Sher Bahadur Deuba Against Constituent Assembly Election: Why?

There is a saying in Nepali: Ikh nabhayeko chhora ra bikh nabhayeko sarpa ekai hun [A son without resolve and snake without poison are same (or useless)]. Sher Bahadur Deuba, the former Prime Minister and president of Nepali Congress (Democratic), is a perfect example. He is speaking against the election of Constituent Assembly and indirectly helping the king.

By Dinesh Wagle

The king kicked on his face several times but Deuba never stops acting like a loyal royal slave. And he always talks in such a way that would be beneficial to the king. [King Gyanendra sacked Deuba from the post of Prime Minister branding him “incompetent” to hold the general election in 2004 and, again in 2005, put him in house arrest in 2005 after sacking from the same post of PM.] After the royal coup of Feb 2005, Sher Bahadur Deuba was vocally against the king (or monrchy) though there were some people who used to say that this man could do the U turn at anytime. They used to cite Deuba’s pro-royal activities, including accepting royal awards which have been traditionally declined Nepali Congress leaders for decades. It seems those skeptics are going to be correct. Deuba has started showing the sing of U turn. Yesterday he talked against the possibility of election of Constituent Assembly on time (by June). He thinks the security situation is too bad to hold an election and says eight parties [ruling alliance and the Maoist] should unanimously agree to reschedule the election program. Talking to journalists at his party’s headquarters in Maharajgunj, Deuba said: “In light of the recent incidents in the country, the voters are in no position to cast their votes in a fear-free environment.” How can an ‘incompetent’ Deuba say so? For him, the security situation wasn’t favorable even in 2004 and, when he tried to push the election dates, faced royal sacking. Now, the same guy is talking about pushing the election to uncertainty on the pretext of same old reason.

Yes, security situation is not good in Nepal these days. Even the Prime Minister has accepted this harsh reality. But it’s not bad in all areas. The situation is challenging mainly in a few districts in southern Nepal. There is no security problem in hilly and mountainous districts. No problem in many other districts in Terai itself. Some, including the election commission, say there are not enough staffs and security personnel for the election. Why not go for options like holding election in phases? The most promising aspect is that Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala is committed to holding election in time. He said so in his recent meeting with the election commissioner which was attended by all leaders including Prachanda of the Maoist, Madhav Kumar Nepal of CPN UML and Deuba. Deuba expressed negativism on the prospects of election in that meeting as well where as Koirala, Nepal and Prachanda firmly committed themselves towards the democratic process. (Today MK Nepal said that “worsening law and order situation has overshadowed the election issue”. This statement from his is intended at pressurizing the government than trying to push the election to uncertainty.) The only person supporting Deuba in the meeting was Surya Bahadur Thapa (of Rastriya Janashakti Party.) Thapa recently came heavily against democratic development. It’s not hard to see the anti-election nexus that is slowly growing.

The main point is we should not push the election of Constituent Assembly on any pretext. We have the history, very bitter, about not being able to hold the CA election. And the king took advantage of that situation in the 50s. There was no effective pressure for CA election at that time because, as I read somewhere, the CA election issue was only raised by the parties at that time. Today situation is different. People want constituent assembly. The whole country has made the CA election the main agenda. When the whole country is ready to caste vote, the masked efforts from people like Deuba to derail the election plan must be countered effectively. In the past few days Nepali Congress general secretary Ram Chandra Poudel has also hinted that the process of election couldn’t be finished by the end of Jestha meaning that the process could be extended for weeks. That can be accepted but I see some problem with Deuba statement. He isn’t honest. I see some kind of conspiracy in his remarks. It is a known fact that the palace wants to stop the election of the assembly that will decide the fate of monarchy with a simple majority. It’s almost certain that the assembly will vote to eradicate the feudal institution from Nepal. Even a child understands why palace wants to stop the election.

The Constituent Assembly is not just for dealing with monarchy in Nepal. It’s about drafting the new future plans for the country. It’s about restructuring the state, empowering various groups and ethnic/marginalized communities and bringing them to the mainstream of Nepali ruling. That is why all efforts must be focused on making the election of Constituent Assembly a reality.

  1. Deuba has always been the royal congressman. He always speaks for the palace. After all, he has another responsibility too: he is the jwauin of Rana. You know why the unification talks between NC and NC Democratic is going no where? Because Deuba doesn’t want the unification and I am surprised some folks like Prakash Sharan Mahat are still shouldering him. Damn.

