Once upon a time…when the Maoists had reward on their heads
The Maoists instead of letting the same old bourgeoisie and corrupts form the government in a New Nepal better actively involve themselves in making an alliance with the United Marxists Leninists(UML). However, it’s unnecessary on the part of the Maoists to put forward conditions to other parties. The UML leadership must also understand that it’s better to support the Maoists if the latter accepts democratic principles than the opportunist alliance of NC and Forum.
Since the people are fed up with incompetence of other parties, they wish to test how the Maoists run the show. If the Maoists deliver, then they need not worry that others would dare toppling the government. Besides, since the Maoists do not command the majority, they should not expect to implement their party policies.
If the Maoists would only deliver corruption-free governance within democratic norms and create an environment conducive for economic activities, they can be sure of getting the majority in the next election.
Now that Nepali Maoists wish to show a new path to their comrades the world over, let the Maoists prove themselves!
