Interview with Senior left Democratic leader
Lok Krishna Bhattrai – Chairman of “Astaja Abhiyan” Nepal
What do you feel about the Country’s situation?
We should be positive, the situation of the country is normal . The new constitution is on the way to its endorsement. And I think there should be election process of three tire & federal republic. The parties should come in national reconciliation.
But regional parties-like Madhesi Morcha is not coming in election unless two state in Terai, So is it possible?
Madhesi friends should come in the unity with pahadi & Himali people. They should realize it. Our state should be related with our two Neighbour China in the North & India in the South. So at this time, of the first constitute assemblies, I have propose 3 federal province from North to South naming Koshi-Gandaki-Karnali in their riverside region and 19 sub province as Kirat, Kochila(Birat), Mithila, Bhojpura, Abadh, Tamu, Gandaki, Magrat, Lumbini, Khosan, Mahakali & Karnali etc. That can represent the aspiration of people’s demand in their identity & federation of 3 region can conduct economically viably. So to amend the constitution, 3 major parties & Madheshbadi parties should compromise in this agenda. That can help to build the nation soon.
Now you are conducting the movement to save the nature-i.e. Astaja Abhiyan- what activities of this organization doing nowadays by this movement ?
Our movement is prevailing now in 65 district of the country. Now we are going to build the movements to frame the organization in remaining district soon.
