Mahabir Pun Selling his awards for the funding of National innovation center

Mahabir Pun the Social Entrepreneur of Nepal has commissioned for his private conferred awards to be auctioned in US for raising money for the establishment of National Innovation Center in Nepal,

In the past pun who has been fundraising for the operation of the National Innovation Centre, has announced he will donate 28 ropanis of his land, located at Thulakot Danda, Kaskithe worth Rs32 million for the purpose.

Sad thing is he has donated all his awards for the fundraising where Nepal Government is silent about the issues. There has been no statements issue by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment of Nepal.

What is the role and responsibility of Nepal government? If an individual is trying to do so much at least the government of Nepal should try to facilitate ?

What are they doing except making worthless policy and regulation? When we have billions stocked up in the name of Rural Telecommunication Development Fund and nothing is being done why can't we use that fund for the benefit of the citizen of Nepal ?
