          Chairman of the program and Publisher/Editor of Greater Nepal Weekly Surendra Dhakal presented the Latter of Felicitation to Ms. Jaleswori Shrestha and Manoj Pandit. Ms. Sofia Pandit received the plaque on behalf of her husband Manoj Pandit, as Mr. Pandit was out of Kathmandu Valley. 7

          Receiving the letter of felicitation, Border Expert Buddhi Narayan Shrestha thanked the Greater Nepal Weekly, as he was honored by the Weekly. He recalled that he was interviewed by the Weekly and it was published in the first issue of the newspaper. He said he had not approached for the honour. But the Weekly had decided to felicitate him and the Editor of the Weekly asked him to accept the honor. And he accepted it after some conversation with the Editor in telephone.

          Buddhi Narayan Shrestha, as the recipient of Greater Nepal Felicitation said, the issues of sovereignty, nationality and integrity of the nation raised by the Weekly are very relevant and it was necessary for the existence of the country. The Nepalese people have experienced sorrowfulness loosing one third of the nation, with the effect of Treaty of Sugauli- 1816.

            But Nepal could regain the lost territory of Greater Nepal while Nepal will be prosperous and developed as China, in terms of economy, political diplomacy and development of science and technology. Everywhere in the world there are China made merchandise and machinery, electronic goods and materials. So China has dominated economically to most of the countries of the world. Secondly, China is an emerging nation in the United Nations as super power. Thirdly, it has been advancing in the field of science and technology from artificially creating rains to satellite launching.

 2-

          When Nepal will be developed as China, there will be a great possibility to get back the lost portion of the then Greater Nepal. But it may take time. Even if we don’t get back our former territory in our life time, our sons and grand-sons will be able to fetch it. As there are examples as China drew back the lost territory of Hongkong Kowloon after 155 years from Britain. Similarly, China was able to regain Macau after 400 years. It has to be understood that British Empire had ceded that territory making the treaty as similar as the Treaty of Sugauli which was taken place between Nepal and British East India Company. China ultimately pulled back that lost territory from Britain. And why not to retain back the lost territory of Greater Nepal ? It may take some decades and it is the fact. For this, Nepal has to be economically prosperous and developed as in the scale of China.

 12

          On the other hand some of the spots of our present boundary of Nepal have been encroached. There are disputes, conflicts, claim and counter-claims, and cross-border occupations in 71 spots along Nepal-India border line. These disputed areas have been computed as 60,662 hectares of land. During the last ten years period, disputed spots have been increased from 53 to 71 places and 60,000 to 60,662 hectares.

            There are conflicts on the border with China as well at the border of Dolakha district. There is also a controversy on the height of Mount Everest with China.

          We have to protect our national boundary ourselves. None of the countries will take care to preserve our border. We don’t have to blame our neighbors that our frontier areas have been encroached by them. This is due to our weakness and lethargic; and our border has been encroached. We ourselves must be alert and defend as necessary. We and our government are week, careless, pessimist and apathetic concerning our boundary of Nepal. So our border is being encroached time and often.

 14

          Nepali young generation must come forward to protect and preserve our boundary. All we have to create awareness and this message should be reached to the countries of the world. We have to build intellectual pressure to our government to talk to our neighboring countries for the peaceful solution of the border issues. In fact, this is the business of the State or head of the government. The civic society would have to raise and highlight the matters and provide suggestions to put pressure to the government authorities. Ultimately, border business must be tackled by the concerned authorities. If the State uses to raise the voice, the neighbors hear it and here comes the ways and means to resolve the outstanding border issues. But it is a matter of sorrowfulness that our government is apathetic to resolve the border issues with the neighboring countries. The government should not let encroach our territory. We have to be sensitive for even an inch of land. If one square kilometer of the territory is being encroached, hundreds of Nepali citizens inhabited on that portion of land, may become the alien.

 13

          At the end of speech, Buddhi Narayan Shrestha wished Greater Nepal weekly will always be able and active to create awareness and build pressure in terms of protection of the national boundary of Nepal. The honour and felicitation given to him by Greater Nepal Weekly has encouraged and enthusiasm to make further research study and publicize the factual accounts in the field of protection and preservation of national boundary of Nepal. Lastly, he thanked Greater Nepal Weekly family once again for offering him letter of felicitation.

          Ms. Jaleswori Shrestha, the other recipient of honor said she was motivated and inspired to write on the issue of women of Nepal visualizing their anxiety, harassment, trouble, pain and distress. The honor provided by Greater Nepal Weekly has added her responsibility to create literature in an energetic manner in future.

