People on the Street Chant a New Slogan: Down With Maoist

A reporter’s diary detailing pre-election atrocities of the Maoist in far west Nepal in Blogmandu.

Anti Maoist Protest in Koteshwor
Residents of Koteshwor organized an anti-Maoist protest rally today by blocking traffic.

Eye on Maoist: Even after the surprise victory in the April 10 CA polls, the Maoist hasn’t changed its wartime behavior of intimidation, abduction and killings. The Maoist is increasingly looking like a criminal gang with its YCL engaged in organized efforts to take law into their hands. Here are a few examples of how Maoist (or YCL) are engaged in criminal activities:

Maoist cadres kill a capital resident: Maoist cadres killed Ram Hari Shrestha, a resident of Koteshwar in the Capital, after abducting him two weeks ago. The Maoist conceded that the Shrestha, who was also the chairman of local Tole development committee, was killed after abduction by his own party activists. Locals of Koteshwar disrupted the traffic in the area today afternoon following the airing of the news. They shouted slogans like Maobadi murdabad [Down with Maoist]

Anti Maoist Protest in Koteshwor

The Maoist admitted that Shreshta was abducted from Santimarga in the capital on April 27 and taken to Maoist third division cantonment at Shaktikhor in Chitwan district and was killed on May 10 and thrown into Narayani River. A group of Maoists led by Maoist third division commander Kali Bahadur Magar ‘Bibidh’ had abducted Shrestha from Santimarga on charge of stealing Rs 1.7 million from their room. Maoist cadres including Bibidh had been staying at Shrestha’s house on rent.

The Maoist cadres told Ramila, who reached Shaktikhor today to bring back Shrestha, that after he was severely beaten up.

Three brigade commanders of the Maoist third division– Ganga Ram Thapa, Keshab Adhikari and Govinda Batala—thrashed him to death, Superintendent of Police at Chitwan District Police Office Puskal Raj Regmi informed. The Maoists have handed over Batala to the district police, while the other two are at large.

YCL forces 4 headmasters to resign in Gorkha:

[This report by Damodar Neupane] The Maoist youth wing YCL has compelled at least four school headmasters in Gorkha district to resign from their posts and the Maoist youth wing is forcing other headmasters affiliated with the Nepal Teachers’ Association (NTA) to follow suit. Among them, one headmaster has been compelled to resign from the teaching profession itself, according to the Nepali Congress.

Toya Raj Gurung, headmaster of Gyan Jyoti Secondary School at Lapsibot VDC, a two-day walk from district headquarters, resigned as headmaster and teacher on Wednesday.

Similarly, school headmasters Indra Kumar Mishra of Himalaya Secondary School at Simjung VDC, Jani Ghale of Himalaya Secondary School at Barpak VDC and Raghunath Adhikari of Chaturmala Secondary School have also resigned, allegedly following pressure from the YCL.

“I resigned as I did not like the activities of the YCL. The YCL harassed teachers, other staff and the management committee of the school. I did not like that, so I resigned,” Gurung told the Post over the phone.

Gurung, a supporter of the NTA, which is close to Nepali Congress, further said that he thought resigning was better than watching the pathetic situation at the school. Gurung is a teacher for 18 years.

The YCL was reportedly angry with Gurung since May 30 when the latter closed the school to protest the YCL beating up school teacher Bishnu Dutta Adhikari that day.

A junior teacher close to Maoists has been appointed headmaster of Himalaya Secondary School at Simjung VDC. Rup Lal Shrestha, a lower secondary-level teacher, has succeeded Mishra as headmaster. Mishra, who hails from Rautahat, had been with the school for 12 years.

The Nepali Congress said that the Maoist youth wing has exerted pressure on many school management committees that are close to the Nepali Congress to also resign. The Nepali Congress has accused the Maoists of forcing chairpersons of school management committees to accept the resignations of the headmasters.

Maoist district secretary Prakash, however, said that he did not have information about forced resignations of headmasters.

YCL beats up teacher: Meanwhile, the YCL beat up Rameshwor Pokharel, a math teacher at Nepane Secondary School, Kerabari, after accusing him of campaigning for the Nepali Congress during CA elections. Besides, Pokharel, who has sustained serious injuries to his head, has been warned to leave the school. Pokharel has been teaching at the school for the last three years and was elected president of the Free Students’ Union at Gorkha Campus on behalf of the Nepal Students’ Union.

YCL cadres thrash 2 teachers in Madi, Chitwan

[This report by Dipendra Baduwal] Intervening over a disciplinary issue at a school, Young Communist League (YCL) cadres allegedly beat up and injured two school teachers of Someshwor Higher Secondary School at Madi of the district Wednesday (14 May). The teachers- Krishna Prasad Pathak and Ramnath Tiwari- were badly injured.

