Sudha: Autocracy On The Name Of Democracy

Autocracy On The Name Of Democracy

By Sudha

Irresponsible attitude of the leaders of responsible political parties has polluted all the sectors, writes Rahashya weekly in its editorial. The latest and burning example of this is the boycott of the Court by the Nepal Bar Association. The Association, which is highly influenced by the (political) parties, even attempted to perform non-cooperation to the Court, this is unfortunate. Journalism sector, which is known as the fourth estate, has also been polluted. A section of human right activists are running after the political parties as like the political activist. Likewise, the so-called leaders of civic society are also doing the same. They are creating a mess to the definition of human rights, democracy and freedom. The state should be able to punish those who are running behind wrong thinking. Otherwise, on the name of democracy, autocracy will be existed and the democracy will be ended.

The boycott campaign of the seven political parties has not only irritated the citizens in the metropolis but also made surprise to the international community, reports Rahashya weekly. Even the UK Ambassador, Blum Field, has indirectly advised the seven agitating parties to take part in polls by saying that polls as the movement of democracy.

According to him, to create doubt on free and fair polls prior to the polls was not a democratic thought.

Whatever efforts will be made to disturb the upcoming polls by the seven political parties and the Maoists, they will not get success on this. The government is committed for conducting polls by making strong the security situation in municipalities.

reliable source has disclosed that a foreign country has provided a huge amount of money to the seven agitating parties to success their agitation, Hindu weekly reports.

This was disclosed by a leader of a party involved in agitation. The leader was informing about this to one of his relatives.

To recall, in later days, the attendance of the people in mass meetings have been declined and to create mass, the agitating parties are bringing people from other parts of the country. This is not an odd that those political leaders and Maoists are being mobilized under the foreign guidance. These leaders are not only continuing agitation against the government but also creating trouble to the country under the foreign money as well as foreign guidance.

The country is on the eve of polls. Within 28 days, polls for municipalities are to take place in 58 municipals. After February 1, 2005, the security situation is improved and thus the election has become possible, writes Hindu weekly in its editorial.

The Election Commission has expressed the commitment to conduct polls in free and fair manner. In such a situation, those, who are afraid from polls, obviously try to disturb polls and create terror to the local people.

If we discard foreign guidance and think for the betterment of the country, all the political parties and communities should participate the upcoming polls. We have to pave the way through polls. In fact, the wish of the Nepalese people is also the same. They want to see peace instead of violence and conflict. At this hour, we should not attempt to humiliate the morale of the national security rather, we need to boost their morale and support them. This will be for the betterment of all of us. Security is essential for all and if the security network is strong, the foreign elements cannot create any conspiracy against our nation.

the seven agitating parties with the aim of not giving rights to the people, are going to developed a seven-member common networking. That networking will try to capture people's right within them, reports Rooprekha weekly.

At a time when as per the commitment and wish of the King, the municipal polls are going to take place on 8 February and people are egger to participate in the polls. In the mean time, the seven parties have started campaign against electing the people's representatives. The People's Right, which has secured by the Constitution, is being violated by the political parties for several years. Nepalese people have strong belief on Constitutional Monarchy and multiparty democracy, against that, the agitating parties, without the people's consent, have put forward different demands whereas the people are demanding for peace and security and elected people's representatives' rule in the country.
