Will CA Elections be Held or Postponed for the Third Time?

Contributed by: Bishnu Pathak, PhD and Chitra Niraula

The concern of people of all strata in Nepal is whether the election of Constituent Assembly (CA) will be held on April or postponed again. There is a huge political dispute and debate going on among the political parties. The international community is also unsure of the condition and has taken the stand of ‘wait and see’. The civil society too is clinging to the thin thread of CA polls. The PM Girija Prasad Koirala was saying that he would resign if CA is not held and his basis to work would be finished 56 days prior to the first CA schedule (mid-June 2007). However, the Election Commission (EC) issued a statement that the polls would require 110 days for preparation and could not meet the deadline, which led to postponement for the first time. People believe that the statement was put forward through the EC because to save the image of NC (particularly the PM). The second date fixed was Nov 22, 2007, which was postponed because of the debates instigated by two issues raised by Maoists: declaration of republic and full proportionate electorate system.

The issues have settled to some extent. Dramatically, this time, the Interim Government finally declared again the date (April 10, 2008) for the CA polls for the third time. The EC following the instructions of the govt. has issued the schedule: requested the political parties to submit their close list for proportionate election by Feb 20, 2008, correct list by, Feb 21-27, withdrawal or corrected list submission from Feb 28 to Mar 5, verification of candidates March 27-13 and March 28 for final list of candidates and provision of election symbols. Similarly for first-pass-the-post the list of candidates to be submitted by Feb 25, complaint lodging by Feb 27, withdrawal of candidacy by Feb 29, final list publication by EC on March 1, and provision of symbol on March 2 and 36 days have been provided for election campaigning.

This article deals with empirical study of the CA being a critical issue for the peace process focusing on opportunities and challenges.

Opportunities

The peace process is slowly moving ahead, although at the snails’ pace, through 12-point Understanding, 8-point Agreement, Comprehensive Peace Accord, Arms and Army Management Agreement, establishment of UNMIN, Declaration of Interim Constitution, 23-point Understanding, etc. as milestones. The confident-building measures amongst the SPA has been built-up for the CA elections reaffirmed, consensual decision-making procedures has been reestablished, the Maoist came-back into the government. There has been a thin ray of hope that CA elections will be held within 2064 B.S. (2007/8). Greater numbers of ethnic and regional representatives have been ensured into the 23-point understanding.

The Maoist Ex-combatants are confined in cantonments. UNMIN has verified the combatants and reduced the number to 19,602 out of 31,318 (62.59%) for reintegration and rehabilitation. They are ready for mainstreaming in the peace and progress of the country.

Maoists are conducting their Central Committee meeting to prepare for the polls and have changed from bullet to ballot. The end of the unitary system of government and declaration of federal structure is a step towards inclusivity of all caste/ethnicity and cultures.

Agreements have been reached by the government with Dalits, Janajatis (ethnicities/nationalities), Madhesi, and so on to integrate and concretize their representation.

The SPA jointly organized a mass meeting in Kathmandu for the first time and declared to host similar meetings in six other places.

Challenges

• Devoid of political process: The priority task in the post conflict period is to bring the rebel forces to mainstream political process. The peace process – advocacy, training, skill enhancement, etc. – in Nepal has traveled two years, but nothing concrete has been done in this regard by national or international agencies/forces. The lack of this could cause hindrances to participate in the CA polls. Maoists also have no solid program in relation to augment the competency political process of its leaders and cadres, and rank and files. Their bullet trend is still lingering in their mentality, which might overshadow the ballot.

• Integration of the PLA with Army: The Chief of Army Staff, Rookmangad Katwal, prior to departing to China on Jan 6, 2008 said that the Dharma (duty) of Nepali Army to adhere to the force having the people’s mandate, which should not be influenced by any ‘ism’, political motivation and ideological indoctrination. Immediately upon the Army Chief ‘s return, he PM had sent his special envoy to gather information relating to the talks in New Delhi. On January 8, the PM stated in the press conference that integration of the army of a political party into national army would lead to politicalization and revolt. He further said that Maoist ex-combatants could be involved in self-employment and country’s development activities. The statements seem to emanate from deep consultations between the two. Maoist Supremo, Prachanda the following day said that his party has taken the statement by the PM immediately after the Army Chief’s statement against the spirit of the CPA in regards to the integration of PLA very seriously. He further said that the statements could have originated to create confusion among the Maoists since they were preparing for the CA polls. He added that the twice postponement of CA polls was due to NC, but was charged to Maoists and said the NC hopes that Maoists would come to the streets causing the disturbance to hold the election.

