It has been almost a decade we all Nepalese have been waiting for this most awaited moment since the ouster of monarchy system in Nepal. One of the most awaited constitution in Nepal’s history which promises to preserve the rights of the people in or out of minority section of Nepal. And, additionally, ensure the rights of those unprivileged who have been battered by the erstwhile monarchy system somehow.
With the advent of constitution assembly (CA) poll of Nepal and the date which has been set for November 19, 2013, the politicians are bracing up for the most historic day in the history. Alongside, Nepal government is also doing its homework and seems quite busy making arrangements for the poll – from security to printing ballots for the election. This is the second time Nepal government has deployed army personals for maintaining security during the election period. For which, approximately 4000 army men are being deployed from East to West of Nepal, while attention has been more focused in some vulnerable areas of polling sites which accounts for 12 sites from East to West of Nepal.
The CA poll is thought to have approximately 11,000 candidates vying for 335 seats. But, the sad thing is that most of the Nepalese are still not prepared for this time, as it seems like the preparation has been made in haste taking into account of unceasing protraction of the polling date since Maoists came into peace process and Nepal was declared the secular state from Hindu state.
It appears as if this polling date has been preplanned taking into account of the festive season so that the local candidate leaders can campaign for their election and might have influence on the local people while they are at home. And, most of all, those promises are some lofty promises which is unattainable with the current country’s economic status, the hard nut policies of Nepal government in different sectors which hinders the smooth developmental transition and this has galvanized sense of apprehension in denizens from East to West.
The most hilarious of all is the chameleon and changeling nature of these politicians. It is really difficult for us to believe these guys who were once busy in kidnapping, killing and hooliganism is now bowing their heads as if they are the most humble person alive on this earth. They are busy going to everybody’s doorstep and offering their greetings by literally falling in the feet of the elders in their area from which they are vying for this election. What a shame!
The real big question is, how can you trust somebody who were once responsible for kidnapping your loved ones is now all of a sudden falling at your feet. And, even that for a “mere vote”?! Doesn’t it look disgusting? The only thing to learn from whatever going in our society is that – WE CAN’T REALLY TRUST, but few exceptions those who are really determined to do something for this country through this constitution assembly election.
It is not good to pick one from these bunch of morons (politicians) and make a target examples. But, I confidently can say with full conviction that most of these morons come from background with zero education. Some of them are completely illiterate. How are you supposed to talk, facilitate and give you opinion for the sensitive issues like constitution while you are yourself completely devoid of these black letters? And, how are we citizens supposed to assimilate their opinion in the form of constitution?
There are innumerable questions to be answered by the state to its people about their right, such as: 1) Who these unknown faces are who are completely illiterate and boasts about representing our rights? 2) Can we believe and put our future on their shoulders and leave it up to them to determine our fate? 3) How can somebody who use to be a barber is going to be a constitution assembly member and talking about our fate to be determined in the history of Nepal? 4) Is this the face of new Nepal we have been waiting for? 5) Is it even possible to make 300,000 job opportunities every year for the Nepalese in Nepal? No body is magician here who can make overwhelming jobs posts available overnight. We have seen it all our life – this is simply not attainable.
Folks its time to muse on this matter serious before it is too late and you see your rights slipping off your hands and being confiscated against your will! The hard truth is that we are more divided than we ever were. Every party is representing their community – What an insular vision is that?! How can somebody who is so divided in his/her community itself will ever going to have a future insight in the long run?
The fact is, all over the world, “action speaks louder than words”, but in Nepal, “Weapon speaks louder than anything”! – AND THIS IS HOW THEY ARE GOING TO WRITE THE CONSTITUTION OF NEW NEPAL AND NOT BY THE INCLUSION OF THE GENERAL PEOPLE’S OPINION!
So, who are you going to vote this time????
