On Maoist "Roundtable Conference"

Update: Update: In a sudden development, the Maoists have postponed their “roundtable conference” that they had planned to start today in Kathmandu. In a press statement, Maoist central leader Ram Bahadur Thapa informed that the round-table conference has been called off until further notice.”The September 12, 2007 round-table conference has been called off for some time. The new date for the conference will be announced soon.” “The conference has been called off because of lack of enough homework,” said Mohan Baidhya ‘Kiran’.

Just like Gyanedra dismissed democracy to “restore democracy”, Prachanda is putting the Constituent Assembly election at risk “to make sure the election happens”. Prachanda’s Roundtable Conference reminds Gyanedra’s Municipal elections

It is generally agreed that Maoists and Monarchy are two opposing poles in a political world. Nepal is not an exception because the Maoists are one of the most vocal enemies of the feudal institution and tradition. Many might not believe but I see certain similarities between the Maoists and Monarchy in Nepal. Prachanda and Gyanendra, leaders of two opposite gangs, share same way of functioning. Remember Gyanendra dismissed democracy in 2005 to, ironically, strengthen it? Now see what Prachanda is doing: putting the Constituent Assembly election at risk to make sure the election happens. Do I have to mention that both persons and their respective gangs firmly believe in force and they have deep disregard to the public opinions. After all, both believe in dictatorship: one of a palace chief, the other of a Maoist party chief. Continue reading On Maoist "Roundtable Conference"

Transparent Negotiations and CA Elections

Negotiations become firm and indisputable only if the process has the consensus of all parties…The reactionaries are attempting to threaten the solidarity of EPA….However Maoist’s attitude will show up soon how honest they are with their commitment to democracy.

By Prakash Bom

One of the most sensible and intelligent strategies for the successful CA elections that EPA leaderships and the cabinet can adopt is how to minimize their own tactless and undemocratic practice that give scope for reactionary forces to recoil. EPA must have firm solidarity for the CA elections so that they all can go together to the poll to achieve the common goal- establishing Federal Democratic Republic.

If the approach is democratic then it is reasonable and acceptable. The negotiations will backfire or break even if it has in good intension skipped the consensus of all parties involved. Negotiations become firm and indisputable only if the process has the consensus of all parties. If the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction had consulted all members of EPA prior to final agreement with MPRF, the Maoists would not have chance to backfire; and if MPRF chairman had persuaded the members of his party, some of the board members of MPRF would not have revolted against the negotiation. Though the Maoist party has denounced the negotiation procedure their outright objection of the 22 points agreement reflects their resentment against the successful movement of MPRF.
