Dear Prof Lohani
There are two oft repeated sayings that are relevant in the present context. First one is “there are many a slip between cup and the lip.” And second one is “seeing is believing.” I will be assured only after president comes out with a firm statement to the effect that a care taker government lead by BR Bhattarai lacks executive authority to promulgate ordinances, even essential ones. Then it is overdue on his part to call for the formation of consensus government in accordance with Article 38(1) of the Constitution. As the care taker PM never stood second, he seems to be achieving the first rank in not being able to read the writing on the wall, too.
With best regards,

Subject: Re: Amendment of constitution by Ordinance
Dear Ratna Sansarji,
I have also come across the same news and if this is so, the President will not take things lying low.As President whose responsibility is to safeguard the Constitution and preserve the independence and national integrity, he is above partisan politics and he is not supposed to ditto the decisions such as ordinances forwarded by the cabinet for his approval.I think things are moving in the right direction.
All the best and regds,
