I am not worried about the constitution, I am worried more about the state of crisis that the country faces today, said Gyanendra shah.
Dahal said his leadership would give impetus to the implementation of the constitution, post-earthquake reconstruction and national unity.
The UN and other diplomatic missions and donor agencies have at times played the role of activista or catalyst role in Nepal politics, but whether the government is justified in the delay in welcoming the new resident commissioner is something that the government has not addressed publicly.
In 50 years, he has faced conviction and even completed a life term in jail for killing the 'class enemy' in eastern Nepal during the 70s.
The Federal Alliance that has the UDMF and other two dozen parties and ethic groups began their street protest aimed at paralysing the entire secretariat including that of the Prime Minister's office since Sunday.
Nepal's neighbour, and especially its MEA and RAW bureaucracy who together worked on the mediation and the subsequent political developments along with the Nepali actors, were seen as a 'patron' of democracy in Nepal.
Deep Kumar Upadhyay had refused to resign despite the government reportedly ordering his recall. He is now likely to leave Delhi on Wednesday.
The decision to scrap president's visit to Delhi, along with the recall of Ambassador Upadhyay, clearly indicate that Oli is upset with India.
The government will make the necessary amendments to the laws for speedy implementation of transitional justice within the next 15 days.
The Nepali Congress, visibly disappointed, is now likely to adopt an aggressive stand, including serving a no-confidence motion alleging a “government black-marketer gang-up”.
The change in stance came as a shot in the arm for Oli who later announced in Parliament that “what happened today was designed in Nepal”, a dig at the Nepali Congress and Madhesi Morcha move to “wreck the government”.
The Maoists said they were waiting for the response from Oli before withdrawing their ministers from the coalition.
Dixit, who also holds the position of the chairman of a transport cooperative board had been arrested on April 22 by the CIAA for investigation into ‘certain irregularities’ after he refused to appear before it.
Dixit had led a street campaign to stop Lokman Singh Karki from being appointed the CIAA chief, calling him “corrupt and unfit” on grounds that a judicial commission had found him guilty.
With little done towards rehabilitation and reconstruction through the year, Bhandari’s and Oli's presence at the anniversary events hardly injects hope among the people in general, and the victims in particular.
Delhi’s Nepal script, written in 2006, has now gone completely wrong
The Maoists had earlier demanded that the TRC be given powers to grant general amnesty had been turned down by the Supreme Court.
That’s Oli’s achievement in China, allowing India an opening
Yet, six months after he assumed office, the ground under his feet is slipping, notwithstanding the red carpet awaiting him in China.
Despite Oli’s claim that he went to Delhi with no list and came back having totally repaired the relationship, the trip is being scrutinised within the governing coalition and by the opposition, with usual suspicions of “secret deals” in the air.
Prince Harry will meet President Bidya Devi Bhandari as well as people affected by the last year's earthquake to "learn about efforts being made to restore buildings of historic significance and to assist in disaster preparedness".

Nepal PM Oli begins six-day visit today, will lead 46-member delegation
KP Oli, after series of barbed comments against India, will embark on six-day visit to India.
Responding to parliamentary debate on his visit and agenda, Oli said the committee will be constituted before he sets out, and it will give its recommendations within the next three months.
The lifting of the ‘blockade’ was not officially announced - its imposition on September 20 which coincided with India’s curt response to the promulgation of Nepal’s new Constitution had also been without fanfare.
Sushil Koirala was suffering from a chronic respiratory problem and was also receiving treatment for "tongue cancer".
Official sources said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had reached out to all major political parties to ensure that the delegation has leaders from the opposition as well.
Sushil Koirala spent nearly 11 years in India in exile from 1968 and always had close links with Indian politicians, mainly the socialists.
Oli, who is now visiting New Delhi, has invitations from both the prime ministers of India and China.
The announcement to end the border blockade comes ahead of Prime Minister K P Oli's trip to India on February 19, the first overseas visit of the new Nepalese premier.
PM Oli has been lucky, but his political survival looks uncertain

Bhattarai began his politics parallel to his student life, first in Chandigarh and then at JNU in the decade between the early 70s and the early 80s, as a human rights activist.
Out of 75 districts, administrative units in the country, 22 fall in Tarai and the rest in the Hill and Mountain.
Eyewitness account said the casualty figure might go higher as “no final and authentic version” has come out yet. One of the persons killed is a woman, police confirmed.
