Maoist Center is anti-democratic, anti-federalist: RJP
Rastriya Janata Party Nepal has accused CPN (Maoist Center) of being an anti-democratic and anti-federalist party.
RJP's election manifesto for the upcoming third phase of local polls made public on Thursday has severely criticized Maoist Center calling it a party that does not believe in a democratic system. "Maoist Center is directed by the principle of capturing the state using force," RJP has accused in the section about the party's views about other parties.
"The main character of Maoist Center is anti-federalist," the manifesto adds and holds the party responsible for murder of 'Martyr Ramesh Mahato and 52 Madhesi martyrs during the Madhes movement.'
Member of the chairman council of RJP Rajendra Mahato, however, stated that Maoist party cannot be called undemocratic, and clarified that his party does not support or oppose any other party.
RJP, in its manifesto, has accused CPN-UML of having an inconsistent character, and being ungenerous toward Madhes and against federalism and inclusiveness. It has also accused Nepali Congress (NC) of not being committed to inclusive democracy and friendly toward Madhes despite being a democratic party.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

The regional integration initiatives & Nepal
For the small landlocked economies, such as Nepal, regional integration is more of a necessity than a policy option. The ideal way forward for Nepal to gain most out of the economic integration would be to identify the key areas in which Nepal could contribute and facilitate the promotion of those sectors.

Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
