The constituent assembly election defeated United Marxist Leninist leader Madhav Kumar Nepal continues to verbally attack Nepal’s former King Gyanendra Shah.
Suffering from Gyanendra phobia?
Addressing a party program in Bharatpur of Chitwan, Saturday July 14, 2012, Madhav once again challenged the former king to make public the agreement that he claimed in an interview with a local television channel to have been reached with the political parties prior handing over executive powers to Prime Minister in April 2006.
“Gyenendra might have considered that Madhav Nepal is a chane-chuney (ordinary) political leader, said Mr. Nepal.
Girija Babu is no more but I am still alive. He might have thought that people will believe whatever he says. I am ready to confront him.”
How can an election defeated leader be taken as Chan-Chuney? Analysts instead take Mr. Nepal as a great leader of the entire South Asian region.
He rather claimed that the speech of the then king Gyanendra Shah made on April 24, 2006 was drafted by himself in consultation with late Nepali Congress President Girija Prasad Koirala.
“He was forced to read exactly the same draft”, said Nepal and added, “In consultation with Nepali Congress President Girija Prasad Koirala, I as the then general secretary of the party had prepared the draft of his speech wherein Gyanendra revives the parliament as per the draft.”
“We had only reached an agreement to revive the parliament. Where is the agreement to retain the monarchy? Where is the proof”, a highly charged Nepal asked and added, “Girija babu and I personally had signed a deal to revive the parliament.”
At least he now talks of such an agreement. Half way he is now.
“We do not need his guardianship”, a highly aggravated Mr. Nepal continued, “Monarchy will never stage a comeback.”
“I warn him not to make hawadari (irrelevant) remarks”, said Nepal.
In the meantime, talking to Avenues television channel senior journalist Dhurba Hari Adhikari July 14, 2012, claims that there indeed exist such an agreement.
“Even a layman would not believe that without an agreement King Gyanendra could have made the April 24 speech”, he said.
Yet another substantial twist.
