No Solution In Sight

As agitating Madhesh-based parties rally to mark the 100 days of their agitation, no political settlement is likely any time soon. With the decision of the agitating parties to intensify their protests, the situation has already worsened. As the fighting factions are yet to come close for negotiations, Nepal’s political stalemate and current blockade appear prone to continue for some time to come, creating more difficulties for the common people. Following almost a month of dillydallying, Nepal’s three major parties have agreed to amend the constitution, presenting the amendment bill presented by the previous government. This, however, is unlikely to end the current hardship and agitation. This move will further widen the gap as the agitating parties are demanding a package of agreements, including on the boundary of the provinces. As the border blockade continues in Birgunj, the gateway to Nepal’s trade, Nepal’s economy is badly bleeding. Just as we have been saying that Nepal’s internal political instability has nothing to do with the constitution but is an outcome of the geostrategic interests of Asia’s two great powers, nothing in immediate sight will bring stability in Nepal. As political actors are unpredictable as the political scenario they have created, we have decided to cover Nepal’s Participation in COP 21 as this edition's cover story. Despite the terrorist attack that killed over 160 innocent people in France, that country is hosting COP 21. We stand with the French efforts to fight the Islamic terrorism and eradicate IS, the Islamic Terror outfit. By hosting COP21, France has shown its courage before the world.  We also cover various other issues, including the post-earthquake construction.
