    I am shocked ,amazed,feel degraded as a human being by the way President Ram Baran Yadav holds talks with other party leaders.Everything is done behind the closed doors,separately with each party leader.Are you Mr.Yadav taking notes on what are the interests of each party leader so that later you can please him personali and secure voice or discuss the best options on how to get their support?
    Mr.Yadav expresses concern over PLA integration and reabilitation!
    I think Mr.Yadav first of all you must go back to 7 point agreement and re-read it carefully and ask what does it mean.It is sickening to read the afterwards explanations as whatever was written should not be understood as such as Khanal and Dahal did not mean it,as they did not mean what it says.

    If that is the case,then re-write the 7 point agreement exactly with the words they mean.However,all the afterwards actions by these two individuals and their party cadres are the proof that they meant exactly what was in 7 point agreement.
    The military assistance from China,Dahal’s trip to Singapoor,the way Dahal and Khanal discusses very important questions on issues concerning the whole society behind the closed doors is the reason for concern.It is pure authoritarian way,calling in one by one in members of different parties ,which by the way supposed to represent the society,but do you ever ask us what we need ?
    The story began like this,once upon a time Mr.Yadav had an idea ,then he called upon his relatives,friends and friends of friends and established a party that supposedly has to represent me,but the only solutions they are getting is a better of lives for relatives and close friends.
    Mr.Yadav does not understand that the calculation he does 2/3 or through political consensus is no anyway close to what the society needs or wants.Therefore decarnation as an idea is brought forward as we can limit the influence of other parties and groups of people from outside the Kathmandu.We haven’t even come close to writing a constitution to a respectful standards of every human being wherever they are,in village ,east,west,women or men,children etc,but he wants to create a commision ,who would limit us already before even the constitution is written.So from now on everything will decide a small group of people from the commision who think they are representing us not even coming to us not even asking what we need.They as till now will decide,what we need,what is good enough and how much is good enough.Go out to villages,yes,each and every village in the country,start from there,that is where the reality lies Mr.Yadav.
