Gyanendra ready to obey people `if monarchy restored`
Kathmandu: Nepal`s dethroned king
Gyanendra remains concerned over the instability in the country, and is ready to obey the people "if they choose to restore the monarchy".
Nepal has struggled to firm up its post-royal
democratic experiment. Gyanendra was worried over the
instability in the country as the Maoists threatened to launch
a "decisive fight" to form a government under its leadership.
In an interview to a Nepali weekly, the former king
expressed his uneasiness at the political situation and his
duties towards the nation and the people. "We should come out
of this transitional period as soon as possible," Gyanendra
Asked about his role in the current political
scenario, he put the onus on the people, who were "supreme".
"I quit the Royal Palace as per the wishes of the
people. It is the choice of the Nepali people whether to
reinstate the monarchy or not," Gyanendra said when asked
whether he was hopeful of the revival of the 240-year old
institution that was abolished last May.
"The People will themselves decide over the fate of
the monarchy and will also chart out the role and the form in
which they want to see the monarchy," he said in an interview
to the Nepali Janbhawana Weekly.
"If the people so wish, nothing is impossible," the
former king was quoted as saying by the Telegraph Nepal online
in a report based on the interview to the Nepali Weekly. "Who
had thought that the monarchy would be sidelined in such an
easy manner as it was done?"
