Postpone till Eternity





King Deuba has been our Prime Monster for more than a week and he has not moved to Baluwatar yet.  This man seems to be totally dependent on his astrologers when it comes to making any decisions in his life. Maybe we should just ask one of his guru to shift to Baluwatar and run this country. It could save us a whole lot of our taxpayers money. 

I hope Deuba has not been seeking advice from the same astrologers from the time when he was fired by Gyanu Uncle for being incompetent and not holding elections then. But Deuba has nothing to worry about because nobody is going to fire him this time. 

Deuba really believes in Vastu stuff and some of us do as well but maybe he forgets that he is once again our Prime Monster and his decisions will make or break this country.

Our politicians seem to have no idea about the costs related to holding elections. Instead of carrying out the local elections at the same time, our Emperor decided that it would be best if we did it in two phases. Well, that was fine but now King Deuba does not know how to move forward.

Our incompetent government tells us that the local elections in three provinces will be held on June 28 while we will have local elections in Province 2 on September 18th. Once again, Deuba's astrologers seem to have been busy doing their math and coming up with the auspicious dates instead of asking experts, security chiefs and civil servants for advice on how to wrap up our local elections.

The Election Commission (EC) wallahs have already told our Prime Monster that it is not good idea to postpone local elections again. But our politicians only have ears for contractors, con artists and cadres while civil servants only have their say if they are able to provide kickbacks to our netas. 

We all know that the second phase of the local elections will face problems and our Home Ministry has to be fully prepared to make sure that they are able to contain any volatile situations. 

And we will probably witness vandalism and tearing up the ballot papers in many of the places during the second phase. Yes, thank you comrades for inspiring losers to tear up the ballot papers! 

And our Madhesi netas are not happy with the government's decision to postpone the local elections in Province 2 either. They just want the government to amend the constitution and will not participate in the local elections until that happens. 

So, what will Deuba do on September 18th? He will have no choice but to postpone again and again till he once again proves himself to be an incompetent  moron!

So how do we make those opposing the local elections in Province 2 happy? Well, Deuba is a player and he knows the system very well. He should now work hard to make sure he gets all the funds from our byaparis, foreign embassies and other con artists. Yes, buy our opposing players  out! After all, Deuba is good at it. Offer them not boras but truck-load full of cash or buy them apartments in the West for their kids! 

Our ruling coalition tells us that they have no choice but to defer the poll so that they can bring the opposing parties on board and help end the Madhes crisis. We all know that most of the Madhesi netas who are opposed to the local polls are the ones who could not win during the CA elections last time around. 

And they know very well that they are not likely to win this time either but they too have no choice but to act like they are fighting for the rights of the Madhesi people just to save face. 

The reality is these chors have done nothing for Madhes when they were in power except misuse their authority, earn ill-gotten wealth and slap a few civil servants around for not providing them government vehicles when visiting their districts. Well, let us not blame only our Madhesi parties? Our other chors are the same and who really cares about the people anyway?

The Rastriya Janata Party tells us that they will do everything possible to obstruct the elections in the three provinces if the constitution is not amended. 

Well, we have yet to thank them for the blockade last year. We should also thank our government for not filing cases against those involved in murdering our police personnel in Tikapur. Yes, it seems that only lives of our politicians and their cadres matter in this land of ours and for the rest of us, we do not even exist at all!

King Deuba has promised us that he will be the man to wrap up the elections natak. Now, it seems that this buffoon can't even hold the second phase of the local elections on time and how can we be certain that his government will be able to conduct the provincial and parliamentary elections on time?  

Deuba will make a bundle this time again. He really doesn't care about elections at all. He is not worried about his legacy and how history will judge him. Our politicians' motto must be 'loot while you can' because you never know when you will get the chance again to sit on the Kurchi.  

Maybe, we should just request Deuba's astrologers to forget about the stars and the moons. Just tell the Prime Monster to do the right thing for once so that we can forgive him for all his screw-ups in the past two decades that has brought this country to  where it is today.  Deuba, be a giver not a taker! Deuba, be a brave lion not a leech! May Arzoo Didi help us all!

