[House of Representatives (HoR) has unanimously endorsed the historic declaration called House Proclamation 2063.]

In a historic declaration, the House of Representative is minutes away from declaring itself the supreme body of Nepal and removing the king from the Supreme Commander of the Nepal Army (not Royal Nepal Army anymore) and bringing the king under the tax. There is no Hindu Kingdome in the world by constitution; Nepal has become the secular state. The declaration is indeed historic and empowered people in real sense.

Prime Minister’s Warning:

While tabling the proposal, Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala warned anyone trying to ignore the declaration will face tough actions from Nepali people. “This Proclamation has reflected the desire of the people and each and every word of the Proclamation is written with the blood of the martyrs who sacrificed their lives. If anyone dares to underestimate the House Proclamation 2063, will face dire consequences.” He also request people to cautiously watch the developments in the days to come. “I appeal to all the people to raise their voices against those who attempt to undermine the proclamation.” Koirala’s warning was indirectly addressed to the royal palace.

Koirala requested the speaker to read out the declaration citing his poor health. Speaker Subash Nembang read out the declaration amidst the constant applauds of the members of the house. Members of the Parliament clapped for as long as 30 seconds when speaker read that the current provision of the Supreme Commader of the Army was scrapped. They also welcome by long clap when speaker said that Royal Nepal Army will be renamed Nepal Army.

The declaration also states that all constitutional and legal provisions that conflict with the declaration will be declared void.

Lets listen to what Surya Bahadur Thapa, former Prime Minisgter and a traditional royalist, has to say on the discussion this afternoon (he is speaking as we are writing these lines): “As a citizen at the end of his life, today I am proud to be the member of a supreme and all powerful Parliament.”

This is the happiest day for me, a person who has suffered a lot [from the king] that people are being supreme here today. I am a son people and I am elated. I thank those young people who fought so hard in the Jana Andolan. We heartily welcome this declaration.

Sher Bahadur Deuba, former Prime Minister who was sacked twice by autocratic king Gyanendra while speaking at the Parliament this afternoon. He is speaking in the discussion on the historic declaration as we write these lines .

Addressing the House in Hindi, Hridayesh Tripathi, leader of Nepal Sadhbhavana Party (Anandidevi) welcomed the declaration.

We were waiting for this day for the last 56 years. Thanks to the people of Nepal, this has turned into a reality.- Chitra Bahadur KC, Jana Morcha

  2. Humana People to People is a global network of aid
    agencies from more than 40 countries on five continents.
    Forged during the upheaval engendered by the system of Apartheid in South Africa in the 1970s, Humana recognized that the end of colonialism and Apartheid in 1994 was not the end of suffering.
    While they had assisted in winning the fight for equality in South Africa, there
    were communities in need across the globe. The obvious continuation of their program to help people in South Africa was to extend
    this aid to the rest of the world. Thus, Humana People to People was born from the struggle for basic human rights for all people.

    To call Humana People to People an aid agency is to oversimplify its core guiding principles
    and its aim when it enters communities. Rather than simply offering aid in the way that one
    might cover a wound with a bandage, Humana seeks to transform
    whole communities, giving them tools that will enable them to solve their current problems and
    guard against issues that might arise in the future. This is a “top
    down” approach that maintains the only way to aid
    both people and communities is to fundamentally change the core elements that keep them from succeedi\
