The Maoists have always put Nepal on a dangerous roller coaster ride towards a crash. Every time they have been active or been at the political helm, the country has suffered miserably and lost part of its soul. The Maoist Prime Minister Pusha Kamal Dahal has taken the country to a new depth, as never before, by eroding its standing in the world and its sovereingty and independence. Although the Maoist leaders alone are not the only culprit in Nepal 's growing humiliation, they are at its pivot in the post-1990 period.

Here is the record. The Maoists, under the banner of the Joint People 's Front, caused frequent shutdown of markets and transportation from 1991-94. In the 1996-2006 period, they killed or helped kill more than 15,000 people,

It should be changed as the emerging situation and challenges require. But a foreign country has no business to dictate our country 's constitution.

Nepali leaders ' greed for power and Nepal 's declining standing in the international community make it easy for India to prevail in Nepal.

Politicians should win the election and obtain and retain power. But in Nepal, they jockey for power on dirty tricks, including the use of Indian influence. Dahal 's is a case in point.

Dahal 's party did not win the last election and he did not obtain power on his party 's parliamentary strenght and moral claim. His party was third in the house. But he wanted undeserved power anyway.

To acquire it, Dahal kowtowed to India and the Nepali Congress, who supported him to spite the CPN (UML) and its leader and former Prime Minister KP Oli, who had defied New Delhi. Dahal is trying to retain power by selling the country 's soul and his own honor.

Finally, Nepal has become the sickman of South Asia, both politically and economically. Since 1994, the government has changed 23 times. Political instability has eaten Nepal 's entrails. It has encourged a run-away corruption among political leaders and
