Fifteen years after the signing of the peace agreement in Nepal, the dream of economic prosperity is still unfulfilled


KATHMANDU:- Today marks the 15th anniversary of the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between the Maoists and the government. The Comprehensive Peace Agreement was signed between the then rebel Maoists and the government on December 20, 2006. The agreement was a historic success in ending more than ten years of conflict in Nepal.

The agreement was signed by Girija Prasad Koirala on behalf of the government and Prachanda on behalf of the CPN-Maoist. The agreement paved the way for the then Maoists to enter peaceful politics and participate in the government. After the peace agreement, important work of constitution drafting has been completed from the army integration and the Constituent Assembly, the republic has moved towards stability in the country and federalism has been implemented.

However, the dream of transitional justice and economic prosperity has not yet come true. Especially after the new constitution was drafted, the people expected the door of economic prosperity to open. However, with leaders unable to manage change, some problems remain.

As mentioned in the peace agreement, the main tasks such as ending the conflict, drafting the constitution through the election of the Constituent Assembly, declaring a republic and managing the Maoist combatants have been completed. Victims of serious human rights violations by the state and insurgents during the conflict have yet to receive justice.

The state has not yet been able to provide justice to the victims of disappearances, extrajudicial killings, torture and sexual violence. More than 2,500 Maoist fighters have gone missing. No decision has been made about them.
