Ag­i­ta­tion sea­son starts

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

Nepal is a unique coun­try hav­ing dif­fer­ent po­lit­i­cal char­ac­ter. Ev­ery time, the po­lit­i­cal ag­i­ta­tions start after the fes­ti­val sea­son (Da­sain, Ti­har and Ch­hat) and ends along with the be­gin­ning of the rainy sea­son. The ag­i­ta­tion launched dur­ing the rainy sea­son has never be­come force­ful and de­ci­sive. There­fore, the po­lit­i­cal par­ties in ag­i­ta­tion will wait for the end of the fes­ti­val sea­son to be­gin their ag­i­ta­tion once more. The Ras­triya Janata Party (RJP) has al­ready warned the gov­ern­ment that it will launch a fresh ag­i­ta­tion after the fes­ti­val sea­son is over. First of all, the party is think­ing to with­draw its sup­port to the gov­ern­ment. Then if the con­sti­tu­tion is not amended as per the agree­ment be­tween the RJP and the gov­ern­ment, the RJP plans to launch an ag­i­ta­tion for ful­fill­ing its de­mands. RJP is ex­pect­ing the Nepali Congress' sup­port as dif­fer­ent NC lead­ers have warned the gov­ern­ment to heat the streets if the gov­ern­ment will con­tinue to prac­tice au­thor­i­tar­ian rule. To heat the streets, NC also needs sup­port from RJP and oth­ers.

In­dian gen­eral elec­tions and Nepali pol­i­tics:

The In­dian lead­ers are en­gaged in their do­mes­tic pol­i­tics as very soon, In­dia is go­ing for a gen­eral elec­tion. There is no BJP wave this time as like in the pre­vi­ous gen­eral elec­tions, how­ever, due to the weak per­for­mance of the In­dian Na­tional Congress, BJP ex­pects to re­main as the largest party and form the BJP gov­ern­ment for yet an­other term. Cur­rently, the In­dian lead­ers are un­able to con­cen­trate in Nepali pol­i­tics but if In­dian PM Naren­draModi will get chance to rule the coun­try for the next term, he may in­tro­duce a strong Nepal pol­icy, which will be against Chris­tian­ity, cam­paign­ing of the West and also against in­creas­ing pres­ence of China in Nepal, say po­lit­i­cal ob­servers. Such a Nepal pol­icy could be counter-pro­duc­tive for the com­mu­nist gov­ern­ment se­cur­ing twothirds ma­jor­ity here, say po­lit­i­cal ob­servers. NC and even RJP are keenly watch­ing po­lit­i­cal de­vel­op­ments in In­dia and they are keenly wait­ing for the In­dian elec­tion re­sults.
