Chang­ing mood of the peo­ple

People's Review - - COMMENTARY -

The govern­ment of the Nepal Com­mu­nist Party se­cur­ing twothirds ma­jor­ity has be­come non­func­tional, which has made the cit­i­zens dis­ap­pointed and there is com­plete ab­sence of the sil­ver line for the pos­i­tive change in the na­tion in the near fu­ture. The na­tion needs fur­ther po­lit­i­cal change which should be truly di­rected to the wel­fare of the cit­i­zens and pre­vent it from the pos­si­ble divi­sion into many pieces. Un­luck­ily, some of the po­lit­i­cal lead­ers and some so-called prom­i­nent personalities are busy to de­fine the voices against the in­tegrity of the na­tion as hu­man rights. Would any­one have the courage to raise such voices against the na­tion dur­ing the pe­riod of ac­tive monar­chy? Only if there is the ex­is­tence of the na­tion the po­lit­i­cal par­ties will be able to play their po­lit­i­cal games. But the short­sighted lead­ers, those who gain ben­e­fits from the for­eign power cen­ters are nei­ther show­ing will­ing­ness to avoid the un­nec­es­sary in­ter­ven­tions of those cen­ters nor tak­ing nec­es­sary strict ac­tions on the voices against the in­tegrity of the na­tion. They are obey­ing the direc­tions of those for­eign power cen­ters at the cost of the na­tion. Then what should be done? Now, the con­scious cit­i­zens are se­ri­ously ques­tion­ing on what the na­tion got by abol­ish­ing the in­sti­tu­tion of monar­chy! They be­lieve, the end of this in­sti­tu­tion was a se­ri­ous mis­take. Since all the so-called big po­lit­i­cal par­ties, in­clud­ing the rul­ing one, are los­ing their pop­u­lar­ity this seems more true. On the other hand, the his­tory and ge­og­ra­phy of the coun­try are in dan­ger in the ab­sence of the monar­chy. The in­sti­tu­tion of monar­chy had played the role to save the na­tion from be­ing di­vided into var­i­ous pieces. If one vis­its some so­cial sites, one can find peo­ple con­demn­ing those po­lit­i­cal lead­ers who are us­ing bad words against the mon­archs. Nepal is cul­tur­ally, his­tor­i­cally and po­lit­i­cally knot­ted to this in­sti­tu­tion. Since the pop­u­lar­ity of the monar­chy is in­creas­ing along with the un­pop­u­lar­ity of po­lit­i­cal par­ties day by day, most of the cit­i­zens of the coun­try seem to be in fa­vor of the restora­tion of il­le­gally as well as un­demo­crat­i­cally abol­ished in­sti­tu­tion of monar­chy, al­though, it may not be easy to re­store it. But its restora­tion is not im­pos­si­ble ei­ther. The world his­tory shows that in many coun­tries in­clud­ing the United King­dom, the al­ready abol­ished monar­chy was re­sorted af­ter a cer­tain du­ra­tion of time. For­mer king, Gya­nen­dra, some­times re­minds the po­lit­i­cal lead­ers about the agree­ment be­tween him and them, un­der which, he had agreed for restora­tion of the dis­solved par­lia­ment. It is dis­hon­esty to ne­glect any type of such agree­ments by ei­ther side. The Nepalese cit­i­zens, ig­no­rant on such an agree­ment, have the right to know about it. Ev­ery­one needs to make ef­forts from his or her side for the bet­ter­ment of the na­tion. For the best so­lu­tion of this prob­lem the po­lit­i­cal lead­ers should re­al­ize their mis­takes and should play the role for the restora­tion of demo­cratic mul­ti­party sys­tem with monar­chial sys­tem with needed po­lit­i­cal power, author­ity and re­spon­si­bil­ity. The po­lit­i­cal sys­tem of any coun­try needs to match with the need of the coun­try. In the case of Nepal, in­tegrity and sovereignty will not re­main for a long pe­riod of time if noth­ing is done right away. Even the top lead­ers of the rul­ing party have ex­plained the gloomy pic­ture of the coun­try in the par­lia­ment.
