18 August 2018 – Kathmandu – As Nepal has never been occupied by foreign invasion but why has so many conflicts and deterioration happening until today? What were the challenges and what has been done till date in last 50 years of political process in Nepal? A brief of timeline has been put forwarded by Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli recently in a conference in Kathmandu.
As per his opinion, Constitution of Nepal is the encapsulation of the collective will of Nepali people and contains all the novel, modern and progressive features of a democratic, inclusive and humanistic polity
As the third anniversary of the promulgation of Nepal’s Constitution, which was adopted by Constituent Assembly on September 20, 2015, is nearing, I am reminded of the excruciating trials and tribulations, and untold pain and suffering people of Nepal had to undergo, to write a document that embodied our hopes and aspirations, and our ideals and faiths, for the wellbeing of people of Nepal for generations to come.
At the same time, I am also aware of the monumental tasks that lie ahead of us in translating into concrete actions the overwhelmingly pro-people, progressive and forward-looking provisions enshrined in our Constitution.
Make no mistake. We will do what the Constitution requires of the Government, and deliver to the people peace, good governance, development and prosperity. The people of Nepal have waited long enough and will not tolerate any excuses whatsoever from this popularly elected Government—a Government of the people, by the people and for the people.
Constitution of Nepal is the encapsulation of the collective will of the Nepali people as a whole, and contains within its 35 Parts and 308 Articles, all the novel, modern and progressive features of a democratic, inclusive and humanistic polity that we have aspired for during the several decades of our political struggles and revolutions.
It recognizes the worth and dignity of every Nepali citizen, and treats every citizen equally, and guarantees fundamental rights and freedoms without any discrimination whatsoever. We deserve to be proud of this apex law of the land.
