King Gyanendra breaks silence yet again

Gyanendra challenges SPA over republic declaration

In less than a week time, Nepal’s sidelined monarch Gyanendra keeping mum for over a year period has broken his silence twice.
The question is not only that why he speaks but whom or which force on earth is provoking him to break his silence and that too in series.
If it is not the Nepal Army that had long association with the monarchial institution then for god’s shake which force is backing King Gyanendra this time…, analyst remain baffled.
“The western democracies, the US or India…or the Maoists themselves”, analyst have no answer.
Any ways, this time it was not simply a “verbal attack’ on the ruling political parties but he pose a question mark on the very legality of the “republic declaration”.
The decision to abolish the monarchy was an “undemocratic step”, says King Gyanendra openly.
This, King Gyanendra said last Monday talking to a select group of Japanese journalist at the Narayanhiti Royal Palace in Kathmandu.
King Gyanendra’s interview was published in Daily Yomiuri, Japan's leading newspaper.
Key Points:
The decision doesn't reflect the majority view of the people. This isn't democracy.
The people have the right to choose the fate of the monarchy.
Some leaders have tried to take action that was against cultural, social and traditional values.
A majority of the people find great meaning in the institution of the monarchy. In all clouds, there is a silver lining.
Only a week ago King Gyanendra talking to a local journalist had said that he had no idea as regards the declaration of Republic in the country.

I will look into the matter more seriously…, King Gyanedra had said.
Analysts remained puzzled as to what transpired in less than a week time that forced King Gyanendra though strongly questioning the legitimacy of the parliamentary proclamation however in doing so also accepting that the Country has already been declared a republic.
The question is also that as to who dare question the legitimacy of the parliamentary decision, the parliament that was raised from the dead by King Gyanendra himself, say analyst.
How will the SPA leadership retaliate to the questions posed by the Monarch on the legitimacy of the series of decisions that the leadership has taken since he gave up power, will have to be watched and will perhaps decide the future course the country is to take?

Ceremonial monarchy might not be too bad. Specially, if the king is stripped of all powers
