Why is India Supporting the Nepalese Maoists?

Nepal and India do not want any kind of communist authoritarianism, they aspire only to full democracy. The concerns of both countries is political stability, peace and good governance. It is because only a good and well-established political system can lead the public by determining appropriate social and economic management of the state through concrete policies and programmers. So, both nations are interested in a democratic system. But, the Maoists of Nepal and India want any democratic government to step down and be replaced by one led by themselves. Then why are the Indian politicians and diplomats supporting the anarchist groups?

Since 2006, Nepal has been known as the party of opportunists and destructors. After general election- 1990, Girija Prasad became Prime Minister. He came out aggressively in spreading the influence of Congress in every area of politics and administration by finishing off the opposition. The current violence, murder, theft, rape and insecurity actually started in 1991.

The creator of the Maoist rebellion was Girija. After 1992, in the name of annihilating Masal-Communists (later called the Maoists) murder, suppression, and rape crossed the limit. In revenge, Maoists systematically killed thousands of civilians, police and army personnel. Millions worth of physical infrastructures were destroyed or burned. And since 2005, Girija (leader of NC) joined hands with the Maoists. JNU Prof -S.D.Muni, the strategist of RAW had given the 12-point anti-Nepal agendas of the Republic, Secularism and Federal states to the perverted leaders of the parties and a few lawyers, doctors, and journalists to end the existence of Nepal.

The Maoists are using their agendas and are opening a ‘Pandora’s Box’- a one-party communist anarchism. The Maoist Party has their own army. The UNMIN also listened only to the Maoist rebels and the corrupt leaders of the so-called big party. The UNMIN and other unseen groups are working to push Nepal into a bloodier civil war and conflict. From the very beginning, UNMIN has been demoralizing the Nepal army.

Nowhere in the world, would a country be able to protect its sovereignty by making the national army weak and powerless. Can we compare the national army with the Maoists cadre (army)? Due to the suspicious activities UNMIN, now, in Nepal, there are now two armies- the national army and the Maoist’s army. Can we imagine two kinds of armies in a single country?

To understand the grand design of the Maoists, the Maoist leader Baburam Bhattarai says – ‘After the abolition of the monarchy, who could try to resist, our main contradiction then would be with the bourgeois democratic parties. After April 2009 [when Prachanda resigned from government], that phase of the Constituent Assembly and implementation of the bourgeois democratic republic was more or less complete. We had formulated the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), we had our base areas, we had a lot of mass support, and all this we have been able to preserve. The PLA is still with us, and the arms we collected during that war are still with us within the single-key system, monitored by the United Nations team, but basically the key is with us and the army is with us and we have never surrendered. We are still continuing in the path of revolution.’ http://www.wprmbritain.org/?p=926.

The reality of the grand design of Maoists has been exposed from Dr. Bhattarai.

I am sorry to write that it was a great blunder of Indian diplomats- Shyam Saran- former Indian ambassador and former foreign Secretary of India (who is widely credited with bringing the present instability in Nepal), and Sive Shankar Mukharejee, former foreign minister, KB Rajan- former Indian ambassador, Rakesh Sood-present ambassador, Prof.SD Muni (RAW strategist) and other officials who not only blundered in their assessment of the Maoists but also did much harm to Indian’s interests in Nepal. Among diplomats, Shyam Saran is a very ambitious diplomat who could not calculate the good result. Now, the Nepalese Maoists, RIM and COMPOSA have been joining together for a one-party system – Communism.

Due to the blunders of the culprit Nepalese leaders and the Indian diplomats, nationality and democracy of both countries is in danger. I think, due to the Indian Maoist (Naksalite) the Indian security force is becoming weaker day by day.

In such condition, what is the answer of Indian politicians and diplomats? Without analyzing assumptions, why have the Indian leaders supported the Nepalese Maoist’s hypocrisy? ‘Crows are never white from washing.’

An Indian scholar Dr. Arvind Gupta writes:

“The 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 it is drafted, that it will bring stability.

“The 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 ‘India Needs a New Paradigm in Its Nepal Policy)

A prominent journalist Pushpa Raj Pradhan, editor of the People’s Review, writes:

“The Indian Embassy in Kathmandu is spending 57 billion rupees per years under the ‘ Small Grant Project.’ Out of the total of FM radios, 50 percent of them are receiving such Indian grants. Similarly, some Christian missions have also funded those FM radios just to broadcast Christian programmes. India wants the Indianization of Nepal and the Christians want to transform Nepal from a Hindu state to a Christian state. A famous researcher, Yogi Narahari Nath always used to say that Nepal gives everything to India, from its fresh air to herbs, fresh water, indigenous production working manpower, etc, and Nepal is getting nothing from India. The Indian wish is to bring all the political parties into the Indian fold. The Indian mission was fulfilled by the seven parties plus Maoists alliance with the direct support of India – from human resources to financial resources. Christians too became successful in declaring Nepal a secular state.”

It is a matter of grave sadness that the political leaders are not feeling the foreign intervention. So, it is very necessary that all the nationalists including the King should stand to save the identity and sovereignty of this pious land- NEPAL.

What were pitfalls of the Constitution of 1990? Why was it suspended without reason? What kind of new constitution would we require? Why has India supported the Constituent assembly? These are the causes of crisis in Nepal.

The anti-Indian voice is increasing day-by-day. Nepalese democratic exercise faced a black period in between 2005-2010. The nation’s future seems dark because they have walked as directed by unseen forces that beckon them without studying Nepal’s geographical reality and sensitivity.

For 240 years the Shah dynasty did not allow Nepal to disintegrate. Even in difficult situations, the dynasty preserved Nepal’s national dignity. The dynasty that never bowed down to foreign influence bowed down to the people. But the Nepalese people still have not recognized the true value of the institution. The Nepalese monarchy has always showed goodwill towards India. Cordial people to people relationships between Nepal and India has existed since ancient times.

We have to keep friendly relations with India due to our similar cultural and religious traditions. But, since 2005, the cordial situation is dissolving day by day between Nepal & India. I believe the permanent institution of ‘Monarchy’ can re-unite the cordial relationship between Nepal & India.

So, on behalf of Nepalese nationalists, India and all the democratic forces, we demand to reinstate our beloved monarchy of the Nepalese in order to save the identity, unity and democracy of Nepal. Once re-instated, the king needs to form an inclusive cabinet under the leadership of neutral politicians to find different solutions.
