Nepal election sets new records for young candidates for mayors post

With a long wait of 17 years, the local level election fever hits Nepal in an unprecedented way. The long awaited election still seems to be suffering an ill  faith with limited political support but the election fever seems to be rising in the candidates.  

Most of the political parties are getting ready but with the orthodox and prejudice values, the new political parties are coming up with new candidates who are not only young but they seem relatively new to this field.

The Bibeksheel Nepali Party which has recently rose to popularity has been challenging the orthodox political mentality of introducing new and young energy to leadership position. In this run the party has nominated 21-year-old Ranju Darshana to run for the Mayor of Kathmandu Metropolitan City in the upcoming local level elections slated for May 14.

As per the party, Ranju was selected for Mayor post on behalf of the party based on open candidacy policy. Whether a publicity stunt or not but putting a 21 years old to the position of mayor seems not convincing. People may see a new trend but they will certainly have issues with the decision making capacity and strategic planning process.

Supporting the youth and giving power is the need of the time  but a mayor position is more strategic and concerning in terms of experience and education. Its not that I do not support the youth energy but I strongly believe in the right candidate at the right place than such for placing a candidate for the sake of it.

How can it be justified that giving a young candidate the post in view of young energy ? what would be the difference between the orthodox mentality of power absorption and nepotism concept with the concept of putting new candidate just for the sake of it.

What is the difference in between the old and the new political parties as in both cases the decision would be ruled in by the parties and their leadership than the candidates?

Nepal will vote but we need to broaden our vision and strengthen our  mentality.

No Horn Campaign in Nepal

The Nepal Traffic police  recently launched its no horn Campaign in Kathmandu from April 15. With the launch of the campaign the public vehicle are  hugely affected in terms of their driving behavior. Previously when public vehicle use to dominate the roads with their loud horns, now with no option of driving slow they are stressed in terms of managing the issue of pedestrian and on going road maintenance process.

On one hand due to the maintenance work it is very hard to see with all the dust cloud where as with no horn there is no option to even drive which increase the risks of accidents. Similarly, pedestrians in view of lack of awareness use the road sides randomly for crossing roads and other purpose where the chance of accidents have increased tremendously. The campaign is certainly a need of the time  but enacting it right at the moment is a question of real-time study.

Why people are suffering?

  1. People do not feel responsible while crossing roads
  2. Road etiquette are non existences 
  3. Even educated people still have no awareness about zebra crossing and traffic rules 
  4. Lack of  Zebra Crossing at major location 
  5. Lack of traffic lights 
  6. Traffic police are not aware or prepared

Free Holiday in Nepal: all Thanks to Bidhya

The Nepal Government has announced a public holiday on 17 April and on her return day. This is Bidhya's first state visit abroad after assuming the office in October 2015. She is visiting at the invitation of President Pranab Mukherjee. Bidhya was scheduled to visit India in May last year, but it was cancelled after the then cabinet in Nepal did not endorse the programme citing lack of preparations on the part of the government. She is scheduled to meet  President Mukherjee, Vice President Hamid Ansari, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and other leaders.

It is really annoying why the Nepal Government is Announcing a public holiday when we already have so many public holiday listed celebrating the diversity and cultural ethnicity. The outrageous trend of announcing holidays in the name of political apathy has crossed all limits where the normal public have to suffer the consequences. Yes its the same old story, the roads will be closed and there will be so called security protocols followed. Nepal's political culture practices an orthodox blowjob act of eccentric behavior which may boost their morale but it suck from all sides.  

I really do not think what has bidhya done to deserve this honor, she is merely a politician with interest

Kathmandu's Forest Risks Deforestation

It has been reported that the forest in Kathmandu has been risked deforestation with private development activities. After the success of Chandragiri cable car, Private sector in Nepal is very much showing interest in developing infrastructure in the name of tourism and development to exploit the forest area surrounding Kathmandu valley . With the controversy of Chandragiri Cable Car paying pennies as royalty for the use of the forest, the application at District Administration Office for building private recreational structures  have gone up.    

It is estimated that 50 hectares of forest risks the possibility of deforestation.  Many projects have applied for the use of forest for building infrastructure in the name of  development at various location in and around Kathmandu valley.

It seems with the lack of knowledge and limitation of future vision Nepalese political leaders are blinded by corruption and favoritism. In many cases they have allotted forest land to private firm with the authority of using such forest as a means of earning revenue which high risks deforestation and the diversity of the forest.  

#SaveTree campaign is an eminent project which needs to be incorporated in the awareness campaign of Nepal's political leaders who need to be aware and vigilant about the current climate change issue and its impact but sadly with the limitation of educated and quality leadership, Nepal's fate lies in the hands of  some deprived leaders who have no loyalty towards this nation and its future.
