Kiran, CP Gajurels, Vipluv etc. perhaps were true to label Bhattarai a revisionist, pseudo-commie.
This picture was taken during Baburam Bhattarai’s New York visit last year for the annual UN General Assembly meeting and was later made public on his return home. This picture was made public with such alacrity and excitement from his private secretariat that as though Bhattarai had accomplished something great, as if he’d achieved a ‘remarkable feat’ by aligning with the Obamas and he wanted to show it off to his countrymen.
Commies hate America and its establishments. Actually a sort of war is in place against America and other capitalist bullies from the communist front since long. As a communist leader, Bhattarai shouldn’t have taken pride on picturing with the Obamas. Everyone knows, the world is getting more dangerous, insecure mostly because of America and the wars it started.
Well, as a visiting leader, he could meet the Obamas but it’s really not necessary to publish the photo of him standing next to a man who’s responsible for hundreds of thousands of death in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere with utmost priority and alacrity. It hurts us. It hurts the pride of every peace, justice loving Nepali.
This picture is an indication of Bhattarai’s false profession to communism. He tarnished his image himself further with this pathetic show. With Nepali national flag not present, this picture indicates his clear submission to imperialist American leader.
