By N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Thanks or no thanks to comrade Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda”’s karma in the past, his bad days are back. With the official split of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) into NCP (UML) and NCP (Maoist Centre) owing to a Supreme Court verdict on NCP name patent dispute, Prachanda has lost the largest party of two-third majority and its chairmanship, too.
Prachanda is now back to a burrow in Paris Danda from the den in Dhumbarahi. His wild ambitions are chiefly responsible for his political demise, as he was unruly and non-cooperative to his own party’s Prime Minister, PM KP Sharma Oli.
At the time of party unity of UML and the Maoists, it was agreed that an elected Prime Minister will have a full term of five years and that the party will extend all necessary cooperation to this end. Prachanda, however, did not agree with this gentleman’s agreement and continuously demanded PM Oli’s resignation, which cost him his political career.
Three years ago, Maoists were losing elections and people’s faith everywhere and the trend is still unabated. In the parliament, Prachanda’s party comes third only after UML and Nepali Congress. If an election is to be held today, the Maoists will hardly retain 50 percent of their total parliamentary seats.
A back door entry into the foray of the largest party (UML) ensured that Prachanda’s karma is strong but his impatience and greed for power dug the political grave for himself.
“We will now stand on our own feet,” Prachanda said during the Maoist Centre’s meeting in Paris Danda, indicating himself that he had made a successful back door entry becoming the chairman of the largest political party, by fluke.
For Prachanda to stand on his own feet, there remains, however, a long way to go. People, in general, blame him for the bloodbath of 17,000 Nepalis for an unnecessary and so-called “people’s war” at a time when Nepal was heading towards a robust economic growth.
Prachanda has allegations of committing serious war crimes and a number of war victims have threatened to drag him to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands for his heinous crimes.
And Prachanda is bereaved of friends, too. Many of his long-time friends and mentors, including Mohan Baidya, Baburam Bhattarai, Ram Bahadur Thapa “Badal”, Netra Bikram Chand “Biplab”, Mani Thapa, and Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, among others, have left him. This list of defectors is increasing and so is the loneliness of Prachanda.
Prachanda may have the comfort of basking in a peaceful time following a peace agreement and thereby being in the power game for more than 12 years now, but he does not have the comfort of living with peace.
Prachanda has lost peace of mind because he bereaved thousands of families with their peace of mind in the past. Prachanda sowed restlessness, impatience, anxiety, and socio-psychological disorders in the Nepali society. As a consequence, he is now reaping anxiety and depressive bouts for himself. What goes around, comes around and there should be no surprise for the current fate of Mr. Prachanda.
