Congratulations and Good Wishes to the People of Nepal

The CPI(ML) congratulates the people of Nepal for having adopted a secular democratic Constitution. We honour the many heroic citizens of Nepal who struggled and sacrificed their lives in the struggle against a feudal monarchy. The Constitution adopted by Nepal today is a tribute to that remarkable republican movement spanning several decades.

The CPI(ML) condemns the arrogant Big Brotherly attempts by the Modi Government to interfere in Nepal’s sovereign process of framing their Constitution and tacitly foment unrest in Nepal. The sinister attempts of India’s ruling party to pressurize Nepal to opt for a Hindu Nation rather than a secular republic – such as the letter written by BJP MP Adityanath to Nepal’s leaders demanding that Nepal declare itself a Hindu Rashtra, ban cow slaughter and conversion – are also condemnable.

CPI(ML) wishes the people of Nepal well as they embark on this new secular democratic republican journey.
