  Sherpa Autonomous State proposed in the drafting of Nepal's new constitution


 

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.
