So the General Rules Out Coup. Good!

Any coup in Nepal would be not only suicidal for the coup-supporting high ranking officials of the Army but also against the Nepali peoples’ verdict.

Today’s copy of the Kathmandu Post, at my desk, welcomed me as I returned from a six-day long trek in the Helambu region of Nepal. A single column, front page piece titled “Army chief rules out coup” caught my attention rather than the six-column wide, double-decker headlined main news of the Post. The trip was superb, though I didn’t see many syau jasta gala bhayeki soltinis and Apple in the Helambu which I had expected to see in the region but I must confess the news item made my day. If General Katawal really meant (he has no other option really) what he said, then I appreciate his statement. Such an act would be not only suicidal for the coup-supporting high ranking officials of the Army but also against the Nepali peoples’ verdict. That wouldn’t last long too. The people of Nepal are much more aware, politically and socially, than they were a decade ago. They don’t want others to take care of their affairs; they want to do that themselves. If the situation demands, they are ready to state another April Revolution. Yes, the Maoists are brat. That’s almost proved. But that doesn’t mean the democracy should be a casualty of their foolishness. The main news of the past is bleak (Dashain blessings fail to break political impasse) but I hope the situation will improve in the coming days. I know not all people like these leaders with an open heart but my view is that there is no other option than having complete faith on the political leadership and political parties. The Post news on General’s remark:

SANKHUWASABHA, Oct 23– Chief of Army Staff General Rookmangud Katawal has ruled out the possibility of an army coup. Talking to representatives of civil society at the Amardal Battalion at Khandbaari barracks Monday, General Katawal said, “The Nepal Army (NA) will never stage a coup in the country.” Dismissing speculations that the army might stage a coup, he said that it was all just a rumor. He also said that the NA was already a part of the democratic system and would abide by that system. According to Red Cross district president Saroj Bajracharya, Katawal expressed firm commitment to obeying the orders of the democratic government and said “The NA will follow the letter and spirit of government orders.” (more)

  1. This is good that the army has clarified the statement which was made without any base or evidence.

    Let’s see what the people who brought this statement have to say to defend their original statement.

  2. Gen Katuwal,

    You and your army is the only hope for we nepalese.

    Now the iron is red hot, strike it with your full force.

    These corrupt leaders need a break in Jail.

    Only you can save our country from being ruined further.

    We need you and your army.

  3. As a democracy loving people its good.
    But the way parties are fearing election is not a good sign.
    Fearing election means you don’t want to face people.

    Election is the only way out for the current state of anarchy.
    Whatever process is opted for the election is applied for all the
    party. Some system is likely to favor one party while the other
    system to other party. But, that will be reflected in few percentage.
    Its not that you don’t have public support and go changing system and
    you will get majority seats. Never……………..
    But, all parties are locking horns on these petty issues.
    I) First on the eve of election Maoists made foolish move to run away from election.
    II) Then NC is opposing proportional demand.
    iii) UML is simply watching

    All the party should oppose Maoists demand saying this is not the way you
    change your demand time and again.

    Fully proportional system will take away right of people to the candidate of their
    choice. The politician mostly hated by public can also enter the house.
    Not a good point

  4. People are wakka…with these crook leaders. Now people are questioning themselves whether they are sovereign or not ? Girija, Makune and Prachanda are worsening the situation and moving toward anti-democracy and more civil war.

    Look at the price hike. Only the rich people can bear the new gasoline price but not the poor. These leaders are the one who were against the price hike during the royal regime but now they are following the same. It means all those criticism of price hike during the royal regime was political agenda only, but not in favour of the poor people.

    Another case, if king try to disrupt the CA election then the house can abolish the monarchy but what about spam disrupting the CA election ?

    People are being made prisoners by these three crooks brahmin leaders.

  5. The army should also be one of the forces in the nation. If there is no army then god knows what the maoists are going to do. Their actions even right now are not controlled, and in the situation where the army is not there, then the maoists will certainly go on a rampage.

    So, the army should stay at its current stage.

  27. The very fact that the COAS giving repeated clarifications that the army does not intend to plot a coup has elements of his frail intention sticked from within. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that the hardcore royalists and a section within the army are always in favour of a coup. But the Nepalis’ democratic aspirations and awareness level is so high that every time they attempt a coup, they will lose more of their authorities in the aftermath of a public uprising. Bring on a coup and Gyanendra will be driven out of the country come another April. No ultra rightists, no ultra leftists please.

  28. One Afghani wrote – Extremism have changed our lives into hell.

    ‘Life is precious’. This is what I have heard and read my whole life. Of course, every human being should be respected and every life should be saved. But then came this era of terror in which the human life is not considered worth of anything.
    In Afghanistan, it started after King Zahir Shah was removed from power. A series of fighting and killings started after that which is still continued. In Pakistan, it started the same day when Jihad began against Russian forces in Afghanistan. Pakistan was front-line ally in that war as it is now also front-line ally in the war against terror.
    In fact, Pakistan has acted and would act as front-line ally in any war started by United States of America. In the war against Russians, America and Pakistan gave too much weapons and money to the extremist elements that later killed Afghans mercilessly.
    After America won the war and left Afghanistan, the extremist warlords fought each other and created a big cause in the country. They killed thousands of innocent people in the name of Sharia and Islam and then America attacked Afghanistan to crush them.
    This attack caused a new war in the region. The front-line allies have other states within them. The other stated fully back terrorist organisations who are trained there and then come to Afghanistan for attacks.
    They kill people in broad daylight, abduct tribal elders, journalists, professor, teachers, doctors, engineers and other skilled people and then, after declaring them “spies”, behead them.
    Extremism created more extremism. So now the whole region is under extremist and militant rule. No one is safe. Suicide attacks and blasts are every where. Kidnappings and beheadings are every day routine.
    The only thing you can say about this situation is that it is not life. And if you call it a life, then I must say that life was never so fearful.

  31. Dear All,

    Coup is what we need againts these fucking seven party fools, everybody knows that these fools will destroy these county within next six month and fucking moron who is critisizing army will beg them to step over and save the country. Stupid Moron says that Nepal army could not defeat ill equipped maoist, he needs to study art of war, it is alway difficult to defeat the guerilla in conventional way as shown in Vietnam war and Afghantistan war and now in Iraq, much better equipped amrican are having very difficult time controlling the area. In camprison Nepal army did quite well during the war but they were not given support by parties and even then ruling elits fully, they were asked to fight with one hand tied. Guerilla war can be wiped out if they can get peoples support and better intlligence and if needed unqulified brutality where there will be no mercy to enemy. For example in Malaysia war and recently in Chechen war in Russia. This time war starts many people will have not option but to support army and army will have no option but to supress the maoist brutally and this time war will be like real war, no mercy. Thanks to stupid rotten leaders this what our country’s future is. I comletely blame not the maoist ( as they are doing what they are supposed to be doing) but stupid leaders of SPA and meddeling dhoti indians. ( who always get kick in the asshole as in Sri Lanka and even their own punjab). All those who stupidly marched in so called april revolution Enjoy Naya Nepal.

But then what do you expect, regardless of what Katuwal says, this country HAS been under a coup for the past 18 months or so— by SAP-M supported by YCL.
