Nepali Congress blames United Nations for all Nepal problems

'The fault lay on the part of the United Nations for having imbalanced and partisan relations with Nepali political parties in the past, as a result of which Nepal is undergoing tumultuous times'.

Direct attack on the UN body. Courage must be admired.

The Nepali Congress President Sushil Koirala made this frontal attack upon meeting the visiting Director of the Department of Political Affairs, Asia Pacific Bureau of the United Nations, Samuel Tamrat. Big blow indeed!

But why this Tamrat comes to Nepal every now and then? The fact is that as and when he comes to Nepal, the political tussle here takes a fierce dimension. The NC anxiety has thus logic, claim matured political observers.

The UN body in Nepal including the UN Peace Mission, UNMIN was labelled as a ‘Maoists Tail’ by the then Defence Minister Bidya Devi Bhandari. Except the Unified Maoists Party, all other parties were against UNMIN’s Nepal stay.

Sushil Koirala putting the entire blame on to the United Nation is quoted as saying by one of the leading national dailies, “Nepali people are suffering because of the UN failure in maintaining a fair and balanced relation with all the parties in the past.”

“We scrutinized UN’s role in Nepal and analyzed prevailing political situation here, we also thanked the UN for its continued support”, said Ram Saran Mahat who was also present at Sushil-Tamrat meeting.

Let this thanks offered by Dr. Mahat to the UN official be the last one, opine analysts. The general people get annoyed and irritated whenever they listen to the news that Tamrat is visiting Nepal.

Has Tamrat a frightening face? He must have or else why the Nepali people get scared as and when he drops in Nepal?

The UN body’s image is sinking in Nepal for sure.

The meeting took place at President Sushil Koirala’s personal residence in Maharajgunj, Kathmandu.

Tamrat will meet leaders of other political parties on Monday it is reported. He has already met with Prime Minister Jhal Nath Khanal.

Tamrat must understand now as to how his visit is being taken by common Nepali men including the leaders.
