Kathmandu: The Nepalese population who were duped by the 12 point New Delhi imposed agreement must now have come to their original senses. But have they?
The grand design as to why the 12 point was imposed on Nepal through the kind courtesy of the Indian establishment with the pleasing approval of the Indo-pendent leaders, late Girija babu primarily (rest in eternal peace), has become crystal clear by now.
The 2005 November agreement not only tore apart this country but also did away with the traditional values that we have had since times immemorial. We are fighting with each other.
Yet, the Indian regime deserves deep appreciation in that Nepal has now a new His Majesty the King from adjoining Patliputra, Bihar.
The now sidelined King Gynanedra has been replaced by His Majesty the King Jayant Prasad Srivastava who has wielded some inherent powers which very freshly allowed him to preside over an exclusive Nepali party meet, last Wednesday.
Sauta Ko Ris Ley Poi Ko Nak Katnu...
It has been reported that, in effect authentically claims Madan Regmi, Chairman Pracahanda had invited Ambassador Jayant Prasad to Chair the Nepali meet. HM King Jayant is not at fault.
Professor Lok Raj Baral though takes the whole affair as an intervention but prefers to take it as an “invited intrusion”. To some extent, Prof. Baral has made some efforts to shield Jayant babu. The JNU connection perhaps.
However, whether the Ambassador Jayant Babu should have participated in the said meet or not could be a matter of intense debate, however, universally accepted diplomatic decency demanded that he should have ignored the meet but the temptation to tame and twist the Nepali politics forced him to attend the meet. Analysts advise him to turn the pages of diplomatic conducts. History and diplomacy are two different domains.
Nepali sovereignty has come to the foot path thanks the impotence of the current day junk Nepali leaders.
India did what it had to. This could just be a trailer only. The entire film is yet to be screened. This also speaks of the impending tasks that India will accomplish in Nepal in the days ahead. The Constitution deadline is approaching fast. Thanks HM King Jayant has left for New Delhi perhaps to seek further instructions on how to further foment troubles in Nepal which is already in a trou8bled state as of today.
The naked Indian intervention in Nepali affairs by the otherwise sober Indian diplomat, Jayant Babu-now Nepal King, will go a long way in determining the fate of the Nepali politics by the former British Colony authority now posted in Kathmandu. A sober diplomat? Sood comparatively was far better.
In some way or the other, Ambassador Jayant Prasad has far exceeded the diplomatic limits much in the similar manner to what his respected father, Ambassador Bimal Prasad used to act during his tenure as Indian Ambassador in Nepal as back as in the early 1990s. (As told by the security men posted at the gate of then Nepal Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala).
Though Bimal babu simply irritated the then Nepal Prime Minister by entering uninvited into the official residence of Nepal PM every morning to have his morning tea yet he never presided over any meet meant exclusive for the Nepali leaders. Inside and secret penetration must have been though. Girija was just a rubber stamp.
One real King gone, Long Live the new King from Bihar. Congratulations your Majesty. Coronation ceremony is what is being awaited by the common men.
What is more than painful is that none of the parties have so far condemned Jayant’s direct attack on Nepali sovereignty. Analysts guess as to when they themselves invited this intervention and thus there is no question to condemn the Indian highhandedness. Albeit, a small section of the Nepali intellectuals plus some students have registered their displeasure and have in a subdued voice condemned the act of intervention. Could have been a sponsored protest. Mercenaries after all.
This perhaps speaks of the Nepali slavery that has been imposed upon the Nepalese to which their respective leaders, people’s representatives, in turn feel honoured to have already become a slave of the one which remained ever under foreign rule.
British India left, Italy governs Indian Union unfortunately.
No qualms. Instead, Nepal’s Royal institution has once again been revived but unfortunately replaced by an alien national.
Bear with such insults. More remains in the pipeline. Beginning of the end of Nepal is round the corner. But repose trust on the new King. He will definitely save us all.
Interestingly, the Chinese envoy is missing. Is it that he left for Beijing to allow the Indian regime to penetrate in Nepali affairs? Is there any sort of tacit understanding in between Delhi and Beijing?
Even if Beijing is a partner to this design, as it was during 2005-6 Nepal uprising, then ultimately it is Beijing which is the prime loser in Nepal. Things will become known more to the Beijing regime time permitting. Beijing waits for great debacle in Nepal which will certainly decrease its clout in this part of South Asia gradually. The spill over effect in the region will have to be watched. The slide will be more visible when China will greet Nepal Prime Minister. Nepal PM advisor Devendra Poudel is currently in Beijing to finalise Nepal PM visit to Beijing. Perhaps he has returned.
The nation is in a mess which is taking newer dimensions with each passing day.
