Message to Prabhakaran: Learn From Prachanda

Prabhakaran(L) -- Prachanda(R)

By Chitrangi

The future of the Maoist leader and the future of Nepal has solved in a peaceful manner. We all must congratulate this rebel leader and former teacher. Prachanda remembers the LTTE leadership. Both have vast difference and can’t compare them. But we have to learn from Nepalese. If we will not learn, the lives of the innocent civilians not Prabakaran not Mahinda (our president) in danger and facing unbearable difficulties for years. Every one knew in history any party to the war not won but achieved destruction.

The BBC has reported it is only two years since Prachanda emerged from more than two decades underground as a militant communist leader

I am very happy and very emotional,” he said as he left the constituent assembly after the vote, reported AFP news agency.

What the Maoists called their “people’s war” had left 13,000 people dead, tens of thousands displaced and much of the country’s infrastructure destroyed.

The BBC’s Charles Haviland in Kathmandu says that now the former guerrilla will be the most powerful politician in the Himalayan country, after 464 lawmakers gave him their vote and only 113 rejected him.

The Maoists’ deputy leader, Baburam Bhattarai, said: “Today is a day of pride and it will be written with golden letters in the history of the nation.” He predicted earlier that Prachanda would be a leader “for a new era”, comparable to Lenin or Napoleon.

Friday’s ballot ends months of political deadlock that had followed the sacking of the unpopular King Gyanendra and the abolition of the 240-year-old monarchy. Our correspondent says that Prachanda’s elevation had long seemed inevitable after his party scored its convincing win in April.

The Maoists’ Congress Party rivals accused them before the vote of plotting to set up a totalitarian communist regime, a suggestion they strongly denied.

A former agricultural science teacher-turned-revolutionary, Prachanda was originally named Pushpa Kamal Dahal, but he still uses his guerrilla nom de guerre.

Members of Nepal’s parliament have overwhelmingly elected the Maoist leader Prachanda as the country’s new prime minister. The 53-year-old won 80% of votes to defeat his only rival, the Congress Party candidate, Sher Bahadur Deuba. Maoists won a surprise victory in April elections, and two other key parties supported Prachanda in the vote.

We as Sri Lankans must congratulate Prachanda and learn from Nepalee people and put them into practice.
