Western in­flu­ence in the gov­ern­ment?

People's Review - - FRONT PAGE - By Our Re­porter

Along with ap­point­ment of Yubraj Khati­wada as the fi­nance min­is­ter in the present KP Sharma Oli led cab­i­net, ob­servers have started to say that the Oli gov­ern­ment is nei­ther pro-In­dia nor pro-China but it is a pro-west. PM Oli, un­der the de­sign of the West, had ap­pointed Khati­wada as the fi­nance min­is­ter. Jana Aastha ver­nac­u­lar weekly, run by noted jour­nal­ist and edi­tor Kishor Shrestha, act­ing chair­man of the Press Coun­cil Nepal, who is learnt to have closed to the UML, has re­ported that UNDP Kath­mandu chief was strongly lob­by­ing for Khati­wada's ap­point­ment as the fi­nance min­is­ter. Af­ter the ap­point­ment, the UNDP of­fi­cer had felt a great sat­is­fac­tion and re­marked, "Now, it will be­come easy for us to work ". Po­lit­i­cal ob­servers claim that Khati­wada is closed to dif­fer­ent INGOs and al­ways he is tak­ing ben­e­fit from these INGOs. He will serve the Western in­ter­ests af­ter all, they say. Western­ers have been able to im­pose the present con­sti­tu­tion by dis­man­tling our cul­ture, re­li­gion and tra­di­tional val­ues – Hindu King­dom. Western­ers are se­ri­ously wor­ried from pos­si­ble fail­ure of their agen­das in Nepal. There­fore, first of all, they want to in­sti­tu­tion­al­ize sec­u­lar­ism, fed­er­al­ism and re­pub­li­can­ism as symp­toms have been seen on fail­ure of the con­sti­tu­tion. By bring­ing their own man, the western­ers are think­ing to pro­vide loan to in­sti­tu­tion­al­ize sec­u­lar­ism, fed­er­al­ism and re­pub­li­can­ism. The gov­ern­ment is all set to ap­ply for tril­lions of ru­pees worth loan to meet the in­creased ex­pen­di­ture while mak­ing func­tional fed­er­al­ism and re­pub­li­can­ism in the coun­try. Like­wise, PM Oli and Maosit Cen­ter chair­man Push­paka­mal Da­hal are try­ing to please the western­ers by bring­ing Upen­dra Ya­dav as the for­eign min­is­ter, say po­lit­i­cal ob­servers. Ya­dav is the cam­paigner of fed­er­al­ism. He, un­der the western in­flu­ence, had cam­paigned fed­er­al­ism. If Ya­dav will be­come the for­eign min­is­ter, it will ob­vi­ously ben­e­fit the Western­ers, say ob­servers. Al­though, In­di­ans be­lieve that the present gov­ern­ment is closed to China, it seems, rather than China, the gov­ern­ment is un­der the strong in­flu­ence of the West, say po­lit­i­cal ob­servers. Oth­er­wise, at the time when the Left al­liance gov­ern­ment are en­joy­ing com­fort­able ma­jor­ity to form the gov­ern­ment, why Oli and Da­hal are try­ing their best to bring Ya­dav in the gov­ern­ment, the very ob­servers ques­tion. "Very qui­etly and very wisely western­ers have cap­tured the gov­ern­ment," they re­mark.
