Nepal’s efforts at getting a new constitution has remained stalled for many months, but the peace process which too witnessed many obstacles is finally nearing conclusion.

On Saturday, the special committee entrusted with rehabilitation and integration of former Maoist combatants closed its secretariat. Its task will now be taken over by a three-member coordination committee.

This committee will oversee the induction of over 1,400 former Peoples’ Liberation Army rebels into Nepal Army.

These former combatants will become part of a new directorate with a total strength of 4,000 plus and will be entrusted with tasks.
