Time Closes In
G.P Koirala counts on one hand the number of times he's actually accomplished something for the people of Nepal.
Has the old man had enough? Unprecedented in his career, Girija asks for someone to take over for him as NC president during his upcoming three month vacation. http://kantipuronline.com/kolnews.php?&nid=52558. This comes from a man who has done virtually everything imaginable to increase his own wealth and power.
Assuming that all Nepali's have no memory, Koirala tries his best to be sneaky by saying that he's going "outside the country" for a health check up and a little relaxation. Gee, do you think he means Belize?
Old Girija took a nasty fall during one of his recent demonstrations against "regression." The old boy got banged-up pretty good. When you're 82 years old, falling down in the street might be just enough to take the fire out of you. Blogdai thinks Girija is going to India to retire and fade away.
Seems like a lot of the Koiralas are taking this route. Number 2, Sushil turned down a high post in the NC this week for no apparent reason other than boredom. If that pattern holds, maybe we'll see Sujata opening up a hair salon in Delhi in the near future.
