There is a proposal for eight states to form the republic. These are: Khasan,
Tharuwan, Magart, Tamuwan, Tamang, Newa, Kirat and Madhesh.
Chrystian Kretowicz, 26 April 2008
The most recent list of the declared autonomous states that I was able to
compile is (the names vary sometimes from one report to another): Limbuwan,
Kirant (or Kirat), Birat-Mechi-Kochila, Mithila, Sunkoshi-Gaurishankar,
Tamsaling (or Tamangsaling), Newa,
Bhojpura, Tamuwan, Narayani, Magarat, Tharuhat-Lumbini, and Karnali-Khasang
Obviously, the situation is fluid and highly confusing, as many other states were declared already in the past, either by the Maoists, or other, independent initiatives.
