MPs in Nepal endorse historic proclamation – King’s power curbed

This is truly a historic moment for Nepal and Nepalese people. The proposal that was unanimously passed by The House of Representatives today brings army under the parliament, King will have to pay tax and Nepal becomes a Secular Country. This is a great occasion to celebrate but we always need to remember that the main problem is still there to be solved. MAOISTS! This is a step towards right direction and I hope the leaders will continue to work as per peoples aspirations. If they don’t perform, people will surely punish them. They didn’t spare a King so, why would they leave corrupt leaders?
