With 18 days remaining to draft the constitution, Nepal’s so-called youth leaders with ‘enormous potential and stamina’ have begun talking to public and clarifying their respective positions.
Top among them all is Nepali Congresses’ talkative Gagan Thapa who once wrote in his write-up that he was not at all liable for the failure of Constituent Assembly to draft the constitution, was heard on Thursday May 10, 2012, making similar assertions at Rishi Dhamala’s press conference in Kathmandu.
Thapa’s slide has already begun.
Thapa was of the view that the four party leaders in all these four years barred them from playing constructive role in Nepali politics. Lame excuse!
“When there is will there is way, it is wisely said” critics opine and add, “Thapa cannot escape from his national duties by making off the cuff remarks. He and his contemporaries shall be adjudged equally responsible for keeping mum against the malpractices of their party leaders and finally pushing the country to the brink.”
This is the right time to reflect on whether party is greater than nation, critics advise.
Will Thapa listen to it?
Thapa also said that his party should return from government if constitution cannot be drafted before May 28, 2012.
Gagan also made various allegations on the party leaders but presented no solution to the impending danger.
Similarly, youth leaders, Rabindra Adhikari of United Marxist Leninist and Hitman Shakya of Unified Maoists tried their best to distance themselves from the failure of their respective political parties.
Lack of speaking stamina even.
