दीपकजी,एमालेले बुझाएको भनिएको सँघीयता सम्बन्धी प्रस्ताव पार्टीको सँस्थागतहोइन । त्यो एउटा सानो कार्यदलको प्रस्ताव हो । हामी धेरैको विमती छत्यसमा । नेपालमा प्रान्तीय सरकारको आवश्यकतै छैन । नेपालको सँघीय सँरचनाभनेको समुदायको शासन हो ।अर्को बिहीबार मेरो गोरखापत्रमा छापिने लेख समय भएमा पढिदिनु हुन अनुरोध गर्दछु ।

Dear friends,

I feel I won the Nobel prize. I am that happy. Let me share> my story.

Some of you with whom I had a chance to share my view on federalism for Nepal might know that I have been advocating for a federalism based on the STRONGER LOCAL GOVERNMENT and WEAKER/NOMINAL PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT and I had used the success story of the FUGs (Forest User Groups) as my rationalization.

While I was encouraged by the positive view of some of us, I was deeply discouraged by my failure to influence those who were already in bandwagon of STRONG PROVINCIAL or ETHNIC FEDERALISM. I was disappointed with the PROVINCIAL model UML recently submitted to Constituent Assembly.

Anyway, Elinor’s and Keshav Raj’s works and the recognition it has received now has brought my dead spirit to life. And I am encouraged to continue with my advocacy.

If you would to receive the copy of my presentation, let me know. Is it okay, if I send it to this group ?
