Parakrama Shah understood that then, Nepal wanted Pradyumna the King after hearing the letter of Nepal Vakil or ambassador . Parakrama shouted on Vakil and angrily said, “Are you warning me ? If you head on with me , your kingdom would not be in Kurmachal too. If you have guts then you attack on my army. I did not make captive the king but ministers ousted we both.”
The Nepal ambassador said that in that condition, Pradyumna Shah would be the King but Parakrama would control the council of ministers. Ambassadors reached to the King wit Parakrama. Nepal ambassador made agreement between the two. The King said to Parakrama that if he obeyed him, Parakrama would be the controller of council of ministers. There was Dharma Pratigya from both the sides.
Ambassador came to Shrinagar from Ranihat and informed the details of accord between Pradyumna Shah and Parakrama Shah. Ministers told to the ambassador that they would not follow till Parakrama sign on the agreement (Dharma Patra). The ambassador returned to Ranihat and got agreement letter from Parakrama Shah and showed to the ministers. Then, ministers and ambassador reached to Parakrama Shah
The ministers advised the prince Sudarshan Shah for staying in Shrinagar with army.
The ministers reached Ranihat where Pradyumna Shah and Parakrama were together. Ministers bowed before the King. The minsters paid tribute to the king for five Asharfi and 4 to Parakrama. Pradyumna Shah asked Parakrama for the staying place for the ministers. First, Parakrama told to stay in the mango garden at Ranihat. However, immediately Parakrama changed his mind and asked the ministers for going back to Shrinagar.
Next day, Parakrama and Pradyumna reached to Shrinagar. Both the parties agreed for following the accord.
The army supporters of King retuned back from Shrinagar. After some time, the supporters of Parakrama stated surrounding by force the houses of supporters of the King.Then, the supporters of the King became worried about the activities of Parakrama.
Dr. Dabral illustrated the above descriptions based on Ganika Natak by Maularam. Maulaam was the court artist and mint man too. Maularam was opponent of Parakrama too. All the above description is one sided and create sympathy for Pradyumna Shah and create Parakrama as villain. No historian has the description of side of Parakrama Shah. The above description clearly showed that Pradyumna was a weak administrator.
