Fewer than four months are left for the new republic to promulgate the new constitution, conclude the peace process and provide justice to the victims of violent conflict of the past. However, all major issues related to the peace process are now in limbo. Constitutional writing and integration process are virtually stalled. The transitional justice system is under controversy following the proposal by Maoist party to give blanket amnesty. In this context, we have made efforts to look into Nepal’s constitutional crisis and its relationship with Nepal’s overall political crisis. We have tried to analyze various aspects of the crises as our cover story for this issue. Similarly, we have also analyzed the overall scenario following the price hike in petroleum products.
Along with politics, we have also covered important issues of the last week. As Nepal is celebrating the Lumbini Year, this issue peeks into the new drive to promote tourism in Nepal. Similarly, the threat of earthquake in Kathmandu is another topic for coverage besides the regular columns.
