One day after a special gathering and meeting of hardliner monarchists in Kathmandu, the monarchist leaders of the Nepali Congress instructed the security chiefs to rapidate suppressive actions against the Maoists all over Nepal. The Maoists have been in the peace process for two years now. Their arms are in the cantonments monitored by the UN.
Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, a hardliner anti-leftist Nepali Congress leader, has appointed his daughter as a senior minister without a portfolio to do all the prime ministerial jobs. The Seven Party Alliance has designated Koirala as the Head of the State though he is officially the prime minister. His daughter is a de facto prime minister since she is relieving her father of his prime ministerial burdens.
The Koirala family in Nepal has always sided with the feudal monarchy and due to their unchanged stance in favor of landlordism, the majority of working class Nepalis have suffered from feudal mechanisms in the name of democracy.
Other Nepali Congress’s influential leaders Sher Bahadur Deuba, Khum Bahadur Khadka, Bijay Kumar Gachchhedar, KB Gurung, Govinda Raj Joshi and other had have been advocating for feudal monarchy even after millions of Nepalis completely discarded the feudal monarchy from the streets during the great historical April uprising in 2006.
In the meantime, another Nepali Congress landlordist leader Dilendra Badu and his armed workers incited Maoists in a far western district Darchula. As landlords who had run away from the district ten years ago came to preach democracy for elections, angry local people protested against them. The locals showed their wrath at those Nepali Congress district leaders who suppressed the people and lived luxuriously in Kathmandu for 10 years without any concern for people. But Dilendra and his hooligans misused this protest. They called two villagers in the pretext of talks and shot them. When the villagers saw their fellows bleeding with pistol shots, they began to through stones angrily. This information is from the local sources there.
However, Kathmandu-based media owned by feudal landlords and foreigners distorted the news to make people feel the other way. This political manipulation of the mass media has helped war mongers and arms traffickers linked to the corrupt ruling circles of Nepal. Immediately following the incident, the police have raided in dozens of Maoist residences all over Nepal with a clear purpose of instigating situation towards revoking war in the country. Should the ceasefire break in any pretext, the current ruling forces that have aligned with the feudal monarchy and war-mongering arms dealers are likely to be swept away within one year. Amidst such circumstances jeopardizing the hard-earned peace process, the Maoists appear to be more resourceful and patient. Ordinary people are not so happy with their inadequate response to such pre-war prepararations by fedual mechanisms.
All agree that the elections of the constituent assembly can be a better democratic option for transforming the armed conflict. If the Nepalis across the country unite for the elections of the constituent assembly, such war-favoring anti-democratic forces will meet a final blow.