          Chief Guest of the program and Chairman of Nepal Press Council Borna Bahadur Karki congratulated Buddhi Narayan Shrestha on receiving honor from Greater Nepal Weekly, as Shrestha is creating awareness to the Nepali society on the matters of national boundary and its preservation. He also congratulated to two other fellows who received the honor. He said the whole press community should be united on the issue of nationality. He further said the movement of Greater Nepal raised by the Weekly is timely and appropriate in view of the protection of nationality and national feeling. This movement should be continued in the days to come as well.

 9-

          Chairman of the program and Editor/Publisher of Greater Nepal Weekly Surendra Dhakal highlighted the reasons to publish the Greater Nepal Weekly newspaper. He said that nationality of Nepal bas been entangled into grave and crucial danger. Boundary of Nepal has been encroached day by day and it has shrunken. But our political leaders are not serious on it. Rather they are becoming the broker agents of India to sit on the chair and continue their power to be remained in the government for long.

10

          He further said Greater Nepal Weekly newspaper has been published with an objective to create awareness and to save the nationality of Nepal and to get back the lost territory of Greater Nepal, as it was affected by the Treaty of Sugauli- 1816. Our well wishers have made a curiosity whether the newspaper will be continued or not in future. Editor Dhakal committed and assured to all that ‘Greater Nepal Weekly will not die till he is alive’ and future generation will carry it on.

          In the beginning of the program Managing Director of the newspaper Krishna Dulal welcomed all the guests and said- nationalism is going to be endangered and Greater Nepal Weekly has created public opinion on the matter of nationalism. He opined that the newspaper is transmitting the peoples’ view in an energetic manner and it should be reached to huge number of readers.

 11

            Columnist of the newspaper and Senior Journalist Dambar Giri expressed that Hong Kong, Macau and various other territories of the world have been returned back after hundreds of years. In this context, lost territories of Greater Nepal, including Darjeeling could be returned and taken back in future. He appreciated that Surendra Dhakal himself is engaged for the last twenty years in the movement of Greater Nepal.

          Another guest and Chairman of Federation of Nepalese Journalists Kathmandu Branch Govinda Chaulagain expressed his opinion that Greater Nepal Weekly has done Mission Journalism with an objective to save nationalism. Nepalese territory has been encroached and this act is not stopped. Nationality of Nepal is going to be endangered day after day. In such a situation the issue raised by the Greater Nepal Weekly is contextual and appreciable. He wished- may the future of the newspaper to raise the voice to regain the lost territory of Nepal be more powerful and very popular. He expressed all the best to the newspaper and recipients of Greater Nepal Honor, including Border Expert Buddhi Narayan Shrestha.

Are the Leaders Seeking Second Mahendra ?

                 नेताले दोस्रो महेन्द्र खोजेका हुन् ?

Blue Jacket

बुद्धिनारायण श्रेष्ठ

महेन्द्रलाई विश्वेश्वरप्रति झ्वाँक चलेजस्तै बाबुरामप्रति रामवरणलाई पनि झ्वाँक उठ्ने पो हो कि ! साँच्चै झ्वाँक चल्यो भने कतै दुवैजना गम्ल्याङ-गुम्लुङ हुने त होइनन् ?

राष्ट्रिय सहमतिको सरकार गठन गरी संकट समाधान खोज्ने उद्देश्यका निम्ति प्रमुख दलहरूबीच सहमति कायम गर्न राष्ट्रपतिले मंसिर ८ देखि दिएको नवौं पटकको समयसीमा माघ १ मा अन्त्य भयो । नौ पटकसम्म भकाभक म्याद थपदिंदा पनि प्रधानमन्त्रीको साझा उम्मेदवारमा नेताहरू समझदारीको विन्दुमा पुग्न नसकेपछि राष्ट्रपति थाकेर उनले प्रक्रियामात्रै जारी रहनेगरी म्याद थप्ने शृङखला अन्त्य गरे । प्रमुख दलहरूले सहमति जुटाउन नसकेपछि अब कति समयमात्र थप्दै जाने भन्ने मनसायअनुसार समयसीमा किटान नगरी सहमतीय सरकार निर्माण प्रक्रियालाई निरन्तरता दिइयो । यो प्रक्रिया कहिलेसम्म चालु रहने हो, स्वयम् राष्ट्रपति र प्रधानमन्त्रीलाई पनि थाहा छैन, नागरिक समाजलाई त यसबारे झन् के थाहापत्तो हुने हो र !