When the Army Chief returned from his visit to India, he said that there was no communication with the Army UQ in regards to integration of the Maoist ex-combatants in the Nepal Army. He was refuting Prachanda’s statement on Nov 24, 2007 at the seventh anniversary of the PLA that they were conducting meetings concerning integration with the Nepal Army.

This duet on the issues of integration has led to speculate who is powerful – the PM or the Army Chief? Which wags – whether the dog wags its tail or the tail wags the dog? Currently, the PM has declined that he ever had said so and excused that the media has not understood his ‘English’. Thus, the Army Chief looks to become the scapegoat of this dispute. All the Understandings, Agreements and Accord have not clearly spelled out about the integration of the PLA in National Army. The Part 20 of Interim Constitution (IC) under (Article 146) Interim Provision for the Combatants says that the Council of Ministers shall form a special committee to supervise, integrate and rehabilitate the combatants of the Maoist Army, and the functions, duties and powers of the committee shall be as determined by the Council.

Thus, on one hand, Maoists have been encouraging the PLA by integrating them into National Army but the government is not inclined to do so. Similarly, the government looks not in the position to take action against the Army Chief. The Army Generals who had met with Maoist leaders twice in posh hotels are not easy. Pasang, Baldev and Prabhakar, three out of four Deputy Commanders of PLA had strongly criticized the Maoist Leadership in regards to ambiguity on the issue of integrating PLA in National Army. Derailment of CA is imminent, if the issue is not solved on time.

• Insecurity: The Chief Commissioner of EC said that it is more difficult to hold the polls than in Nov 2007. On the one hand, the inhabitants of Tarai are seeking peace and security prior to elections, whereas on the other civil servants in Tarai districts are being kidnapped and killed. Since long, employees in public offices are absent from their posts. The civil servants assigned as polling officers to Tarai have said that they would not abide the instructions, and if the government puts pressure over them, they would resign. Some hill– and mountain–originated Tarai dwellers have either fled or in hibernation due to insecurity. The East-West Highway passing through Tarai is regularly being obstructed. Traders and business people in Kathmandu are being kidnapped and killed by criminal gangs. The increasing insecurity is creating environment that is against the elections.

• Parallel Government: There seems to be two governments in Nepal, one is led by Girija Prasad Koirala and the other by Prachanda. The dissatisfied senior officials of the Girija Government often venture to Prachanda’s court for support. Maoists also are providing shelter to such officials. This is evident from the center to the village. Maoists are also a party to the Girija’s government.

• Implementation of 23-point understanding: The Understanding states, “it is our first national agenda to ensure that the CA elections is held. We have already passed the decision to allow the destruction of the house completes in Chaitra, 2064.” In this statement, the parties also heartily appeal to provide service to all the political parties, civil society and people working for professional organization in order to ensure that the elections 2064. The past experience shows that understandings in the paper have not turned into reality and there are no traces of initiation of implementation of the Understanding.

• Fear of defeat: In June 2007, the Maoists were strong, but NC was not united and UML was also between them. The national and international forces suggested, particularly the NC, not to go for election. However in November 2007, after getting some support of Man Mohan Singh (Indian PM) UML was encouraged to go for election; but the Maoists were drawn back by YCL activities, and Dr. Baburam Bhattarai had publicly stated that why go for election that is sure to loose. The 22-point demands of the Maoist also played its part in deferral of the polls. The party and leaders, who have been detached from the common people, do not seem to feel the aspirations of the people whereas the people are turning against them. The civil society is also divided and passive, they are not comfortable to participate in the campaign for the polls. The NC, Maoist and UML fear that they might loose their present positions, although the Maoists seem to dive deep for the CA, as they seem to have taken CA as a stake. Maoists look ahead to other parties by announcing that their 35 Central Committee members, including Prachanda, will give their candidacy. The PM fears that his daughter might not be the first woman Head of the State if the State goes to the CA election. UML also has not expressed its fervor for the polls as earlier. Maoist political paper passed by its Central Committee stipulates double standards: the urban movement will be turned into people’s revolt if there is no timely polls. All parties are playing ‘hide and seek’ with the CA election.

