Dear Prof. Lohani
I have known Surya jee since a long time and have known him to be different from the most. I trust him fully.
However, what is important is what the president will do and whether he will do before it is too late; time’s running away. Country has been without a government with executive power for more than 7 weeks. Care taker PM wants to perpetuate this till other political parties give in to UCPNM’s “demands” like state restructuring on ethnocentric lines. In a way this country has been held ransom to have their demand to have Nepal restructured on ethnocentric lines (जातिय आधारमा संघियता) met; you must have noted that they have offered to form all party consensus government only after this demand of theirs is met.
Most disturbing is the fact that we now have governance by ordinance (kind of by “executive order” of care taker government), which isn’t possible without president’s concurrence; president has, I hope, unwittingly become hand-in-glove with care taker PM in all this.
I have even offered to go meet president to get our point across, if necessary. I wonder if you would be prepared to join the “delegation”.
With best regards,

Dear Ratna Sansarji,
Dr Dhungel 's response to your comments and his assurance that all such comments regarding the kind of initiative that the President might or must take will be brought to the notice of the Rt.Ho'ble President give one the impression that the President is fully alive to the prevailing deadlocked situation in which consensus has not emerged.Advisers like Dr.Dhungel,I'm sure, must have already briefed the President about the action that the nation expects from the President at this crucial juncture.
