National Front of Democracy (NFD) lambasts the recent statement of the Bhutanese prime minister Jigme Y Thinley vis-à-vis to resuming dialogue with Nepal to repatriate exiled Bhutanese.
Calling it a ploy to walk away from repatriating its citizens languishing in the refugee camps in Nepal, NFD, a collision of Bhutanese political parties in exile, has strongly criticized the statement Thinley had made amidst the journalists in Kathmandu.
Issuing a press release today, NFD president, Balaram Poudyel has requested the international community not to be ‘convinced’ by the controversial statement of the Bhutanese prime minister.
‘On one hand, Bhutan agreed to comply with the recommendations made during the 13th session of the UN Human Rights Council  in Geneva, including repatriating the willing refugees, while on other hand it has begun to  give controversial statement on solving the refugee impasse as a part of its traditional diplomacy to deter the talks’, reads the press release.
During the 13th day of demise of the former Prime Minister Girija Prashad Koirala   last week, Nepalese Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal had suggested Thinly to repatriate the interested exiled Bhutanese saying that resettlement in the third country is not the complete solution. However, Thinley twisted his tongue and said that he would discuss it with the international community including Nepal.
According to the press release of the NFD, Prime Minister Thinley has shown commitment to hold bilateral talks with Nepal simply to avoid the issue becoming the agenda on the 13th SAARC summit scheduled to take place in Bhutan, and to avoid the international pressure.
NFD has also called it as ‘sheer shame’ on the part of Bhutanese government to show gratitude to the core countries accepting refugees for resettlement instead of showing commitments towards repatriating them. ‘This act of the Bhutanese prime minister has inflicted deep wound to the national sovereignty and made the mockery of democracy and human rights round the world’, reads the press release further.
Stressing that the Bhutanese people are always for the peace, NFD has suggested the Bhutanese monarch to trust its people and find the peaceful solution to the problem through national reconciliation.
