Other heritage activists also agree with Shrestha. "Judging from the most recent developments, the controversial Guthi bill is going to create a big rift within the strong communist government, eventually leading to its downfall. The Communication Minister Gokul Baskota called the Guthi system feudalistic at a press conference," writes Alok Siddhi Tuladhar, an active heritage activist in his face book wall.

The Communication Minister Gokul Baskota called the Guthi system feudalistic at a press conference. In retaliation, the "pawn" Member of Parliament Rambir Manandhar has demanded his resignation at another press meet. Both of them belong to the powerful communist coalition that holds two-thirds majority in the parliament. On the other hand, agitators have upped the ante and are now demanding that the Guthi Corporation of the government be permanently dissolved, and that the government return all Guthi land that was nationalized in 1964 CE to its rightful owners. Things are really heating up. #SayNoToGuthiBill #DissolveGuthiCorporation #GiveBackNationalizedGuthiLandToItsOwners

Although overwhelming members of parliament from both the ruling and opposition party has shown solidarity against the bill, the government is yet to decide how to deal with the current crisis.
