    The autocrate king has conveyed the ill fated massage that is going to count his last days ahead. He has no talence to govern the country and perhaps did not know the solution. He has ignored the demand of the people not by knowingly but by a lavish attitude. Bestowed throne by the Raj Parishad, he was not at all in line to be the king as his predecessors. The republic is a must today and this kinship of monarchy is no more a demand of the nation. Decades passed people struggling, a huge number of lives scrificed; the result should be what the honest Nepalese are fighting for – an immediate revolt a complete change in the state governing machinary. We need a united force, a common agenda and greater Nepal.
    Let’s all unite and support our fellowfriends who are at the peak stage to turn down monarch only to a black history …… unbelievable devils, ahead.

    I am not saying that the king should stay in power but can we really trust these leaders??????? We have seen enough in the past 10 years. We just got to be careful with our leader as well. Not much choice we have, do we?

    This movement must be ended soon. We can not tolerate all this torture and power run arbitrarily. We need peace either by democracy or by other means.

    We want to survive peacefully in our motherland… we don’t want any suppression or domination.

    Once again we say… Peace.. Peace….Peace.

    Of course, Nepal into critical condition which may bring a massive change! We like to established a republican Nepal and have get more freedom. It’s all depend on the Seven party alliance and Maoist leading and a most important massive pressure from the people to the leaders! we don’t want to loose this oppertunities and use in right direction done by unconditional consititunational assembly.
    Thanks.

    I guess this historical movment makes Netaji over night millioner, minister of government gives dowery of Government property to their daughter, sell all industries and take share of it, I do not see any difference between kingship and these political parties that is their past . I guess this movment is only success for those leaders who get chance for ministers but it is great loss for true Nepali people we were looking for very new principle than what we had. I guess we need once more movment to change our Nepali future.

    I AM HAPPY ABOUT THE CHANGE THAT THE COUNTRY IS UNDERGOING AT THIS VERY MOMENT BUT ONE TGHING SHOULD NOT BE UNDERMINED THAT MAY THE 1990 DEMOCRACY NOT BE REPEATED WHERE CORRUPTION ,MALLPRACTICES OF THE POWER WERE THE FRONT RUNNERS OF ALL THE CONCERNED AUTHORITIES.
    MAY ALL THE POLITICIANS NOW REALIZE THAT THE TIME HAS COME NOW TO SHOW THAT THEY R ASSUMING THE POWER TO SERVE THE PEOPLE N THE NATION BUT NOT FOR THEMSELVES.

    Hello Friends,

    Nepal is now in a critical phase. It is undergoing changes politically, socially, culturally and finally economically. But our leaders should have a great courage to materialize the expectations of people of all sectors. We should have our own vision, mission and goals to develop the nation within 20 years. Fighting together for only power should be stopped and all the political parties should come up with their 20 years plan and convince people that they are going to develop Nepal according to such vision and mission. Nepal can not stay in status quo and also Nepal can not progress with any foreign model of politics. We have to search our own model of democracy.
    Education sector now has been most vital to bring changes in the nation. But donor directed educaton can no longer bring any changes except in beautiful reports. We now have to make our own strategic plan for education. No matter how much donations and grants we receive, we will not be able to come out of the dominated curriculum and plans. Nepal is being more dependent on foreign support even to manage our own internal sources: banks, hydropower, telecom and many more others. Now leaders, look at the above pictures that people sacrificed their lives to take you to the power. It is yours turn to serve for people.