• Undeclared alliances of the leftist and rightist forces for CA: The groundwork among the Communist parties and groups are underway for the CA. Similarly, the Maoists are striving for the alliance of Nationalist forces. The NC also is trying its most to collaborate with different forces such MJF, TMLP and so on.

• Madhes violent/non-violent conflict: Rajendra Mahato, Leader of Nepal Sadhbhawana Party has said that idea to hold elections with force despite the problems in the country will lead to secession. The Minister of Home has stated that the elections will be held by any means. Mahanta Thakur, Chairperosn of the recently formed Tarai–Madhes Loktantrik Party (TMLP), who had left NC and is still close to it, said that election could not be held unless autonomous Tarai, full proportionate election system, and proportional representation of Madhesi in all State mechanisms is accomplished. Madhesi Janadhikar Forum and Adibashi Janajati Mahasangh have announced to foil the polls if the 22-points and 20-points Agreements respectively are not fulfilled. The government has taken it lightly to develop and implement the strategy to address the Madhes issues and problems, and if this procrastination is continued, Tarai would be factor to flop the polls.

• Unity among the pro-monarchial forces: The SPA has sidelined the other forces so that the pro-monarchial forces are pushed to align. The Rastriya Jana Shakti Party led by Surya Bahadur Thapa, which was separated from the Rastriya Prajatantrik Party four years ago, is becoming closer and closer to it. Other forces also are clamoring that there is a need of an alternative to the SPA.

• Political Consensus: Within two weeks of the signing of the 23-point Understanding, Girija announced Sujata Koirala, his daughter, as a Minister without Portfolio looking after PM’s office bypassing the SPA consensus. Other leaders, including NC, and parties opposed the appointment. He had proclaimed during a women’s gathering that there will be a woman PM in the coming years. As she had married a German and lived there for many years, it is a concern that she might have dual citizenship. She had spoke in a public rally the next day that the king could be an evil but not monarchy as an institution. Sher Bahadur Deuba, was called to apologies for that statement during the first joint election gathering of the SPA The trend of family or hierarchy to power is widespread in the South Asia, which is the continuation of Gandhi (ism), Bhutto (ism) and so on.

• Koirala and RAW: According to Nepal Magazine (year 8, issue 21), Girija Prasad Koirala admitted that the plane was hijacked (in 1960s) following the instructions of Rameswar Nath Kao, the then RAW Chief. He had met with a Marwadi called ‘Sharmajee’, at Mumbai, who had given him huge amount of money many times. He also said that Sharmajee traded in gold and uranium. Once police in Mumbai held Sharmajee’s delivery and Girija was called to free it. He had accepted that he had ordered to print and circulate counterfeit Indian currency. India had pressured Girija repeatedly to reduce the seat of first pass the pass and increase that of proportionate. Shyam Sharan, ex-Ambassador of India had proposed 40% for direct and 60% for proportionate as opposed to Jimmy Carter’s. As a final effort, India sent Ashok Chaturbedi, Current RAW Chief, to Nepal on December 22, 2007, who met with prominent figures including Girija to pressure on it. This time, they were not able to disobey RAW and the following day the 23-point Understanding was reached. Maoist leaders also met with them and the forces opposing Indian interference were quiet this time. There is only one chance to hold the CA election, if RAW puts sufficient pressure over him.

Conclusions

Nepal’s peace process would reach at the tip of a crevice if the recent 23-point Understanding between Maoist and SPA is not taken as a guiding principle to conclude the CA polls. The government will not only loose national and international credibility but also the tie amongst the SPA would break up. The PM’s moral and political basis for remaining in the post will collapse. Maoists will turn to People’s Revolt and the pro-monarchial forces will come to the forefront as an alternative to SPA. The Tarai volcano will burst and lead to secession. In an overall, there is very less possibilities for CA polls, because Nepal and Nepali people have not seen the leadership that marches with the advancement of time. Since the Popular Movement II, people are far ahead of the political leadership. The change will only become a reality when the awareness of the people is absorbed by the leadership. If the leadership lags behind the change, there is the risk of displacement of leadership. Jasari surya lai hatkela le rokna sakinna, tyasari jana chahana lai pani rokna sakinna (people’s zest and zeal could not be blocked just as the sun rays could not be stopped by palms).

