They Don't Know How to Govern, Period.

They don't know how to lead, and they don't want to be put under pressure. They just want to return to the days when all they had to do was sit in their chairs and pretend to be important.

Their country is burning and they can't even sit down and discuss issuse that will determine their own political fates.

They have no idea what they are doing and never have.

In times of political crises like we see in Nepal today, real leaders sit down, lock the doors, and find a compromised solution to save their country. They do no take "recess" and they do not give up after one hour of mindless chit chat.

Yet another meeting has ended "inconclusively" today:

Top level meeting ends inconclusively

A top level meeting of the seven parties held at Prime Minister’s official residence in Baluwatar Monday morning ended without taking any concrete decision.
During the meeting that ended within an hour the top leaders discussed about announcing a fresh date for constituent assembly election and implementing the proposals passed by the special session of the interim parliament, among others issues.
Although the meeting was expected to make headway in building some kind of political compromise, the Nepali Congress and the Maoists stuck to their respective positions.
However, the meeting was significant on one aspect as the leaders agreed to continue the ongoing dialogue for forging a consensus on holding the election by April next year while keeping the seven party unity intact.
At the meeting the Maoist leaders proposed a review of all past agreements and move forward with a new understanding.
The meeting came ahead of the regular winter session of the interim parliament that begins at 3 pm today. ag Nov 19 07

People of Nepal: Get these idiots out of Singha Durbar NOW, while you still have a country.

This syndicate spam had failed two times to held the CA election. They are planning to stick in parliament and government till their death or until Nepal turn into no-nation. How long our tax payed money they can use for nothing. Each born child of today in Nepal has to bear Rs. 15,000 loan in his head for nothing. This is totally illegal government, they will continue till sun and moon in the sky will remain if we allow them. Trusting their lied assurances is like trusting to the foxex or heynas.

The government is incompetent - agreed. Its filled with old farts who would like to do nothing more than sit around, drink tea and chit chat, unless someone threatens their god-given right to do it - agreed. They need to get out of Singha Durbar - definitely.

But, blog dai, who is going to do it? These are the only so called leaders this country has. Are you hoping for a military/royalist coup? Do you really think that an authoritarian rule by an archaic institution is really in the interests of the nation? Surely not.

So then, who is going to do it? Are you? Am I?

The 'spam' is indeed the manifestation of colossal incompetence. But, unfortunately, after a decade of democratic experimentation, this is the best we could come up with. So is it not our failure then?

I realize i sound utterly fatalistic. Such are the times.

No, No and again No.

This is NOT the best Nepal can do. We have been conditioned by the corrupt practices of those in power to take no interest in politics and accept our lot. Poor, lazy Nepal.

These old idiots are NOT the only leaders in our country. Many, many Nepalis have good ideas for Nepal; only, under Girija's "democracy" dissent has been suppressed to the point that no one will speak out. (how very Chinese). If sitting around and drinking tea while doing nothing is the definition of leadership in Nepal, then all of us must be imminently qualified!

If these old farts are considered leaders, name me one example they've shown that demonstrates their leadership skills.

But to simply state that oh well, "such are the times.." is quitting. If all Nepalis believe this then we don't deserve a country of our own.

Change is difficult. But blogdai thinks it is not as difficult as many of you believe. Any grass-roots movement that puts the needs of all Nepalis in front of the greedy maoists or SPA would have an immediate impact on the political arena. Just a handful of good and just voices would start a ground-swell off support.

Is it dangerous? Yes. Is it controversial? Surely. But eventually we must ask ourselves if we want a free and independent Nepal or the same old repressive business as usual. Is it worth being uncomfortable for a few years to achieve this? Heaven forbid, this will mean placing the needs of an entire country before our own selfish immediate concerns. Can we do it?

We are lazy losers if we don't try.

Again, I am not against the fact that change is required. If we are to ever get out of the state we are in, it is not going to be under any regime that has these goons. So a grass-roots movement is indeed what is required.

But, but but. We cannot expect a spontaneous outburst of anger to arise and throw them out(In fact, we should not, coz again some old farts will channel it to their own interests.) There needs to be a deliberate movement led by these very competent people that you spoke about.

My point is, realistically speaking, who and where are these competent people. Why does this potential leadership not show itself? Why is there not a sustained movement against this incompetence already out on the streets? What is it waiting for? Of course you'll agree that any protests led by any of the parties in the current government, is simply political arm-twisting at its Nepali best.

So, as long as these, potentially competent but as yet hidden, leaders show themselves and do anything useful. These tea sipping octogenarians are the de facto leaders by virtue of the fact that they led a movement that toppled an unpopular regime and put them in power. They're incompetent buffoons, but they've led the people and will continue to do so unless we have alternatives.

There is saying in Nepal "Nappaune le ke payo bokra suddha chapayo.... " Why they didnot wait till CA to decide many things. Now many things are being made complicated due to their visionless major changes in politics in the name of removing the power of the king. Due to there visionless politics, the unity of the country is almost collapse and country is going to suffer more with the ethnic wars in coming days if we let them continue.

Who is to be blamed for this, definately Girija and goons..

I donot accept that we have to continue with the failed leaders and there is no choice. If we really want unity then NA should come front with the ethnic parties and king should stay behind the scene as ceremonial only. The country will be ruled by different ethnic groups according to their share. If Yadav can be the leader of terai within 3 months then why not others ?
