Nepal: Prolonged political mess bodes ill for China : One of the State Councilor of China, Yang Jiechi preferred not to make his scheduled visit to Kathmandu. This must have meaning. But why he cancelled his visit? Is it that Jiechi concluded “it was futile to visit Nepal now being governed by former bureaucrats and headed by a non-political persona allegedly elevated by foreign powers hostile to Chinese establishment?
Nepal: Beijing diplomatic feat? : China’s diplomatic acumen remains to be tested. Time begins now. And how Delhi twists the arms of the Maoists party through her “yes men” will be no less than interesting to observe. Arm twisting is for sure. Rest assured. All in all, Beijing and Delhi may meet soon in Kathmandu, analysts guess.
Nepal: US excitement! : Now the question come to the mind of the analysts as to whether President Carter had landed in Nepal to encourage the Nepali population to embrace the poll or had he come to Nepal to exert (undue) pressure on Nepal government to ease the presumed restrictions imposed on the Tibetan refugees stationed in Nepal?
Nepal: Reconciliation option : As politics never goes straight so the former Nepal sovereign may have assured Indian regime that Mohan baidya’s faction will not create any havoc inside India by aligning with the Indian radicals. Could have been a verbal assurance. K. P. Oli’s meet with Dr. Karan Singh in Delhi can’t be dismissed. To recall, Oli was against the second uprising. By extension, he was with the King then.
Nepal: Army Institution is lone saviour : Attention new CoAS Mr. Rana! Nation counts now on you and your highly professional institution only. After all the nation-state must be saved from the likely situation of a civil war.
Nepal: Paradigm shift In South Asian politics : But it will be an arduous task for Beijing to get a reliable and stable partner in Nepal for reasons Beijing understands better. Nepal is Beijing’s headache and will remain for long time to come. Yet the search is in progress. China is everywhere now in the region with Pakistan as its Israel as claimed by a high level Chinese political authority recently.
Nepal: High voltage conflict approaching : Nepali ailments right began from the very day when some its own leaders rushed to Delhi and signed the India drafted 12 point treaty which was nothing but a structured ploy to annihilate Nepal by making the Nepalese to fight with their own brethren.
Nepal: Who is responsible Your Excellency? : This infuriated Dr. Man Mohan Singh to the extent that upon meeting King Gyanendra he even posed a direct uncomfortable question to the King. (Leaked by some media men who were in Dhaka and were the preferred ones of King Gyanendra). Look what he said to the King and how the King responded. “Your Majesty! Why are you excessively inclined towards China?” The King said, (sic) “Who is responsible for this Your Excellency? You have pushed me to the wall”?
Nepal: Reconciliation with whom? : With King being deliberately sidelined from the national scene, the reconciliation theory remains incomplete as Mr. Gurung, if one were to recall, had greeted and read out the first congratulatory message sent to Nepal restored parliament by the then Indian parliament speaker-Mr. Somnath Chaterjee.
