Nepal: April Revolution, a year after.

Categories: South Asia, Nepal, Politics

Kathmandu Speaks [1] reflects on the April Revolution a year after. “Here it is about Madhesi representation and the unfinished revolution. There is an element of truth in all the allegations about the fires that raged here in January: royalist meddling, a ‘foreign hand’, forces of Hindu fundamentalism, disgruntled, disaffected members of society disturbing the democratisation process, the government’s inability to maintain law and order. But none of these explanations gets to the heart of the problem.”