The successful, free and fair, CA polls could free the country from the clutches of the SPA. Nepal will be in reality a country common to all the ethnicities, nationalities and classes. Free and fair election is the common agenda of the country. The successful CA polls is moral and strategic victory of Maoists albeit it looses the seats. The Federal Structure Republic and CA polls with proportionate representation are the outputs of the Maoist’s sacrifice and struggle. UML also agreed to both these agenda feeling the people’s veins. The Maoists and UML dragged the NC to where it is now with huge difficulties. There is a chance for Communist’s majority if the Maoists and UNL forms an alliance, their first antagonist will be NC and then the nationalist forces. There is a chance for the turning point of history in Nepal as the communists in different countries like Guatemala, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Venezuela, etc. have taken liberal stance and ascended to power through elections.

  1. Election can be held on 1o April. Any one doubts that will provide excuses to those who want to avoid polls. Secttions of international community and UNMIN must not allow misgiving to become a self fulfilling prophecy.

    Of course, it wont be as smooth as a referendrum in Switzerland , where people cast their ballots in the post office on their way to work.Our election are sure to messy. Election will provide and many of pending demands for identity and representation can be debated and addressed in the elected assembly.

  2. Anyone who thinks that the CA polls will be held must be the biggest fool on this planet. First of all, all these 330 stupid, people’s blood-sucker, nominated MPs do not want CA election to be held because they know that they will loose their monthly salary of over Rs 50,000 if CA election holds in April. They just want to prolong the life of this interim parliament.

    When sun rises in the morning, then we don’t need to get together to figure out whether it is day or night. Likewise, it is pointless to discuss whether there will be a CA election in April. The answer is NO WAY, BUDDY!!

  4. Instead of strengthening the institution of democracy civil society activist are now acting as agent of the political parties in the extreme unconstitutional activities.

    Some members of civil society pulled out altogether from the movement because of diffirences with the political leadership, but others have not uttered a squeak against the dectorial aspirations of some leaders.

  5. Koirala is known to be concerned about his place in history. At this rate he will just be remembered as a petty manipulator who presided over the beginning of bloody and prolonged identity conflicts.

    Where dose that leave those madhesis who orgue for calm, who are shocked by the raw violence and hate politics of the extremists, and who want an institutionlised mechanism to address aspirations
    @ Weak and vulnerable, that is where. It will be more difficult to take the time message of harmony and justice outside closed doors in districts headquarters.

  6. Nepal was created by people of pahade origin. Then, these madhesi came from India to occupy our land. They should be kicked out of Terai. These madhesi in Terai are like Tamils in Sri Lanka. Just as these Tamils are demanding independent state in sri Lanka, similarly these madhesi terroists are demanding independent state in Terai. So, madhesi terroists in Terai = Tamil terroists in Sri Lanka. Most of them are Khali sisi Bottle.

  7. Pahade,
    Because of people like you, Nepal is in present condition.
    Study the history! it is pahades who invaded Terai and were oppressing them.Thats why they are turning back on us now!!
    Also, in my understanding, the present Terai is not uniform which can be denoted by Madhesi!!!!

    Wagle-ji,
    I think the theme of the blog ” United we blog” is getting blurred these days.

  8. As a matter of fact these socalled pahades also came from India except some indigenous ethnic grps and newars. So , we need to kick all the Bahuns and Chettris(read Licchavis) from Nepal as well,they surely came from India in some part of Nepal’s history, isn’t it Pahade??

  9. hope and Forever Nepali:

    Who gave right to criminals like you to kill innocent people of pahade origin in Terai? Criminals like you, Mahant Thakur , Rajendra mahato, Jwala Singh, Goit should be hanged. You will know the day people of pahade origin start killing people like you in Kathmandu and other parts of Nepal. You two are stupid bastards!! You have no brain because you two are khali sisi bottle.

  10. hope:

    You must be a mother Fc’ker because instead of condemning the criminal acts of Jwala Singh and Goit, you are inciting voilence in Terai. You have no sympathy for the people of pahade origin. you should go to hell.

  11. hope:

    I am pretty sure people like you were born in a brothal house because you do not want unity among all nepali. You are a paid criminal by Gyane.

