Today the Indian Government (Indian National congress and the commies of India) ‘officially’ accepted that they want election in Nepal – ‘fair’ or ‘unfair’ one does not matter. Indian Ambassador Shiv Shanker Mukherjee Wednesday said that Nepal could “set its own example” on the issue of holding timely elections to the Constituent Assembly (CA). “Finalising election policies to meet international standards is not a priority issue.” First question would be, who is the Indian Envoy to question or to tell the Nepalis on how ‘legitimate’ or ‘internationally accepted’ the elections in Nepal should be? Never mind.
International standards demand that governments announce election dates 120 days or 4 months ahead of the actual day. And there are only 70 days left till the ‘supposed’ day (June 20, 2007) of constituency assembly elections.
We agree that the elections in India are not the most democratic affairs and booth capturing and vote rigging is a common practice but why is the Indian government so adamant at having elections in Nepal when the latter country is going through a virtual civil war? Why is Indian government so adamant at having a ‘legitimate’ puppet government in Nepal which doesn’t even carry any popular support? They already have a government currently in Nepal which is toe-toeing with them. Why is the Indian government ready to accept the elections when the UN and the US embassies and even the Nepali politicians (of criminal SPAM parties) have accepted that these are ‘Abnormal circumstances’ and the voting would be Abnormal? When there are gun trotting gangs roaming freely and intimidating people no elections are going to be had in a ‘free’ and ‘fair’ manner? Nepal is under a virtual civil war with murders and extortion taking place rampant. The Constituent Assembly elections are supposed to be a decisive phase in Nepal’s history and if these elections are not held in ‘free’ and ‘fair’ manner than the entire foundation of ‘Naya (new) Nepal’ (that the Indians and SPAM parties of Nepal) want to make will be illegitimate and weak. When there are the gangs of SPAM parties roaming around freely around the country and threatening everyone that even raises a voice to question them, how are the elections going to be held fairly? So does the Indian government just want that the people (being intimated by SPAM) go out and vote for the SPAM parties without knowing what their ‘manifesto’ is? Around 80% of the electorate in Nepal doesn’t even know the meaning of ‘constituent assembly’ and yet the Indian government is Desperate to have elections in Nepal! If they just want the elections for the ‘Sake’ of it than why are they evening making such a ‘fuss’ because of which Nepalis are getting killed everyday? Why don’t they just go ahead and have elections Now, so that the killings stop and we Nepalis for once start accepting ourselves as the 36th state of India!
Not only the above, the Indian government goes on to say that, Nepal could set its own examples in this regards as it had done during the peace process. How Democratic of you Honorable Ambassador. If you mean the ‘Peace’ process in Nepal has indeed taken place we would ask you to drop the ‘terrorist’ charges against the ‘Kashmiri’ insurgents or the ‘Naxalites’ and make peace with them. Here you are forcing us to accept the terrorists (funded by you) hook or crook and you wouldn’t do the same in your own den! These terrorists kill us day in and day out!
The entire Internationally accepted principles of elections are going to be thrown into the dustbin just because India and SPAM parties want the elections in these ‘abnormal’ circumstances…
How can a Democratic country like India say that SPAM parties can do whatever they want? There is Nepal beyond SPAM parties and we need to act freely and independently to decide our Own
Perhaps India (Indian National Congress) is too desperate to have ‘legitimate’ puppets in Nepal and too desperate to get rid of ’anyone’ that questions it’s hegemonies in Nepal.
We call upon you Honorable Indian Ambassador to Nepal, Mr Mukherjee, to accept some ‘Democratic’, ‘Ethical’ and ‘Peaceful’ principles and allow the Nepalis to decide their own fate in ‘Free’, ‘Fair’ and ‘Fearless’ manner. Such comments coming from the mouth of a ‘Responsible’ country doesn’t suit, especially when the entire world is thinking the opposite.
Perhaps you need to check the article on how the terrorists are grabbing Nepali citizenship to ‘influence’ the Nepali elections. How fair of you Mr Ambassador.

Election policies to meet int’l standards not a priority: Indian envoy
KATHMANDU, April 11 – Indian Ambassador Shiv Shanker Mukherjee Wednesday said that Nepal could “set its own example” on the issue of holding timely elections to the Constituent Assembly (CA).
The Indian Ambassador’s statement comes amidst comments from some diplomatic corps in the capital that holding of the CA elections by stipulated time was not possible, and that the election would lose its credibility in front of the world community, if held forcefully.
Talking to reporters after a meeting with Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala this morning, Mukherjee said, “Finalising election policies to meet international standards is not a priority issue” adding that Nepal could set its own examples in this regards as it had done during the peace process.
He further clarified that the Indian government would “support and assist” whatever election date the eight parties decide on.
International standards demand that governments announce election dates 120 days or 4 months ahead of the actual day.
The Indian envoy had called on PM Koirala to discuss border security issues.
According to sources, during the 20-minute long discussion held this morning at the PM’s Baluwatar residence, the duo deliberated ways to strengthen security vigilance at the Indo-Nepal borders.
The Indian Foreign Minister Pranab Mukharjee, during the recently concluded 14th SAARC Summit in New Delhi, had expressed commitment towards making stronger security arrangements to prevent criminal activities in the Terai region, where evidences have pointed towards involvement of Indian criminal elements in the recent string of unruly activities there.
Indian Embassy spokesperson Gopal Bagle informed that the meeting had discussed the latest political developments in Nepal and the challenges that lay ahead.
