[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

  1. Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work?

    I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share
    my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you
    have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  5. Netter Artikel. Ähnlich schön, wie das Zocken von Games auch.
    So verschrieen das Daddeln auch ist, so ist wissenschaftlich
    festgestellt worden, dass das Gaming, eine gewisse Reife
    des Gamers vorausgesetzt, förderlich für die Stressbewältigungskapazität
    ist. Beim Spielen lernt der Spielende in angenehmer Atmosphäre schneller als üblich zu Reagieren und seine
    Prioritäten zu verteilen. Viele Spiele vermitteln darüber hinaus auch noch Basiswissen über
    das Haushalten mit begrenzten Ressourcen und fördern logisches Denken.
    Auch die verrissenen MMOs können doch häufig den vorgeworfenen Effekt des Abdriftens in eine virtuelle Realität} umkehren.
    Der Spieler kann wohl auch vielen unfreundlichen Menschen begegnen, allerdings
    findet der Gamer sehr oft genau in seinem Favoriten Gleichgesinnte.

    Summa summarum: zocken ist hammer! Spielen ist Kunst.

    To handle stress that results when our expectations go unfulfilled, we invite participants in our Landmark Education courses to try letting
    themselves be 100% given to an issue -to view the events unfold rather than looking to force those events to adapt exactly to their
    expectations. The main factor in changing childhood education is society.
