From the past nine years, we have been celebrating the Loktantra as a holiday to be added in the long list. But on real grounds it is a day that marks the death of thousands of innocent people who sacrificed their lives in the name politics and country.
Though many people lost their lives in the name of it but on practical grounds there is much to what we have achieved. Only few selected groups of people have benefited.
The major achievement of the 2006 democratic movement were
1. Constituent Assembly
3. Dethronement of kingship
4. Peace process
If you talk about all these aspect then all of them have failed in majors aspect of performing their objective in terms of public welfare.
The Constituent Assembly has failed time and again to give the country a new constitution. The 601 Constituent Assembly members have become a burden with their high wages and their shameful acts of corruption and power politics where time and again they have failed and portrait their image of bad politics and selfish mentality. It has disgraced the political culture of Nepal dooming the future of politics of Nepal.
Apart from that the country has moved towards the path of secularism but on one hand it may seem to have given the unheard voices a new platform but on the other it has discriminated the majority in presences of giving equal rights to the opposing groups. In country which has 80% of a ruling population of hindus how can you certainly find solution in giving voice to 20% by discriminating the 80%. Equality means giving right to all and giving voice to all, it doesn't mean giving voice to the 20% and shadowing the 80%.
Similarly, dethroning the kingship in Nepal might have been an achievement. But it also made possible for establishment of more than 100 kings who misuse and abuse the power daily in the name security and power.
Now talking about the peace process, it seems the country is moving towards a solution but in reality we are moving backward where due to the long lasting violence people have started to migrate which has resulted in brain drain. In a country where its major work forces is draining outside the country there is very limited scope of development and progress. The peace process of Nepal has stalled the economic and social development of the country in the name of reservation and cooperation. Likewise, still today people are terrorized and their properties have not been returned and people are bound to live with the terror.
So the crux is Nepal lacks leadership in terms of politics and vision which has landed the country in this current position of political chaos. For better solution we need strong political leaders who are nationalist than political puppets ...................
