N. P. Upadhyaya; Kathmandu: Extracting political benefits out of the political chaos, fluidity and mayhem in the neighboring countries has become the hallmark of the Indian establishment which gained its independence in 1947 from the British slavery.
India benefitted in the 1950s, 1990s and 2006 from the Nepali instability which were the creation of the RAW spy agency together with its trusted and tested agents in Nepal.
It was a collaboration in fact.
As and when Nepal plunges into political disorder, India manufactures the problem, instigates both the warring sides to fight, financially helps the conflicting ones back in the neighborhood and then at the end devises a planned scheme to patch up the differences in between the warring sides and benefits from such an arbitration.
India thus is a curse for Nepal which has been coined as “India’s Neighborhood first policy”.
The last political upheaval fresh in our minds came to an end through the India drafted so called “Delhi’s 12 point agreement” which did away with the Nepal’s Royal Institution and allowed the “declared Delhi protected Nepal Terrorists” to capture power in Nepal with the tacit support of its own trusted and tested paid men in Nepal-the seven parties summoned in Delhi then.
Thus India creates the problem, makes the political parties or a faction to go on war with the other equally competent political entity and then at the end of the game intervenes into the political milieu as a “peace maker” to which it is never not.
India can go so low easily.
India is the main destabilizer of peace and tranquility in the entire South Asian countries that unfortunately border India.
The Indian spy agency RAW has been pumping in money to both the warring communists in Nepal that is to the thug communists with Prachanda-Madhav duo and the Oli communists with a hope that whosoever wins the ongoing fight-to finish-battle is India’s man.
Undeniably, Prachanda aka Pushpa Kamal Dahal who was in Delhi as Indian government’s guest for well over a decade or so is once again hitting the streets together with one more hundred percent Indo-pendent Nepali leader Madhav Kumar Nepal.
To recall, Madhav Kumar Nepal has the single “distinction” to have enjoyed the Prime Minister ship when he got badly defeated in the parliamentary elections.
India elevated Mr. Nepal to the post of Nepal Prime Minister proving that Nepal is an Indian protectorate or for that matter an Indian province like Bihar.
With Mr. Nepal becoming the Prime Minister of this India controlled country what came to the fore is that “India controls and manages and dictates Nepali political animals to dance to their tunes failing to do so means being toppled down from power corridor.
The July 31, 1950 Treaty of peace and friendship with India allows India to view and perceive Nepal as a junior, inferior and broken partner.
The fact is that the 1950 Treaty with India neither allows peace to prevail in Nepal nor Nepal can have “friendship” with India on an equal footing ever.
Thus the Treaty with India is more like an appendage to Nepal.
Wisdom would demand that such a good-for-nothing bilateral treaty with such a scoundrel and an ungrateful neighbor be made null and void at the earliest and the “borders” that have been “deliberately kept open by Prime Minister Nehru must be fenced or closed for all time to come .
To recall, the final report of the Nepal-India joint Eminent Persons Group (EPG) which was entrusted with the job in finding ways and means to “ease” the bilateral ties with India has been shelved in the Hindutva gang leader Prime Minister Modi’s drawers.
But why Modi shelved the RPG report?
Simply because the EPG members, (mostly India loving personalities from Nepal) had advised India to update the Treaty in the already changed world context.
High placed sources authentically claim that the Nepalese Ambassador to Delhi Mr. Nilambar Acharya, a member of the EPG team, is the choice of Indian PM Modi.
However, this remains yet unsubstantiated.
India, frankly speaking, doesn’t want to allow Nepal to go out from its devilish clasp.
The ongoing communist’s bedlam initiated by the Dahal-Nepal duo which is fighting with the PM Oli government led Communists is nothing but an Indian ploy to bring in an India dependent proxy government in Nepal that is primarily anti-China and obviously India friendly.
If in the present war in between the two thug communists of Nepal, India is winning the game then conversely it means that Nepal and its blind and foolish population are the loser.
