Nepal: Political Earth Quake- Nepali Congress Shocked and Surprised- Update No. 352

Note No. 787                                      Dated 10-Oct-2017

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

On 3rd October, the three leftist parties, the UML, Maoist Centre led by Dahal and the Naya Shakti led by Baburam Bhattarai agreed to contest the next two tier elections under the same political banner and eventually form a single communist party.  This happened despite the fact that Dahal’s Maoist Centre continued to be a coalition partner of the present government led by the Nepali Congress.

Nepal: Madhesi Groups should not start a new agitation on the Constitutional Amendment- Update No. 346

Note No. 781                                      Dated 17-Apr-2017

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

On 12th of April, Dahal’s government formally withdrew its previous amendment bill and registered a fresh one.  This new bill does meet some of the demands made by the Madhesi groups, though not all.  As expected, the UML, more out of its cussedness has opposed the bill on the ground that the party was not consulted before hand!

Nepal: “Action Paralysis” Continues: Update No. 340

Note No.  774                                  Dated 23-Nov-2016

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

Everything appears to be in a “stand still” position in Nepal.  No consensus could be reached on the promised constitutional amendments and the Terain-Janajathi outfit- the Federal Alliance has given an ultimatum to renew the stir in fifteen days if nothing is done.  Nothing is likely to be done either and we can expect more ultimatums to follow.
