Madhes regiment



The Nepal Army is a national army, but its composition does not reflect this national character. Whatever reasons it might have been constrained by in the past, we should not now wait any longer in taking steps to make it more representative. The army has played an important role in the making of modern Nepal. Now, the responsibility of protecting Nepal's territorial integrity and sovereignty, as well as democracy, rests on the army's shoulders. For that reason, a madhesi regiment is essential. The Nepal Army is a professional and apolitical organisation and it does not need to wait until the reforms are instituted after elections to the constituent assembly. The madhes is demanding-reasonably-proportional representation in all the organs of the state. Political parties can calculate their gains and loses, but the army should remain be above this, and create a madhesi regiment right away.
