· During Peoples’ Uprising-62/63 he had made anti-republican remarks. He was favouring Monarchy.
· He has links with criminal elements, protects them and supervises illegal activities.
· What is your formal stance on the Indian role in Nepali politics?
· He is operating parallel institutions such as Madan Bhandari Foundation, Madan Bhandari Sports Academy and is involved in various suspicious activities that have weakened the party. He is using those institutions against the party. The institutions receive funds from unknown sources.
These are some of the total 11 allegations recorded against United Marxist Leninists Leader K.P. Sharma by politburo member and erstwhile Finance Minister Surendra Pandey, May 31, 2011.
Pandey is close to the panel led by party chairman and incumbent prime minister Jhal Nath Khanal. Some even claim that Khanal and Pandey were close relatives.
To recall, just the other day Oli had recorded a nine point proposal against the party chairman-Khanal.
In the party central committee meeting, June 1, 2011, the leaders were set to discuss the 5-Point inter-party deal to extend the CA tenure however, no other topic except Pandey’s allegation against the so-called influential leader Oli were discussed.
The most terrified of the lot that went on the berserk against Pandey was none less than the former Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal and his ilk. It was obvious. Birds of same feather flock together.
The central committee later asked Pandey to withdraw his allegations against the party senior leader and warned him not to get involved in such irresponsible activities as this.
The party out rightly rejected the proposal.
Having caused the damage, Pandey too as a disciplined cadre of the so-called Communist Party regretted for his decision however, he said that he had only handed over the proposal to General Secretary Ishwar Pokharel and was completely taken aback to see the proposal covered by newspapers the next day. Perhaps Pokharel was also playing double.
“It was my mistake to make those personal allegations. I would like to regret and withdraw my proposal. No one else except me had prepared this proposal.”
Pandey tried to save Chairman Khanal.
But yet Oli is now held suspect.
It was Oli’s turn to reply:
“I had never in my entire political career been charged with such grave allegations. I was taken aback that it was one of our own comrades hurling such grave charges against me. I challenge Pandey to prove these allegations”.
“Regarding Madhan Bhandari foundation- the organization is involved in social activities thus it is also working in disseminating the ideology of multi-party peoples’ democracy (bahudaliya janabad). Is it a crime? Does it mean that I am operating a parallel institution?”
By the way, Madan Bhandari Foundation receives huge fund from the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu. Generous Indian embassy.
As far as my links with India is concerned, at time of signing of the 12-Point Agreement (22 November 2005) I too had gone to New Delhi to hold talks with the Maoists. I was also accompanied by Comrade Nepal (Madhav) and Comrade Amrit. While in New Delhi I have no idea who met whom there but we all returned to Kathmandu together. My relation with India is no different than the relation that the party shares with the Southern neighbour. I am the party’s international bureau chief. It is my duty to establish relations with India, China and the US as per the party’s structured line. Surendra Pandey has opened Pandora’s Box.
