Instead of focusing on advancing its interests, Nepalese stakeholders have often compromised them while serving the interest of external powers and dislodging or defending the system and government.
Without civilian control over the military, democracy cannot effectively control armed insurgency and deliver political stability. “Prithivian Trinity” could be a mantra to deter or defeat external threats and critical internal challenges.
The government's handling of the Maoist insurgency was a political mess. Had the RNA leveraged the palace-military relations for its preemptive mobilization in Dunai, subsequent major events like Holeri, Dang, and the dissolution of the twin-pillar system would have been prevented. The sovereign monarch is quite an old concept, hence became untenable in 2006.
India's core interests in Nepal are to continue with the 1950 Treaty, maintain influence in internal affairs, prevent security threats from the Nepali front, recruit youths for Gorkha regiments, maintain an open border regime, and harness water resources.