  12. Pahade:
    You need to be dragged through the streets to the city square where as, Pusp, correctly pointed out need be given a history lesson. I would also add a quick geography and economics lesson to that. Thereafter you should be given 50 lashings and then be stoned by the people (madeshi people).

  13. YCL cadres:

    I urge you to kick out all these madhesi criminals like hope and Forever nepali from kathmandu and other parts of Nepal. They are the ones who are inciting violence in terai against innocent people of pahade origin. Look at they again killed an innocent civil servant in Banke the other day.

  14. Sincere Advice to Bhudai pundit:

    Every nepali knows that you are a person who is a paltu kukur of Gyane. You are always opposed to democratic forces and have close links with murderers like Jwala singh and Goit. People like you again killed an innocent civil servant in Banke.

    You appear on this blog more than anyone else. Instead of spending most of your time on this blog, you should be doing something productive. I do not know how long Gyane can keep on paying you. Gyane will abandon you once his goal is fulfilled using people like you. Your source of income from Gyane is not permanent. So, I advise you to think seriously about your future.

  15. Greetings from South Jersey, USA.

    I can not post with confidence on the situation in your nation; however, from what I have been reading for quite some time now, it appears that the value of inclusion has been embraced by many in Nepal, and the sooner it is implemented in a new governmental structure…the better it will be for everyone.

    Take care of yourselves and good luck.

  16. Sincere Advice to Bhudai pundit:

    Every nepali knows that you are a person who is a paltu kukur of Gyane. You are always opposed to democratic forces and have close links with murderers like Jwala singh and Goit. People like you again killed an innocent civil servant in Banke.

Don’t mind , OK buddy, I am telling for your welfare?

  17. Bhudai Pundit:

    You are an asshole. Every peace-loving Nepali should ejaculate into your mouth so that you can be made straight.

  18. Bhudai Pundit:

    People like you are criminals who are killing people from hills in terai. Who gave you this right to kill people of hilly origin.

  19. I am opting for kicking out all those so called Pahades who polluted Kathmandu and surely this blog too. They came to Kathmandu from don’t know which brothel in India (you can guess from their language). You have started the killing in Hilly area and Valley , you MF’s started the barbarism and when the other party is playing the same game it’s too much for you bastards. If there is a need to eliminate criminals, it should be started from these bahuns and chettris who came to Nepal from India. You are the one who is creating much a trouble in this once peaceful land. You maoists and SPAs who are surely a traitors should be hanged in Tundikhel in front of public. And I’m sure the days are not far when this ethnic power will butcher you devils born in Maoists Cantonement .

    Feel ashamed to use such low language but some people just deserve sh*t !!

  20. Remnants of the royal regime contend that the prime minister has consented to support a military-backed civilian government headed by his daughter if the scheduled elections fail to take place again.

    Such a step would confer ex post facto legitimacy on the ‘ doctrine of necessity’ that king Gyanendra used to usurp all constitutional authority.

    Royalist hope the amity between the Shahs and Koiralas would enable the constitutional monarchy reign suprem once more.

    Sujata’s critic-and there are many-may not like it but if she can refrain spiling her chances further by not associating herself too closely with the monarchy, she may yet emerge at the top the heap to claim her father’s crown. The royal dynasty may be sidelined, but long live the democratic dynasty.

  21. BEWARE OF THESE CRIMINALS:

    BHUDAI PANDIT = HOPE = CRIMINALS WHO HAVE LINKS WITH JWALA SINGH AND GOIT AND PAID BY GYANE.

  22. hope:

    Why are you so against bahuns and chhetris? It looks like many bahuns and chhetris visited your mother in order to bring you to this world. If this is true, then it is not their fault, but your mother who allowed so many bahuns and chhetris to visit her, right?

  23. Dear observer,

    Please don’t point blame to King Gyanendra only because you don’t like him. He is a great person and a great leader ( but unfortunately ppl didn’t try to realise this fact ). Please don’t blame His Majesty the King Gyanendra without any proof. It’s not that a man is wrong only because you think he is wrong.

    King Gyanendra was at power for the nation. But you don’t believe. You are just after the blind and stupid leaders. The King asked for 3 yrs but the selfish political parties and some foreign powers didn’t let him. Political parties just kept the world in illusion with misuse of the word ‘janata’ (people). Parties have ruined our country because know already how many years they have ruled and what level of dirty cultures they have developed. But ppl like you are blind to this and just go after what your leaders say. Please use your own brain and analysis too dear observer. Don’t observe through some media if u urself is able to observe.

    By the way, I too hate Mr. Budai Pandit. He is just a nonsense animal. But please don’t blame to the King just because u don’t like him. Blame him only if you have a proof.
    Observer, observe yourself, analyse with your own judgement and know the truth. Let us unite for the country.

    Jaya jaya nepal, jaya nepali.

  25. True, not all madhesis agree with all the demands made by Yadav and recent defectors from the mainstream parties.

    The madhes itself is multi-layered, devided by cast, language,religion and ethnicity.

    Here is an opportunity to address the grievances of the sounthern plains at one ago, but the government is squandering that chance.

  26. Dear Nepali:

    I respect your opinion. But I have a question for you about King Gyanendra: It is not that I am totally biased against him. His main cause of downfall is his too much greed for money. That is why people do not believe him. Is it false that he did not raise his salary from 11 crores to 88 crores, unlike his brother late king Birendra. Is it untrue that he did not transfer late Shruti’s property to his name?
    I believe he can still regain the faith of Nepali people if he invests some of the properties he inherited from the owner of Soalttee Hotel (Princep shah) and from late King Birendra for the welfare of poor Nepalese People. If he does that, then I will start to have my respect for him. What I have observed so far about him is he lacks vision.

  27. Pusp Prasad Luitel,

    It’s very irritating that u appear so frequently. Why are u showing u being a president of GNP? A man is small when he try to show big.

    Don’t write again atleast in this column

  28. Bhudai Pandit:

    You are a real randi ko chhoro terroist who loves to kill people of hilly origion.

  29. Dear observer,

    I am nepali with small ‘n’. remember yaar.

    I too respect your thinking. But I just meant to say u not to blame like Bhudai pandit paid by Gya.. just because you don’t like the king. And don’t just write just to write as most journalist today do for a cheap rise and popularity.

    I too like the King investing some of his money to the nepali people. Let my dear King hear this.

    He initiated for the road construction in Joomla? Isn’t that?

    He put the idea of Nepal to make as a transit point (between India and China). Isn’t that? Wasn’t that a vision??

    During his direct rule, there was a type of discipline like traffic rules were obeyed (in ktm, by the way r u from kathmandu?) Now u know, how ppl go on top of buses and there is a jungle culture.
    There was a feeling of security atleast in kathmandu. He love nepali ppl. So he visited most of the places (even to very remote areas) and heared ppl’s desires and feelings. Now don’t tell that is because he had tight security. Don’t u respect that emotion of him to the ppl?

    He is the man promising to what he say. He made elections as he said (but the parties didn’t help at all). He requested so many time to parties to unite for the sake of national interests and national soverignity. Didn’t u hear when he made speeches? Or u heared with biased ears.

    Most importantly, Unlike the selfish leaders, he didn’t bow down his head before the selfish foreign powers and instead he ACCEPTED TO BOW DOWN before the nepali ppl. Doesn’t this make any value on ur thoughts? He really love Nepal and Nepali ppl man.

    And do u think everything possible like a miracle in a year of rule in such a situation of country? Do u go against a manager he has a great managing ability but just because he gets a huge salary? Thing atleast once with good in mind for the King. ( But I m NOT supporting him for having a great salary but money shouldn’t be the only thing to judge a man. There are a lot of responsiblities on the King. You know it takes a lot to look after our family n he has to look the whole nation. Aren’t u aware of that? )

    But did u answer me why u chose the parties? The dirty games and culture they practice ruin more than anything. Don’t you think so? Anyway, I also respect at what u said but it needs more dimensions for judgement. Let me tell you, I m not paid by the King hehe……. trully!!

    Let us unite for the country.

    Jaya jaya nepal, jaya nepali.

  30. hope:

    If you are so jealous of bahuns and chhetris, then you should f’ck yourself. we should not be singled out by bahuns, chhetris, newars, and other castes. After all we are all Nepali who should have right to live and move to any parts of Nepal. I think you need to grow by at least one foot.

  31. Haha so typical. This blog is a microcosm of the Nepali phyche. My comment was directed to Pahade and it’s ridiculous comments. Never was I condoning or endorsing JMTT or any other Madeshi militant group. I am confused from where people got that impression in my post. I am more shocked that people did not condemn Padahe’s attitude. Maybe it’s because most of you here think alike. What a bunch of idiots and sexual deviants ( Bhisnu). May I suggest, Bhisnu, that you sick to your freaky porn and leave political discussion to the rest of us? Just a suggestion.

    Santosh: your comment doesn’t befit your name at all.

    Wow what shallow levels of analysis. I hope this isn’t reflective of what Nepal has become.

  32. And the rest of you, who has a problem with me, gp burn some tyres and vandalize property – maybe destroy another statue.

  34. These madhesi criminals are not real nepalis, otherwise one nepali won’t kill another nepali. What is interesting is people like Bhudai pandit, hope, and forever Nepali do not speak a single word whenever someone from hilliy origin is killed by madhesi criminals like hope, Bhudai pandit, and Forever Nepali.
    I am not saying pahade is 100 % correct, but his anger is directed towards the criminals who kill people of hilly origin. I have a joint question to these three criminal minded people like Bhudai pandit, hope , and Forever Nepali: Has any people of pahade origin killed any people of madhesi origin? I do not think so.

    Just yesterday, Purna prasad Dhakal was killed by notorious criminal Jwala singh led people like Bhudai pundit, hope , and Forever Nepali. They are not real Nepali. Otherwise, they would have oppose such henious act. I am pretty sure if their citizenship are checked, it will be forfeited because they are the ones who came to Nepal obtaining illegal citizenship.
    These three criminal minded people would be devastated if Purna Prasad Dhakal were their sister’s husband. These three people sounds intellectually inferior. They are the ones who are guided by criminals like Jwala singh, goit, Mahanta thakur, and Rajendra Mahato who are planning to displace people of hilly origin from the Terai. If madhesi criminals think that people of pahade origin should leave Terai, then do these Madhesi people have right to live in Kathmandu? You three need to grow. You three do not know the importance of coexistance in maintaining peace and harmony in the society.

  35. I am definitely not agianst Bahuns and Chettris, why should I be?? I am against those MFs who in the name of those has destroyed Nepal. Look at the wordings they are using, they just don’t know how to give an argument. These illiterate bastards must be Kicked out of Nepal to restore some sanity. These sob’s has no idea how many fathers they have while they were born in maoists cantonement. Ask your mother first ,idiots!!

    It’s these sluts who started the killings in Hilly areas, then in madhes then in valley. It’s these blood suckers who have waged socalled war against Nepali people and now enjoying all the amenities of the government. And now when somebody is following their footstep and beating them in their own game these pigs get threatened. Time will come when all ethnic grps even newars from kathmandu will clean you bastards.

  36. Bhudai pandit:

    I have been trying to figure out for a long time who this Bhudai Pundit is. After reading all these comments, I have come to the following conclusion about Bhudai pundit:

    1. he must be a person of madhesi origin, possibly the follower of Jwala singh and Goit
    2. He is paid by someone to appear so frequently on this blog.
    3. He hates people who are not of madhesi origin

    You have become so infamous on this blog, so I advise you to come up with different name

  37. Guys,
    PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM ALSO FROM PAHAD ORIGIN. ALSO EITHER IN FAVOR OF MADHESIs or PAHADEs.
    But I am disgusted by people like pahade or even hope who insult others even without knowing the history.
    Come’on guys we are same Nepali brothers.
    I am too sad of people being killed in Terai!!
    But why don’t you guys figure it out that
    fighting with each other calling “pahades” and “Madhesis ” is what groups like JTMM or GOIT want to breed.

  38. People like Jwala singh and Goit are the enemies of we madhesi people. we should not be their follower because they have vested interest. They are working for someone to achieve power. They are putting life of we madhesi people in danger by killing pahade. Tomorrow, if civil wars breaks out, then both army and pahade will kill people of madhesi. So, it is wrong to kill pahade in Terai.

  39. Comprehensive excellent article.
    Plus now we have paramilitary killing maoist friends.
    Even in Spain there is terrorism. homegrown the independent crazy eta and pakistani imported they just caught 13. not good .

    What needs to be done must be done, elections were not held because of inexperience of legal process and misplaced perfectionism. Killing and looting can be foreseen no need to be a great visionary. Great emancipatory movements cannot be stopped even old clan understood that much. So cooperate with prachandra and the army they are not the enemy the enemy are the paramilitary and other terrorists now . Like in Brazil kill as you please. Stop calling each other names peace process must be implemented 10 years ago peace means education and jobs and unions the whole thing.

  40. i have very little hope that CA election will be successful. there are too many baggages that remain unsolved. the agreement to go for CA is nothing but closed door negotiation/consensus between elite politicians. it may reflect some of the aspiration of the people but its not mandated by the people. its superficial at best stands a very good chance it will fail.

  41. Who is Bhudai Pandit?:

    First of all, this animal Bhudai pandit , as correctly pointed out by observer, Bhayankar and nepali, is a low-graded, undereducated and idiot person hired and paid by someone. I feel like this stupid person is glued to the Internet connection 24 hours a day. Maybe he has been paid for 24 hours a day to perform his duties.
    Let me tell you one interesting thing about this person.
    One night was awake until 2 AM watching some movie. Then I wanted to check this blog, and someone’s comments popped up on this blog. Then, a person with the name of Bhudai Pandit replied within 5-10 minutes. Now, just imagine how busy this person is in writing comments on this blog. He also appears on this blog to give false impression that he belongs to the people of hill origin.

  42. Kiran – it makes me sad to read comments like yours and those of people u mention – observer, Bhayankar and nepali. Violence and extremism is not the way out for Nepal. Its time for some honest and all encompassing consensus between all stakeholders of this country – between people like you and me, between pahades-madhesis, bahun/chettris – dalit/janjatis, castes & religion – all for the sale of peace and progress.

    We all started fighting not because we were Madhesi/Pahade. We used to live in peace. Its few people up there who run the system who have done all this. Lets cut through their crap and do reality check ourselves, not through someone else’s vested interest lenses.

  43. “all for the ‘sale’ of peace and progress”

    I meant “all for the ‘sake’ of peace and progress”

  44. “Wow what shallow levels of analysis. I hope this isn’t reflective of what Nepal has become.”
    Punditji, it’s a lot worse, believe me. Even Kantipur and Kathmandu Post, the so-called mainstream media, are highly communal in tone, though a little less virulent in actual content.

  45. Patriot le bujhekai rahenchha kalle k comment garyo bhanne kuro. uffffff…….

    now how come i become extremist? Patriot, do u read or r u urself Bhude Pandit?? or u read comment of another Nepali who stole my nickname? i m the nepali with small ‘n’.

  46. First of all, the article tries to impose on us the Maoist’s viewpoint. It seems almost obvious that Mr. Pathak is on payroll of the Maoists. Shame on you Pathak.

    And, more shame to all of you who have degenerated into fighting with each other. Hey all! its not going to solve the problem. Stop fighting like kids, will ya.
    Ta bahun, ta rai, ta chetri, ta madhesi, ta newar – SHUT UP ALL!

    WE ARE NEPALI FIRST! WE ARE NEPALI LAST!

  47. apologies nepali – didnt mean to include ur name.

    i do disagree with ur views abt the king though.

  48. Bhayankar,
    You sorry excuses for a human being. Let me save you the trouble. Please don’t sit around, think and give that pea-sized brain of yours too much trouble.
    Let me guess… you just finished some philosophy 101 course from some 3rd class community college and now you you want to practice logic games. Well you enuich, all three of your assertions are wrong. And why the hell should I come up with a different name mofo? I’ll still dominate you with whatever name. Deal with that!

    Kiran,
    Jeez you are so witty. An animal. Wow what an insult. How long did you have to think to come up with some so brilliant? I am so offended you called me an animal. Now this might come as a suprise to a slow witted moron like yourself but the world is round! Don’t fall off your chair now. Because the world is round and it’s 2am your time it might not be 2am in another part of the world. G E T it? Let me let you come to grips with that first and then we can continue our dialogue.

    Patriot:
    Alas I think this website is degenerating into a useless tabloid.
    When I read comments from people like Kiran, Biyankar (or whatever the fcuk his name is) and others it’s just so pathetic, useless and sad.

  49. Bhudai pundit and patriot:

    It sounds like both Bhudai pundit and patriot are the two sides of the same coin. I could not understand what you two are trying to prove to the world.
