माओवादी–एमाले–काँङ्ग्रेस : विदेशीका लागि आफैँ सिद्धिने राजनीति

दीपक गजुरेल — जसरी पनि सत्तामा जाने चाहनाले हाम्रा राजनीतिक शक्तिहरूलाई अराजनीतिक मात्र होइन, लगभग आपराधिक बनाइदिने गरेको छ । यस क्रममा एक पछि अर्को गर्दै हाम्रा सबै महत्वपूर्ण राष्ट्रिय संस्थाहरू कमजोर पारिए, समाप्त पारिए, हामीलाई नै हतियार बनाएर । प्रहरी, प्रशासन, व्यवस्थापिका, सेना, न्यायपालिका, राजनीतिक दलहरू, नेताहरू, संस्कृति, धर्म, परम्परा, सबैलाई कमजोर पारियो वा मासियो नै, केही गर्नै नसक्ने गरी, फेरि उठ्नै नसक्ने गरी । एउटा शक्ति अर्का विरूद्ध प्रयोग भएर क्रमै सँग एक–अर्कालाई मास्ने विदेशी दाउ रोकिएको छैन नेपाली राजनीतिमा । हामी विदेशीको स्वार्थका लागि आपसमा लड्दैछौँ । अबको लडाइँ कसका विरुद्ध, कसलाई हतियार बनाएर, कसरी गराइन्छ भन्ने थाहा पाइञ्ज्याल हामी अझ कमजोर भैसक्ने निश्चित छ ।

While the south has long denigrated our assertions of national sovereignty as a brazen display of the ‘China card’, the north has left us wilting in the winds. When it’s show time, they (Chinese) have always advised us to remain in India’s good books. A one-time grant of petrol, arms to crush the Maoist rebels, 600 sacks of salt – we know the drill.

नरेन्द्र मोदीको नेपाल प्रति बक्रदृष्टि

शम्भुराम जोशी — भूकम्पको पीडाले थलिएको छिमेकी प्रति मोदीको त्यो व्यवहारलाई किन अमानवीय कदम नभन्ने ? नाकाबन्दीका कारण नेपालको अर्थव्यवस्था चरमरायो र रु. २२० अर्व भन्दा बढीको नोक्सानी मात्रै भएन कि गरिबी पनि बढ्यो । नेपाल सार्वभौमसत्ता सम्पन्न भएकाले यो जोसँग पनि आफ्ना ढंगले सम्वन्ध राख्न सक्दछ भन्ने उनीहरूले बुझ्नुपर्छ । पोखरामा बेलुनमा कालो झन्डा उडाएर केही समय अगाडि नेपालमा आएका भारतका तत्कालीन राष्ट्रपति प्रणव मुखर्जीलाई देखाइएको धेरै भएको छैन ।
