Nepal: Maoist Protests Disrupt Life In Kathmandu

“Many people in Kathmandu who were affected by the traffic jam caused by the Maoists today expressed their anger in personal conversation and twitter even as ex-rebels sang, danced and recited poems while picketing at the front gate of the central administrative complex of Nepal,” reports United We Blog! for a Democratic Nepal.

  • Dear editor,
    the Maoists are going to establish anarchism for their benifits. Because, they are visionless. They have no ideas to build the nation. They are confused and are getting fizzle out. So, their grand design is to disturb the society to show their gangs. So, we, Nepalese people are suffering from the traitors who are regime or oposition. They are all power hungers and money-minded.
    Dear editor ! we know the reality of our country.
    Without monarchy, Nepal can’t adjust. Nepali Congress leader late BP Koirala used to say: ‘The state of Nepal cannot remain without monarchy and even socialism can co-exist with monarchy in Nepal, the best example of monarchy is in Sweden. I wish there is a meeting point of the King’s nationalist interest and the people’s democratic interest. On the ethnic issue, BP Koirala used to say, ‘To incite and instigate Madhesi, Pahadi, Rai, Limbu and others in the name of ethnicity is an act of treachery against the country. What might be the strategy of Hindustan it wants to weaken us? Won’t it adopt this strategy?’ Similarly, one
    of the founder leader of Nepali Congress Krishna Prasad Bhattarai has said – ‘The country has been facing a series of problems due to the mistake of abolishing the royal institution’. So, we should understand the reality of monarchy in Nepal. There are some nationalists within
    Congress, UML and Maoists. None of nationalists either of parties or outsiders can remain silent. Now let’s be strong and committed from every corner for the country’s existence against the traitors.
    Thank you.

    Former Member of Parliament, Nepal. Political Analyst.
