Nepal PM snub to Dollar Spinning Human Rights Agencies

Telegraph Nepal

Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai has said that the dollar spinning Human Rights’ Agencies in Nepal are unnecessarily flaring the government decision to withdraw murder charges from Unified Maoists’ Party Constituent assembly member Balkrishna Dhungel.

He made this remark while talking to journalists at the Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu upon return from attending the 17th SAARC summit held in Addu City of the Maldives. The Gossip Club as it is taken now by the South Asian population.

To recall, Nepal’s ex-King Gyanendra Shah during his absolute reign had made similar allegation while talking to a local television channel which had created furor among the now politically divided Human Rights activists and the countries who presumably had been pumping in dollars against the Royal regime.

King Gyanendra’s summary charges made then though brought the HR conglomerates under one umbrella. Quick money and that too if it is free matters in Nepali society.

History repeats itself in a short span of some six years.

“A small section of dollar spinning groups are flaring up the issue”, said the Prime Minister adding, “The government has forwarded the amnesty decision to the President after completing all the needed legal procedures. The decision has been made as per the broader peace agreement which states that all charges put on the Maoists during the peoples’ revolt will be withdrawn.”

“The government is determined and there will be no reconsideration”, Bhattarai made it clear to those who, according to PM Bhattarai, were dollar spinners.

The Okhaldhunga District Court in 2004 had convicted Dhungel for murdering Ujjan Kumar Shrestha of Okhaldhunga in 1998; however, he was awarded a clean chit in 2006 by Rajbiraj Appellate District court. The Supreme Court in 2010 had upheld the decision of Okhaldhunga District Court.

In the mean time, the Unified Maoists’ Party on Saturday organized a press meet at the party headquarters in Kathmandu and defended CA member Bal Krishna Dhungel saying that Dhungel was not personally involved in the murder.

“It was a party decision because Ujjan was involved in several cases of sexual harassment and espionage,” said Maoists’ Party Okhaldhunga district committee secretary Ram Karki.

Thus the stage is now set for a real confrontation.

  • All maoists are criminals and all murderers and criminals are made ministers, so it's not unusual to pardon a wanted criminal and murderer like Bal Krishna Dhungel. This clearly shows the real faces of the TERRORISTS MAOISTS. Mr Bhattarai whom we thought clean is himself a MURDERER who had ordered Mr. Dhungyel to finish late Shrestha that's why he is trying to pardon the Criminal Dhungel. Now we Nepalese must understand that the real intention of Nepalese Maoists.

While Surya Bahadur Thapa was PM of Nepal and late Girja Parsad koirala announced front of the publics at Nepalganj, "Thapako rajinama patra mero khaltima chha" but, this time very hard to say. BR Bhattaraiko rajinama patra kham bhitra rakher tickat mathi chap lagai sakeko chha. Hoina-hola!