  2. There is NO WAY the elections will be held by mid-June, Girija knows this, MaKuNe knows this, Pushpa Kamal Dahal urf Prachanda knows this. Why put people under false hope. Some leader had to come out and say this, so Mr. 3 time prime minister Sher Bdr said it.

    Now Mr. Dinesh Wagle here trying to be the “kala congress” and calling Mr. Deuba by all names. Mr. Deuba has not said he is AGAINST constitution assembly, but his HEADLINE makes you thinks so.

    Without the necessary preliminary homework, and at this circumstance, how can a Constitution Election be held? So Mr. Wagle, you being a pretty darn good journalist with good access to all the political network, do your homework, talk to the politicians and ask them what they are saying under their lips privately– the CA elections can’t happen by mid-June.

    But you could hear them landing out speeches suggesting hell will roll over if it doesn’t happen by mid-June, now that’s for the public, not for you Mr. Wagle. So write the TRUTH, don’t act like you are one of the pawn of the Girija led government.

  3. Koirala, Deuba, Prachanda, Madhav… Congrats..

    You all got the reason to save king, and postpond CA..

    Save King, long Live king..

    F**** you bloody politician

  4. Let’s see:
    1. Girija dies and Congress party will unite.
    2. Deuba becomes the leader of the United Congress.
    3. Deuba becomes Primeminister and the Gyanendra reinstated as the King.
    4. New constitution will be drawn and party politics will be banned.

    Oh! I must be dreaming. But I have one question to SPA and Maoist leaders:
    HOW COME THEY DON’T HAVE COURAGE TO DECLARE NEPAL REPUBLIC AND SEND THE KING AND HIS FAMILY TO EXILE?

  5. Deubakobau,

    To try to push the election to uncertainty and to the black hole is no different than to be against the election itself. You tell me why can the election he held? Why?

  6. Dinesh, what’s with conspiracy theories? Deuba is usually a class A idiot but this time he is making senses. If the SPA-M want the elections to the CA to be held on schedule then why don’t they prepare the proper enviroment for it on a war footing instead of the drama they create everyday over who get’s what ministry? The Govt. right now can’t even ensure the supply of an essential commodity like petrol and diesel due to security reasons how are they going to create a secure enviroment for free and fair elections in a little over a months time? Especially when like you said vested interests are against it. Get real…or you will start looking a worse idiot than Deuba.

  7. Royalists are growing rapidly online and in Tarai. Deupa is a jackaaaash. His brain is hollowed with his wife Arju Rana’s astrozen and his testaron is getting dried up for the CA election and democrcy. He must not be trusted by the people of Nepal.

    Royalists are growing with the mask of federalism and rights of marginalized people – the royalists’ target is to abandon the CA election. This is grave concern for NPRF. Here is the breaking news:

    Madhesi Student Front severs unties with MPRF

    Kantipur Report

    KATHMANDU, March 24 – The agitating Madhesi People’s Rights Forum’s (MPRF) wing Nepal Madhesi Student’s Front (NMSF) has announced its split from MPRF.
    A two-day meeting of the font’s central committee at Saptari’s Rajbiraj on Friday decided to sever ties with the forum stating that its activities were non-political.

    Issuing a press release today, front chairperson Keshav Kumar Jha slammed the forum’s Madhesi agitation as “heading astray” and accused forum chairman Upendra Yadav of conspiring against the Constituent Assembly (CA) elections in cahoots with royalists.

    Jha has further accused Yadav of sacking individuals with “political character” and replacing them with royalists in the MPRF’s central committee, of engaging in games to “protect the king” in the name of religion and vandalizing statues of litterateurs and democratic leaders under the palace’s directions during the Madhesi movement.

    Concluding that the MPRF could not liberate Terai in the real sense since it had directed the Madhesi agitation into a personal vendetta, and engaged in manslaughters and unnecessary clashes with the Maoists, NMSF released announced a formal severance of all its ties with the forum.

    ———————————————–
    This is what is going on and leaders of the MJF or MPRF must be arrested soon and brought to justice for the public vandalizations and massacre.

    Formation of the Intermim Government is essential to pinalize Deuba and the leaders of MPRF royalists.

  8. Deuba is right, at least his party had the guts to say that the elections should be postponed due to security reasons.
    Indirectly all the party leaders know that elections cannot be held on time, as they haven’t completed their homework, and with the Forum in picture, the SPAM are not sure of their terai votebank.

