3 States: Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali: A New Proposal

This has been proposed.

My first criticism is that this has been designed to continue with the colonization of the Madhesh. This is designed to make sure the police, the army and the administration remain as they are. You still will have Pahadi CDOs in Madhesi districts. You will continue with the Pahadi police lording over the Madhesh.

There are ways to rectify those colonial tendencies.

As for the map, my counter proposal would be as follows.

In this proposal, you necessarily end up with five layers of government and strong district governments. Some might ask, why go for five when three can be had?