यहाँ जिज्ञासा उत्पन्न हुन्छ, के कारणले विद्यमान सरकार वैध भएन र किन नयाँ सरकारका लागि साझा सहमति गर्नुपर्‍यो ? राष्ट्रपतिद्वारा अन्तरिम संविधानको धारा ३८ -१) अनुसार राजनीतिक सहमतिको सरकार गठनका लागि मंसिर ८ गते आह्वान गरिएकोले र संविधानसभाको असामयिक अन्त्य गरिएपछि मुलुकमा विद्यमान राजनीतिक र संवैधानिक संकट निकासका लागि बाबुराम भट्टराई नेतृत्वको सरकार बहिर्गमन हुनुपर्ने र सहमतीय सरकार गठन हुनुपर्ने भएकोले वर्तमान सरकार मान्य नभएको देखिन्छ ।

नयाँ सरकार किन आवश्यक पर्‍यो भन्ने सम्बन्धमा व्यवस्थापिका संसद भंग भइसकेको र वैशाख महिनामा नयाँ निर्वाचन हुने घोषणा पनि भइसकेको हुँदा निर्वाचनका लागि सहमति जुटाउन र संवैधानिक निकायको रिक्तता पूर्ति गर्नका निम्ति पनि सहमति आवश्यक परेको देखिन आएको छ । वास्तवमा निर्वाचन गराउने निकाय निर्वाचन आयोगका र अख्तियार दुरुपयोग अनुसन्धान आयोगका सबै पदाधिकारी रिक्त भइसकेका छन् । विधिको साशन लागु गर्ने सर्वोच्च अदालतका धेरै अस्थायी न्यायाधीशहरूको म्याद पनि सकिएको छ । यसका लागि पनि सहमतीय सरकारकै खाँचो परेको छ ।

दलका नेताहरूले आपसी सहमति गर्ने भन्दै दुई महिना समय लिए, तर आपसी सहमतिमा पुग्न सकेनन् । चाँडो सहमतिमा पुगी राजनीतिक निकास दिन जनताले विभिन्न कोणबाट दबाब दिए । अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय समुदायले समेत छिटो सहमति जुटाउन गरेको आग्रहलाई शीर्ष नेताहरूले कुनै वास्ता नै गरेनन् । आफ्नै तालमा ताली बजाइरहे । यसको कारणचाहिं एकथरी नेतालाई सत्ता नभई नहुने र अर्काथरीलाई सत्ता छाड्नै नचाहने रोग लागेकोले दलहरूबीच द्वन्द्व उत्पन्न भएको छ । यसले मुलुकलाई थप संकटमा धकेलेको छ । यस बाहेक शीर्ष नेताहरूमध्ये कुनै एकले अन्य नेताहरूबाट विश्वास लिन सक्षम भएको सावित गर्न नसकेकोले र आफूले अरु नेतालाई विश्वास दिन पनि नसकेको हुँदा सहमतिको समस्या घुमाउने दहमा रुमलिइरहेको वस्तुजस्तो भएको छ । एक नेता अर्को नेतालाई तत्कालका लागि सर्वोपरी नेतृत्वदायी मान्न तयार छैनन् । नेताले यस्तो अवस्था सिर्जना गरेका हुनाले यहाँ भन्नुपर्ने अवस्था उत्पन्न भएको छ- नेताहरूले दोस्रो महेन्द्र खोजेका हुन् कि ?

Sketch

इतिहास अवलोकन गर्दा राजा महेन्द्र र प्रधानमन्त्री विश्वेश्वरको स्वार्थ बाझिएको हुनाले २०१७ साल पुस १ गतेको घटना घट्न गयो । विश्वेश्वर लगायत नेताहरूलाई जेलमा हालियो । विश्वेश्वरलाई कहिलेसम्म जेल सजाय दिइने हो भनी सञ्चारजगतद्वारा सोधिएको जवाफमा महेन्द्रले ‘आवश्यकभन्दा एकदिन पनि बढी राखिने छैन’ भनी जवाफ दिएका थिए । यहाँ उल्लेख गर्नुपर्ने नै हुन्छ कि महेन्द्रको कूटनीति र विश्वेश्वरको राजनीति हातेमालो गरी सँगसँगै अगाडि बढेको भए आज नेपाल लगभग दक्षिण कोरियाली विकासकै हाराहारीमा पुग्ने थियो होला । तर दुर्भाग्य यस्तो हुनसकेन । यस्तो हुन नसक्नाको कारणचाहिं विश्वेश्वरप्रसाद कोइरालाको व्यक्तित्व युरोपेली समाजवादी देशमा समेत पुगिसकेको थियो । फलस्वरुप ती देशमा हुने भएका विश्व समाजवादी सम्मेलनमा जवाहरलाल नेहरूलाई भन्दा विश्वेश्वर कोइरालालाई बढी निम्तो आउन थालिसकेको थियो ।

