Prachanda merely “de jure” boss of the rebel outfit it once was
KATHMANDU: Maoist secretary C P Gajurel has come down heavily on Prachanda saying he is merely a “de jure” president of the party. “We still go around saying he is party president but he is least effective,” Gajurel said highlighting how worse the party is enmeshed in intra party power struggle.
He said that it is altogether a different matter that Prachanda has failed to play an effective role as the party chairman but “we perceive him as a dejure Chairman.
Nothing more than that.” He also noted how Post Bahadur Bogati, who is Energy Minister, had recently travelled to India and had provided clear nod to three anti-national treaties/agreements that were kept on hold for years.
He came down heavily on Congress and CPN-UML. “It is the failure of the opposition parties that the government is surviving even with so many flaws,” he said and continued,
“The government is clinically dead. Sooner it goes better for the country.” “Finally, our own party will accept the constitution as wished by Nepali Congress and UML”, he claimed. Perhaps he was hinting at the fact that the UML and the NC will act as per the Indian wishes which will later be accepted by his own party.
