Lame duck



Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal along with the biggest team ever in the history, is visiting India today. People are not told why so much state money is being spent: whether India wants to get things done or Nepal wants Indian grace to sustain the government.

Nepal was defeated in two constituencies, and yet is now the prime minister of Nepal. He has no future in politics and is therefore trying to get back his lost position in the party by spending state money. He organises banquets in his residence everyday.

These are ethical questions. It is up to an individual to decide what is right and wrong.
A person in power should be conscious about this. How ethical is it for a person who lost elections to be prime minister? Such a weak person should not sign any treaty or agreement that will have a lasting impact, even if he does it will have no legal or moral ground. According to precedent one third of parliamentary consent is required to sign a treaty with another country. The Maoist members make up 40 per cent of parliament and they have already warned Nepal not to sign any treaty during the visit, which automatically makes any agreement signed by Nepal unconstitutional.
