This has already become a phenomenon and a common trait in
The Communists in effect are the most unfortunate ones who unite only to break after some time. The reason for such a split or for that matter unification could not well be a huge factor but yet this phenomenon thus has continued since the early 1950s, to say the least.
Later, other political paraphernalia too toes the same line and made the split and the unification a regular feature which could well be taken as a Nepali “tradition” which happily continues till today. Thanks to our august leaders that such phenomenon have been entertaining “we the people” since decades and decades. No where in the world one gets free entertainment this.
No wonder if some parties split and don’t jump with joy if some splinters wish to coin their own mother organizations. However, the fact is that even if they unite, they do so for yet another split. Thus split and unification have become the two faces of the same coin.
To boot, the communists in the early fifties saw a vertical split on counts of 1950 treaty with
The rest were divided on whether to call
Fortunately, the communists who began their career by denouncing India and later bagged votes at time of the general elections have now, sorry to say, become number one “potential” friend of India though it was not a free lunch for the communists.
The Indian establishment either has had to push the Nepali communists to the power corridors of this country or else some lucrative free educational “scholarship” was to be granted to the kids of the communists leaders of this country. A rough estimate has it that the “illustrious” sons and the daughters of many a political authorities in Nepal have been enjoying Indian grant scholarship scheme at the moment, for example, Madhav Nepal and Ram Chandra Poudel are the two such Nepali leaders whose daughters are currently in Delhi studying MBBS degree.

It is not for nothing that the Industry and Supply minister Rajendra Mahato, a NSP leader, have had to rush towards the Indian embassy in an unearthly hours to beg security of his dwindling ministerial post. The Sanghu weekly writes that it was Mahato’s fervent plea made to the Indian officials almost in a voice choked with emotion that he could ultimately secure his post or else Hridayesh Tripathi-an arch rival of Mahato well inside the same party-had almost snatched the post from Mahato. Thanks the timely intervention of the Indian staffers that Mahato’s prestige was saved. Had there been no intervention in this particular case, the NSP party would have seen a vertical split. Thanks God that the “disaster” was averted through the kind courtesy of the Indian embassy officials. No less a generous support to
Reports say that Mahato’s post was saved in lieu of granting government level permission to some
Now talking of the recent trend seen in the Madhesi outfits are geared up for vertical splits. The Madhesi Janadhikar Forum leader Upendra Yadav was sacked by his own deputy, Kishore Biswas. As if this were not enough, the party colleagues of jay Krishna Goit too have fired their own supreme leader. The process is on which might one fine morning declare that Nagendra Paswan is no more the president of Jwala Singh group.
This does indicate that the Madhesi groups were not at all an organized lot. They were divided from the very first day and that every one engaged in the party activities since its inception was vying for the presidential post. It is altogether a different matter that some Madhesi groups who have sacked their original Supremo through almost a coup d’etat have alleged that their top leaders were found engaged in acts of corruption and also in disturbing the communal harmony in between the Madhesis and the Pahades.
