Former King Gyanendra indicates monarchy could stage comeback

By Bhola B Rana

Kathmandu, 25 March: Leaders of major political parties reacted sharply to former King Gyanendra’s statement monarchy isn’t dead yet.
He also told Avenue Television Wednesday there have rises and falls, comings and goings in history, indicating monarchy could stage a comeback in Nepal with people’s desire.
“I don’t feel like it has ended. That’s why it’s hypothetical. While turning the pages of history of nations, rise and fall and comings and goings happen, I feel.
“That’s why I want to repeat, the people should decide through deep thought and responsibly and whatever the people decide should be accepted by all.
“My wish is whatever the majority want. I feel right now there’s need for the security of life and property of ordinary people. My prayer is let there be peace in the country,” Gyanendra said in response to a question.
“You’ve asked a hypothetical question,” the last Shah king said in reply to a question whether he’ll ready to be king again if the people desire.
“Whether its monarchy or other national issues, the people’s thoughts and wishes should be accepted by all.”
The former king said he’ll continue to stay in Nepal.
“My plan before and now is to stay in Nepal, serve Nepal and Nepalis,” he said in reply to a question. “Concern is for the nation and national unity. Let the ordinary people stay comfortably and in peace.”
The only person to be king twice anywhere said in reply to a question he was conducting power politics,” I don’t have that thought and intention. We left without doing anything for the country’ s peace and well-being.”
The 10th king said: “Kings have never sought power. No king anytime has said he’s god. I’ve never personally found it difficult before or now to go to the people.”
UML Chairman Jhalanath Khanal said: “Nepali people have ended monarchy. The decision of history can’t be resurrected.”
Nepali Congress parliamentary party leader Ram Chandra Paudel said,” The statement of Gyanendra Shah in Janakpur is an effort to undermine the janaandonan. Nepali Congress are not in favour of turning back.
Maoist Vice-chairman Dr Baburam Bhattarai demanded immediate action against the former king.
“Former King Gyanendra has spoken against the people’s wish and decision of history. That is challenge to people’s wish. People should counter his challenge. He should be brought before the people and should be charged.
‘We ask the government to immediately take action against Gyanendra and initiate charges,” Bhattarai said.


“As a junior justice of the supreme court, I have developed negative feelings for the senior judges whom I wait for hours on end to join a bench for hearing but the so-called senior judges spent hours smoking cigarettes inside their chambers.”

(Supreme Court Justice Bharat Raj Upreti, The Himalayan Times, 25 March)

“We accepted Girijababu as the head of the mechanism because of his seniority. Now the other parties don’t have what it takes to lead the mechanism.”

(Maoist Vice-Chairman Mohan Baidya Kiran, The Kathmandu Post, 25 March)
