-Madhukar Adhikari  Washington, D.C., March 11 (RSS): Two idols dating back around 800 years which were stolen from Nepal and taken to the United States of America will be repatriated, according to an agreement between officials of both Nepal and USA.

The idol of the Hindu God Umamaheshwor had been taken away from the Patan-based Umamaheshwor Temple and the second one is the idol of Gautam Buddha. On the occasion, Consul General Marasini thanked the Museum for its efforts in returning the idols to Nepal. The Office of Consulate General in New York is preparing to send the idols back home following a due process within coming April, said Marasini. ...

NC's election debacle is due to some people's non-cooperation: leader Singh

Kathmandu, Dec 15/ Nepali Congress leader Prakash Man Singh has said it is sad indeed that the Nepali Congress, a party that has struggled long for democracy, has floundered in the elections. He said this while addressing the 'get-together and thanksgiving' programme organized by the Nepali Congress Kathmandu constituency number 1 committee at Ananda Events here today.  "It is sad that the expected election results could not come in favor of a party that carries with it a history of struggle and public trust. A party that has provided leadership in every movement waged in the country has lost the elections and the time has now come to correct the shortcomings in the party and make it the ace party in the coming elections," he said.  Stating that the party faced the debacle in the election due to the people within the party itself, he called for an end to what he called the tendency of 'not cooperating to the party at times of need while carrying the party's bag'. He also said the election results for the Nepali Congress even in Kathmandu were not satisfactory.  Singh has been elected the member of the House of Representatives from Kathmandu constituency-1. On the occasion, he also committed to always working for the development of his constituency. Leader Singh thanked the people from his constituency for electing him.  He said the Nepali Congress would play the role of a responsible opposition in the parliament....

Legal experts divided over National Assembly formation

Kathmandu, Dec 15/ Legal experts have come up with differing views whether or not the government can be formed prior to the formation of the National Assembly. At a face-to-face programme organized here today by Reporters' Club Nepal, Nepal Bar Association Chairperson Sher Bahadur KC claimed that the new government could not be formed without constituting the National Assembly.  There is no alternative to the endorsement of the ordinance presented to the President for the formation of the National Assembly at the earliest, he said, adding that the government could not be formed when the President put the ordinance on hold. However, constitution expert Dr. Bhimarjun Acharya said that the new government could come into existence without formation of the National Assembly but the House of Representatives is necessary for this. Dr. Acharya noted that he was in favor of Single Transferable Votes System.  Another constitution expert Dr. Chandra Kanta Gyawali said the government formation cannot be materialized prior to the formation of the national assembly.  Though Prime Minister can be chosen even in absence of the national assembly, the inclusive Council of Ministers of the federal parliament could not be constituted.

Immigration in USA

flag.png
America’s immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers and there are 11 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country. The President’s plan builds a smart, effective immigration system that continues efforts to secure our borders and cracks down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants. It’s a plan that requires anyone who’s undocumented to get right with the law by paying their taxes and a penalty, learning English, and undergoing background checks before they can be eligible to earn citizenship. It requires every business and every worker to play by the same set of rules. There are four principles to the President’s common sense proposal: 1. Continuing to Strengthen Border Security The President’s Proposal President Obama has doubled the number of Border Patrol agents and today border security is stronger than it has ever been. But there is more work to do. The President’s proposal gives law enforcement the tools they need to make our communities safer from crime. And by enhancing our infrastructure and technology, the President’s proposal continues to strengthen our ability to remove criminals and apprehend and prosecute threats to our national security. Strengthen border security and infrastructure. The President’s proposal strengthens and improves infrastructure at ports of entry, facilitates public-private...
