How did you feel when the peace agreement was signed [in Nepal] in 2006?
It was good that the peace was declared, but it would have been better if words had been translated into actions. Yes, it is peaceful compared with the days of conflict when bombs were exploding. But Nepal can't go forward until and unless a campaign of punishment is imposed on the perpetrators [of violence and human rights abuses].
What message do you have for the international organizations working in Nepal?
Let all of us work together, behaving as brothers and sisters to each other, and cooperate for the well-being of all. Not only in Nepal but also at the international levels, may the soul be cleansed and all people reconcile with one another, so that peace may be restored and their lives may be led to peace. Reconciliation will boost prosperity and establish stable peace.