Sheroo Returns!





Our country's most competent and honorable person, Sher Bahadur Deuba is back in the game. And for those who thought 'New Nepal' would bring great changes in this country can all shake their heads in disbelief and wonder why we are still governed by the same bunch of corrupt clowns since the 1990s ? 

Well, we did manage to see what our Emperor and Dr Saheb were capable of but they too couldn't do much. Well, Dr Saheb did manage to widen the roads here and there and our Emperor did his best to fire the Army Chief then, failed and then came back and tried to get the Chief Justice impeached and failed again. Well, he did manage to hold the first phase of the local elections and we should at least congratulate him for that. 

It seems that this man from Dadeldhura is one lucky politician. He can get away with anything and gets to sit on the top kurchi every now and then. Don't be surprised if he once gain becomes our Prime Monster in 2020. After all, he has been our PM in every decade since the 90s. 

When he was our Home Minister more than two and half decades ago, he interfered with the service provision and helped Motilal Bohra to become our IGP. 

Then he reduced the service provision from 32 to 30 years and now Nepal Police is having problems as it seems that SSPs will get to the top seat in a year or two without much experience as DIGs and AIGs.  It seems that nepotism and boras of cash helps our civil servants to reach the top while merit and hard work will get you nowhere.

And recently, Deuba was the man who once again interfered in the promotion of IGP by trying his best to make his man from the Far-West our police chief. Well, that didn't happen and then he asked our Emperor to help him impeach the Chief Justice. Well, that didn't happen as well but it clearly shows that Deuba will do anything to destroy our public institutions for his own self-interest and it is more than likely that he will not stop now. 

Our incompetent government has yet to fill the vacant AIG positions even after Prakash Aryal became our IGP a while ago. Our politicians believe in sharing is caring but only when it comes to power and positions in our government agencies. If you have a few Karods then you can become our CA member or be an ambassador or even head our government agencies. 

No wonder, our  Chudamani Sharma got to stay at the Inland Revenue Department for four years. It didn't make any difference to him who was in power. He had the ability to share the loot and made our Finance Ministers and other politicians rich while he too is reported to be worth billions of Rupees as well. 

And it seems that whenever our high-profile folks get arrested, they fall ill and get to stay in hospitals. Let's hope someday we will have a civil servant who when caught by the CIAA will be ready to spill the beans and provide evidence of giving kickbacks to our politicians. 

Deuba can make deals with anybody to make some dough and share power. The whole country was surprised when he joined hands with our Emperor so that our Renu Didi would be our mayor in Bharatpur. But let's see what happens in Chitwan. Boras of cash will change hands and hopefully Deuba and our Emperor can once again prove us all right that you need lots of bank notes to win votes in this country.

Now,  Deuba is our 40th Prime Monster and gets to live in Baluwatar for the fourth time. And let us all hope that Deuba will do his best to make sure that our lawmakers are well-fed, well-dressed and please offer them tax-free luxury vehicles before we are done with our Constipated Assembly nataks as well!

Deuba is a lucky man. For those who believe that you need to be a great communicator to be a politician, Deuba has proven them wrong. You can mumble your way to the top and keep on reaching the summit numerous times not by winning the hearts and the minds of the people but winning the votes from your fellow lawmakers in the House.  

Nobody really understands what Deuba says but he is a great manipulator and is known to help anyone who will help him to stay in power. The only folks who are happy that he is now our Prime Monster are his brother-in-law, who will probably make millions and even billions from commissions from deals here and there and his near and dear ones who will also get to have some fun while he works hard to make sure that the government find ways to waste our taxpayers money.

Nothing has changed since the 1990s. It seems that in the past three decades, only politicians have gotten richer while the rest of us have been forced to leave the country so that we can make a few Dinars more. 

Our civil servants, contractors and con artists have also helped the politicians to enjoy the loot while the common folks have yet to enjoy the resources and opportunities we thought we would receive in this great republic of Nepal! Long Live King Deuba!
