             UML  –  NC Alliance – A Step Backward

We firmly believed that UML was capable of providing leadership in fostering progressive democracy – the democracy where any form of hypocrisy would be rejected and people’s verdict would be respected in every step. But by pulling out of the Unified CPN – led government and forming a new one with support from the parties with which it has ideologically little in common, UML has led the country a step backward. Instead of uniting with progressive forces, it formed alliance with opposite forces. It thus became a relic of the old political system where a government is formed and sustained on the basis of the bargain political parties make for ministerial posts.

 How could UML condition its support to the democratically formed progressive government on retaining the army chief who openly defied the people’s government? Even in the UNIM’s opinion, the army chief violated the peace agreement by recruiting new army personnel.

 Shouldn’t UML have opposed the foreign powers when they showed undue concern about Nepal army’s chief? By opposing the then government’s decision to sack the army chief, it sided with the foreign intervention in Nepal’s internal affairs. Can any one imagine Nepal’s ambassadors pressuring these foreign countries into appointing army chiefs of their liking?

UML further demonstrated its regressive nature by opposing to debate in the Constitutional Assembly whether the President’s reinstating the army chief against the then government decision is constitutional or not. Its commitment to free and open society is put into a grave doubt when it along with the Nepali Congress (NC) party puts pressure on the assembly not to register the Unified CPN’s proposal on this issue. Isn’t it a demonstration of UML’s cowardliness? 

  UML has initiated the feudal political culture in the country where political leaders would put their personal interest ahead of the country’s. How could we now be sure that such an unstable and unpredictable government would be able to address people’s daily problems of clean drinking water, electricity, education, health and employment? Shouldn’t UML have continued to support the Unified CPN – led government only to give continuity to its noteworthy successes. The CPN government, in spite of several shortcomings, had succeeded in raising revenues by on average more than 50% – a feat something unheard of in the country. The government had also taken steps to generate hundreds of thousands of employment opportunities.

 At this moment, we also urge the Unified CPN to take stock of its failures and successes in its effort to create a fair and free democratic Nepal.

The party urgently needs to create an army of disciplined cadres that is capable of serving the people, but hitting enemies hard. If they mix up people with enemies, they will be playing in enemies’ hands and causing a great harm to the party. The excesses committed by YCLA are examples of such misdeeds. We sincerely hope the party will rectify its mistakes and emerge as a more disciplined and people serving party.

 Democracy will be relevant to people’s daily lives only if those who lead the country backward are shown the exit in time. If not, a new society will never be created and people will continue to suffer. The responsibility ultimately lies with the people of Nepal.

    माओवादीले उठाएको नागरिक सर्वेच्चताको जायज मुद्दाको हल नाजायज तरिकाबाट खोज्ने प्रयास भइरहेको छ । यो सफल हुने सम्भावना छैन । किनकि, आफूलाई लोकतान्त्रिक भन्न रुचाउने, अनि आफूमा अलिकति पनि अधिनायकवादी चिन्तन छैन भन्न चाहने अन्य दलले पनि संसदीय सर्वाेच्चतालाई बोकिरहेका छैनन् । माओवादीको संकल्प-प्रस्ताव संसद्मा छलफल नै गर्न नदिइनु यसैको प्रमाण हो । दसवर्षे जनयुद्ध, ०६२/६३ को जनआन्दोलन, त्यसक्रममा भएको बाह्रबुँदे समझदारी र बृहत् शान्ति-सम्झौतामा दुवै पक्षबाट गरिएका प्रतिबद्धताको इमानदारीपूर्वक पालनाबाट मात्रै आजका चुनौतीसँग मुकाबिला गर्न सकिन्छ । त्यसैले दलहरूबीच आपसी समझदारी र राष्ट्रका मुख्य मुद्दामा सहकार्यको विकल्प छैन । यही आधारमा परिवर्तनलाई संस्थागत गर्न राज्यको पुनर्संरचना आवश्यक छ । पुरानो पछ्यौटे समाजका स्वार्थ र सम्बन्धलाई अन्त्य गर्दै ‘यो नेपाल मेरो हो, यसमा मेरो पनि हक छ’ भन्ने अधिकार राख्ने सबै जातजाति, जनजाति, दलित, महिला, पिछडिएका वर्ग र क्षेत्रका नागरिकको आर्थिक, सामाजिक, सांस्कृतिक, राजनीतिक, स्वार्थलाई सम्बोधन गर्दै उनीहरूका अधिकारलाई प्रत्याभूति दिलाउने किसिमको नयाँ संविधान निर्माण नै आजको मुख्य काम हो । यो काम निर्धारित समयमै पूरा गर्ने सामूहिक प्रतिबद्धता पुनः जाहेर गर्न जरुरी छ । अनि मात्र अगाडि बढ्ने बाटो खुल्नेछ । बहुलवादमा दलहरूबीच सबै मत मिल्नु जरुरी हुँदैन ।
