Appoint Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar as the 1st President of Nepal!

A Petition to Appoint Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar as the 1st President of Nepal!

Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar
Outline of the Petition
This petition draws the genuine attention of those who concerned including the Government of Nepal, all political parties and CA members of Nepal to appoint Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar, as the 1st President of Nepal as we believe only a non-politically aligned civil society leader can guide good governance to write an impartial constitution acceptable to all Nepalese.

The Petition
Nepal is not a country of one group or one party. It is a country of Nepalese made up of diverse nationalities, having their own distinguished languages and religions. Panchayat system of royal regime of Shah dynasty imposed “one country, one nation, one language and one religion” of a particular group on all nationalities to the extent millions of indigenous people never got the chance of learning through their own mother-tongue. Except very few, all government jobs went to only a particular cast people. It was this injustice, unequal, unfair treatment that civil leaders like Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar rose against. He has dedicated all his life for the liberation of Nepalese people from the autocratic rule of Shah dynasty and its henchmen-filled-Panchayeti governments, which ruled Nepal with iron hand until the 2nd people’s power defeated the ex-king Gyanendra in April 2006.

Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar started fighting for people’s freedom since 1970s. He went to jail so many times for demanding multi-party political system for all, he went to jail for asking legitimate right to be educated in mother tongues for all diverse nationalities of Nepal.

He was instrumental in facilitating peace talks with the Maoists and ending the decade-long bloody conflict. He intervened to bring a peaceful settlement parleying between the Maoists in the jungles and the government leaders leaning in the couches of comfort. Therefore, he and his team of civil society leaders helped brought the present partial peace in Nepal.

We believe that an impartial leader should guide the new CA members to write an impartial and practical constitution to guide good governance for the people to enjoy the peace and prosperity. We are very grateful to Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, his team, UML leadership, Maoist leadership to have agreed to choose ballet against bullet. But we are sure all these genuine leaders are quite aware what role Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar and his civil society team played. If not for the trouble taken by Dr. Tuladhar and his fellow civil society leaders, none of us can imagined what would have happened to us today.

Our Appeal
Therefore, we appeal the NCP/Maoist, NC, UML leadership to nominate Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar to be the 1st President of this country and the worthy members of Constituent Assembly to support to his appointment as the 1st President of Nepal, to guide good governance of Nepal under his impartial and clean statesmanship.

We also appeal to the Respected, Governments of India, China, Japan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka in South Asia and all friendly government and people of the world through the Secretary General of the United Nations to convince the parties in Nepal to appoint this genuine leader to seek peace and prosperity for Nepal because he is the best leader to guide an impartial constitution for New Nepal.

We also request the mass media, online news portals to give fair and impartial publicity to this genuine appeal for the benefit of all Nepalese people.

Needless to remind our fellow Nepalese civil society members, individuals and associations to support this appeal to appoint Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar as the 1st President of Nepal, yet appreciate whatever small you can do to reach this appeal to the three and other parties of CA members and help our appeal to succeed. You are all assured our fullest support in return when in need. Friends in need are friends indeed!

Hence this is the time to appoint Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar the 1st President of Nepal!

In solidarity to build a Fair New Nepal under a civil leader as the First President of Nepal!

    I think it’s great idea that Padma Ratna Tuladhar be the first president of Nepal. I think it’s a good reward for him to his lifetime devotion and contribution to the Nepal and Civil society.

  18. I whole heartedly Support him as a best candidate for this transitional period. His contribution in bringing the Mao insurgent in round table is the result we are seeing today. He deserves this position and give him chance in honor of his dedication in peace process of‘Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. He is only the Person who is very much popular among all the Political parties and Nepalese as well.

  19. K L Maharjan

    I think Padma Ratna Tuladhar is the just perfect person for the job. He has dedicated his life for the cause of mankind; human rights, freedom of speech, freedom of belief, fight against all kinds of discrimination, language, ethnicity, caste, class, culture and region and totalitarian authority. He is able to fulfil the duty, bring solidarity in Nepal, rightly hold its soveirgnity and represent Nepal with unity among the diversity. Hope concerneds are working hard towards it. Heartfelt wishes for the success.

  21. I see no other personality than Padma Ratna, so deserving and elegible to serve Nepal as its first President. His contribution in the whole process (beginning from Panchayat Era when Nepalese were so scared to spell a single word against the regime) is well known to all. Had not been him leading opposition to Panchayat from within the system, departure of Monarchy may not have happened so soon.

