Not only it is the Shah dynasty that is facing the deserving fate of extinction, it seems like the Koirala dynasty too is heading towards the same direction.
The recent display of incredible greed for power is nothing but an impending omen of disgraceful exit from Nepali politics.
The party is still reeling badly from the defeat in the Constituent Assembly elections. However, it’s time to get over it – accept the people’s verdict and LEAVE the government for good. But, instead of looking forward, these days the party is busy in central committee meetings discussing on how the hell Nepali Congress lost the elections with such a freaking landslide. And the central committee leaders are saying Nepali Congress should still head the next coalition government.
On top of that, president of the party Koirala Giriaj rejected the resignation of Koirala Sushil from the party’s post of acting president. Koirala Sujata (who also lost in the elections) should have resigned from her post of Minister without Portfolio, but she hasn’t done it yet. But it’s pretty evident, Koirala Girija “neo dictator” would not have accepted her resignation either.
Koirala Girija must be in an awkard state of quandary – which Koirala is going to lead Nepali Congress? His brother Koirala Sushil or his daughter Koirala Sujata, or his nephew Koirala Sekhar or his relative Koirala Ashok? All voted out, all rejected by the people.
Nepali Congress is hopeless now. Koirala Shasank (son of BP Koirala and now an elected member of the Constituent Assembly) alone can not lead the party which his father had co-founded. It’s too late. Nepali Congress has almost plunged into the stinking gorge full of Koirala filth.
With a hopeless hope, I hope that Gagan Thapa gets nominated in the Proportional Representation system – but if the party decides to leave him out – Nepali Congress is doomed.
It’s time the Koiralas quit the party – before Supremo Koirala breathes his last – selflessly and with respect intact, handing it over to the younger generations of the leaders. The country could then breathe a sigh a relief instead.
