Nepal Still Seeking for Complete Democracy

The concern of the Nepalese people is complete democracy. Although the parliamentary systems in practice around the world vary in their nature, they are adjusted into the nation’s situation. But, since 2006 Nepalese people tolerated the worst political practice made by corrupt and culprit leaders. The nation achieved the climaxed height of the lawlessness, theft, robbery, ransom and murders. The corruption is out of control. A corrupt tendency has been institutionalizing as a system. The Nepalese justice system has failed in practice.

In every criminal case, police have still refusing to register the criminal complaints, sometimes in the face of a court order to do so. Due to the culprit’s regime, the government has failed to reform laws that impede effective criminal investigations into past violations. Nepal Supreme Court’s CJ Khilraj Regmi has accepted the PM post unconstitutionally by the support of Maoist. This is great blunder of the CJ Khilraj Regmi to deceive the norms of judiciary.

Since 2006, the Nepalese people are suffering from the traitors’ regime. In the name of democracy the leaders such as Girija Prasad became engrossed in power politics and used their position to drain state treasury. They deceived democracy and themselves. As per the agreement reached with the King on 24 April, 2006, Girija Prasad took oath of Prime Minister in accordance to the 1990 constitution in the palace. None of the Nepali Congress (NC) leaders or democratic activists can forget that he had breached the agreement and institutionalized anarchy by the hint of RAW. Girija Prasad Koirala destroyed NC’s democratic norms and pushed the nation to the peak of retrogression. After Girija Prasad, Prime Minister Maoist Baburam Bhattarai converted Nepal to take his spot amongst the sinners and traitors. In spite of his doctor’s degree he has no sense of nationality. He is more dangerous traitor than Girija Prasad. Girija and Bbauram had accepted foreign intelligence agencies guidance to destroy Nepal’s identity. Due to which the nation is in danger of falling into an ambush. Now, four party leaders appointed the Supreme Court’s Chief Justice Khilraj Regmi as a proxy PM by the hint of Indian nefarious design.

Upspring 2006 had created by RAW design. In this context, S.D Muni (Professor of J.N.U and the policy maker of south block) in his article ‘Dealing with a new Nepal’ in The Hindu Daily on 15th September 2008 has conceded that India had provided one billion rupees for running the agitation.’ With those resources along with the guide-lines of south-block, they could forge the Jana-Anandolan. This was the mysterious design for our country. The Indian former foreign minister and sitting President Pranab Mukharjee accepted that the Maoist party which was an extremist party and chose violence was convinced by India and compelled to join mainstream politics. We also convinced other mainstream political parties (Nepali Congress, UML) to form government by including Maoist party also. (The Kathmanu Post-29 Jun 2009)

Similarly, news exposes the Indian intervention. ‘At a meeting held between the Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao and a high ranking US official, Richard Holbrook January 18, 2010, the Indian foreign secretary during a two hour long working breakfast had accepted that Indian establishment had funded the Maoists’ rebellion in Nepal and that eventually became counterproductive to India’ The detail of the Rao- Holbrook conversation was later forwarded by the US ambassador in New Delhi to the US government that the WikiLeaks has made public. – Telegraph Nepal, 7th Dec.2010

An Indian scholar Dr. Arvind Gupta writes- Anti-India feeling in Nepal is at its peak. The peace process in Nepal is extremely complicated. India helped bring about the 12-point agreement. It is doubtful that India can help bring the peace process to the desired outcome. There is no guarantee that the Constitution will be drafted soon and that even if drafted, it will bring stability. Nepalese are suspicious of India when they hear Indians talk about cooperation on water issues. Many in Nepal feel that mega projects will not help Nepal. The unregulated, open India-Nepal border is a major security concern for both countries. Cross-border crime, smuggling, fake currency and infiltration of undesirable elements including potential terrorists into India are a major security concern. Nepal also has concerns regarding the smuggling of small arms from the Indian side into Nepal.’ August 27, 2010′.

Ashok K Mehta a former India Army general Ashok Meheta writes in Daily Indian newspaper Pioneer -‘People in Kathmandu believe that the Baburam Bhattarai-led Government is India-appointed, and that Chief Justice Regmi as caretaker Prime Minister is primarily an Indian idea.’ Similarly the retired General Ashok Mehta has very freshly requested the Indian government to intervene in Nepali politics at the earliest.- Pioneer daily. Professor SD Muni, a Nepal-expert in India, was interviewed by Navin Singh Khadka of the BBC Nepali service during President Ram BaranYadav’s India-visit in December. (The interview was broadcast by the BBC then). Excerpts: ‘We have seen Prime Minister BaburamBhattarai having had one on one with his Indian counterpart a number of times. He has told us that he has been able to convince the Indian side that his government will not allow Nepal to slide back into political instability. What do you make out of it? former Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran, who played a pivotal role in brokering the anti-Monarchy New Delhi Declaration of 2005 between the Maoists and the Seven Party Alliance which led to the 12-point Letter of Understanding. Speaking at the release ceremony of the book, which included the controversial Muni revelations, Mr. Saran justified Indian intervention in preventing the dismissal of Army Chief General Rukmangad Katwal in 2009 by the Prachanda-led coalition Government as that would have led to the direct control by Maoists of two Armies: The state’s Nepalese Army and its own PLA which had not been integrated by then.

In this context, a prominent journalist Pushpa Raj Pradhan, editor-People’s Review, writes- ‘Indian Embassy in Kathmandu is spending 57 billion rupees per years under the ‘ Small Grant Project’. Out of total FM radios, 50 percent of them are receiving such Indians grants. Similarly, some Christian missions have also funded those FM radios just too broadcast Christian programmed. India wants the Indianization of Nepal and the Christians want to transform Nepal from a Hindu state to a Christian state.

So, we can calculate-Nepal is in danger position. ‘Crow are never the white for washing.’ Nepal can’t save from the traitors who are in regime since 2006. Nepalese people do not want the unconstitutional rule of the so called larger parties Maoists, Congress, UML, Madhesi any more. The monarchy was pivotal in integrating Nepal, establishing democratic and just society at par with the modern world. Only this option will open the doors for political resolution in Nepal. After the death of CA, 1990 constitution has restored automatically. The appointment of the CJ Khilraj Regmi as a head of government can’t give solution. So, it is necessary to revive the 1990 constitution. After the death of CA, the 1990 constitution with monarchy has restored automatically. So, this is the only alternative to move Nepal according to the 1990 Constitution with constitutional monarchy.
