In the present fluid political situation, Nepal’s former King Gyanendra Shah and royalists are trying to garner as much benefit as possible, so said Ram Saran Mahat of Nepali Congress.
The longer the transitional period, better for the reactionaries, he held and added, sooner the parties unite to end the transition better for the country.
Mahat made the remark while addressing a press meet in Taulihawa of Kapilbastu, July 18, 2012.
Thus, he said, time is ripe for the President to take control over deteriorating political situation of the country and end the transition.
“The President must acquire an active posture. He must appeal all the parties to create favorable atmosphere to end the disputes”.
While making a lecture somewhere in Nepal recently, Mahat had predicted that by July 23, 2012, the President will take some steps to end the present political stalemate.
