FM Bhattarai comes down heavily on Judiciary and Army

Senior leader of the Unified CPN (Maoist) and Finance Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai has warned failure to democratise judiciary and the army could jeopardize the republic set up of Nepal.

Speaking at a programme organised by his party in Parvat Saturday, Bhattarai said many senior army officials still have a soft corner for monarchy. We tried to relieve unscrupulous royalist generals, but they got themselves reinstated by taking the judiciary in their hands, Annapurna Post quoted him as saying.

The judiciary is rolling back all our decisions, which shows there is politics involved even in Judiciary, Bhattarai added. There is no body above the people in democracy. Army and judiciary should be democratised so that people have control over them, he said.

So the people don't have State power.. soon it seems perhaps a military coup, PLA can't beat the NA without mass resurrection and if that then the reactionaries call on India.. only solution without bloodshed is the CA process resulting in constitution giving control over the army and the judges.. even if atheists we need pray for the CA to be successful.

I am praying but the question of State power will not go away and reason not faith is our answer.

History is very clear on this matter and smashing is not a word to be used lightly and Bhattarai and Prachanda know this very well.
