RJP-N and FSF al­liance in the In­dian in­ter­ests

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

The In­dian de­sign was to iso­late the UML, India's strong critic at least for ten years from which UML would be fin­ished. How­ever, UML chair­man KP Oli be­came suc­cess­ful to forge Left al­liance with the longterm plan of uni­fi­ca­tion of the two par­ties – UML and Maoist Cen­ter -- and rul­ing the coun­try for five years by keep­ing the demo­cratic forces aloof from power. It be­came a big sur­prise to the In­di­ans who are in­volved in mi­cro-man­age­ment in Nepal. In­di­ans are se­ri­ously wor­ried from the politi­cal devel­op­ment of late in Nepal. Ac­cord­ing to sources, the In­di­ans have cal­cu­lated that the Left al­liance can eas­ily bag sim­ple ma­jor­ity in the pro­vin­cial and fed­eral par­lia­ment elec­tions and rule the coun­try for five years. Then af­ter, In­di­ans made ef­forts to de­velop demo­cratic al­liance among the six par­ties but the In­di­ans wished to play a new strat­egy by de­vel­op­ing al­liance be­tween Ras­triya-Janata Party Nepal led by Ma­hant Thakur and Fed­eral So­cial­ist Al­liance led by Upen­dra-Ya­dav. Not to for­get, the out­stand­ing In­dian de­sign is to make a strong pres­ence of the Tarai lead­ers in the cen­tral par­lia­ment. Af­ter the al­liance be­tween RJP-N and FSF, the Tarai lead­ers are bar­gain­ing for more seats for them with the Nepali Congress. The re­al­ity is that if the two Tarai based par­ties will con­test elec­tions jointly, they will be able to de­stroy NC's vote bank in the Tarai dis­tricts. The two Tarai based par­ties have de­cided to share 50 per­cent seats by each party and form their own govern­ment in prov­ince No 2 and mak­ing strong pres­ence in the cen­tral par­lia­ment with the ca­pac­ity of hold­ing the key of the rul­ing party. NC in dilemma: The Left al­liance will sweep in the hill con­stituen­cies and when the two Tarai based par­ties de­vel­oped an al­liance in the Tarai dis­tricts, most of the NC can­di­dates will be de­feated in the core Tarai dis­tricts. There­fore, there was left no other op­tions with­out de­vel­op­ing al­liance with the Tarai based par­ties for NC. The Tarai based par­ties in al­liance are say­ing that the two par­ties plus NC could share 33 per­cent posts if NC will de­velop al­liance, how­ever, the NC lead­ers are un­able to ac­cept such a pro­posal put for­ward by the two Tarai based par­ties in al­liance. In this re­gard, it is ob­vi­ous that NC may fall into third-po­si­tion in the up­com­ing elec­tions. If things will go as-itis, the Left al­liance will bag nec­es­sary ma­jor­ity en­sur­ing for­ma­tion of a Left govern­ment giv­ing five years' ten­ure to it. NC may re­main in op­po­si­tion and the Tarai par­ties will have pres­ti­gious pres­ence with the ca­pac­ity of strong bar­gain­ing power in the cen­tral par­lia­ment whereas the Tarai based par­ties will form their govern­ment in No 2 prov­ince.
