Dirgha Raj Prasai is a former member of parliament in Nepal, former consultant of the administrative staff college of Nepal. He has written many books and articles, and is now a political analyst based in Kathmandu contributing to different newspapers and sites.

The Maoists are opening a ‘Pandora’s Box’ (evils collections) in the name of so-called ‘Civilian supremacy’. Actually, after the election of Constituent assembly-2008, the Maoist, UML & Madhesi based government failed in their commitment. The Maoist-led government has failed to maintain the rule of law and become failure to provide social justice to the common people. Due to the Maoist leadership the rule of law, Judiciary, Nepal army, and prestige of Nepalese identities including Pashupatinath, religious culture & traditions are at peril. The Maoist, during the insurgency, destroyed infrastructure, including projects of hydro-power, irrigation projects, radio stations, television, suspension-bridges and telephone towers. So, the poor Nepalese people are still in painful. Now, the Maoists have no vision and honesty how to move the nation. What is ‘Civilian supremacy?’ To establish one-party Communist rule?

The Delhi 12 points agreement 2005 has been the major cause to create the crisis and desintrigate. Now, Nepalese Maoists, RIM and COMPOSA have been joining the hands for one-party anarchist-Communist rule. Nepalese people are not secure. The situation is very dark. But, the Maoists are dancing before Govt. offices in the name of protest for so-called ‘Civilian supremacy’. Actually, they are getting fizzle out. If the situation would not be solved in time under the leadership by the nationalists, Nepal as well as India can’t secure. The Maoist regime was just like a poisonous wine in a new bottle.

We, Nepalese people are suffering from the notorious activities of
traitors as well as UNMIN. Nepalese people had expected that the UN’s role would be impartial. But the UN could not remain neutral. The UNMIN listens only to the Maoist rebels and the corrupt leaders of the so-called big party totally disregarded the aspiration of majority of the Nepalese people. In the main time UNMIN also is active to support Maoist’s agenda. UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon also misguided from UNMIN and Ban Ki- Moon has urged for a national government participated by the Maoist. And he asked the government for not recruiting new personnel in the Nepal army and also not providing lethal arms to the Nepal army, a national security force. That is not the joke for Nepal and India. The Nepalese and Indian leaders could not understand the grand-design of Maoist.The Maoists are going to establish anarchism in Nepal. Maoists used to claim them nationalist. But they are completely
exposed by their confused and non-political activities. The Delhi 12 points agreement 2005 has been the major cause to create the crisis and desintrigate.

What were pitfalls of the Constitution of 1990? Why was it suspended without reason? What kind of new constitution they require? These are the causes of crisis in Nepal. Nepalese democratic exercise faced the black period in between 2005-2009. During the period, Nepalese people tolerated the worst political practice made by corrupt leaders.

The so-called People’s movement II which was guided by India, were two vital agendas-Republic & Secular state. Without analyzing the assumption, the some Indian leaders
supported the Nepalese Maoist’s hypocrisy. I am sorry to write that it was a
great blunder of Indian diplomats- Shyam Saran, Sive Shankar Mukharejee and other officials who not only blundered in their assessment of Maoist but
also did much harm to Indian’s interests in Nepal. ‘Crows are never the white for washing.’ Recently, Maoist leader Pracanda recently said “If there is another revolt at least one million people may lose their precious lives. We need to be very careful at this juncture, to stop the casualties. When the people revolt they obliterate everything. If the mandate of the CA election is further ridiculed we will declare war” What is that? The Maoist wants to come to power but the dirty way. ‘A dog’s tail in a barrel always crooked’.

Similarly, the Maoist leader Mr. Bhattarai says- ‘After the abolition of the monarchy, would try to resist, and our main contradiction then would be with the bourgeois democratic parties. After April 2009 [when Prachanda resigned from government], that phase of the Constituent Assembly and implementation of the bourgeois democratic republic was more or less complete. We had formulated the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), we had our base areas, we had a lot of mass support, and all this we have been able to preserve. The PLA is still with us, and the arms we collected during that war are still with us within the single-key system, monitored by the United Nations team, but basically the key is with us and the army is with us and we have never surrendered. We are still continuing in the path of revolution.’ What is that? Can Indian leaders and America & UN’s diplomats answer the result?

Nepal has been facing a series of problems due to the mistake of abolishing the royal institution. History says and everybody knows the monarchy is a symbol of Nepalese unity and democracy. An irresponsible leadership in the government, the corrupt mentality of political leaders as well as the bureaucrats, all are responsible for the plight of Nepal. The government or the so-called big parties are neither responsible nor sincere to solve these problems. The reality is that after the removal of the King, not only nationality, but the risk of the nation fading is increasing every day. If we don’t accept the King’s existence then trouble will be seen in the existence of the nation. So, the King’s necessity is being felt more than ever. The monarchy is the oldest and strongest foundation for Nepal’s nationality and democracy. The so-called republic can’t protect the sovereignty of Nepal.

The situation of Nepal is getting worse day by day. If effective action are not taken all the situations would further deteriorate. Some Tarai-based groups are demanding- ‘One Madhesh One Province’ which is never feasible for good governance for the Tarai people. Geographically, ethnically, linguistically and socially the people can’t be integrated in One Province. For example, Maithili, Bhojpuri, Abadhi, Tharu, Rajbanshi, Dhimal and Nepali are among the dominant languages which are in use in different places. It is an annoyance for Hill-origin people as well as the indigenous tribes. Because of the different linguist groups, ‘Nepali’ has become lingua-franca (communicative language) from many years.

Every citizens and castes in Tarai are furious because some culprit wants to introduce Hindi to eliminate all the rich and old languages & rich culture of our Tarai people. To disintegrate country it is necessary to destroy religion, culture, languages and way of life of the people. So, the antinationalist want to finish Tarai people’s language, culture and way of life by introducing the Hindi culture & language- introducing the Indian dominance. To protect the language & culture every nationalist Tarai people should be aware of it. The reality is that the people have no power and are ignored by the culprit leaders. The agent leaders of Tarai have not accepted the People’s opinion in Tarai because the indigenous people of Tarai are not in leadership.

Nepalese people feel ashamed of so called leaders who are giving slogans to built New Nepal. They are trying to make the people fool. The so-called founders of the Republic Nepal made us ashamed before the world. The power mongers, opportunists, corrupt, ethics-less, kidnappers and killers are now the advocators of the so called new Nepal -Federal Republic Nepal. The democratic powers like USA, European Union, UNO and others are not sounding against the undemocratic attitude in Nepal. So, the only ways to stop more bloodshed and to save democracy is by re-establishing constitutional monarchy and strengthen parliamentary democracy.