अर्कोतर्फ राजा महेन्द्रले पूर्व-पश्चिम राजमार्ग निर्माणको थालनी गरेका, नेपाललाई संयुक्त राष्ट्रसंघको सदस्यता दिलाएका, देशभित्र नेपाली रुपैयाँमा मात्र कारोबार सुरु गराएका र कोदारी राजमार्ग निर्माणका सन्दर्भमा चीन जोड्ने सडकबाट महेन्द्रले कम्युनिष्ट भित्र्याउन लागे भन्ने छिमेकीको भनाइमा ‘नेपालमा कम्युनिष्ट गाडी चढेर आउँदैन’ भन्न उनी बाध्य भएका थिए । यिनै परिप्रेक्ष्यमा नेपालको सरकार प्रमुख र राष्ट्र प्रमुखबीच मनोमालिन्यताको विजारोपन गर्न छिमेकी मुलुक उद्यत भएको होइन भन्न सकिँदैन । हाम्रा वर्तमान नेतावृन्दले यस्ता घटनाक्रमको मनन गर्नुपर्छ र त्यसबाट शिक्षा ग्रहण गर्न सक्नुपर्छ ।

विगतका घटनालाई हृदयंगम गर्दै देशको सर्वोत्तम हितका लागि नेताहरू मिलिजुली राजनीतिक गतिरोधको अन्त्यका लागि दलहरू सहमतिमा पुग्नुपर्छ । यस परिप्रेक्ष्यमा राष्ट्रपति र प्रधानमन्त्री दुवै अप्ठ्यारोमा परिसकेका छन् । राष्ट्रपतिले सहमतीय सरकारको आह्वान निरन्तर रूपले गरिरहेका छन् भने प्रधानमन्त्रीले पनि सहमति जुटाउन आफू प्रतिबद्ध रहेको पटक-पटक जनाएका छन् । तर परिणाम निक्लिएको छैन । यस्तो दुष्परिणामको दोष दुवैमा खनिन सक्छ ।

अन्तरिम संविधान- २०६३ पनि ‘बाँदरको पुच्छर, लौरो न हतियार’ भन्ने भनाइका रूपमा देखियो । संविधानले लौरोका रूपमा न कुनै नेताको टाउकोमा हिर्काउनसकेको देखियो, नत हतियारका रूपमा अवाञ्छित कसैलाई फायर गरेर -हटाएर) अर्कोलाई प्रतिस्थापन गर्न सक्ने देखियो । यो कस्तो प्रकारको संविधान निर्माण भएको रहेछ- व्यवस्थापिका संसदमा प्रधानमन्त्रीका लागि १७ पटक निर्वाचन गर्दा पनि निर्णयमा पुग्न नसक्ने र यस्तैगरी सहमतीय सरकारका लागि नवौं पटकको म्याद थप्दा पनि समाधानको उपाय केही बोल्न नसक्ने संविधान कस्तो हो ? समस्या परेपछि बाधा-अड्काउ फुकाउने प्वाल त हुनैपर्ने हो । यसैबाट अन्तरिम संविधान निर्माताहरू कत्तिको दूरदर्शी रहेछन् भन्ने पनि देखियो । जनताले उनीहरूलाई चिन्नुपर्ने समय आएको छ ।

यहाँ त सहमतीय प्रकरणमा ‘जोगी देख्दा भैंसी तर्सने र भैंसी देख्दा जोगी तर्सने’ उखान चरितार्थ भएको जस्तो देखियो । महेन्द्रलाई विश्वेश्वरप्रति झ्वाँक चलेजस्तै बाबुरामप्रति रामवरणलाई पनि झ्वाँक उठ्ने पो हो कि ! साँच्चै झ्वाँक चल्यो भने के हुने हो, थाहा छैन । कतै दुवैजना गम्ल्याङ-गुम्लुङ हुने त होइनन् ? यसै प्रसङ्गमा उपराष्ट्रपति परमानन्द झाले हालै सप्तरीको बसबलपुर गाविसमा ‘मुलुकको हितका लागि राष्ट्रपतिले आवश्यक पर्दा कानुन मिचेरै भए पनि अघि बढ्दै संविधानको धारा ३८ -२) अनुसारको सरकार गठन गर्नुपर्छ भन्ने कुरा बताइसक्नु भएको छ । यसबाट के बुझिन सक्छ भने उनले एकाध हप्ता राष्ट्रपति पदको कार्यवाहक पाए भने संविधानको उपधारालाई हतियारका रूपमा प्रयोग गरी गतिरोध अन्त्य गर्ने थिए । यद्यपि यो कुरा आफ्नै ठाउँमा छ ।

