It is to the credit of Prime Minister Deuba that he managed to convince the King on one side and a few of the political parties on the other to join him to patch up a reasonably representative government with the UML (United Marxist League), RPP (Rashtriya Praja Tantra Party) and NSP (Nepal Sadbhavana Party)- Mandal factions..

It is not clear what G.P.Koirala is up to? His recent statements and his action give the impression that he is more keen to pull both Deuba and the King down rather than finding a lasting solution to the Maoist problem which has now assumed serious proportions.
