Joined at the neck



Just as BP (Koirala) said, the constitutional monarch and the parties who carry out politics on behalf of the people are joined at the neck. Even Maoist leader Prachanda seems to realise this. But even though he likes to say that the democratic gains of the 1990 Peoples' Movement must be safeguarded, Prachanda's party has been trying to divide the king and people and take advantage of that. The Maoist movement has used the gun and strategy to target precisely the two main achievements of 1990: constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy. They got rid of Girija Koirala, he quit. Now, in a roundabout way, they are supporting Deuba's reinstatement to isolate the king. The supporters of constitutional monarchy and parliamentary system must understand this threat. This is why the political parties must carefully evaluate their future moves. It is the responsibility of the parliamentary forces to defeat the Maoist strategy, and try to get the rebels to support the achievements of 1990 and bring them into the political mainstream. This cannot be achieved if the king and the political forces pull in different directions.
