UML by its nature is more inclined towards a republican set up than another major alliance Congress. Therefore, it is not surprising to see UML taking a lead to revamp the nation. Though they should compromise with the allocation of ministries for the sake of the general interests of the people, they should not buzz from the demands in the like of scrapping Raj Parishad, and bringing army under the parliament among others. Moreover there is a need for a change in national anthem too. Why should we be chanting the praise of Gyanendra when he killed so many Nepalese? We really need to get away from such national anthems.
I still remember how maoists started the drive of changing the national anthem in their native areas. Though they replaced national anthems with their so-called revolutionary songs, that was a good start to get away with the main suppressor of Nepal for decades.
In addition, we seriously need to revise the name of our government. We are not the puppets of Gyanendra that our government be named as “sri-panch ko sarkar.” It really sucks to have been lived under such a slave environment but what options did we have? We need to change the name to “Nepal Sarkar.” I feel like UML is doing a good job pressing the government to take these bold steps even before the CA elections.
Despite the fact that I hate Maoists for their bloody revolution, I give them credit for bringing the monarchy down to the ground. Though we are not totally done with the king, there is a high chance that we will establish a republican set up. However, this came at the cost of more than 12000 lives. So, was it worth it? We are still to see the results but definitely we should lead the country to that level which pays a sincere tribute to the death of those people.