आजको संवेदनशील घडीमा नेताहरूले मनन गर्नुपर्ने कुरा के देखियो भने मुलुकमा भोलि कतैबाट ठूलो राजनीतिक विध्वंस हुँदैछ, त्यसकारण आजै हामी सबै एकजुट भई सहमतिमा पुगौं र देशलाई निकास दिऔं भनी निर्णयमा पुग्नुपर्‍यो । राजनीतिकमात्र होइन, आर्थिक विकासमा पनि ध्यान दिऔं । सहमति गर्न नसके दोस्रो महेन्द्रले हामी सबैलाई गाँज्नेछन् भनी नेतावृन्दले बेलैमा सोच्नुपर्‍यो । शीर्ष नेताहरूले नेपालको विकासलाई फेरि अर्को तीस वर्ष पछाडि नधकेल्नोस् । कृपया, दोस्रो महेन्द्र नखोज्नोस् । भावी पिढीले तपाइर्ँहरूलाई सराप्नेछन् । तपाइर्ँहरू सबै विलिन हुने काम नगर्नोस् । सहमतिमा छिट्टै पुगिहाल्नोस् ।

Nepal On Hire But not On Sale !

                      Nepal On Hire

But not On Sale !

 

1. Background

Nepal is naturally a beautiful Himalayan country. Himalayas are regarded as the most beautiful part of the earth. Himalaya is the King of Mountains. Nepal has tall mountains, more  than any other regions of the planet.

Nepal is a developing country of South Asia. It has a very slow economic progress in comparison to political changes within a period of last ten years. Politically, changes took place in a faster rate in Nepal from monarchy to democracy, people’s democracy and republican country. But so far as the space of economic development is concerned, it has the snail speed progress. It may be due to the personality conflicts of top leaders and between intra-party and inter-political party leaders. Each of them regard supreme leader himself.

A political leader is neither capable to gain support and confidence from other party leaders, nor he is ready to offer confidence to other leader. As a result, there is not a supreme leader or leader among leaders, who bears capability to obtain faith and confidence from other counterpart leaders. Those who holds the power and position, he is intended to earn money and material illegally. He takes benefits for himself and his family at first. Then he provides chances to collect fame and money to his nearest kith and kin. And then he prefers to provide legal and illegal strength to his political party workers. After that, he remembers the nation and national interest. At the same time, other political party leaders protest and make slogans and demonstration against the power holder, even the ruling leader makes some program of national interest. Even a small group of Constitutional Assembly members make slogan in the running Assembly meeting and they obstruct the session for their vested interest.

In such a fashion, the political leaders are like cats and dogs. They make so called ideological conflicts and quarrels each other all the time even in case of a trifle matter to pull down the position holder. They blame each other that his opponent has done nothing in the matter of national interest, sovereignty and integrity. All the leaders are power monger and hankering over money and materials from the government treasury. By any means, they want to hold power and remain in decision making level for a long time. But they do not have vision in favour of nation building and economic upliftment for the general people of the country.

In this gloomy situation, something has to be done for the betterment of common folk without hindering sovereignty and national integrity of Nepal. During this transition period, one of my friends opined that Nepal should be put ‘On Hire.’ But it is restricted to go ‘On Sale’. Is it really good for the benefit of the Nepali people to invite global competition to float ‘Nepal On Hire or Lease’ ? I assured him that I shall try my best. Nepal is my country- my pride.

