Why do Nepalese give unnecessary value to foreigners?

Kiran Koirala, Munich, Germany:

Recently, a political suggestion given by a former US president Mr. Jimmy Carter has brought a large rector scale quake in Nepali media, political and intellectual circles. The most surprising is the Maoist leaderships and other leftists who called themselves "True natinalist" noted such suggestion positively. Mr. Carter is nothing but a former president of USA. He even does not have any significant influences on his country's own politics or decisions. Nobody is caring about how Mr. Carter's suggestion has violated the Nepal's prevailing constitution. His suggestions were against the present constitution of Nepal. As a former president of a democratic country, he must obey the constitution of another democratic country. In Nepal's constitution, it is clearly written that the fate of monarchy would be decided by the people's votes and whether the country remain kingdom or transform into republic after people's opinion. Mr. Carter did not respect the constitution of Nepal and Nepalese people's right. He overlooked the people's voting power and suggested the present parliament, a non elected body, to pass such a resolution which is still not endorsed by Nepalese citizens. Mr. Carter insulted Nepal and Nepalese people and he must say sorry to us for his unconstitutional suggestions. Nepalese media must raise this issue. Politicians must rise above their party politics. They must object anyone who opines against the constitution. We should not forget that we are the citizens of an independent and sovereign country. Why do the Nepalese media, politicians, and intellectuals give over value to the foreigners in our internal matters? Can these foreigners speak against their constitution or change a very fundamental things of their constitution without people's votes? No.
