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: Why All this fuss over Local Elections? : Update No. 294

Note No. 713          Dated 20-March-2014

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

One notices that the present government of Nepal led by the Nepali Congress-UML combine gets into unnecessary and trivial controversies that would only further delay its primary task of getting a new constitution in time. In this process, the faith the people had put in them in electing them in overwhelming numbers in the last interim assembly elections also gets eroded.
