For some time being , Nepal was literally a battle place,its government fighting on Many fronts at the same time.
The most difficult situation for Modi Government was the growing anti-India sentiment in Nepal and it was a big challenge to bring strained and distanced ties to normalcy.
Finally it seems that goal has been achieved and this win should be considered as a win for PM Narendra Modi’s Government.
Now K P Sharma Oli government has finally agreed to amend Constitution to satisfy Madhesis.
This is certainly a great news considering for past many months a shadow war was growing between these two Nations and their government.
Our ministry of external affairs has welcomed these amendments and said on Monday, “We are confident that a return to normalcy in Nepal would create a more secure and predictable climate for unimpeded commerce between our two countries.”
Urging all sides in Nepal to show “flexibility”, India asked “all Nepali political forces to now demonstrate the necessary maturity and flexibility to find a satisfactory solution to the constitutional issues through constructive dialogue in an agreed time frame”.
A Nepal government statement said, “The process for the adoption of the Constitution amendment bill tabled in Parliament will be advanced in order to ensure the participation in the state organs on the basis of proportionate inclusiveness and for the delineation of electoral constituencies on the basis of population while ensuring at least one constituency in each district existing at the time of the commencement of this constitution.” The government said the issues of citizenship would be resolved through negotiations and consensus.
The statement said, “With regard to the demarcation of provinces, in view of the demands of the agitating parties, appropriate arrangement will be made in the Constitution on the basis of political consensus. In order to forge such political consensus, a political mechanism will be constituted, which will submit its report along with recommendations within three months.”
