[b]New Delhi, 26 April ([/b] India wants the Maoists to oin the political mainstream and participate in the Parliamentary elections after giving up violence. India sees a ceremonial role for the King since it holds the view that a constitutional monarchy would add to political stability in Nepal.

According to the National Security Advisor M K Narayanan, there was a great deal of confabulation before the King's decision. "There was a lot of talking by Indian side and lot of others. I think all necessary steps have been taken," he said.

Political parties in Nepal have more or less indicated that they will accept it (King's decision) and "we hope to have interim government in a couple of days", he said.

New Delhi has won warm appreciation from global think tanks for the 'roll back of palace coup' in Nepal, notwithstanding the criticism of the likes of Natwar Singh, a former prime minister.
