Nepal’s failed political leadership that also includes lame duck President Ram Baran Yadav (from NC quota) held extensive discussions, Sunday September 30, 2012, centered on when and how to get rid of the political deadlock that continues unabated.
Reports quote a frightened President Ram Baran as saying, “Tell me yourself what I should do if you do not hold consensus”?
The president basically fears if his move will further deteriorate the political situation, critics have it.
That it will. Rest assured Mr. President, analysts opine.
“Tell me yourself how I should act. I expect you to provide the solutions.”
What can he expect from the parties that are primarily responsible for the sorry state of the country? Poor Yadav. Neither he can seek support from Poltu dada across the border.
President Yadav had invited the political leadership comprising some 20 party leaders at the presidential secretariat, Sunday at 3 PM.
Present at the meeting was Prime Minister Baburam and Vice President Parmananda Jha.
“Politics is your duty. Suggest what should I do,” repeatedly asked the nervous President.
Chairman Narayan Man Bijukche Rohit of Nepal Majdoor Kisan Party quotes Chairman Pushpa Kamal of Unified Maoists as saying, “Our efforts are underway to resolve disputes before Dashain festival begins. Discussions with all parties represented in the former constituent assembly will be held.”
Said Ram Chandra Poudel of Nepali Congress, “We will forge consensus to resolve disputes within this month including the formation of a national unity government and agreement on holding elections.”
Chairman Mohan Baidya Kiran told at the meeting, “With Prime Minister Baburam’s ouster all the problems confronting the nation will be automatically resolved.”
The meeting continued for almost four hours. Perhaps the meet ended with state paid yummy-yummy breakfast.
After all politics is for Khana Kai Lagi ta Ho
