an alliance between the royal palace and the ongoing Maoists’ insurgency India worked on to massacre the family of King Birendra using the Devyani Rana the daughter of Pashupati Shamshere Rana.”

“After the King’s murder in 2001, the Maoists Prachanda and Baburam jointly sent a secret letter of subordination to the Indian Prime Minister. Then Maoist leaders including Mohan Vaidya (Kiran) were captured in India. In 2004 Kul Bahadur K.C (Sonam) and Anil Sharma (writer) among other leaders were apprehended in Patna. Bhattarai was feeling safer in India than in Nepal. Meanwhile the succeeding King Gyanendra was not ready to accept some advices from India. A rift was created between the palace and India. And then, Delhi did not need the necessity of Gyanendra. They surrendered to the policies of Prachanda and Bhattarai. On basis of this foundation a 12 point pact was reached. The 12 point understanding joined hands with the Indian expansionist policy. The information that Maoist-Ananta, who was in-charge of the Valley, was working as the representative of Baburam Bhattarai was made public.”

“To stop a conspiracy against Prachanda from leaking and to maintain trust; to increase the trust with India, Ananta plotted another conspiracy and a plan to kill Jamin Shah (head founder of Daily Paper Space Times and Nepal Channel-TV). All the plans from smuggle of red sandal wood, Yarsagumba, fake note transaction to the murder of Jamin Shah was made at the house of Ramhari Shrestha in Koteshwor. Ramhari knew everything. Then, Ramhari became a danger for Maoists. Then permission from Prachanda was taken to interrogate Ramhari though he was innocent, he was tortured in Chitwan and subsequently murdered.” (Anil Sharma (Birahi), Jana Aastha 26 Oct, 2012)

The true character of the Maoists can be acknowledged the anarchist activities of Maoists from here.

People are so aggressive against the leaders of Maoist, Congress, and UML. We remember the past days of the party leaders’ notorious activities – villager Devi Prasad Regmi, slapped UML chairman Jhalanath Khanal in Sunsari has said – “All the people from Mechi to Mahakali must rise and we must dig a pit even for 601 CA members in front of the CA building to bury them alive.” (20 Nov. 2012 Saurya Daily)

Such is the people’s wrath against the traitors inside of the ruling parties that came after 2006. Gradually, Prachanda and Sushil Koirala were attacked by their workers. Now, the PM Sushil Koirala and the Congress and UML joint Govt. also in traps of secularism, republic and federalism – the suicidal path of Nepal. These three agendas are not the demand of Nepalese people. Nepal is an original land of Hindu and Buddha and the great King PN Shah unified the 54 small Hindu states and formed the united Hindu Kingdom.

So, Nepal was an original Hindu Kingdom from the beginning. The Nepalese monarchy is the symbol of Nepal’s unity, stability and sovereignty.

But, it will not be so good by beating these traitors. They must be incarcerated in implication of treason. The state must keep these traitors on low nutrition food that barely sustains life. They must be showcased in the zoo as traitors and if any foreign tourists want to have a look at them they should be charged only Rs.1/- with which we can buy these traitors’ food. It is not taken as a good thing to beat and kill anyone from the Hindu and Buddhist point of view. No one can be secure by lying, swindling, threatening, stealing, kidnapping and murdering others. The frustration and anger of Nepalese people against the leaders who associate themselves with the Maoists’ party, NC, UML and Madhesi parties is simmering.

The reaction and feeling of people is unexpected which indicates in the president’s election in America. As Obama was elected the President of the US for the second term, that country is on verge of division on difference pertaining to ideological ground. Following the Presidential election twenty federal states have put forth twenty demands to become independent. The constitution of the US has no such provision for separation of the states. Despite which it is their opinion that the 50 states that make the US that gained independence from the British colonization cannot be stopped from being different. Like the saying goes, sin cries from the depths, this is the result of the world suppression by the US in name of religion; weapon and human rights. During the establishment of communism, the Soviet Union was created with a combination of 15 states. It broke down after 70 years. After World War II, America and Russia rose as the world’s two super powers. America led the capitalist camp while Russia the communist bloc. The ensuing tussle between these two powers spread to all the countries of the world creating disturbances. In 1990 Soviet Russia dissolved and now there are indications of USA meeting similar fate.

‘Sin is crying from the roofs.’

Now, to give the nation a solution we must honor the unchangeable provisions of the 1990 constitution. There is no alternative to move ahead in consensus for change on foundation of the 1990 constitution with constitutional monarchy. India has witnessed the historical victory of nationalist patriotic power as a democratic practice of world’s largest democracy. We heartily congratulate Prime minister Sri Narendra Modi, a visionary leader of BJP. We believe Indo-Nepal relations will find new dimensions with new government of India. We are against any interference. But we always seek positive support and developmental cooperation. At this time, we are in crisis. All Nepali people want India be supportive in reinstating Nepal’s lost pride – Hinduism and constitutional monarch. So, to save the national prestige of Nepal, the King and all the patriotic force of the nation – all nationalists within political parties, the court, and security source, and national army, employees must actively participate in saving the nation.
