Here’s demonstration of bravado true to history, damn it
KATHMANDU: Here is the usual grandstanding and demonstration of bravado that has become the timeless feature. That comes to the fore when there is chorus for the resignation of the incumbent prime minister.
With background score rising by the day for the resignation of Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai, here is his advisor coming up with tall claim that he will not resign. And to make the matter murkier by the hour, the chorus is coming from the ruling party leaders than the opposition. Ironic as it is, it getting more and more ridiculous too
. And to make the matters worse and more obvious by the day, the demonstration of bravado comes from a political non-entity that is chief political advisor to Prime Minister Bhattarai. Here is Devendra Poudel challenging the party’s hard-line faction to move a no-confidence motion against the government.
Here is the threat: Bhattarai would not buckle under Baidya faction’s pressure. Here is more: call for resignation is aimed to push the country towards uncertainty and conflict.
This has been the common line of refrain from all political non-entities who have surrounded prime ministers since 1990. If he resigns, Dr Bhattarai would be the 22nd prime minister to resign under ridiculous state of affairs in 22 years straight.
Nepal has perfected the recipe of political instability, with prime ministers coming and leaving at frequent intervals. Here is he outlining the exit plan: PM will not resign without a viable alternative. He is saying much the same thing as his predecessors. He said it was “Baidya faction’s “foolishness and immaturity” to label the government as anti-national and anti-people.”
