US envoy Scot DeLisi undiplomatic act shakes Nepalís Maoist party

Telegraph Nepal

“I have begun feeling ashamed in calling myself as a Maoist leader”, so said central committee member of Unified Maoists’ Party Ghanashyam Sharma Poudel with a heavy heart at the ongoing central committee meeting.

He asked, “Who forced our Finance Minister (Barsaman Pun ‘Ananta’) to act as a functionary (Dalali Garne) of the imperialist”?

“Why he bowed down to the US Ambassador,” Poudel asked again.

Pain of being insulted. Analysts can understand his inner pains.

To recall, the US ambassador Scott H. DeLisi aka ‘the Facebook diplomat’ was recently photographed (published in a national daily) while patting the shoulder of Nepal’s Finance Minister Barsa Man Pun Ananta. (Photo Courtesy: Nagarik National Daily).

By all means, an undiplomatic act from the ambassador of the lone superpower, comment critics. PNG act that it was.

Ghanashyam Sharma Poudel went further ahead and reminded the party comrades, “If you recall, during the revolt days we had declared war against the imperialists. If you still have the moral, I want the party to publicly deplore the act of the US ambassador.”

After Ghanashyam Sharma expressed his anger, pin drop silence prevailed in the room for over a minute which was followed by a long applaud from the leaders of Mohan Baidya ‘Kiran’ panel.

Rato Ra Chandra Surya Hamro...Samrajya Dui Harey Harena Shan Hamro...

Unfortunately, the party is yet to formally deplore the US ambassador. Does that mean, according to Sharma, the Maoists party is full of immoral leaders?

Logical question indeed.

After DeLisi’s ‘undiplomatic behaviour’, poor Nepal’s Finance Minister Pun instead bowed down and thanked him, recall eyewitness. Poor mother Nepal!

Analysts opine that the US envoy must apologise. The US State Department must take note of this erratic event and act accordingly. Earlier the better. ( Based on a story published by the Dristi Weekly dated December 3, 2012).

  • I wish Mr Ambassador had patted his cheek instead and elbowed his ribs or even punched him in his face and given him a black eye. These murderers deserve such diplomatic gestures. They are not normal people. They are criminals. Even the Chinese are ashamed of them for using their leader Mao's name.

  • Absolute junk. The pat on the back was a cultural gesture of friendship on the part of the Ambassador. Patting the shoulder or back in such an instance tells the recipient that he is worth more than just the formality of a simple handshake. Knock it off Telegraph--stop trying to stir the pot.
