Two telephone conversations allegedly between Maoist leader Krishna Bahadur Mahara and an unnamed Chinese person that have surfaced ahead of the sixth round of voting on Sunday seem to suggest such a possibility.Transcript of some parts of the phone conversations
Â· Unknown caller: What's causing the problem to (get) enough seats?
Â· Mahara: We have already 10-15 seats but maybe (we need) around 50.
Â· Unknown caller: You need additional 50? And Mr. Mahara what kind of help could help you to get the 50 seats?
Â· Mahara: This is most difficult task, because the south (India) centre (New Delhi)—they (some lawmakers) are guided, control (by) them. So the first thing, it is necessary to neutralize the south. Second thing, some money (is) also needed.
Â· Mahara: I have discussed with my chairman and he says because the election is now only four days left—from outside minimum 50 members we need. For 50 members, if we cost them then the minimum (needed is) 10 million Nepali rupees per person.
Â· Unknown caller: 10 million per person that is 100 lakh per person?
Â· Mahara: Yes 100 lakh Nepali rupees per person
Â· Unknown caller: .....If you will be able to pay a visit to Hong Kong?
Â· Mahara: Yes, it is okay. But Hong Kong is..there are so many Nepalis (there)
Â· Unknown caller: We are open at any time, but for you when will be good time?
Â· Mahara: But it is only four days because we need before four days. But..I will try to tomorrow or today?
Â· Unknown caller: How long you need to stay in Hong Kong? One night?
Â· Mahara: Yes, one night is sufficient.
