Purushottam Dhakal, VIRGINIA, USA: A historic Nepal resolution has been introduced in United States House of Representatives calling for a democratically elected government for the people of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal.
The bill sponsored by Congressman Rick Larsen (Washington) was co-sponsored by Congressman Dennis Heck (Washington), Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (Washington), Congressman Derek Kilmer (Washington), Congressman Ami Bera (California), Congressman Jared Polis (Colorado) and Congressman Ander Crenshaw (Florida)
This became possible thanks to the tireless efforts from Candidate of US Congress Darshan Rauniyar. Since returning to US after his recent trip to Nepal, Rauniyar has been educating the members of the US Congress about Nepal’s situations and the plight of Nepalese people in Nepal and around the world and to protect the people of Nepal and strive to provide basic needs such as clean air, water and electricity, food, shelter, and health care.
This is a historic moment for Nepal and Nepalese around the world. Darshan believes it is essential that all Nepalis come together now to put Nepal on the right course. Whether living abroad or at home, Nepalis need to speak out with one voice for a decisive resolution of the fitful process of the restoration of a full and functional democracy.
The bill was introduced as the opinion of the US carries a lot of weight in Nepal. The bill call for democratic government, rule of law, law and order situation in the country which guarantees universal human rights including freedom of speech, the press, assembly, religion, and due process under the law.
“The US Senate welcomes the free and fair elections for the people of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal; encourages the use of all efforts, energies, and diligence to help the people of Nepal to effectively participate in the electoral process; joins with the international community in providing the resources necessary to hold free, fair, and timely elections, facilitate a peaceful transition of power, and establish a government that will protect the rights of the people; and supports the efforts of the people of Nepal to maintain self-determination for their general welfare and the welfare of future generations,” the resolution reads.
