By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 25 May: Chairman Prachanda said Sunday CPN (Maoist) won’t accept Girija Prasad Koirala as a ceremonial president and said he will be prime minister and act as head of state.
“The present arrangement is the interim constitution should continue. Our clear policy is there should be an executive prime minister. Prime minister should have the role of head of state as well to implement a republic,” Prachanda told Deshantar.
‘Until a news constitution is drafted, prime minister should play the role of acting president,” he added.
Rival parties are demanding a position of ceremonial president for Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala who asked Prachanda Saturday to assembly a government as the largest party in the CA..
Rival parties said they will transfer power to Maoists only after an amendment in the constitution for power-sharing.
Prachanda offered the position of ‘patron’ of an ‘alliance’ of parties.
As a power struggle continues, Indian Ambassador Rakesh Sood ,like a colonial, ordered from Pokhara Saturday the style of government Nepal should have and who should lead it.
He said Maoists should lead such a government.
He was acting like the British did when they colonized India.
British could never colonize Nepal even as they overran India.
“All parties should have one objective—write the constitution,” Sood told a meeting in Pokhara.
He was speaking like a ‘brown sahib’ and telling Nepalis how to form then next government.
He said Maoists should lead a new government of national unity—an Indian mantra first enunciated by Shyam Saran.