The day when late King Tribhuvan fled to Delhi in the early 1950s, India began twisting the Nepali arms and “we the people” were given the impression that India managed to restore democracy in Nepal. It was an illusion in that India made the King strong in the fifties to extract political benefits that continues even as of today.
The influx of the Indian nationals to Nepal to earn money was made easier by the open border mechanism which is what Nehru wanted.
The Indian state is draining $8 billion annually from Nepal, say the statistics.
India solidifies in Nepal:
In the 1990s too, India had differences with sitting King Birendra on questions of national integrity and sovereignty. King Birendra wanted to assert Nepal’s sovereignty which annoyed PM Rajiv Gandhi to a greater extent who then ordered Nepali leaders to “agitate” against the King and also sent some Indian political hooligans including S. Subramanian Swamy and Chandra Shekhar, to Nepal.
These anti-Nepal leaders landed in Kathmandu and threatened the King to step down from active to a constitutional monarch.
The King under tremendous pressure from the Indian nationals and Indian agents in Nepal announced the demise of the Panchayat system together with the birth of a democratic system which multiplied the Indian control of Nepali body politic.
It was this time (after the 1990 political change) when India tried to dismantle the Nepal Army institution through its “agents” in Nepal as mentioned in our last article but failed due to King’s intervention.
The 1990 change brought the real India bend-confidante(s) in politics who in series “sold” all the State enterprises and factories that had been driving Nepal towards industrialization.
And this “serve India” campaign was led by Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala whose “secret” intimacy with the Indian establishment later did away with Nepal’s Monarchy almost forever?
If late Koirala is the one who damaged the country and made Nepal dependent on Indian largesse then the sitting Kings of Nepal were comparatively the ones who took utmost care of the nation and its “India-strangulated” population though in a limited scale.
But late Koirala was thus taken as the “darling” of India for having served India more than Nepal.
The 1990 India instigated political change in Nepal consolidated Indian interests in Nepal almost on a permanent basis with Koirala being the point India man.
The 2005-6 change:
The 2005-6 political change in Nepal was for a “calculated” purpose and that being the dismantling of the Nepal’s Royal institution.
The idea was to discredit the Royal Institution and then to capture entire management and political affairs in Nepal through India trusted men much similar to Lendhup Dorje of independent Sikkim.
For this late Koirala and then Delhi residing Maoists were brought to effective use which at the end of the India sponsored agitation made the sitting monarch to enter into the nearby Jungles and the India trained and indoctrinated ( RAW and Nepal hater Professor SD Muni remained instrumental in training the Nepalese Maoists leaders).
With the monarchy gone, India had a free and unhindered space in Nepali politics because the men who have had captured power in Nepal were all India elevated politicos-the new Lendhups….
Thus India took over the total and complete control of the domestic politics which is what stands today.
PM Oli and his opponents Dahal-Nepal duo both are supposed to have intimate links with India.
Though PM Oli at times gives the impression that he has some soft corner for Beijing which is basically not true.
The fact is that PM Oli draws strength from Delhi establishment from the time of the Mahakali River Treaty signed in the mid-nineties.
KP. Oli was awarded a free coupon for the treatment of his “renal disorder” in Medanta Hospital in Delhi since then.
So it was a grand give and take for Oli and the Indian regime.
The grand design:
The Indian design is to make dysfunctional the entire Constitutional organs of the Nepali State.
With the Monarchy sidelined, the Indian attack now is on the Independent Judiciary and the democratic system if it is.
The manner judiciary and the system is being made the target these days by the aristocratic communists trained and commanded by the Indian regime speaks of the mal-intent of the regional destabilizer-that India is.
The Nepal Army then could be the prime target for which Indian machinations are presumed to be already in action.
However, Nepal Army institution being alert and alarmed on such unexpected eventualities, the Indian design so far has not been able to “deeply” penetrate into the “lungs and heart” of the nepali army.
Had it been so, the NA would have already surrendered to those nefarious designs of the known scoundrel in the South.
