On April 10, 2012, at around 05:00 PM, Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal was on his way to attend the Special Committee meeting in his SU vehicle.
It was at the same special committee meeting Dahal took the ‘bold’ decision to handover weapons, cantonments and militias to the Nepal Army.
Hardly had Dahal’s vehicle reached the main street in Lazimpat, he received a telephone call.
A female voice was overheard by one of his aides seated next to Dahal in the vehicle “Bharatiya Rajdoot aaunu bhako cha…Chadai Aaunus”.
”The Indian ambassador has come please come fast”. (Literal translation).
Dahal immediately ordered the driver to take a u-turn.
Within six minutes, Dahal reached his posh bungalow and headed straight towards the ‘Baithak’- a proletariat sitting-room.
By then, Amresh Kumar Singh- the so-called Nepali Congress leader and a suspicious person by all means, had already arrived at Dahals’ residence.
Amresh is the only witness to what transpired between Indian Ambassador Jayant Prasad and Chairman Dahal.
May be Jayant extended the Delhi invitation to Dahal.
While Dahal was holding talks with the Indian Ambassador, his aides were repeatedly receiving calls from Prime Minister Baburam.
Bhattarai was requesting them to send Prachanda as soon as possible at the meeting.
After his talks with Indian ambassador were over, Dahal straight headed towards Singhdurbar.
Early hours on Tuesday, it is known through high level sources, local agents of India’s notorious intelligence agency RAW-with whom Dahal presumably shares intimate ties, had informed him that dissatisfied militias were planning to loot the weapons from the cantonments.
Thus analysts guess, Dahal took the hasty decision to hand over his carefully nurtured Militias and their weapons to the Nepal Army.
People’s War remains in the history pages now.