  9. UML Gen Secy doubtful about timely CA polls

    CPN (UML) general secretary Madhav Nepal (File photo)
    CPN (UML) general secretary Madhav Nepal has hinted that constituent assembly election may not be possible in mid-June given the deteriorating law and order situation of the country.

    Speaking at a programme in Panauti, Kavre district, on Saturday, Nepal said the government was doing little in translating its words into deed, which has cast doubt over conducting the election within the stipulated time.

    “Worsening law and order situation has overshadowed the election issue,” he further said.

    The UML general secretary Nepal is the second SPA leader, after Nepali Congress (Democratic) president Sher Bahadur Deuba, to raise doubt over the timely CA election. Deuba yesterday said the CA election should be deferred for some time in view of the complex security situation.

    Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala and the Maoists have, however, been stressing that CA election should be held within mid-June. A delegation of the European Parliament that visited Kathmandu March 21-23 also suggested the government to go ahead with the polls in the stipulated time

  10. just for me minute lets forget the comments came from askhshan Deuba and ask ourselves this hard question… is there anyone in Nepal who currently beleives that the CA can happen in June and second question is, if it does take place, do you have any assurance that the current ashaksam government and tikey parliamant will be able to and will allow it to be free and fair? It is pointless trying to shoot the messenger by going after the credentials of Deuba.. forget who said and focus on what was said…. and be realistic. Emotions can take you only so far…. it is the actions that will eventually make it happen, and like it or not, this asaksham government beleives in ‘inaction”.

  11. There is nothing that deuba said that is not a fact. He is only being realistic, something the rest of the leaders should be as well.

  12. well I think the opinion of Deuwa is right for him. He is right, in the sense that more people will be killed and people talk about the phase election when the ballot paper are counted there will be more vote then total population in nepal…

  13. Have you ever heared that the twisted tail of dog being straigthed. Deuba has always remained like a tail of dog. No matter what, he has never been a good politicians for Nepal and will never be. He is just an opportunist SONoFA BIT…..H. And stating this i mean in no way that other politicians are like “MILKED WASHED”.
    I just wander what these politicians are made of? If somebody spits on their face, they are ready to lick it and add a Thankyou Point to the insulter. I just pray god to find a way to get rid of these people.

  14. who are the alternatives to deuba. At least this guy had the guts to say put off the elections till security improves.
    Unless ceremonial monarcy is guranteed, the security situation will never improve.

  15. I am really shocked to know there are so many mandales here. Really, it is very difficult for me to understand why Deuba always prefers postponement of elections. Earlier also, he tried it once and then he got the boot of Gyanendra with an epitaph of “incompetent.” And whenever he turned out to be an incompetent, Royal palace became competent. Smell what the Deuba is cooking. Don’t smell Pratibha Rana anymore from him.

  16. Wagle, as you are a slave of the Maoist, of course you will speak against this. However, democracy works when there is freedom of speech and when political parties can go across the country without hindrance and spread their message. This has not happened becasue of your brothers who are thugs and terrorists. There is no way the CA election will be a valid representation if it occurred in June, it will be your Master’s dictatorship if it did happen. More of your maoist cadres are to die a brutal death. They should and they will…
    Jai Nepal

  17. Mr. Wagle: Now Madhav Nepal has also cast his doubts on whether the CA elections can be held. Prachanda has disclosed in his KTV interview on Saturday evenign that the UN was really upset with the PM saying that “there will be abnormal elections during abnormal times”. This, the international community feels will affect the credibility of the elections. Therefore, don’t just blame Deuba; blame thr entire 8 party alliance who are behaving like dictators in the last 1 year of absolute rule. There is no fuel in Kathmandu, load shedding, poor law and order situation have frustrated the Nepali people who had high hopes from the Loktantra. But Loktantra is now a cowdung.

  18. Yeah. This petroleum crisis is really a pain. Why doesn’t Mr. Dinesh Wagle utter a single word on this petroluem crisis that has gripped Kathmanu valley from the last 1 month? It is all because of bad management and corruption inside the Oil Corporation. We have to stay in queue for 4-7 hours just to get 5 litres of petrol. You journalists are lucky, you maybe getting free fuel from the Home Minister. I am also terribly upset the way this government has been running our nation. Not even during the royal rule was petroleum and gas in such short supply.

  19. Now, I am quite certain that Dinesh Wagle has become a mouth piece of NC. In fact we don’t need to go too far searching for bahunbaad in operation, it’s right here in UWB.

