"The king's speech in Nepalganj last week has opened doors for dialogue between the monarch and the political parties. I say this because both the king and the parties have expressed similar concerns for the betterment of Nepalis and for the future of democracy. This proves the two sides can come to a meeting point, just like the king said in his speech. The king pointed out issues like corruption as hindrances to good governance, constructive training for youths and a development roadmap for the western region. He said politics inspired by the people, devoted to and based on the people, is the only way to make multiparty democracy a success. His thoughts can be the guideline and motivation for all of us. After all, there is nothing more important than the people's welfare. The king said as much in his speech and this is the same philosophy that the leaders of the political parties have stressed repeatedly."
