This is a historic day. It is a decisive moment the democratic process and building the stable, prosperous future that the people of Nepal justly deserve. The European Union assures the people of Nepal of their continuing support, to help them secure peace, democracy and development.

The re-election was held as none of the candidates reached the magic number, 298, in the first round of election of President on Saturday (19 July). MPRF candaite Parmananda Jha was elected vice president on that day. Supporters of NC candidate Dr Yadav had gathered at the Constituent Assembly hall in New Baneshwor in the capital to celebrate his victory.

National People’s Front Nepal, Nepal Workers and Peasants Party, CPN-United and Chure Bhawar Rastriya Ekata Party who had previously boycotted the Saturday’s election to pick the president and vice president participated in today’s poll. Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal, who has four CA members, refrained from the poll run-off today as well. Dr Yadav had received 283 out of total 573 votes cast while Singh gained 270 votes.

The chances of NC candidate Dr Yadav’s victory had gotten stronger after different fringe parties expressed their support for him. CPN-UML and Madhesi People’s Rights Forum (MPRF) maintained their positions favouring Dr Yadav, while the National People’s Front Nepal (NPFN) and the Nepal Workers and Peasants Party (NWPP) who had previously boycotted Saturday’s election also voted the NC presidential candidate. Likewise, the Chure Bhawar Rastriya Ekata Party, Loktatrik Samajwadi Dal and Nepal Pariwar Dal who have one member each in the CA have supported him. Even the two independent CA members had announced to vote in favour of Dr Yadav. Similarly, CPN-ML, Rastriya Prajatantra Party, CPN-United and Rastriya Janashakti Party who have nine, eight, five and three members respectively in the CA expressed solidarity to NC candidate Dr Yadav. Amik Sherchan of People’s Front Nepal and Shyam Sundar Gupta of Nepal Sadbhawana Party-Anandidevi have also announced to vote for Dr Yadav.

On the other hand, Maoist candidate Singh has the support of 226 Maoist lawmakers, 21 Terai-Madhes Democratic Party, nine Sadbhawana Party, two Sadbhwana Party-Anandidevi, seven People’s Front Nepal, two Nepal Janta Dal and one Dalit Janajati Party lawmaker.

    Pramananda Jha’s taking oath of office in Hindi is very objectionable because if some MP of Gurung or Sherpa communities demand to take oath of office in their Gurung or Sherpa language then we must allow them to take oath in their languages, and that will create chaos.

    Got it what i was saying? It’s just the beginning. If the Dhoti is allowed to swore in dhoti language, then the groups should alos be allowed to speak in their own language at the CA meetings. Then it will be fun to see how grave a mistake it was to the dhoti language in national media.

    How about changing/replacing VP-Mr P Jha?

    What a shame!…..oath in Hindi? I’m not aware that oath can be taken in a foreign language. I think, our Netas don’t care about Nepalese people at all. Even in Indians MPs don’t take Oath in Hindi language instead they take in English. I think Mr Jha is using our country’s democracy by showing his disrespect for Nepal and People of Nepal.

    Even Sonia Gandhi is not allowed to be a president or a prime minister for India even though she speaks Hindi and is Hindu just because The Indians thinks she is not a Indian and won’t tolerate millions of people of India govern by a foreigner. So why Nepal should tolerate this, why anyone could not condemn or stop him there and then as soon as they heard him?

    I think too much freedom among Nepali politics now. I suggest, Nepali language should be made mandatory from now on. If anyone wants to speaks in hindi then they should be dismissed (they can speak Hindi in their House)

    Even Britain, foreigner need to learn “Britishness” that means its language, culture and its beliefs. shouldn’t our leaders learn about Nepali values, culture and its beliefs?

    Mr JHA not only use Indian Language but he was wearing DHOTI and there was no ‘Bhatgaule Topi” We have every right to ask our Netas about their Patriotism. Mr Jha seems so against Nepali values by wearing Indian Dhoti.

