Parties waiting for constitution “Made in India”
N24, KATHMANDU: Here’s why no one should fear return of monarchy after May 28 should the constitution not come by.
Here is C.P. Gajurel, who represents the hardliner faction of the UCPN-Maoist, saying party leaders are in the process of adopting a constitution made in India.
This is what has already been hinted by ‘Nepal fate maker’ while talking to the media men “collected” by Reporters Club Nepal.
“India has already drafted a constitution for Nepal,”,declared Gajurel addressing a press interaction in Kathmandu. “The Nepali political parties are making environment favourable for India to impose their drafted constitution.”
Dr. Shasank Koirala had also made similar remark as early as 2008.
“A new constitution for Nepal is currently being drafted in New Delhi under the guidance of Dr. Babu Ram Bhattarai”, Koirala had said two days after election was held.
Baburam is currently leading the country as the prime minister, as Nepali unfortunate luck would have it.
Gajural and Koirala’s assertions have substance, claim critics.
Addressing a program in April 12, 2009 incumbent Finance Minister Barsaman Pun ‘Ananta’ had also served similar warning.
Addressing a mass meeting in Rolpa, Ananta had said “There is the threat that the draft of Nepal’s Constitution will be made outside the country and handed over to us at an appropriate time.”
With less than fifty days left, perhaps this is the right time, add critics.
In these many years, critics suspect, Ananta himself has gone into the fold of ‘foreigners’.
Gajurel also said, “The conspiracy is to revive 1990 constitution replacing monarchy by republic. Such a constitution will not be acceptable to us.”
Professor Muni, a self styled friend of Nepal too has also hinted at the same but in an implied manner.
Analysts hope that the Nepali national anthem will also be an imported one very much similar to what the Indian nationals have.