    Wagle, your analysis holds no water. There are very few journalist in Nepal who actually write sensible articles and Sheetal Kumar from Nepali times is one of them, here is what he had to say (I am sure most of you have followed his writings): http://nepalitimes.com/issue/341/EyesWideShut/13357

  20. WAGLE STOP CREATING PROPOGANDA AGAINST PEOPLE!!!

    REPORT TRUE FACTS

    DEUBA HASNT SAID THAT HE IS AGAINST CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY !!!

    HE JUST SAID IT NEEDS TO BE POSTPONED, SO YOU BETTER STOP CREATING PROPOGANDA, NEPALI CONGRESS DIVIDED BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

    DO YOU FRANKLY THING THAT THIS INCOMPTENT GIRIJA CAN HOLD THE ELECTION IN JUNE ???

  21. Wagle.. while going after Deuba you never yourself asnwered the question if what Deuba has said is correct or not in your thoughts.. so can we have an answer from you on the following statement made by Deuba that you have also quoted above..
    “In light of the recent incidents in the country, the voters are in no position to cast their votes in a fear-free environment.”

  22. tyo sher bahadru manchhe nai hoina ani k ko ikh?

    tyo ta thuk chatuwa ho gyane ko …..
    feri tesko fupaju sasura ko isara payo hola ni kehi…

  23. tyo manchhe hoina ni ani k ko ikh?

    gyaene ko thuk-chatuwa le feri kehi isaaro payo ki fupaju sasura ko?

  24. Did you watch Prachanda at Kantipur Bahas today?

    I did not see any points to disagree with him….

    Now before making any comments, if you haven’t watched it, do it now.

    I believe it’s available in ekantipur too.

  25. Wagle bro, I salute your journalism. The question everyone is asking at this juncture is why are the preparations for CA not being made??? Exposing the underlying causes of the stalemate would put all the so called ‘leaders’ on spot, thereby elevating your own stature in nepali journalism world.

  26. CA elections is the last chance to pull Nepal out of crisis. If the elections are held in a fearful situation then it will be controversial and the country will simply be sucked into civil war. At present, the govt is not able to run even the regular administration; the law and order situation is that bad, and we are talking about constituent assembly. Deuba is reflecting the ground situation in Nepal. He is correct.

  27. Haare Shiva,

    Tyo CA ko laagi hataar kina, ae baba santi surakchaa chaina bhanne ta sabai lai taha cha ni. Don’t Mr. Prachanda people carry weapon around everywhere they go (including parliament)? Aaba parliament ma chirne thau ma surakschaa chaina bhaane, janta lai vote halna ko laagi marnu parcha bhaane, anni hamra neta chai Mr. Prachanda, gyane, makune aadi ityaadi haaru banne. Makes no sense!!!!

    Issue cha, Terai ko issue interpret garna nai Makune lai 2 times rastra ko naam ma sambodhan garnu paryo. Aakhir kina ta? Tyati garo samasya hora tyo, ki it is just that, aahile paani ruler class ruler (including maobadi ko neta) nai rahana chahancha and don’t want to share with others. In fact satta ko share ko kura clear hunnu parcha CA bhanda pahile, Nepal army lai dismantle garnu parcha ra people army banaunu parcha, jaha jaati ko naam ma discrimination chaina. Aaba, sunnus ta hamra Maobadi ka kura haru, Terai ko manche le tiniharu lai pitda chai Indian ko gunda haru le gareko bhanne, ae baba, yo boli ta raja ko paani ho, democratic government ko paani ho, ra ini haru le pheri ni tyahi terai ko maanche nepal prati bafadaar chaina bhaana khojeko ho. “SAME LANGUAGE DIFFERENT ASSHOLES”. It is same for all other issues facing nepal today.

    By now, it is clear that Mr. Prachanda or Dr. Bhattarai is no better alternative to Gyane, makune etc. Lets wait and find better one. Maobadi ta government ma jaanai mildaina, MRPF jastai ali gatilo NGO chai kholera baase huncha-dadagiri garne.

    Election hattar ma hoina sahi environment ma garnu parcha. Shere le bhaneko sahi ho. Tyahi ho, Makune chai hattar ma marnu ni bhaena. Pappi bhae ni chahine bhaeko cha bajya.

  28. For once I agree with Deuba. I don’t know what his intentions are but CA elections under these cirsumstances is not possible.

