Despite significant advances in dealing with the issue of cantonments and the future of the Maoist army, progress on one structural transformation foreshadowed in the Peace Agreement, that of becoming a country ruled by law rather than wealth, power, connections or inherited privilege, may be reversing. This must be seen with considerable alarm. To be ruled by law, is to agree to a set of rules that members of society—and the State itself—agree to live by, and ‘impose’ on each other. These rules are laid out transparently, for all to see. They are backed by a broad recognition that they are in the interest of the collective good. They must be equally enforceable on all citizens, without exception, and on the State itself.Their adjudication must be entrusted to an independent judiciary, free of political interference. And very importantly, their enforcement is entrusted to the State, and only the State, if necessary through physical force.
