From The Kathmandu Post (25 October, 2013)
Soon, the non-resident Nepali will inject great energy to a country that has long been in the doldrums
On Tuesday, the last day of the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) jamboree, UCPN (Maoist) Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal was asked challenging questions of the kind that he does not get from the intimidated cognoscenti of Kathmandu. One asked Dahal for “an accounting of the 17,000 dead” that took the Maoists to power. Another sought hisaab for the billions that went from the exchequer for ‘ex-combatant integration’.