According to the victims, YCL cadres led by area in-charge, Chandra Bahadur Darai, turned up at the school, responding to a complaint of eighth grader Shankar Chhetri and beat them up severely. Chhetri, who was scolded by teachers a few days ago after he was found bringing a nunchaku –a martial art weapon — to school and also for disturbing the class, had reportedly called the YCL men.

Prior to this, Chhetri and his classmate Dan Bahadur Magar had been involved in fisticuffs. According to school teachers, Magar, following their dispute, had called his brother to the school and beat up Chhetri on Tuesday. In response, Chhetri had also beat up Magar with the help of other friends while the latter was returning home the same day.

Following the “gang fight”, the teachers felt insecure and also requested the school administration to sort out the problem. “But even as the principal assured he would settle the dispute, we were beaten up by YCL men,” said an injured Pathak. The incident occurred even as the Principal Arjunanda Adhikari made both the students apologize on Tuesday itself.

“YCL cadres showed up at the school in the early school hours and beat us up with sticks while we were reading the newspaper on the ground,” said Tiwari. Pathak is receiving treatment at Bharatpur Hospital while Tiwari was taken to Medical College as his condition was serious, the Hospital source said.

5 brothers assaulted over land dispute in Pokhara: YCL Cadres assaulted five brothers at Pame in Pokhara on Wednesday (14 May). Krishna Bahadur Adhikari, along with his four brothers –Min Bahadur, Bam Bahadur, Bharat Bahadur and Narayan Bahadur of Kaskikot– was beaten by around 60 YCL cadres over a land related dispute. Of the injured, Min Bahadur is in critical condition. He is undergoing treatment at Western Regional Hospital in Pokhara. He has sustained serious injuries on his face and chest.

“As we reached Pame to rescue my brother upon learning that Krishna was assaulted by YCL cadres, they attacked us with bamboo sticks,” said Min Bahadur. YCL cadres also vandalized Min Bahadur’s motorbike. According to Krishna Bahadur, YCL cadres attacked him and his brothers for tilling their land at Pame, claiming that the land actually belonged to one Tek Bahadur. District police did not make any arrest citing that details of the incident were not substantial.

    Where did these maoist thugs get 17 lakhs that has connection with the murder of Ram Hari shrestha? It clearly indicates that these YCL thugs are involved in all sorts of bank robbery, kidnapping, and intimidation to earn money.

    No one, but Girija Prasad Koirala. This shameless, brainless, faceless, merciless, visionless, and artless creature, Girija prasad koirala did nothing to maintain law and order in the country besides saving his premier position and having romantic relation with Nona Koirala.

    when there is a difference of opinion it must not be a civil war, all examples of hope spain, argentina, nicaragua are relative.
    One can only learn from their mistakes the mistakes were a focus on politics instead of education.
    Politics and power are always a no.
    mafia and ceausescu hitlers must be killed not the nation entirely.
    Nepal is tricky. now the people got to power by violence.
    so we can expect the same of what we had until the next elections guaranteed good for hospitals and funeral companies.
    Unless there is a government that can differentiate between personal gain and what is good for Nepal. Maoism is bad for nepal prachandra and baburam are good for nepal but we all feel sorry for the destruction of the country by former and present power.
    But India represses in a similar way and they have affluent lifestyle, Italy is so wonderful and they have more garbage than the entire world they cannot rid of.
    There are no good countries there are no good people just good rain.
    Truth however will come out.

    This is the result of increasing the size of the party through royalist in the name of nationalism. This is their response before entering into the government, now imagine how they work after leading the government. Don’t worry, if this continuous, the same time will take them to step down, as it was taken when they step up………….

    Down with Maoists. They will never do good to people after following and dreaming of implementing the failed practices of MAO…Why should they demand USA to omit them from list???
    Does it support Prachanda morally to be president when his party is becomming the murder day by day of its own people???

    maoist is doing exactly what people are expecting. they gonna the government soon but still repeating the same kind of savage activities. Maoist is dictator and they will continuely doing evil activites in nepal. Finally they will make nepal like afganisthan where people has to run off get in the house and lock the door when Maoist pass by.
    I do not believe maoist won the election. Either they scare the people to vote for them or Their stupid YCL put vougus vote in the ballot and help to win their leader. i bet you anything this was not fair election. Nepali citizen won’t choose autocracy over democracy.
    i am not saying king is right he is another dictator as worst as maoist

    I am not surprised by the news coz we cannot expect better behavior from them. They were terrorist, they are criminal, and they will remain same in the future. Majority of the Nepalese people has taken the wrong decision through the CA election. It is very much unfortunate for Nepal, the gang of killers going to rule the country. I am not only sure but confident that they can not drive the country successfully but they will push the country towards poverty and full of uncertainity. I would like to request the world forum to not to recognize the government, if formed under the leadership of killer Maoist Party of Nepal. I only remember “Morning Shows” the day. My heartfelt condolence to the beraved family and pray for the peace of the departed soul. I will always with you guys…
