“Quem deus vult perdere, dementat prius” which literally means “Whom gods would destroy, they first make insane”.
It is a saying in Latin.
The popular adage goes well with present day Nepali leaders more so Nepal’s born but India indoctrinated Republican Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai.
Perhaps frustrated by miserable failure of his lot to take the country under proper control including timely drafting of elusive constitution and conclude faltering peace process, Baburam declared in Parsa Friday March 2, 2012 that the royalists have begun raising their heads to disrupt the constitutional and peace processes.
Herein fits the Latin famous saying, analysts claim.
Baburam expressed his fears just a day after Nepal’s last monarch Gyanendra Shah attended a Hindu religious ceremony in Jhumka of Sunsari District. Shah was welcomed by thousands of his supporters on his way from Biratnagar Airport to Jhumka bazaar-a small town close to Ineruwa.
After the ceremony in Jhumka, Gyanendra Shah held a press-meet organized in Biratnagar wherein he indirectly urged political parties to strengthen nationalism, public security and democracy.
“I would like to stress on three things, which I have found in a weak state. Nationalism, public security and democracy are three vital things we need to strengthen, then only peace and stability is possible.” This is what he said at the press meet.
Baburam went on to add that the royalists are conspiring to derail the peace and constitutional process and claimed that his government will foil those conspiracies.
He was inaugurating a school building while making these comments.
“We will put our entire efforts to complete the tasks,” he also claimed yet did not provide any substance to his utterance.
India is likely to cut India. Here lay the meaning underneath. Bhattarai has yet to understand India changed mood. India keeps on changing.
