People’s Power

Posted by: nischaldahal

Nepal just saw a landslide victory of ex-rebels in the CA polls. It was an unexpected win even for Maoists who had persuaded the then government to defer the polls twice in one year. But , the more important thing in the people’s verdict is that they have overthrown the Nepali Congress and UML literally from root. Almost all “heavy weight” leaders have lost their election, Madhav Nepal, KP Oli, Sushil Koirala have lost moral ground to continue to as prominent leader, those who have taken the election as granted have hopefully got a glimpse of People’s power. Sujata Koirala, Govinda Raj Joshi, Chiranjibi Wagle, Khum bahadur Khadga who have been universally known as corrupt and could even kill hundreds of people without a second thought have been ousted, this is the verdict of People. Now, the set of incompetent leaders have to be wiped out of Nepalese politics and fresh people should take the lead. After all this is the beauty of Democracy.

On the other hand, Every Nepalese eye are on Prachanda and his party, they have to realize that they are in that position because they are only one option out of many. If they betrayed us, like UML and NC has done over the years, they will be buried underground like Koiralas and Gyanendra. Don’t think people are your followers if they can set you on top they can also bury under ground. If you can’t keep up with the aspiration of people, at least do not betray them. Remember, Gyanendra was also applauded after February 1 move because he was one of the alternatives, he betrayed us and his fate is no more than prisoner inside a luxury dungeon. This is people’s power, this is democracy. Hats off Nepalese voters and beware Maoists, you can be in Gyanendra’s shoes sometime in future.

    Critic, its for sure you live outside nepal. Few people like you always thought that people who living in nepal dont know anything.
    Did you used to think like this before you left?

    Change is what we wanted and change is what we have now. Though I am just an arm-chair activist wid no political affiliations – I am excited to see new faces rather than age-old corrupt political leaders who were easier to be used by traffickers.We dont need those who drafted 46′s constitution anyway – it didnt work.

    Unheard laments of deaths in ‘Tarai unrest’ is now screaming in CA results.People’s rejection over ‘Koirala dynasty’, fall of ambivalent old ‘Nepal’, increase in women’s participation both in voting and candidacy … all demonstrates the power of democratic process and improved awareness.

    I am optimistic.
    Hope the case of ‘royal massacre’ will be reopened and Gyane will be taken straight to jail.
    If they could control rampant corruption and dig all those whitened money here – that would be a good start – we dont need to look for foreign aids to build NayaNepal.

    Even the legendary ‘Valmiki’ was once ‘Ratnakara’ in some part of his life.

    See the overall, there may be few mistakes, I will give 99 percent in people verdict. Bijaya Kumar gachhedar babban singh and few others turned lucky. I don’t know whether the victory of Upendra Yadav to be cursed or Defeat of Sujata to be rejoiced.

    agree with JAINEPAL.. people like Baban singh winning is something that shows the poor level of knowledge and education among nepali people. i wonder what our new laws will be… it is ludicrous… insane such ppl winning…

    Lots of people are confuse here. This election is not to make government and make nepal better place. This election is for constitute assembly election. People who are nomiated from here is going to make our laws. And I am really not happy that killers and who are marked as red corner notice from UN are going to make our nepal’s Law. BABAN SINGH who is responsible for several Bomb blast in kathmandu and responisble for GAUR Hatya Kanda is nomiated by we Nepali People. Is this the Nepal People Power.??

    well said Nischal. Hope you are doign fine! There is a lot to learn for NC and UML. This is vote against incumbent and monarcy. NC and UML were ambivalent about the fate of monarcy. People did not like that dilemma and crashed those old leaders who never tursted the the younger generation. If the Maoists compromise the with the King, they will be sent back to the Jungle again. You are righ – do not discount the People’s Pwer.
