Government signed Peace Accord with CK Raut

Kathmandu: Government of Nepal and Free Madhesh Movement have come to agree for peaceful negotiation. From the government’s side, minister for home affairs Rambahadur Thapa ‘Badal’ and from Free Madhesh Movement, its head Chandrakanta Raut had signed the agreement.  They have signed the 11-point accord on ending politics of violence and movements based on ethnic, regional and racial issues.  

Chandrakant Raut aka C K Raut put his power of sentimental oratory right after the signing session was over. He highlighted the significance of peaceful politics. He added, “We, the Nepalese, are the offspring of Lord Buddha. Our blood is replete with peace and harmony.  We must also acknowledge the message of peace and non-violence advocated by Gandhi.” He said that he was arrested more than 2 dozen times.

He had got injured in Morang and Jhapa protests. He expressed his strong gratefulness to the senior leaders of different political parties in the country. The safe landing was, as he mentioned, the result of hard work of senior leaders, human rightists, social workers, lawmakers and academics of Nepal. 

He reiterated that he and his political organization always took the peaceful demonstrations as the tool to put the deferring stands. The respect to democratic procedures and loves towards peace-loving ordinary citizens of the country were the core concerns of his party.  He said,  “We are peace loving. We could not avoid the Lord Buddha’s teachings even though the state applied brutal force against the protests he had led in various places across the nation.  

He put that he has always put the country first. The installation of peace and prosperity is important for over all development of the nation. 

The Cambridge educated scholar charmed the audience in the City Hall in the afternoon of early March with his witty, parabolic and rhetorical grandeur. However, he was quite economic in his statements.  

As he was speaking, he was describing the current Nepalese socio-economic discordance. He threw some light on how the geographical variations of Nepal have kept itself worthy of respect from all around the world. He looked sincere in cultivating inter-regional as well as inter-ethnic care too.  The disasters in the mountains had always caused pain in the hearts of the plain dwellers.

The people in Terai underwent fasting in order to collect the food for donation to those who had suffered massive earthquake in 2015.  The strength of Nepal lied in ethnic diversity and cultural miscellany.  

He alarmed that the Free Madhesh Movement was about to take a violent step. He wanted to have a dialogue for peace and negotiations.  He continued that dialogues are the only means that would shape the peace deal. He appreciated the role of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli for the invaluable role and plausible measures to make the positive consequences happen.

He took some time to hail the leaders of the nation for their responsibilities to bring the country to the present situation. The constitution of the nation has offered so much for the people of varied socio-political, regional and cultural diversifications which are the real character of our nation.

He mentioned CPN Chair Prachanda, former NC President Shushil Koirala, Naya Shakti Coordinator Dr. Baburam Bhattarai among others.  He concluded his say with the there was no space for violence and extremism in democracy.
