“Nepal is heading towards failed state. The agreement imposed by international forces is virtually collapsed. In this scenario, there need to have new arrangements, However, eight years ago, China was not a major factor in Nepal. However, China is a major factor of Nepal,” Prakash Koirala, former minister, Nepali Congress leader and son of late prime minister B.P. Koirala.

Koirala said that monarchy will revive in Nepal in near future. In his interview with onlinekhabar, a news portal, Koirala said military predicted that there would be military rule in Nepal.

Answering the query, Koirala said Himani, former princes or Hridayendra, grandson of former king Gyanendra, will be put in throne. Nepal’s future political situation will also be decided from street agitation like in the past. “There is nothing to do with the public opinion in Nepal,” said Koirala. “Look, we don’t have only political parties but also have foreign elements. “Given the current political trends, what I can say that the street will be decisive where foreign elements also join.”

About the role of India in Nepal, Koirala said India looks at China to take major decision in Nepal. “If China can go Latin America and Africa, they will definite to show their presence in Nepal. China cannot ignore Nepal now. In 2006, India with support from western countries brought Maoist and main political parties to sign 12 point agreement. Only one aim of India was to remove monarchy. However, western countries forwarded the agenda of secularism and federalism,” said Koirala.

“So far as promulgation of new constitution is concerned on January 22, it is unlikely. Nepal is in the crisis whether it promulgate new constitution or not,” said Koirala. “There will be political disorder after January 22.”

Whatever Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, Indian bureaucrats cannot give up their role in Nepal. “They can still play decisive role. You can even see the change stand of Indian prime minister in his two visit,” said Koirala.
