My Republica.com has KC Gautam (who moderated the meeting when Prachanda was chief guest in US)'s article. A big blow to Maoists from personality like KC Gautam. Wow! Also read readers' comment. He had given a big blow to so called civic society leaders for them being useful idiots on behalf of Maoists.
Dr. Gautam writers, "In this effort, the Maoist cause has been greatly aided by a group of supposedly “neutral” civil society leaders – some of whom had played an important role at the time of the 2006 People’s Movement, but who seem to have aligned themselves, perhaps even inadvertently, with the Maoists since then. The one-sided vitriol coming from some members of this civil society leadership is breath-taking. Reminiscent of the hired propagandists in the Stalin-era communist regimes, a well-known and thoroughly partisan leftist writer known for his poison-pen activism characterizes Ram Baran Yadav as “an evil president who is tempted by greed for power, and is desperately seeking a crown and a throne”. No one with an iota of objectivity would characterize Yadav, a humble son of a farmer and a life-long democrat, in such hyperbolic terms"
Gautam lai jiudai chhodainan Maoists le aba. Tyo chai satya ho. He should leave Nepal at least for some time. The Maoists will certainly run some FATWA.
