Nepal: Life After Girija Prasad Koirala

Girija Prasad Koirala died yesterday at the age of 86. He was perhaps the most famous, successful and popular politician of the country. He was Prime Minister for 6 times (or five times?) and for many years the leader of the opposition. Koirala had enormous contribution in establishing democracy in the Nepal. In the last few months, he was trying to form a consensus among the political forces so that peace could come in the country. With his death, Nepal really lost its true guardian.
I am worried for the future of Nepal because I cannot think of anyone like Mr. Koirala who is acceptable to different political parties in the country.
