दिल्ली र बेइजिङका अगाडि हात नफैलाउ : उपेन्द्र यादव कमल थापा दिल्लीबाट हप्काई खाएर फर्किएको दावी

दिल्ली र बेइजिङका अगाडी हात फैलाउनुभन्दा मधेशीको अधिकार सुनिश्चत गरे समस्या मुलुकभित्रै समाधान हुने उनले बताए ।

The wise doyen of Nepali political science, who has taught generations of Nepali politicians and academics, Lok Raj Baral, has a brilliant piece today on why Nepal needs to look within

the constitution could not meet some of the demands of the Madhesis/Tharus and other ethnic communities. This provoked the Madhesis and Tharus to launch a protest movement for the rectification of the constitution....... India expected the new constitution to redress the grievances of the various communities and regional groupings until the eleventh hour before the finalisation of the statue. Two days before promulgation, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent his special envoy to persuade Nepali leadership to postpone the date for declaring the constitution by a few more days to incorporate the demands of the dissenting groups and prevent the opposition by the Madhesis. Instead, the leaders of the three parties—Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN (Maoist)—went ahead and declared the statute. Then, India merely ‘noted’ the promulgation of the constitution....... Such multiplicity of natural and structural linkages has made the countries inseparable despite being two sovereign independent nations........ To everyone’s surprise, the Madhesi/Tharu agitation has endured for a long time seeping discontent across villages and communities. The Madhesi agitation in 2007 though shortlived had produced significant results and established the Madhesi identity and power in Nepal’s political structure. In the governments formed post-2007, Madhesi leaders could tilt the power balance in their favour through their unprecedented presence in the Cabinet. The Madhesis also became the first president and vice president of republican Nepal. In addition, there has been a significant transformation in the Nepali psyche which now recognises the new political landscape where all segments of society claim proportional representation in the government...... Many Nepalis argue for raising the issue of the Indian ‘blockade’ in regional and international forums. As a realist, I do not think of regionalisation or internalisation of Nepal-India relations as a solution as it would do more harm than good to Nepal. Emotive statements and unrealistic propositions will not help to resolve the current impasse either. Mixing up my views with someone else’s, a reporter misquoted me last week and presented that I was for internationalisation of the present Nepal-India border problem....... When people fighting for democracy and human rights call for international or regional or national support, then it becomes an ‘invited’ intervention. In the current context, the Madhesi parties openly asked for Indian help and their supporters lobbied at various levels. So, as a last resort, the Madhesi parties obstructed the movement of goods near the border giving an opportunity to the Indian side to be sympathetic towards Madhesi demands.....

Political leaders of Nepal have themselves provided such an opportunity to India by not addressing the demands of the Madhesis and Tharus.

The Tarai is a region of importance because of its physical contiguity and social commonalities. Such close human relations among people of two countries are incomparable. Even the Tamil community in Sri Lanka cannot be compared with the Madhesi population in Nepal as Sri Lanka is separated by the Palk Strait with India despite its Tamil Nadu connection. Yet, India’s foreign policy is influenced by such connections and the central government of India cannot fully bypass Tamil Nadu’s concerns about Sri Lankan Tamils. Nevertheless,

India did not accept the Tamil secessionist movement in Sri Lanka taking its possible fallout on the unity and integrity of India into account.

.... The Nepali political elites also need to be more pragmatic and resilient to meet the demands of the Madhesis/Tharus as a first step towards normalising relations with India. Nepalis in general have suffered a great deal. So the sooner the border problem ends, the better would be the health of Nepal-India relations. ..... it is imperative for Nepal to devise both short-term and long-term strategies to set its house in order and then to move on to reassessing Nepal-India relations.
