Postpone till eternity

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

Jun 17, 2017-

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 18. 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 18? 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!
