Nepal is standing on the verge of dismemberment in the last seven years.When the relationship between the king and the people have been detached one can easily imagine, Nepal can’t remain safe and unified if monarchy is actually abolished from the country. In a country with such geographical and ethnic diversities Nepal will fall into a severely dangerous situation because of the tug of war for power and money. This can be avoided if there is monarchy because monarchy is always impartial politically and of the political parties. Nepal has been always showing goodwill towards India. Cordial people to people level relations between Nepal and India has existed since ancient times. We have to keep friendly relations with India due to our similar cultural and religious traditions. But, since 2005, the cordial situation is humiliating day by day between Nepal & India. The permanent institution- ‘Monarchy’ can put unites the cordial relation between Nepal, India and China. In between the two big neighbors-China & India, the monarchy had been playing a balanced role. Nepalese people need to reinstate the amiable Hindu monarchy.
The permanent institution- ‘Nepalese monarchy’ can put unite the national instigation as it remained since ancient time. Monarchy is still a popular institution. Nepalese monarchy is the most convincing identity of Nepal’s independence and its sovereignty. According to the >news online< 6 Aug.2012, there had organized a secret Seminar in Lucknow’s headquarter Indian Army. In that seminar there were Army General including former General, ambassador of India in Nepal Jayanta Prasad and the anti-Nepal Prof. SD Muni and some former ambassadors except the nonsense Syamsaran the former Nepalese ambassador and former Secretor of Indian Govt. The meeting was focused about the cause of instability of Nepal. They participants were anxious about the cause of increasing anti-India feeling in Nepal. The Army Generals felt that the Nepalese instability directly can thread the Indian security. The republic is totally responsible for all problems. So the seminar stretched and asserted that the monarchy is as a balancing force between Nepal and India.
Secularism and republic had declared forcefully from Indian side. When republic declared in Nepal, the security point of India became week. And then they suggested reinstating the Nepalese Monarchy. Nepalese monarchy has been playing a balanced role in between the two big neighbors China & India. It is not the concerning subject for Indian Army about the internal affairs of Nepal, although, the realization from Indian Army can be accepted for the sake of Nepalese sovereignty.
In fact, with the increasing India’s what we may call a ‘naked intervention’ China has made its intention clear by emphasizing on its presence in Nepal. China is convinced that its security is protected if Nepal retains the royal institution. Foreign powers are investing their full energy to fulfill their selfish interests in Nepal. The republic setup is not in the interest of this country, instead it is fatal. The republic setup, secularism, federalism is unconstitutional and illegal and imposed without In this way Nepalese around the world are calling for re-establishment of the royal institution for existence of our identity and dignity. So we will honorably fight against such anti national injustice. All the organs of the state will unite, and in accordance with the 1990 Constitution and in presence of the King, we will strengthen this Hindu Kingdom. It is the duty of all Nepalese, whether in political parties or outside, and even the nationalists in the Maoists’ party to save this nation.
It is true that there are many countries which do not have monarchy still they could remain independent and prosperous. But in a diverse country like Nepal, monarchy is the only basis of national unity and Nepal cannot be compared with other countries. Indian conspirators are taking some deviant leaders of the political parties on their shoulders with the sole aim that it will be easy for them to control Nepal if monarchy can be displaced. The U-Moist and some parties take monarchy as the root cause of Nepal’s all woes. But, this is not correct. Nepalese king has ever acted or walked on the path which is against Nepal’s national interest. Nepal could remain an independent and sovereign country only because of monarchy. The monarchy was pivotal in integrating Nepal, establishing democratic and just society at par with the modern world. But why are the political parties so averse and negative towards monarchy?
Why would there be a need of a King if Nepal can survive without it? But Nepal should not be compared to other nations. Monarch is Nepal’s alternate power. Nepal does not demand an autocratic royal institution but a pro-people institution. The institution of monarchy is such a force that fights off imperialist force to create a greater Nepal. The King of Nepal never sold the nation, pleaded before foreigners nor killed the people and will never do so. I wouldn’t have said so if I was a citizen of Japan or any other nation, I would have said that the nation will survive without the monarchy, but I am in Nepal. The geographical and class reality of Nepal is such, that the absence of monarchy would mean there will be no Nepal. The senior leader of B.J.P Lalkrishna Advani also had said: ‘The framework for constitutional monarchy in Nepal should be consolidated because monarchy is the symbol of Nepal’s identity and sovereignty. Nepal should have an active and dynamic multi-party democracy’.
The Constituent Assembly failed to promulgate the constitution within the stipulated time span of two years. Its term was repeatedly extended and the work of drafting the new constitution could still not be completed in four years time, climaxing with the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly. The interim constitution 2006 stands automatically dissolved as the new constitution was not drafted in time. This means that the 1990 constitution with monarchy stands automatically revived. Now it is a high time Nepal also should be careful to save her indigenous culture & traditions. If monarchy and the Hindu Kingdom will abolish from Nepal, India also can’t secure. Due to the absence of Nepalese monarchy and will finish all the religious culture and traditions of India because there is the special rights of the king for the various Dhams & Temples of India. Similarly, China also will divide in the name of free-Tibet. This is why China’s great leader Mao Ze Dong other Chinese leaders support the royal institution in Nepal for Nepal-China security.
Nepali Congress leader and senior advocate Devendra Nepali wrote in a daily newspaper- ‘If the interim constitution 2006 fails to draft a new constitution then it will automatically dissolve and become defunct. The existence of the political parties was accepted as per the 1990 constitution; in this sense the 1990 constitution is seen as the legal parent of the political parties. It was established by the 1990 constitution viewing the people as sovereign. The dissolution of the interim constitution will automatically revive and activate the constitutional monarchy, multiparty parliamentary system and all other organs and institutions under 1990 constitution. It is fallacious to posit a nation without a constitution when the legality of the 1990 constitution revives.’ So it is necessary to restore the constitutional monarchy in Nepal implementing the 1990 constitution.
Royal Institution is compulsion and necessity to establish the nation. To rescue this holy land from an imminent dark future, all patriotic forces, the Nepalese monarchy, and the people, the Nepal Army, court and the chief organs of the State must all unite and defend the nation from chaos. In 2063 Bs 11 Baishak (2006 24 April), the monarch handed over the regime to be governed in accordance to 1990 constitution. But the traitors and corrupts after coming to power abolished the 2047 Bs constitution without the knowledge of the monarch and imposed interim constitution. Late Girija including leaders from NC, UML and Maoist who took oath from the King at the royal palace betrayed the King. And then, after expiry of the CA, they have appointed the CJ Khilraj Regmi for 2nd CA election without constitution ruining the basic democratic concept of check and balance of ‘Judiciary’ by the hints of foreigners to break Nepal. So, anyhow, the 2nd CA election should be cancelled for the sake of Nepalese stability, unity and sovereignty. The 1990 constitution is not dead. The King must and will be reinstated as per 2047 Bs (1990) constitution. Thousands and thousands Nepalese people are voicing around Nepal ‘King Come, save the Nation.’
