The people had pinned a lot of hope on the Maoists, but they haven't lived up to that trust. Aside from a few token actions from the YCL, there isn't much. And instead of warning its affiliated organisation to desist from terrorising the people, the Maoists are actually helping spread terror. What's the point of having a peace process if they want to terrorise the people just as they did during the war? Why stay in government? How does it make any sense for a party that is sitting in government to allows its own cadre to ransack the district administration office and beat up the CDO? Is this the model of new Nepal that you want the world to emulate, Comrade Prachanda? This isn't about showing off your political arm-twisting capability but how effective you are in the marketplace of ideas. The Maoists are the third-largest party in government, but they didn't attain that through elections. If they want to know their political status, they must allow free and fair elections. But if it keeps on its present path, the Maoists may have to wash their hands of politics.
