  FEDERALISM DEBATE No midpoint in the Far West  
  BY DIL BAHADUR CHHATYAL | DHANGADI  
 
Now, as the country is once again waiting for a new Constitution through the second CA, the agitators seem to get back to the form.

On the eve of the dissolution of the first Constituent Assembly (CA), a month-long agitation with the clashing demand for an ‘undivided far west’ and a ‘separate Tharuhat state’ had sent tremors throughout the country. Both parties were compelled to cool down as the CA itself that was supposed to address their demand in the statute no more existed. Now, as the country is once again waiting for a new Constitution through the second CA, the agitators seem to get back to the form. Both sides have been ruling out any possibility of compromise.

“Our 32-dayagitation had saved the country from division. Any move that would divide the far west can’t be acceptable,” said Gopal Deuba, coordinator of the Undivided Far-West Struggle Committee. “If they go for federalism, dividing the far west, we’ll intensify our protest,” he added.
