  7. Nepali students were cheated by AGENTS back at Kathmandu and by Univeristy as well. Nepali daily highlits this news in it's todays front page. Please read full news: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nepali students stranded in Holland NITYA NANDA TIMSINA KATHMANDU, DEC 25 The lure of a European degree has left many Nepali students stranded in the Netherlands. The Dutch Delta University (DDU) and a Kathmandu-based educational consultancy, Softwarica, allegedly fed Nepali students wrong information have landed them in trouble in a foreign land. Though no data is available, a student recruiting agent in Kathmandu said an estimated 70 Nepali students are currently studying at DDU. The latter is offering them free air tickets home and an option for an online degree in Nepal after amassing thousands of Euros as six months' tuition fees and insurance. Prakash Timilsina, a student originally from Panauti, told our correspondent that dozens of students who came to the university with dreams of quality higher education have been cheated. Timilsina himself saw an advert in a newspaper that lured him to the Netherlands. Hundreds of students attended a seminar at a star hotel in Kathmandu on September 2, 2004 where they were told about Dutch work-study programs. They thought this was a wonderful opportunity for them to grab an European degree. "Mr Deelstra (president of DDU) had also attended the seminar and assured us that everything was very easy in the Netherlands. He told us that we could work three hours a day," Timilsina said. Each student paid 4,050 to 6,000 euros, which covered 6 months' tuition fee, insurance and a residence permit. But once they landed at the university, they were told that they could work only 10 hours a week. Now, they don't have money to make the rest of the installment payments. Returning to Nepal without a degree seems even more humiliating as their parents have already spent a huge amount. Arjun Dahal from Lakeside, Pokhara, Bhola Pudasaini of Kathmandu, Umesh Rijal of Jhapa and Bishal Prasain made headlines in the Netherlands after they told the local press that they were cheated by their university. "We were badly treated by the University and IND," Dahal said. Ghanashyam Ghimire, manager of Softwarica, dismissed the allegations. "Not all students are complaining. We have sent many others. We are ready to face legal action if we had done anything wrong." Similarly, Jules Plevier, director of Education at DDU, denied having lied to Nepali students in Kathmandu. "The university is trying to send Nepalese students back to Nepal with free air tickets and an option for an online degree, where students will be supported by a local representative," he said in an e-mail sent to the KOL. An official at the Consulate of the Netherlands, requesting anonymity said, "Hundreds of Nepalese have entered Western Europe in recent years due to conflict in Nepal." The official also accused the educational consultancies of taking advantage of Nepal's precarious situation to make profits. Source: http://kantipuronline.com/knews.php 26/12/2005

  18. I sent constitution by email today please check. I’m delighted to understand towards establishing WNSO Nepal on the ground and the initiatives you and other colleagues have taken. Regarding authority of WNSO central committee and WNSO Nepal is as discussed publicly; WNSO UK initiated the idea and will remain influential member of the Network. WNSO Nepal will report to WNSO international committee which is under process of formation. But WNSO UK and it’s members will do their best to support in all aspect of management, organisation, co-ordination and financial support of WNSO Nepal. A part from that WNSO UK is planning to establish own Scholarship in co-ordination with WNSO Nepal and I trust other member network will follow suite. As we are planning to draft framework of WNSO International Committee which will draft all the guidelines and programmes and selection process of each network, for this reason until we finalise this international committee WNSO Nepal will report it’s activities to WNSO UK which is acting as WNSO central committee. I can assure you that WNSO UK will do their best to help and support to establish WNSO Nepal on the ground and continue it’s activities. If you need further info or assistance please email us at info@wnso.org With regards, Dinesh Gautam

  22. Aldershot has more population then Plumstead.
  23. 1) The CPN-UML has officially declared their opposition to the king’s announcement. This proclamation is illegal, non-democratic and unconstitutional. In the name of solving the problem the king is attempting to extend his intentions and authority. 2) The CPN-UML declares their priority for united within all political parties against the announcement of the king. The first priority is to establish unity within all parliamentary (officially recognized) parties. However, the CPN-UML also would like to bring non-parliamentary parties, including Maoists, into a unified platform and struggle for a peaceful revolution against the king. The CPN-UML has invited the Maoists to join “cease terrorits acts and join hand to hand for a peaceful revolution.” The CPN-UML has given higher priority to go against the announcement of the king than to oppose the Maoists. They are appealing to the Maoists to “join with the [CPN-UML] in a peaceful way.” 3) The CPN-UML is seeking to organize a popular movement against the king by networking with different political parties. · When asked how he felt about many Nepali’s comments that they did not regret the suspension of political parties due to corruption and mismanagement by political parties since the beginning of democracy, he said “democracy has done many positive things to strengthen civil society for the public.” · Pokhrel also said, “the government is only in the city. If the Maobodi allow the parties to organize in the village they can harness their popular support and organize against the king.” · “compared to the political parties, the monarchy has a much worse reputation. Don’t measure the political parties based on the word on the street. Today if elections took place 80% would vote for the political parties and 10% would vote for the monarchy.” · However, there is very little support for the leaders of the political party. “The present cabinet has only 2% of the popular vote.” This distrust of party leaders is the reason why many Nepalis are expressing support of the king’s decision. · “Over the last 14 years we have made a lot of mistakes, which we are now realizing. Now there is lots of dialogue within the party and we are going to go forward with a new path.” · “Our first mistake was that we made a lot of compromises with the monarchy. We knew it was a mistake, [catering to the king’s wishes], but we weren’t able to communicate to the people [that we were acting on the king’s command]” · When asked if CPN-UML had to choose between the king and Maoists today, Pokhrel responded, “the question is not ‘to whom we choose’, but ‘when will the Maoists and King choose the people?’ We would choose ourselves!” · Pokrel said that “the Maoists are more capable of changing” than the King, i.e., the Maoists are more likely to make compromises and come forward to work for a peaceful resolution, so they are more likely to work with the Maoists than the king. · “The Maoists are in a good position after February 1. Because of the king’s announcement lots of people will go to the Maoists and join forces.” · When asked if CPN-UML members would join the Maoists, Pokhrel responded, “We are trying to make a movement. If we are not able to make a strong movement [due to suppression from the monarchy], many will join the Maoists. But no one will join the monarchy.” · When asked if he had plans to flee the country to escape arrest, he said, “We are Nepali people. We don’t need to leave. We operated underground for years during the Panchayat regime, and we will survive now.” · Before Feb 1, Pokhrel was the Director of the Education Department for CPN-UML. Since Feb 1, he has been named Director of Media Relations for CPN-UML. He is the former president of the Nepal National Free Students Union. He is 41 and has two daughters.
