After his visit to Rolpa, Prachanda appeared very despondent in his meeting with the prime minister at Baluwatar on Sunday.
According to the sources, the Maoist chairman, who arrived in Baluwatar with Baburam Bhattarai, talked for a long time with Koirala. Prachanda complained that Madhab Kumar Nepal has turned his back on him. Quoting him a source said, "At first you said we could come together and I talked to my party accordingly. But in the end you and Madhab Kumar Nepal deceived me. I even proposed to go to the elections with the same election manifesto."
In reply the prime minister said that everything does not always happen according to one's own wishes. "My party has its own problems. I have not been able to solve these," he said.
The same evening, in his meeting with senior leaders of the NC, Koirala said, "I found Prachanda very dejected today." A senior NC leader said, "Even Baburam Bhattarai was silent." During the hour long meeting, both Prachanda and Baburam sipped their coke only twice.
