Telegraph NepalNepali intellectuals have not taken in good taste the manner the Indian Ambassador Jayant Prasad tentatively presided over the Nepal parties’ meet, this Wednesday, which facilitated the JNU graduate Nepal Prime Minister to dissolve his cabinet in order to, what is being given to understand, to form a national unity government.
Let’s see how Dinesh Satyal alias Saurav has taken this Indian highhandedness, in his own words; ( The Sourya daily dated May 4, 2012).
“What has become clear now is that till Babu Ram Bhattarai remains in the government, the new constitution for Nepal will be drafted as per the Indian preference. When the talks of pushing a no confidence motion against this government was floated, it was sheepishly visible that a section of the Maoists party led by Mohan Baidya itself may extend its support to the champions of the no confidence motion which is what encouraged the Indian establishment to come to the rescue of Prime Minister Babu ram. It should be taken in this light. On the other hand, the Indian regime had to send signals across the globe that Nepal fell in its sphere of influence which India proved it to be so this time around. The leaders of the Nepalese political parties through their own follies have been losing their decision making capabilities.
