Kathmandu: Informed and intelligent analysts possess no illusion as regards the dirty and destructive politics that the almost lifetime President of the Nepali Congress Girija Prasad Koirala plays at times more so when he is out of power.
Basically, he is a destructive politician who works as per the instructions of his foreign masters who mainly reside in New Delhi.
The movers and shakers of Nepali politics who basically are Indian nationals apparently have instructed Koirala to destabilize the Maoists led government in whatever way he can.
Koirala’s destructive politics has already begun, however, this time it is not only the Indian establishment alone he is being assisted in a clandestine manner by some very powerful countries from the developed West.
That the politics of destabilization has begun gets amply reflected by the chain of political events and secret discourses made by Koirala with the Ambassadors of some European Countries plus the incumbent US Ambassador.
Look how the politics has taken its new route in the mean time. The chain is interlinked with each other.
On January 14, 2009, the Ambassadors from France (Gilles Henry Garault), United Kingdom (Andrew Hall) and United States of America (Ms. Nancy J. Powell) meet collectively Girija Prasad Koirala at his private residence in Maharajgunj wherein one of the Ambassadors present on the occasion compared Nepal prime Minister with the Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and appealed Koirala to understand the gravity of the situation and act accordingly.
Undeniably, these three powerful Ambassadors want to see the democratic system stabilized in Nepal and the people could enjoy the basic rights that are due to them in such a system.
Though the report published by this paper was rebuked by the British Embassy but the rebuttal was simply untenable as a similar even at a different date even more authentically confirmed our previous report.
The same group of Ambassadors from France, United Kingdom and United Kingdom met one of the senior leader of the UML-Khadga Prasad Oli two weeks later-to be more precise on January 28, 2009, at the UML headquarter.
If Koirala is a sharp critique of the Maoists then Oli too has a distinction in deriding at the Maoists paraphernalia tooth and nail.
It can be easily presumed as to what these powerful envoys of these countries may have talked with UML leader Khadga Prasad Oli.
Since both Koirala and Oli possess political hatred towards the ruling Maoists and thus the talks that the Ambassadors could have concentrated with the two Nepali leaders from different political setting could well be presumed in advance.
Thus well within two weeks time, the Ambassadors of France, UK and the US met two sharp critiques of the Maoists.
No wonder then K.P. Oli after such a “meaningful” meet with the above mentioned envoys suddenly reveals some seven days back that the UML will soon lead the government and that his party leader Madhav Kumar Nepal will steer the affairs of the country.
This does mean that there could have been some sort of tacit understanding in between Koirala, Oli and the three envoys that the Maoists government must be replaced by yet another suitable government that is democratic both in letter and spirit.
Informed sources also presume that the Indian establishment has some how or the other, in the mean time, convinced France, Britain and the United States of America to take into confidence Koirala and Oli-the known and declared opponents of the ex-rebels-and initiate campaign against the ruling Maoists government.
The strategy has two steps.
First, to initiate verbal attacks on the Maoists in order to send psychological pains in the camp of the ex-rebels and create political panic.
Second strategy is to summarily quit the government under one pretext or the other leaving the Maoists to swim in the deep blue ocean.
By extension, if the first two strategies work as expected, the third strategy is to convince the Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (MJF) to pull out its support and leave the Maoists in the mid ocean.
The fact is that if the UML and the MJF quit the government structure, the Maoists will be in minority and the government will die a premature death itself.
No extra effort is thus needed to bring about a collapse of this government.
To add strength to the analyses made here, Girija Prasad Koirala, February 8, 2009, made a grand declaration in Biratnagar while talking to some media men.
He made this revelation prior to leaving for Kathmandu upon completion of his three day “political rest” Sunday morning.
Look what he says, “It is time now to go in search for a suitable alternative government”.
In order to understand the inner dynamics of the dirty politics being played by Koirala and Oli of late , readers are just advised to recollect the dates of the meet of Koirala and Oli with the diplomats and then mix the expressions that have been made since then by these two Nepali leaders.
Thus between January 14, 2009 to February 8, 2009, Nepali politics has already been given a new twist.
How this politics affects the Maoists government will be no less interesting to note.
Cards have already come out of the sleeves.
