Comments on: Amid chaos, Nepal’s king bows out gracefully Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 By: gurnath prakash Tue, 17 Jun 2008 16:11:55 +0000 Its sad that we do not have a king for Nepal. But again, things have to move on. Its time India really rework at its policy with Nepal. May be have a passport and visa system to travel to Nepal and have Nepalis traveling to India have a Visa . Crime would go up with the new Kings- the Maoists in Nepal. ISI is active so are so many other anti-Indian elements. The issue which is not focussed in Maoists won on Anti-Indian sentiment. The people who are managing the affairs are neo-converts to Christianity. Who are a subtle crusader type of attitude. Thats a cause for concern.

It could mean a Nepal which is disintegrated immersed in civil war with chaotic political system and corrupt politicians.
Monarchy is a victim of circumstances and a scapegoat who bore the brunt of the maoist movement. The democratic parties rode on the maoist shoulder to regain power but do not have the required legitimacy to govern the country as has been shown in the recent constituency assembly election polling.
Millions of nepali citizenship were given to indians to outnumber the locals and create continuous problem in terai.
The country also seems to be rushing into a civil war in the near future between the indian immigrants and nepalese government just like the one you have in Sri Lanka.
With all the emerging scenario, it is likely the real Nepal will feel the necessity of the monarchy in the near future.
But it could be a little too late!
