Upendra Bharti & Sagar Thapa | HENB | Delhi-Kathmandu | Aug 3, 2016:: CPN Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has been elected the new Prime Minister of Nepal. The former Maoist rebel chief Prachanda, who led a decade-long insurgency that toppled a Hindu monarchy, as prime minister on Wednesday after predecessor K.P. Oli resigned rather than face defeat in a vote of no confidence.
Speaker Onsari Gharti Magar announced that Dahal was elected the Prime Minister as he garnered more votes than 50 per cent of current strength of the Parliament. Prachanda was elected as Nepal PM under Chinese influence and Indian indulgence. Critics say that the inaction of India felicitated Nepal as a Maoist State, not a Hindu one.
Dahal was backed by the largest party in the House, Nepali Congress, constituents of the United Democratic Madhesi Front and the Federal Alliance and some other fringe parties.
Total 210 lawmakers including those of CPN-UML and and Pro-Hindu Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal had cast votes against the Maoist leader.
Total 298 votes were needed for Dahal to be elected the PM from the existing 595 members of the House. Pushpa Kamal Dahal, 61, who still uses a nom de guerre that means “Fierce”, won 363 votes out of the 573 cast in the 595-member parliament, Speaker Onsari Gharti said. Other 22 members in the Nepal parliament were absent in the day of voting. While Prachand got 63.35% votes of the present members 36.65% votes went against the Maoist leader.
Prachanda becomes the 24th prime minister in 26 years since the Himalayan nation adopted multi-party democracy in 1990 and the eighth since the 239-year-old Hindu monarchy (the only Hindu State in the world) was abolished eight years ago. Prachand served as the Prime Minister of the country from 2008 to 2009.
Dahal led the CPN (M) as it launched a communist insurgency on 13 February 1996. In the ensuing civil war (1996 to 2006), more than 19,000 Nepalese killed. Ultimately elections were held in 2008 and the CPN (M) emerged as the strongest party. The Constituent Assembly of Nepal elected Dahal as Prime Minister in August 2008. He resigned as Prime Minister on 4 May 2009 after his attempt to sack the army chief, General Rookmangud Katawal, was opposed by the then President Ram Baran Yadav.
In his first tenure of prime-ministership Prachanda tried his level best to pose Nepal as a pro-chinese and anti-Indian state void from respecting the traditional Hindu relationship between Nepal and Bharat. Moreover, in his 1st tenure of PM-ship the Muslim population of Nepal and the rate of Christian conversion were increased. Prachanda never thought cow-slaughter as a crime in Nepal.
Experts on Indo-Nepal strategical matters say that the return of Prachanda in Nepal as PM will increase the Maoist insurgency in India and Nepal may be used as a close Chinese base to disturb India in various ways in the fields of safety-security and illegal economic invasion.
