As per the agreement, Gyanendra’s properties that he inherited along with the crown in 2001 will be nationalized, he will have no role whatsoever in the state of affairs in Nepal and the fate of monarchy will be decided by the simple majority of the first meeting of the Constituent Assembly. According to the statement issued by Shah’s office in Narayanhitti, he has “expressed his happiness” over the agreement. Shah has basically confied himself within the high walls of Narayanhitti since the third week of April when he was nearly overthrown by the popular uprising.
