While Prime Minister Baburam a day before threatened former king Gyanendra Shah of slashing some state facilities accorded to him as the former head of the state, Baburam’s wife Hisila Yami-Bhattarai appearing at a press interaction in Kathmandu, July 10, 2012 expressed fears that as hinted by the former king while talking to the media the other day, there lay the high possibility of the revival of monarchy.
Hisila is widely taken as number one extortionist in the Unified Maoists Party. The party insiders make such claims.
“Gyanendra has already warned the political parties. The new order is heading towards an abysmal failure. The former King who too had been a failure is threatening to make a grand comeback.”
“The wrangling between political parties has become a boon for the former king. If parties do not take timely lessons Gyanendra could make a comeback,” reiterated Yami.
Trembling from within.
Prime Minister Baburam had the other day warned Gyanendra Shah to take timely lessons else he may have to feel the brunt of state power.
Hisila nevertheless alleged Nepali Congress and United Marxist Leninist for merely focusing on power centric politics.
“Baburam Bhattarai was ready to tender his resignation immediately with the dissolution of the constituent assembly,” said PM’s wife and added, “He will regain immediately upon parties reach consensus to resolve disputes in a package.”
By the way, Hisila Yami is the daughter of late Dharma Ratna Yami who had been a Minister during King Mahendra’s rule long time back. B. P. Koirala was Nepal Prime Minister then.
Hisila perhaps is more intelligent than Bhattarai as she has already guessed the course of impending politics to which her husband has not.