Having said so, the Indian regime is yet trying hard to impress upon Nepal Army institution by keeping the meaningless so called tradition of awarding Honorary General decoration to the Indian Army chief.
This tradition is harmful in that as the rumors say, the Indian regime rewards the retired Nepal Army Chiefs some lofty “facilities” which may be harmful to Nepal’s core security interests.
The design of the Indian regime is to keep the Nepal Army as an extension of the Indian army which, if it is so, then it is highly objectionable not only to the Nepali population but also to the Nepal Army also.
The Nepal Army can easily guess as to where we want to hint the Nepal Army and why? The NA men are intelligent enough and thus let’s leave this to the perusal of the Army generals of Nepal.
The present design:
India wants to cash in from the current “heightened” political tussle in between the two indopendent communists each lead by PM Oli and by Dahal-Nepal duo.
India prefers to escalate the tussle to a point wherein it can jump into the fray in the name of “arbitration or say some sort of mediation” much similar to what the previous 12 point agreement means for Nepal.
In the process, the Delhi’s man in Nepal Prachanda first visited Delhi and Bombay (Mumbai) and held talks with Nepal hater Shyam Saran and convinced the latter to intervene into the present Nepal’s political mess which favored Prachanda-Nepal duo crusade against PM Oli.
Shyam Saran is learnt to have assured Prachanda that the Parliament shall be restored.
After Prachanda’s Delhi trip, Mahanta Thakur and Comrade JN Khanal (the snake charmer) went to seek Delhi’s blessings so that they could tame aggressive PM Oli.
And now Delhi’s most intimate man and a close confidante Dr. B. R. Bhattarai is already in Delhi apparently to meet his “mentors” who taught him a lesson on “damage Nepal” which he practiced during his People’s War while residing in Delhi as Indian government’s guest.
This time Dr. Bhattarai will perhaps attune himself with the deposed King Gyanendra “in the name of the nation”.
A clear shift in Anti-King Bhattarai to pro-King Bhattarai. If it is in the name of the nation then it is good or else Dr. Bhattarai is a political persona who can’t be trusted for multiple reasons.
Bhattarai’s political shift vis-à-vis the King which he made in the recent days could be linked to what the Tripura Chief Minister Biplav Dev’s authentic claim that Indian Home Minister Amit Sah wants now BJP’s rule in Nepal and Sri Lanka?
If yes then Bhattarai’s sudden eruption of love for King Gyanendra and Amit Sah’s extension of BJP rule in Nepal would mean that India under Hindutva gang leader PM Modi is all set to restore Nepali monarchy together with a Hindu State.
Is so then the question arises as to whether King Gyanendra who too is shortly visiting Delhi will be told by Indian high authorities to “take over the charge of Nepal”?
If not then why King Gyanendra is visiting Delhi this time when the obtaining political situation demands that he remains inside Nepal. This is a mystery indeed.
Yet another question is: whether Gyanendra would like to be restored as Nepal King by the same Indian government which deposed him so unceremoniously in 2006?
Will he agree to be an India elevated King? Or would prefer to be a king of the people of Nepal?
Okay. India restores Gyanendra as the King of Nepal but on what terms and conditions set by India? Will those conditions be pleasant to King Gyanendra which would most likely be at the cost of the nation? Can such an India elevated King Gyanendra do justice with China and other serious friends in the globe like the United State of America and the EU Countries?
Or will Gyanendra be a king much similar to King Tribhuvan who returned to Nepal as a weak monarch in the 1950s?
RAW meets Nepali leaders: Netra Bikram Chand now prefers talks with PM Oli. What does Delhi wants to signal?
Secondly, Sunday, February 21: Whom the RAW Nepal Chief met at Everest Hotel from 1 45 PM to 5. 45 PM? Were they Madhav and Prachanda? Or someone other than these two communist veterans? So what RAW plans for PM Oli?
What the RAW Plans now? Surely, all the roads now leads to Delhi. Is Nepal a sovereign country then as we proudly claim?
The debate is open. That’s all.
