4 February, 1996

Right Honourable Prime Minister
Prime Minister’s Office,
Singha Darbar, Kathmandu

Sub: Memorandum

Sir,

 

It has been six years since the autocratic monarchical partyless Panchayat system was ended by the 1990 People’s Movement and a constitutional monarchical multiparty parliamentary system established. During this period, state control has been exercised by a tripartite interim government, a single-party government of the Nepali Congress, a minority government of UML and a present Nepali Congress-RPP-Sadbhavana coalition. That, instead of making progress, the situation of the country and the people is going downhill is evident from the fact that Nepal has slid to being the second poorest country in the world; people living below the absolute poverty line has gone up to 71 per cent; the number of unemployed has reached more than 10 per cent while the number of people who are semi-employed or in disguised employment has crossed 60 per cent; the country is on the verge of bankruptcy due to rising foreign loans and deficit trade; economic and cultural encroachment within the country by foreign, and especially Indian, expansionists is increasing by the day; the gap between the rich and the poor and between towns and villages is growing wider. On the other hand, parliamentary parties that have formed the government by various means have shown that they are more interested in remaining in power with the blessings of foreign imperialist and expansionist masters than in the welfare of the country and the people. This is clear from their blindly adopting so-called privatization and liberalization to fulfill the interests of all imperialists and from the recent ‘national consensus’ reached in handing over the rights over Nepal’s water resources to Indian expansionists. Since 6 April, 1992, the United People’s Front has been involved in various struggles to fulfill relevant demands related to nationalism, democracy and livelihood, either by itself or with others. But rather than fulfilling those demands, the governments formed at different times have violently suppressed the agitators and taken the lives of hundreds; the most recent example of this is the armed police operation in Rolpa a few months back. In this context, we would like to once again present to the current coalition government demands related to nationalism, democracy and livelihood, which have been raised in the past and many of which have become relevant in the present context.

 

Our demands

Concerning nationality

  1.   All discriminatory treaties, including the 1950 Nepal-India Treaty, should be abrogated.
  2.  The so-called Integrated Mahakali Treaty concluded on 29 January, 1996 should be repealed immediately, as it is designed to conceal the disastrous Tanakpur Treaty and allows Indian imperialist monopoly over Nepal’s water resources.
  3.  The open border between Nepal and India should be regulated, controlled and systematized. All vehicles with Indian licence plates should be banned from Nepal.
  4.  The Gurkha/Gorkha Recruitment Centres should be closed. Nepali citizens should be provided dignified employment in the country.
  5.  Nepali workers should be given priority in different sectors. A ‘work permit’ system should be strictly implemented if foreign workers are required in the country.
  6.  The domination of foreign capital in Nepali industries, business and finance should be stopped.
  7.  An appropriate customs policy should be devised and implemented so that economic development helps the nation become self-reliant.
  8.  The invasion of imperialist and colonial culture should be banned. Vulgar Hindi films, videos and magazines should be immediately outlawed.
  9.  The invasion of colonial and imperial elements in the name of NGOs and INGOs should be stopped.Concerning people’s democracy

     

  10. A new constitution should be drafted by representatives elected for the establishment of a people’s democratic system.
  11.  All special privileges of the king and the royal family should be abolished.
  12.  The army, the police and the bureaucracy should be completely under people’s control.
  13.  All repressive acts, including the Security Act, should be repealed.
  14.  Everyone arrested extra-judicially for political reasons or revenge in Rukum, Rolpa, Jajarkot, Gorkha, Kabhrc, Sindhupalchowk. Sindhuli, Dhanusa, Ramechhap, and so on, should be immediately released. All false cases should be immediately withdrawn.
  15.  The operation of armed police, repression and state-sponsored terror should be immediately stopped.
  16.  The whereabouts of citizens who disappeared in police custody at different times, namely Dilip Chaudhary, Bhuwan Thapa Magar, Prabhakar Subedi and others, should be investigated and those responsible brought to justice. The families of victims should be duly compensated.
  17.  All those killed during the People’s Movement should be declared martyrs. The families of the martyrs and those injured and deformed should be duly compensated, and the murderers brought to justice.
  18.  Nepal should be declared a secular nation.
  19.  Patriarchal exploitation and discrimination against women should be stopped. Daughters should be allowed access to paternal property.
  20.  All racial exploitation and suppression should be stopped. Where ethnic communities are in the majority, they should be allowed to form their own autonomous governments.
  21.  Discrimination against downtrodden and backward people should be stopped. The system of untouchability should be eliminated.
  22.  All languages and dialects should be given equal opportunities to prosper. The right to education in the mother tongue up to higher levels should be guaranteed.
  23.  The right to expression and freedom of press and publication should be guaranteed. The government mass media should be completely autonomous.
  24. Academic and professional freedom of scholars, writers, artists and cultural workers should be guaranteed.
  25. Regional discrimination between the hills and the tarai should be eliminated. Backward areas should be given regional autonomy. Rural and urban areas should be treated at par.
  26. Local bodies should be empowered and appropriately equipped.
  27. Land should be belong to ‘tenants’. Land under the control of the feudal system should be confiscated and distributed to the landless and the homeless.Concerning livelihood

     

  28. The property of middlemen and comprador capitalists should be confiscated and nationalized. Capital lying unproductive should be invested to promote industrialization.
  29.  Employment should be guaranteed for all. Until such time as employment can be arranged, an unemployment allowance should be provided.
  30. A minimum wage for workers in industries, agriculture and so on should be fixed and strictly implemented.
  31.  The homeless should be rehabilitated. No one should be ‘ relocated until alternative infrastructure is guaranteed.
  32.  Poor farmers should be exempt from loan repayments. Loans taken by small farmers from the Agricultural Development Bank should be written off. Appropriate provisions should be made to provide loans for small farmers.
  33.  Fertilizer and seeds should be easily available and at a cheap rate. Farmers should be provided with appropriate prices and markets for their produce.
  34.  People in flood and drought-affected areas should be provided with appropriate relief materials.
  35.  Free and scientific health services and education should be available to all. The commercialization of education should be stopped.
  36.  Inflation should be checked. Wages should be increased proportionate to inflation. Essential goods should be cheaply and easily available to everyone.
  37.  Drinking water, roads and electricity should be provided to all villagers.
  38.  Domestic and cottage industries should be protected and promoted.
  39.  Corruption, smuggling, black marketing, bribery, and the practices of middlemen and so on should be eliminated.
  40.  Orphans, the disabled, the elderly and children should be duly honoured and protected.

 

We would like to request the present coalition government to immediately initiate steps to fulfill these demands which are inextricably linked with the Nepali nation and the life of the people. If there are no positive indications towards this from the government by 17 February, 1996, we would like to inform you that we will be forced to adopt the path of armed struggle against the existing state power.

 

Thank you.

 

Dr Baburam Bhattarai
Chairman
Central Committee, United People’s Front, Nepal
