The Constituent Assembly Committee on State Restructuring
and Distribution of State Power today decided to endorse 14 federal units to
the Constituent Assembly full House. The committee also passed the capitals of
all the federal units.
The 14 autonomous regions / states include Khaptad, Karnali,
Lumbini-Awadh-Tharuwan, Magarat, Tamuwan, Narayani Region,
Mithila-Bhojpura-Koch-Madhes, Newa:, Tamsaling, Sunkoshi, Limbuwan, Khumbuwa,
Jadan and Sherpa.
As the specific demarcation of the proposed federal
territories is yet to be made public, the proposed Sherpa Autonomous Region
seems to include the Himalayan region of Nepal settled by Sherpa people from
Mt. Makalu in the east to the Dorje Lhakpa in the West. World's highest peak
Mt. Everest and 3 other 8000m peaks namely Lhotse, Makalu and Cho-Oyu are
located in this region.
In the present map of Nepal, the areas located north of the
Sindhupalchok, Dolakha, Ramechap, Okhaldunga, Solukhumu, Khotang, Bhojpur,
Sankhuwasabha and Taplejung districts form the territories of the proposed
Sherpa state. Salleri the administrative / political headquarter of
current Solukhumbu distinct is proposed as the capital of the Sherpa state.
Salleri lies South of Mt. Everest in the Solu Valley at the foot of the
Number and Karyolung mountains. Solukhumbu is known as the first habitat of
the Sherpas after their migration from Tibet 600 years ago.
Though the Nepali census of 2001 shows Sherpa population in
Nepal at 1,54,622(,0.68% of the national total 77,511 male and 77,111 are
female) Sherpa right groups believe the population to exceed 400,000.
The deadline for the completion of writing new constitution
is May 2010.