  24. *** Nepali Congress Statement: Spokesman Arjun Narasingha KC issued a statement on February 5th. In addition to condemning the King's move and demanding the immediate release of detained political leaders, he asked all members of the Nepali Congress who might have joined splinter factions to rejoin the "mother party" in order to effectively rally against the palace. *** Human Rights Community Statement: Kathmandu – 14 key civil society members met to make a statement on Feb 1 2005. The statement said that after King Gyanendra’s speech he dismissed the cabinet, took all power, and established his own government. This action is directly in opposition to the basic values and norms of democracy. From today’s meeting by human rights activists and the people from civil society, we condemn these steps by the king After the king has taken power in Nepal, he has issued a declaration of emergency. This is a direct threat and violation of human rights. This declaration is in violation of numerous international accords that Nepal is a signatory to and accountable for. In this serious and sensitive situation, we are assembling this meeting in order to request to the national and international community to secure and restore all human rights codes and accords. 1) Condemning the arrest of the political leaders and human rights defenders and demanding that their locations be revealed. 2) The RNA must immediately stop closely directly and indirectly monitoring all media, human rights defenders, and outspoken individuals. We are specially requesting the diplomatic community to assist with arrange security within Nepal and outside Nepal for all these individuals. 3) Without any reason, the mass communication and media have been shut down. This irresponsible act will create significant obstacles for the general people. This is why we are asking the international community to arrange a systematic mass communication for the people of Nepal. 4) We are requesting an independent and sovereign human rights commission. This commission is unable to do work properly right now. We are requesting a guarantee of proper work environment for the commission. 5) The country’s human rights situation is worsening significantly. We are requesting that United Nations and human rights organizations conduct human rights monitoring in Nepal Signatories: 1) Subodh Raj Pyakural, INSEC 2) Govinda Bandi, Nepal Bar Association [Human Rights Committee] 3) Shobhakar Budhadhoki, CEHURBS ? 4) Pradeep Shankar Wagle, Nepal Bar Association [Human Rights Committee] 5) Rajesh Hamal, Advocacy Forum 6) Madhav Pradhan, CIWIN Nepal 7) Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal, Mahendra Narian Smriti Pratestan 8) Usha Titikshu, Civic Solidarity for Peace 9) Dinesh Prasain, Collective Campaign for Peace (CoCAP) 10) Samir Nepal, Human Rights Alliance 11) Gopal Siwakoti, INHURED 12) Surya Bahadur XXX, NGO Federation 13) Anil Bhattarai, Nepal South Asia Center (NESAC) 14) Swanaam, Civic Solidarity for Peace All 14 signatories of the document are now under threat of arrest by RNA, who is searching for the activists. They are living underground. *** From an interview with Shankar Pokhrel, Director of Media Relations, CPN-UML, February 5 · Pokhrel has been in hiding since the February 1 announcement. His home has been searched and he is known to be on the 1,000 person list of UML party members whom the RNA has been given orders to arrest. · Since Feb 1, he has stayed in three houses over four days, frequently moving from place to place to avoid his path from being traced by the RNA. · He has been able to communicate with other party members during the brief periods where phones have been restored and the party is gathering information and making a plan at these times. · The RNA has a list of 1,000 people to arrest, divided into three categories. Category A is called “sensitive persons” and consists of people with the capacity to lead the masses, who are spokespeople and ery well-known. Category B is for Central Committee Members and Category C is for general cadre. · The 3 main leaders of CPN-UML are under house arrest. · 10-12 other leaders are in police custody. · 200+ active workers from CPN-UML are also in police custody. · Leaders of Nepali Congress are also under house arrest and in police custody. · This is occurring in districts throughout Nepal. · The CPN-UML held a meeting to form an agenda and address the king’s proclamation, and addressed three issues:
