This piece talks about rumours that are flowing through Kathmandu air in the past couple of days. These are not verified. Believe at your own risk.
If we are to believe one of those countless rumours that are flowing through the air of Kathmandu, Maoists will not lead the government. Maoists will not get majority in the CA (out of 602 seats) which means non-Maoist forces will be in majority in the CA. In that case, one can question, how can Maoists, who will be in minority, lead the government? What if all non-Maoists forces come together? Rumourmongers believe that such is the idea that is being quietly pushed by the countries that will have very difficult time in seeing a Maoist led government in Nepal.
In that case, we believe, Nepal will face a disaster. Not to give Maoists chance to lead the government even when they have won in such an impressive fashion means blatantly ignoring the spirit of the people’s verdict. The people of Nepal, accept it or not, gave Maoist the verdict to lead the government. To bent that verdict in any other way will only destabilize Nepal.
Another rumour is that suspended king Gyanendra is going to issue a statement demanding for a referendum. Rumourmongers believe that in such a statement Gyanendra will also state his secret agreement with the seven parties and the Maoist regarding his future (which will definitely say that the agreement was there to continue with monarchy.)
