Ministers in the formal royal cabinet have alleged that the cabinet chair played the main role in suppressing the people's movement. This means that the high-level Rayamajhi investigation commission now faces the challenge of getting a statement from the king.
While some members of the commission have proposed sending a written questionnaire to the king, others say that that he would not be answering those questions. A few of the members of the commission say that the king who came down to Narayanhiti Palace from the Nagarjun Palace on Tuesday to receive the Egyptian ambassador, may give an audience to the chairman and one member of the commission but may not answer questions. The commission has called the palace secretary Pashupati Bhakta Maharjan to its office on Thursday to figure out the king's mood. A case has already been filed against Maharjan, who is chief secretary of the palace. Maharjan relayed orders to the ministers of Home as well as Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs, and he is now accused of ordering the suppression of the Jana Andolan II, and encouraging the king.
