Maoist weapons have landed in containers and yet everyone is dissatisfied with the number. The relatives of the murdered tell of vast stores of stockpiled weapons. Even the Special Representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ian Martin, seems dissatisfied.
What we are seeing is that there is one weapon for every ten soldiers, meaning that the other nine are unarmed, their weapons have been washed away by rivers, or blown to bits in fires. A lie of this magnitude warrants a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
What repercussions could it have for Nepal and for the world if these Maoists, who haven't even been properly disarmed, are allowed to enter the interim government? What do we say of the dignity of the seven-party alliance if they allow the Maoists to bully themselves into the government?
The Maoists need to return all land and property they have seized from individuals. Everyone needs to be able to vote under their own name without any coercion. The environment of fear needs to change, because no election held under such conditions has any significance whatsoever.