    Even, South Indian speak Hindi language…..oh my god, how an earth he used that language in heart of our place?

    I also suggest that Media should be allowed to ask questions or Media should ask question to Mr Jha about his action???

    Mr Jha didn’t challenged but he shows his cowardliness and stupidity. After all you are living in our soil that means Nepal is providing you food and shelter. Not only that most importantly we are providing you citizenships.

    Can Arun and Mukesh tell me that – Does India provides you any of these? It doesn’t matter how you humiliate Nepal. Live in the real world.

    I don’t think Indians recognize you as Indian if you go in Indian, you will live as minority. Let me make you clear “You are a huge Burden of Nepal”. You don’t recognize a Diamond from a Stone! So how can measure the value of Nepal?

  25. Rolpali Avatar


    The likes of Mukesh, arun, and Ali are half indians. Their maternal uncle’s home is in India. Basically, they are half indian, for whom, nepali nationality, is of no value. They go to school in neighboring bihar and UP, become professionals through indian embassy quota, marry bihari chicks, and take dowry in Indian rupees. If the dowry is not up to their likings, we all know what they do with brides.

    In other words, they were never true nepali to begin with. What do you expect from them? Let astray dogs bark!

    Do you know one thing??
    Even VP Paramanand Jha were took oath in Nepali, wear Daura Suruwal and Dhaka or Bhadgaule Topi, h e would still BHAIYA, MADISHE, INDIAN, DHOTI.
    Your language would Never change, so he did that.
    Dhoti is not INDIAN Dress, If you Know about MITHILA(a place which is now both in India and Nepal), It belongs to there.
    The Next,if A Pahade CLOTH can be national Cloth why Madheshi cloth or Maithil clothes can not be national cloth???
    Everything is changing, National ANTHEM, Name of Army, Airways, Name of Police etc, then why madheshi can not free to speak Hindi and wear Dhoti???
    You Pahade people made us this,we Love Nepal Not less than you , but your attitude made us this and we just love Madhesh and Madheshi, We Just hate you bastard !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Keep your citizenship certificate safely because some day we will check your citizenship to figure out whether you are a true terai bashi or someone who just crossed the southern border in order to get the Nepali citizenship illegally. By the way, Is Charesananda Jha (Paramanda is a convicted criminal in hasis scandal) your Uncle?

    Mukesh Jha,

    You need to understand why not a single person speaks against Dr. Ram Baran Yadav but hundreds of people have already spoken against Paramanda Jha. Because Paramanda Jha is a corrupt judge convicted by the judicial councial for releasing a notorious drug smuggler in exchange of hefty amount of bribe. That is why he is called charesananda Jha. He was also demoted from the the post of temporary judge of the supreme court to the appleate court judge of Biratnagar.

    South Indians do not speak Hindi. They don’t even watch Bollywood Movies. They think Hindi is the Bihari language. Since you are in Scotland you must have noticed that when one Indian meets another Indian they always speak English.
    Now back to the VP Jha issue. This is not a minor problem. He could have taken oath in Maithili to respect one of the languages of Nepal. In Hindi? This is outright criminal. CA members should recall and revote another suitable person for the VP position.

    This is the basic difference between the patriotic King who for the sake of the national reconciliation relinquished his power with a smile on his face.

    Yet these Indian agents like Jha take oath in hindi to further hurt the Nepalese pride.

    We know who are true sons of this country and who are the traitors. Make no mistake.

    Parmananda Jha is not only pro-Indian, he is also anti-Nepali. The problem lies in his being pro-Indian, not his corrupt past because all politicians are corrupt by nature. This is a guy who takes oath in the language of a foreign country. Which ethnic group’s mother tongue is Hindi in Nepal? I would not have problem if he had taken oath of office in Maithali or Bhojpuri or Tharu language. But Hindi? Are you kidding me? There has to be a constitutional provision to prohibit from using any language other than ethnic.
    I blame largely Maoists and other political parties for allowing this pro-Indian and anti-Nepali act to happen.