  29. Wagle ji,

    we all need election at the earliest possible date but unfortunately 5 bills still needs to be passed through interim parliament, everyone is not educated like urself who knows CA polls and its mechanisms, more importantly the conducive environment, security is not like gathhaghar or lokanthali throughout the nation, . We accept that its a political need and has to be conducted at any cost BUT Pls also accept the the fact its practically /technically very very difficult to conduct withn the prescribed time.

    REALITY RULZ!!!!

  30. Well I think you should check the ground realities before doing any propoganda against Deuba.

    Have you imagined what sort of violence the country will have to face if the election is held in June?

    I support Deuba, and his party Nepali Congress (Democratic) for making truthful comments about the situation.

    DEUBA DIDNT SAY HE IS AGAINST CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY BUT HE STATED THAT CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY SHOULD BE POSTPONED.

    LET US ESTABLISH PEACE IN THE COUNTRY FIRST, THAT SHOULD BE THE MAIN PRIORITY

  31. WAGLE SHOULD BE SHAMEFUL FOR TWISTING THE NEWS !!!

    DEUBA SAID THAT CA SHOULD BE POSTPONED, AND HE IS NOT AGAINST CA ELECTION !!!

    DEUBA IS DEFINITELY RIGHT !! AT LEAST HE HAS COURAGE ENOUGH TO STATE THE GROUND REALITIES OF THE COUNTRY AND IS NOT BUSY MISUSING THE FACILITY OF GOVERNMENT LIKE GIRIJA PRASAD AND CRONIES CO.

    WHO THE HELL IN THEIR RIGHT MIND CAN THINK THAT ELECTION COULD BE HELD IN SITUATION OF SUCH VIOLENCE?

    CONGRESS PARTY BROKE UP BECUASE OF OPPORTUNISTS INSIDE THE PARTY LIKE WAGLE AND HIS CORPORATE BOSS KANTIPUR CO. WHO HAVE BEEN MISUSING THEIR IDENTITY AS A JOURNALIST AND MEDIA CENTRE BY PROMOTING YELLOW JOURNALISM !!!

  32. AT LEAST DEUBA HAS GUTS TO SPEAK TRUTH THAT CA CAN NOT BE HELD ON TIME DUE TO MAOIST INTIMIDATION. I BET EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT BUT THESE BUGGERS AND COWARD CAN NOT TELL THE TRUTH TO PEOPLE OF NEPAL. HE MAY BE STUPID BUT I ADMIRE HIS FRANKNESS AND HE SPEAKS PEOPLE LANUGUAGE UNLIKE DEAR COMREDS WHO SPEAKS ONE THING AND DO EXACTLY OPPOSITE THING. WE WILL TOLERATE RATHER STUPID LEADER THAN THESE MURDERED AND TERRORISTS. MAOBADI IS DOING MANPARI AND THEN SAYING SORRY AFTERWARD. THIS WILL NOT HOLD WATER WITH NEPALI PEOPLE ANYMORE AND THERE WILL BE ANOTHER TRUE REVOLUTION BY NEPALI PEOPEL WHICH WILL PUT LAST ILLEGIMATE AND FOREIGN SPONSERED SO CALL FAKE REVOLUTION TO SHAME. THIS TIME ALL THE LEADER OF SPA & M LEADER SHOULD BE WIPED OUT FOR ARENA ONCE FOR ALL.

  33. Deuba has done the maoists a favour. This is what the maoists want, infact they want no CA elections, they want to go on ruling after joining the government through whatever pressure politics. They also want to get their PLA into the NA and this will not happen if elections are held as they will not get as many seats as they have now.

    We have to hold the elections if we can at the earliest.

  34. This is nothing but Maoists propaganda. Wagle and guys like him know Deuba represent only right side of political spectrum in the country. I don’t believe that royalists are right-winger for one thing all of them are too close to Chinese communist regime, they are just opportunists.

    Second part of Maoists propaganda is to blame Hindu religion for everything. I don’t have to mention here how much these Maoists hate religion. Simply they can’t live for a second without defaming religion.

  35. The problem with postponing elections for “security reasons” is that the security situation will not necessarily improve. It also gives everyone who may not want the election to take place a chance to delay them by creating as much violence and disorder as possible.

    If the elections are delayed, they will be delayed because the government hasn’t even taken the first steps in arranging for them to be conducted.

