The condition of Nepal has been very critical because of the deeds of the political players their role in the so-called Jana-andolan. The foremost cause of the deteoreorative situation of the country is the annulment of the constitution of 1990 without any amendment. The irresponsible party leaders ended the constitution of 1990. The so-called Interim constitution is simply parties' agenda not a constitution. The 601 members of constituent assembly can't build any constitution because they all are only the puppets in the hands of foreign tutored and the dictated leaders. There is no history of making any constitution whatsoever by the puppets having no primary knowledge of the contents of the constiturion.
The peaceful country where Lord Buddha was born has become the venue of confrontations. Those, who are in power, are exploiting the country. India including other foreign elements is active to destroy the country's peace and prosperity. Envoys from powerful countries are present here. Their aim is to destroy the Nepalese identity and originality. Not only the immature party leaders but the foreign elements too are responsible for this present plight. Nepalese leaders can't maintain diplomacy because they themselves are puppets controlled by diplomats.
If the late King Mahendra had not taken the bold decision in 1961, the country would not have existed till now. It already would have become a Sikkim or Bhutan. King Mahendra's step supported the nationalism and stopped corruption. Now, the critics of King Mahendra are convinced seeing the character of the Party leaders and the naked intervention of the foreigners. Nepalese people fought for the better system but sadly opposite to the people's expectations, the leaders appeared as dacoits and looter. The double-agent Girija Prasad Koirala, who triggered Maoist revel to hold back Communism. But, after the assignments of 12 points in India in 2005, Girija and Maoist became political friends under the pressure of India.
S.D Muni ( Professor of J.N.U and the Policy maker of south block ) in his article 'Dealing with a new Nepal' The hindu Daily on 15th sep. 2008 has conceded that India had provided one billion rupees for running the agitation.' With that resources along with the guide-lines of south-block they could forge the Jana-Anandolan. This was the mysterious design for our country. It is likely to recur. The multiparty & republic is not the current issue in Nepal, the main problem is only how to save the country from corruptions & Indian intervention. In Nepal, nowadays, we have daylight robbery, killing and insecurity of the public life even having holding state power in the hands of those who led the agitation.
Now, the Maoist is in power. The political success will be measured on how it can move according to the national and international aspiration. For this, we request the Maoists to be committed to protect our sovereignty as well as the natural and cultural assets. The open border is the main cause for the disturbances and insecurity. So, there must be bilateral agreement between Nepal & India. Nepal and India are close geographically and culturally. Nepal has been facing threat from India from the very beginning. Nepal has not faced any threat from China since communism was established there. China is in favor of monarchy in Nepal. China knows that Nepal's sovereignty is linked with monarchy. Therefore, the Maoists should also accept this reality. The attempt to establish a republican state in Nepal is a Herculean task.
The Maoists should prepare plans to mobilize Nepalese manpower in the utilization of natural resources– land, water resources and forest; and to maintain the country's cultural vibrancy it should declare religious freedom and announce the continuation of Hindu and Buddhist kingdom by which Nepal is identified around the world. Indeed, the movement of Maoist was not for the republic in the beginning, the revolt was against the corruption, foreign intervention and the exploitation. It might be mentioned here that republic & secularism in Nepal are the interests of the foreigners to destroy the whole identity of Nepal. There should be a strong law to punish the corrupt and must nationalize their assets, properties and incomes, which would help in stopping corruption.
In the context of Nepal, the authorized guardian of the country is the King. We view that effort made both by the King and the people will only enhance the nation & democracy. But the leaders did not like to understand the reality and they declared republic in the pressure of foreigners. Now, the republic became the main problem of the country's stability. To safeguard the nationality & democracy, the King ought to be re-established, and the parliament should be strong. Equally, the political leaders must be patriot & be true to what they say. Nepal has become the playground of foreigners (especially Indians) the problem will only be resolved when the King and the people's leaders will be together in regime.
