Nepal is Surely Heading for a Political Deadlock

It seems that the political leaders in Nepal are not fan of political stability in the country. Most probably, they have become bored that there has been peaceful condition for the last 3 and half years. So, perhaps they need some entertainment and the best entertainment for them it so see the sufferings of ordinary people. Now, what has happened is that the Maoists are very angry over the reinstatement of the army chief, General Rookmangud Kawatal. The Maoists sacked him in May. The Preside of the country reversed the decision and the Maoists left power and came into the opposition.

Reuters reported:
The Maoist-led government fired the army chief, General Rookmangud Kawatal, in May saying he had refused to take orders. But the move was reversed by the president, prompting the Maoists to quit the government and plunging the country into crisis.
Maoist activists danced on the roads, or sat in front of vehicles, in a protest that may damage the tourism-dependent economy and has raised fears about Nepal's fragile peace.

Now, the leaders in the government should really sit with the Maoists to find a peaceful resolution to the problem. Otherwise, Nepal will surely go for another round of political deadlock, instability and who knows may be for another civil war. At the end of the day, it is the common people who will suffer.