  36. How judgmental you can be, Wagle? Is there any difference between YCL or Kangaroo court of Maoist than you, hell no. Everyone has right to speak but you speak with premediated & preconcieved ideas and go vocal for someone speaking the truth. This does not suit you at all, comrade Wagle. Do not ever imagine Loktratra means only your kind a Trantra, By the way I don like this word Loktratra – borrowed from Indians with a enslaved mentality of SPAM leaders- THE WORD IS DEMOCRACY AND MULTIPARTY.

    Grow up-you pampered Wagle- fed by foreign monies, indoctored by foreign trips, conventions and study tour. All you have is jilted lover’s syndrome. It all shows on your knee jerk comments that is void substance. The one and only envious, malicious, and yellow journalist.

  37. Somebody kill Deuba…..pleaseeeeeeeeeee.
    If the elections are delayed nothing much will happen, a few more people will die and opportunists from the terai or the far far unheard parts will make this country a misery.

    No moatter what it is, and how it will be, the constituitional elections must be held, and if needed there must be dhandali cause a republican nepal should not be denied at any cost.

  38. What the hell, Horning is correct for once. We should just go forward and get those elections done with. If we wait, we’ll keep waiting forever. Things are not too good now, things will get worse later.

    Its time to start.

  39. In the words of SPAM warlords, there are too many ‘ROYALISTS’ here. I am a hardcore ‘ROYALIST’ too.
    Seriously there are too many in this blog. I am afraid, if elections are ever going to be held, the warlords are gonna lose it big time.

  40. Warlords, do something. Kill a few more and spread some more propaganda to increase your support base.

  41. We need to abolish the monarchy, if King Gyne was still in power, 3000 people would be dead, thousands would still be in jail and tortured, and fuming with misery, families would have their members in prison, as the war would have carried on getting Worse. We need the republic of peace. Not a kingdom of torture, and death. To support the monarchy is to support pain, misery and destablisation and war.

  42. dehru.. please help us figure out who it is that we are supposed to support these days in Nepal… I agree with you that supporting the king is certainly not the best thing to do… however, we are looking for an alternative at the same time…

  43. Wagle
    There is saying in Nepali: LATO KANCHA EK BALTANG BADO KANCHA TWI BALTANG. That means dumb one fall only once but smarty (like SPA+wagle) fall many times.
    Probabbly Wagle think CA is like wedding, if not take place on time there is no more lagan.
    No more comment for this article. Smarty go ahead with this CA and face the consequences and keep on blaming roylist.

  44. If we don’t support the King, everything that Dehru said will continue to take place. We need the King to be back.

  45. wagle… why can’t the SPAM thugs just go ahead and form a government so that we can at least assume that while, if we were to believe what you write in your spin zone is true, the royalists are trying to thawrt the elections, the terrorist and corrupt thugs are at least serious about holding the elections.. or do you see a royal plot in the delay that is taking place in forming the government… stop being an ass licker and answer the hard questions…honestly, this time!!

  46. Neil.. I agree with what you are saying but I am unclear if it is this government that prepares for the CA or is it the government that will soon (hopefully but very unlikely) be formed including the Maoists ( I hope minus the Maoists MP that carries gun into the parliament)? and why is there such a long delay in forming the government.. doesn’t it indicate that the eight goups of thugs are very happy with the status quo that they are enjoying without having to face the ballot? I can sense a restlessness in the Maoist who are very keen to lay hands on some of the key portfolios but I can also sense some insecurity on their part as they themselves know that if the interim government is formed soon, the situation on the ground may not change that dramatically and they too will join the list of asaksham… this time, officially!!

  47. Wagle and Janawad (whoever you may be),
    I AM VERY CONCERNED WITH THE COMMENT OF JANAWAD CALLING FOR VIOLENCE IN THIS BLOG. PLS REMOVE IT IMMEDIATELY.

    And for people like Janawad, I dont thing you have the right to make such comments.

    WHETHER YOU LIKE DEUBA OR NOT, Deuba is ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR LEADERS OF NEPAL AND HAS TWICE BECAME PRIME MINISTER BY WINNING THE MAJORITY VOTE OF PARLIAMENT. He is also the President of Nepali Congress (Democratic). What he said currently is a frank comment based on ground reality !!!

    The fact that Wagle is a supporter of Koirala faction of Nepali Congress does not mean that he can allow such violence inciting comments on his blog.

    If your website doesnt promote violence, then you should moderate the comment of Janawad and remove it from your side.

    If some people are using your website to incite violence, then isnt it your respoonsibilty moderate such comments?
