No Constitution Amendment Under External Pressure

Posted by Anup Baral September 6th, 2016 : CPN-UML would not agree to amend Nepal's new constitution under pressure from any "external force," former prime minister and party chairman KP Sharma Oli said today. "Though constitution is a dynamic document and can be amended as per needs of the time, why do we need it now?" Mr Oli said. "The CPN-UML would not agree to amend the Constitution under pressure of any external force," Mr Oli said without naming any country. In the past, KP Oli has alleged that India was behind the months-long agitation by Madhesis demanding amendments to the constitution including redrawing of the country's federal provinces. He said the amendment to the constitution should not be done against democracy and national interests, adding the statute could not be amended just to fulfill vested interests of some "political groups".
At this time, both the government and the agitating parties did not have any concrete logic behind their agenda for the constitution amendment, he said. KP Oli had resigned in July, bringing an abrupt end to his nine-month-old government that struggled with the task of post-earthquake reconstruction and crippling protests by the Madhesis.

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