  22. Binod Saymi(Aala)

    Dr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar is the best for first president. He deserve for it after contributing his whole life for Nepal and it’s people and arising voice of equality in any respect even in worse condition of the country.

    Nepal does not have only political trouble but it has discrimination between Language, Religion and Ethnic group. Since he is one of the good leader of Newar and NepalBhasa he can understand those problem and pains which hardly other political(non political) leaders can understand. These problems need to be addressed in New Nepal.

  23. Raju Maharjan

    No one is compared to Mr. Padma Ratna Tuladhar for the first President of Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal.

  24. This is the time to make a difference and bring about a change. Let’s join hands to support Dr. Tuladhar as a candidate for the President of Nepal.

  25. Tribhuvan Tuladhar

    Dr. Padma R. Tuladhar is in the unique position to deserve the appointment to the First President of Nepal. I whole heartedly support this notion not because he is from the newah community as I am, but because, time and again, his work, dedication and thinking goes beyond ethnic, language and religious lines and he fought from early days of this movement to bring true democracy and peace to Nepal. He has not been given much credit as he deserves. It’s time, Now we can!

    जातियताको आधारमा कसैलाई President चुन्ने हो भने यो गलत हो!!!
    – धन बहादुर तामाङ

    धन बहादुर जि,
    बहुजाति, बहु साँस्कृतिक, बहु धार्मिक, बहुभाषिक नेपाली जनता माथि, हिजोपनि (ठुलो भनिने) जातीयताको आधारमै, एक दुइ (बलियो भनिने) समुहले नै शासन गरेर आयो। नेपालको राज्य प्रमुख, प्रधान मन्त्रि, मन्त्रिहरु लगायत प्रशासन क्षेत्रको सबै पदविमा, त्यहि जातिको राज थियो। बहुजाति नेपालीले आफ्नो जीवनको बलिदान दिएर गरेको जनआन्दोलनको उद्देष्यनै एक शासक, एक जाति, एक धर्म, एक भाषाले अरु जातिलाइ गरी आएका अन्याय, अत्याचार, दवाब र शोषणको विरुद्ध हो भन्ने सत्यलाइ बिर्सेर, अहिले बनिने भनिने नयाँ नेपालको शासन पनि, त्यही जातिको समूहलेनै गरिने भइरहेको छ।

    अहिलेको नेपालको यो शान्ति वातावरणको उपलब्धि राजनैतिक पार्टि कार्यकर्ताहरुको मात्र नभई, नागरिक समाज, आदिवासी, जनजाति, महिला ईत्यादी तमाम नेपाली जनताको अमूल्य देन बाट बनेको वातावरण हो। संसारमा President चुन्ने कयौँ तरिका छ। तर जनतालाई स्वीकार हुने दुइवटा तरिका छ। १) राजनैतिक पार्टिको नेता राष्ट्रपति बन्न चाहन्छ भने राष्ट्रपति चुनावमा जितेर आएको हुन्छ। २) सहमतिबाट चुनिने राष्ट्रपति राजनैतिक पार्टि भन्दा बाहिरको बहुमान्य ब्यक्ति हुन्छ। अहिलेको नेपालको संविधान अनुसार सहमतिको राष्ट्पति चुनिने भनिए पनि, मात्र एकदुइ पक्षको सहमति बाट राष्ट्रपति चुनिने भएको छ। त्यसो नभइ डा पद्म रत्न तुलाधर जस्ता आफ्नो जातिको उन्नतिको साथसाथै तमाम नेपाली जनजाति वर्गको उत्थानमा लडेका बहुमान्य नेपाली नेतालाइ राष्ट्पति चुनेमा, १) बहुजातीय नेपालीको भलो हुने, सबैलाइ स्वीकार योग्य संविधान बनिने छ। २) स्वीजरलन्डमा जस्तै पालो पालो गरी, प्रत्येक जाती, समूहको प्रतिनिधिलाइ राष्ट्पति लगायत आफ्नो देसको जिम्मेवारी बन्ने महान कार्यमा टेवा पुर्याउने छ, त्यसै बाट तपाई हामि सबैलाई हौसला पाईनेछ। – The Newah
