Laxman Prasad Aryal dead

Kathmandu, 16 Sept: Retired supreme court justice Laxman Prasad Aryal died Wednesday after a protracted illness.
As coordinator, Aryal helped present rulers draft the interim constitution after a 1990 basic law drafted by the incumbent rulers was shred to pieces by them.
With fundamental and deep difference between major political players a new constitution is unlikely to be rafted within the 28 May 2010 deadline.
Aryal also helped draft the 1990 constitution.
Rarely in the world are there people who draft a replacement constitution by shredding one they helped write raising a question on their fundamental political beliefs and personal credibility.
One politician even claims of having led and participated in five ‘revolutions’ in Nepal in 50 years.
