Size of New Nepal’s Federal States – Mockery of the Century

Yen (Kathmandu), Nepal Mandala – The Constituent Assembly (CA) Committee on State Restructuring and Distribution of State Powers has chosen the 14-state model out of two alternative models proposed by a sub-committee last week through voting, yesterday evening. It is learnt that the decision was taken by the CA Committee after 24 members voted for and 19 against. 15 CA members including those from Nepali Congress (NC) voted for the six-state model, an alternative to the 14 states model and demanded that both the proposals be taken to the CA, which has the final say.

However, looking at the sizes of the proposed states, one can’t help finding the proposal to be the mockery of the 21st century. Take a good look at the size of Nepal Mandala Newah state, which is the single most original source for the modern Nepal and its culture that built a sub-civilization in South Asia since the 7th century AD. You can imagine the plight of the Newah community, who has contributed to build this nation for centuries. This is the state of Newah State!

  1. There shuld be technical logic to divided the state. The population density, access to outlet, natural resources, infrastructure etc. In allocated Newa state the population density is more than 1000, all the land has already used in construction of houses, no source of water even the drinking water is not available. Its standard deviation of population density is larger than 400. There is no oput let linkages and land locked. Therefore in this current geographical area the state can not survive for long time. Why huge part of Newa area divided and added to Tamsaling. It is planned attack to the Newa soul!!! We strongly demand that the areas where there is more than 20% people are Newas must alolocate in Newa Pradesh/Newa Mandal. I want to ask all the Newars please think critically and stand against it!!!! Otherwise we will have to suffer for ever!!!

  2. Our logic must be to re-establish Nepal mandal before unification. It does not matter if there is Newar mojority or not. Our strategy must be for it. I f we want to establish jus Newar state where there is majority now will not me majority in future. It will be be more narrow in future. this is wrong strategy. We must claim for Nepal Mandal to re-establish. Loot at UK. There is Scottland Wales and Northern Ireland. It is frontier as before unification. It does not matter if there is English people live in Wales, Scottland and Northern Ireland. We must have our state must be as before unification.
    Dey Daboo must claim for it and it must be our vision. Thanks.

    It seemed very ridiculous for the Newah Rajya area. If this is the final then there will a non ending state war between the newars and non-newars.

  5. This is what was given by “our” venerable leaders. Hitman Shakya and Dr Mangal Siddhi Manandhar are some to name. We must do something to falicitate them for their great job @@@@@@