2. Characteristics

Naturally beautiful Nepal has the following characteristics:

  1. Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest), the highest mountain in the world is located in Nepal.
  2. Lord Gautama Buddha, as revered as a symbol of peace across the world, was born in Nepal.
  3. World famous Sherpa mountain guides belong to Nepal.
  4. Nepal is the home of brave, honest and obedient Gorkha soldiers.
  5. Nepal is physically constructed with Himal, Mountain and Plain area.
  6. If someone drives 120 Kilometer south-north for ten hours, he experiences from sub-tropical summer climate to cold tundra type.
  7. Thirteen mountain peaks, higher than 8,000 meter falls on Nepali territory.
  8. Nepal has a diverse elevation from 59 meter to 8,850 meters above mean sea level.
  9. Nepal has 10,167 plant species (including medicinal and aromatic plants).
  10. It has over 650 species of birds and 167 species of animals.
  11. Approximately one million foreign tourists, mountaineers, expeditioners  and trekkers visit Nepal every year.
  12. Nepal is the country of amenable Yak & Yeti.
  13. Nepal has the potentiality of roughly 83,000 MW hydro-electric power generation.
  14. Nepal is the destination of adventure travel (like para-gliding, bunjy-jumping, sky-diving, mountain biking etc), selected by world famous National Geographic Adventure Magazine (17 March 2009).
  15. Nepal is going to be a human labour exporting country.
  16. Nepal has an identity of ‘Double Triangle shaped National Flag’ unique all over the world.

3. Global tender

It will not be a too bad idea to offer Nepal as ‘On Hire or Lease’ in some context. Recently, the cash-strapped Northern Mariana Islands, a US territory in the Western Pacific, has offered to lease land to China as long as it is not used for military purpose. Northern Marianas Governor Benigno Fitial made the offer during a US-China Governors Forum in Beijing which discussed potential investment and job creation opportunities. A self-governing commonwealth of the United States since 1976, the islands are in the grip of a severe budget crisis following the collapse of their garment industry. The Northern Marianas consists of 15 islands, with more than 90 percent of the population of 54,000 living on Saipan.

In this context, if a global notification is floated to put Nepal on hire or lease, what will be the terms and conditions ? My friend gave me a rough sketch of terms and reference (TOR) to convert Nepal into ‘New Nepal’ as Nepal is ‘On Hire or Lease’ for fifteen years with the following TOR (terms and conditions):

  1. Provision of twenty-four hours supply of drinking water and availability of electricity all over cities, towns and settlements.
  2. Connections of motor-ways to all major settlements.
  3. Railway line network to all district headquarters.
  4. Development of manufacturing industry to employ 4 million people.
  5. Hydro-electric power generation 10,000 MW.
  6. Construction of irrigation canal and channel 10,000 km in length.
  7. To make per capita income GDP equivalent to 3,000 Euro.
  8. Petroleum exploration and production shall be materialized in two spots.
  9. Make Nepal a bridge between India and China to foster Nepali economy.
  10. Create environment to make rule of law and end of impunity.
  11. Correct the mentality of working level people from political gossip to work as worship.
  12. Access to sea port shall be materialized in one more spot, in addition to present Calcutta port.
  13. Nepal-India border should be fenced with 180 exit and entry crossing points.
  14. Open border with India shall be regulated, whereas Chinese border shall be strengthened for the security purposes.

4. Conditions

  1. Priority will be given to European non-United Nations member for bidding.
  2. Partial proposal (bidding) will not be accepted in any circumstance.
  • For example, India may be interested to obtain ‘On Hire’ the southern plain area.
  • China may be interested to bid for northern Himal area.
  • Bangladesh may take interested on the middle mountainous area.
  • But it is purely a single package program of entire Nepal.
  • United States of America may be interested to bid for whole Nepal. It will be easy to America to know and explore the secrecy of Chinese development strategy from Nepal, adjoined to the Tibet. America may visualize anti-Chinese activity from the newly built high mountain Buddhist monastery through converted monks of northern Nepal.
    1. The successful bidder must deposit 10 Trillion Euro as an earnest money.
    2. At the end of 15 years period, ‘Developed Nepal’ should be handed over back to the elected Nepal government.
    3. Time period ‘On Hire’ shall not be extended. There shall not be any provision of variation order at any cost.
    4. The elected government shall verify the pace of development (achievement), as agreed in the TOR.
    5. If it has been achieved, the earnest money will be released with the deduction of 10 percent.
    6. If the achievement (as mentioned in the TOR) is not 100 percent, deposited amount of money will be confiscated.
    7. Bidding time starts from now for six months.
    8. All rights are reserved with Nepal Government, to whom Nepal shall be provided or not to be provided ‘On Hire’.
    9. If there are some controversies, International Court of Justice (ICJ) decision will be the final one.

 Let us see, who will bid for “Nepal On Hire (Lease), But not On Sale !”
