Our Government at Work: Inconclusively

Blogdai waxed nostalgic today. I just finished reading how yet another high level government meeting “ended inconclusively” and began to reminisce about how many times this has happened during the last decade under this government’s watch.

The more I think of it EVERYTHING that brings these corrupt idiots to the negotiating table ends inconclusively. In fact, blogdai is hard pressed to come up with anything over the past 5 years that this congress has been able to agree and act upon.

Haven’t we gotten the message yet? These guys are so incompetent, they can’t even agree on what day it is. All of us have known about this supreme "enactile dysfunction" for a while; yet, even when the world is watching-- basically giving them a clean slate so they can prove their worth-- these buffoons can’t seem get past their same old bickering ineptness. Bad timing seems to be the one hallmark that defines this gaggle of clueless idiots.

The Yanks, Euros and even the Indians are beginning to express their frustration publicly.
Even journalists are starting to realize there’s something rotten in Singha Durbar. Read M. R. Josse’s good article at for a better sense of how long this has been going on and the mounting frustration among journalists and commentators.

Anyway, back to my nostalgia. Just for kicks, I Googled “Nepal Inconclusive” and returned a whopping 33,800 hits. My, our boys have been busy.

Blogdai can’t list them all here, but here are a few just from the month of September and just from the Google news segment., Sept. 27: “ A meeting of the top leaders of the seven parties held Thursday afternoon to find a way out of the current political stalemate ended inconclusively. According to C.P Mailani, general secretary of the CPN (Marxist Leninist), the meeting held at Baluwatar lasted just ten minutes and didn't discuss any of the issues raised by the Maoists”

Washingon Times, Sept 19: “ An emergency meeting of the eight-party alliance was inconclusive, with the rebels sticking to their demands.”

Rising Nepal, Sept.16: “Referring to the meeting between the Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala and Maoist Chairman Prachanda in the morning, he said that the meeting was inconclusive. The Prime Minister kept mum on declaring republic and adopting proportional electoral system.”

Rising Nepal Sept. 12: “The Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee…..remained inconclusive on the names of eight ambassadors at its meeting held Wednesday.”

By blogdai’s calculation, Girija’s new congress holds an inconclusive meeting an average of four times a month!

So, dear readers, I now issue a challenge to you all: Find just ONE thing that this new congress has accomplished for the good of Nepal and you’ll get special recognition and a free column to air your opinions here at blogdai. Just ONE! All they seem to be able to act upon are petty measures to punish the King, like yesterday’s removal of his guards. But punishing the King doesn’t count here. They could kill him and it wouldn’t improve a thing in Nepal. No, find me an edict, national directive, law, decree or anything that shows these corrupt fools are paying attention to the needs of citizens and you win!

Simple, right? Let's see. Give it a try.

The removal of guards is by complicit agreement of the Army to the order of an illegal, unelected government. The Army have consciously chosen to kow-tow the them and treat these bunch of unrepresentative congress for what they are not. The Army’s logic could not fathom that a group of people cannot be considered representative of the masses even for a minute without an election for which I see no possibility.

Really the true beneficiaries of the CA elections being postponed are the MAOISTS! It’s as simple as that. As worthless as the other parties are they still have their support bases around the country. The Maoists on the other hand would have done miserably in free and fair elections. It’s no suprise that they have orcastrated this drama to defer the CA elections into the future. They have already shown that they have no intentions of functioning within a democratic framework.

"So, dear readers, I now issue a challenge to you all: Find just ONE thing that this new congress has accomplished for the good of Nepal"

Given that New Congress has only existed for two weeks you are being somewhat demanding, aren't you?

If you would like some notable NC achievements please read on:

(1) Madhesi Janadhikar Forum (MJF) 22 point agreement springs to mind as quite an achievement.
(2) NC are also responsible for bringing in new legislation that states that women do not need men to gain their citizenship.
(3) Oh, and NC are mostly responsible for the Maoists joining the peace process. You can say what you like about the reality of this action but it has done much for Nepal in that it is far better to be at peace than to be at war. Wouldn't you agree?

I could go on but I doubt you would like me to do so.

When can i start writing my post?

excellent effort and blogdai thanks you!

Let's get to it.

1. The MJF rejected the 22 point agreement as "meaningless" today, so that can be interpereted as hollow politicking now. Plus, no implementation strategy was ever cohesively enacted.

2. NC didn't bring the maoists to any process they didn't want to be a part of -- and manipulate in the first place. More hollow politicking since the Maoists are gone.

The bottom line is, none of the above two things stand to benefit the average citizen, or in a larger sense, Nepal as a whole. Both were political maneuvers that are now dead.

3. Now, give me some information on this women's legislation here. This is a good one and you just may have ol' blogdai captured by the short-hairs. I've heard of it, yes, but give me some more details. What I'm looking for is whether or not this was enacted as a political tool to gain leverage or, is their an actual program with actual funding that leads to actual implementation. Educate me here!

Either way, I think it's a good one and I now place you in the lead!

Mr. Blog dai, what this fool guy talking about this congress being two weeks old only? This the same kukurs who been in government for 10 year so what is this NEW government?

NC bought the Maoists into the mainstream because they were desperate and had nowhere else to turn to. The Maoists needed the NC and the rest of the SPA fools to legitimize them! So Indelcise (or should I call you Girija ko Chumcha) go back and think again.

Maybe you should also consider what the NC failed to achieve since 1990 when they were in power and when they were in a position to take this country in a positive direction. Out of all the political parties the congress had a chance and they blew it again and again!

Expecting good thing with NC is useless dream. They got the chance since 60 years and everytime they failed. Now they got almost full authority, look how the situation is worsening more and more. Girija was responsible for maoist insurgency and killing 14,000 people and now he is responsible for bringing ethnic war and killings in terai. I think he will die only after seeing 2 to 3 lacs dead body in his reign.
