Many of Nepal's businessmen are engaged in politics . Which is why some political parties are doing much better than businesses. This is also the reason why Prachanda, Baburam, Mahara, and company have started a political party instead of a business. In a practical sense, the Maoists operate as a business rather than a political party. In fact, it is proven by the lifestyle of some of its leaders. The watch on his wrist and the fountain pen of the Maoist CEO, it is no less than the CEO of a multinational company.
And just like family-run businesses, leaders' relatives have important positions in the party. The party is run like Prachanda's private fiefdom where whatever he decides goes. Such is his personality cult that the party's mission, vision, and goal are all named after Prachanda himself. Posters depicting Prachandapath are plastered all over the country.
Like other companies, the Maoists follow the doctrine of the four 'P's. First is profit, in the pursuit of which they have actually sent a lot of people to the Pearly Gates and threatened, intimidated, extorted just about every other business in this country. This 'aggressive marketing' technique has borne results.
The second P is power under which the party needs to get to power by hook or by crook. The third P is postering and they have draped the country in posters. The fourth P is the forthcoming poll, which the Maoists want to win at all costs. Congratulations to the Maoists & Co Pvt Ltd for carrying on with such a splendid business and successful business model.
