Peo­ple's Re­view in 28 years

People's Review - - FRONT PAGE - By Pushpa Raj Prad­han

It is our im­mense plea­sure to in­form our valued read­ers that from this week Peo­ple's Re­view has com­pleted 27 years of its pub­li­ca­tion and has started its jour­ney in 28 years. There is a large crowd of me­dia in the coun­try, nev­er­the­less, we have been able to show our strong pres­ence among the read­ers along with our own iden­tity. We had launched this Weekly when we saw foreign in­ter­ven­tion in all sec­tor; our po­lit­i­cal lead­ers, so-called in­tel­lec­tu­als, aca­demi­cians, bu­reau­cracy, among oth­ers were found serv­ing foreign pow­ers for their pity in­ter­ests. Our strug­gle against those el­e­ments who in­tended to weaken na­tional sovereignty, na­tional unity and na­tional in­di­vis­i­bil­ity is con­tinue and we bag the sup­port of a large force of pa­tri­otic peo­ple. The very pa­tri­otic peo­ple are the strength of this Weekly. For­eign­ers, spe­cially, western­ers have im­posed the present con­sti­tu­tion. It doesn't suit us and we can never achieve pros­per­ity and sta­bil­ity through this con­sti­tu­tion, rather, it will de­stroy our iden­tity, cul­ture, tra­di­tion and re­li­gion. Af­ter the re­moval of Hindu state, we have wit­nessed cul­tural and re­li­gious in­ter­fer­ence; af­ter adop­tion of fed­eral struc­ture, we have wit­nessed com­mu­nal dis­putes and, more se­ri­ously, af­ter re­moval of in­sti­tu­tion of monar­chy, we have wit­nessed many monar­chs who be­lieve them­selves above the law. A democ­racy can­not func­tion with­out rule of law. To­day, even part­ners of the 2006 April up­ris­ing have started to blame the present gov­ern­ment en­joy­ing two-thirds ma­jor­ity as au­to­cratic. To keep the moth­er­land in­tact, in­di­vis­i­ble and pros­per­ous, with­out any de­lay, we should re­move republicanism, sec­u­lar­ism and fed­er­al­ism. This is not our sin­gle voice but we rep­re­sent the voice of above 90 per­cent of the Nepalese pop­u­la­tion, whose voice has been sup­pressed by the present day rulers. In past one year, we have been able to bring out 50 is­sues out of 52 weeks. With the en­cour­age­ment from our read­ers at home and abroad, we have started On­line News Mon­i­tor­ing Ser­vice up­dat­ing news in a daily ba­sis on our Web­site www.peo­plesre­view.com.np. This has sig­nif­i­cantly in­creased our Web­site vis­i­tors at home and abroad. Fi­nally, we wish to ex­tend hearty thanks to our valued read­ers for their en­cour­age­ment, sym­pa­thy and sup­port to us. Fur­ther­more, we wish to ex­tend our thanks to our valued ad­ver­tis­ers and seek their con­tin­u­ous sup­port in the days to come as well. We praise the en­tire team as­so­ci­ated with us for their hard work to give a new height to the Weekly.
