Revolutionaries, counter-revolutionaries and self-styled democrats disappear into a seedy resort
N24, KATHMANDU: Once again and calculaby for the last time, some two and half dozen those into high politicsand led by their party chairmen headed straight to a resort with the objective to sort out their differences over constitution drafting process.
Some noted proletarian-revolutionaries too were in the state loot team if that explains who is involved.
The resort in question is Hattiban Resort and the party has been organized by, hold your breath, Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai.
Media reports have it that the leaders who went there for a night halt are expected to make a breakthrough by late evening Monday. Free alcohol will facilitate the breakthrough.
Some eight of them each representing three major political parties and six representing Madhesi alliance are taking part. And they have booked 24 rooms until April 16.
Surprisingly, Mohan Baidya, Ram Bahadur Thapa, Dev Gurung and Hitman Shakya are also present at the meeting. There seems to be consensus when the chips are down.
First to arrive was, guess who, Prachanda and Prime Minister Baburam.
Reportedly, the leaders in their first sitting held an all party meeting and separated for holding dialogue within their own party. The meeting continued until late night.
Yes than there was Sushil and former prime minister Jhalnath Khanal. Bill is yet to be created though.
