PDF File Size: 1.33 MB | Download   
As expected, November saw considerably more activity at the ground level from both those advocating for, and those opposing identity based federalism.Both the CPN-UML as well as the NC have been vocal in blaming the opposition parties for blocking constitution drafting process whilst continuing to make assurances that a first draft will be ready for the scheduled date of 22 January. The CPN –UML has increasingly vocaled in its opposition to identity based Federalism.
Pro Hindu parties continue to oppose secularism and are still making demands for Nepal to return to Hindu state. Following state intervention in an ongoing relay hunger strike in Kathmandu demanding Nepal return to a Hindu state effigies of PM and the HM were burnt in Nepalgunj by members of RPP-N and the Shiv Sena. The RPP-N is about to embark on a cross country signature campaign advocating for an end to secularism. The party Chairman Kamal Thapa has also announced an alliance with the former HM and NC leader Khum Bahadhur Khadka. The Chairperson of the RPP Pashupati Shumsher Rana has also publicly spoken regarding the issue stating that secularism should be decided through a referendum. The 20 party alliance has been continuing its protest programs holding mass meetings in Panchtar, Janakpur and Dhangadhi though attendance was reportedly not very high. Whilst in Jankapur Prachanda
reportedly spoke of his unwavering support to the Madhesi cause. Interestingly Prachanda made a surprise visit to Rolpa stopping in Dang on the way where he spoke publicly accusing the NC and CPN-UML of obstructing the constitution drafting process. Whilst in Rolpa he reportedly stated he is even ready to go
back to war if required. His visit to Rolpa has been issue of much speculation though many see it as an opportunity for him to gauge his support base. Other members of the 20 party alliance have been critical of the NC/CPN–UML federal state proposal with the Tharuwat Tarai Party–Nepal(TTP-N) publicly objecting
to Prachanda’s alleged pro Undivided Far West remarks made whilst holding a mass meeting in Dhangadhi.
