From the appointment of Dr. Baburam Bhattrari to his so called political apathy of bringing relief to the general public has outgrown its image and aspirations. Bold with the statement of making the smallest government to spending NRS 2.7 million in just one hi-tea program, to the BIPPA agreement, to making the biggest government, certainly shows the image and practice of this new political culture. Diluting its credibility and image any one can clearly know the political games and manipulation happening with Baburam’s government. With such propaganda and controversies, the country seems to lack no solution for its political instability and chaos.
Forming a coalition government and being the 35the Prime minister of Nepal, Baburam showed immense hope to the public in taking the country towards the path of development. Making people believe of finding a solution to the peace process and the constitution was the final point of understanding which was nevertheless in question.
His appointment in post expected a certain level of political morality and ethics that certainly seems to stretch with the outcry of publicity and marketing strategy that has been adapted and practiced. The lack of political understanding and the gaps between the political parties certainly shows the bad example of political culture and its practice in Nepal.
The Peace process and constitution seems to be in a pendulum state which searches its definition among the intrinsic factor that influences and manipulates it identity at times of need or else it’s just there to hold its position for the recognition.
Constitution Making: Constitution making process has been a joke from the past 3 years where the chairman of the Constitution Assembly Subash Nembang fails to recognize the importance of time validation and believes in extension of the Constitution Assembly again and again. What can we expect from leaders like this? Searching solution for the stalled Constitution in the area conflict, public memorandum is the best possible solution but it seems the Nepali Constitution Assembly (CA) Law Makers and political parties are scared that their regular income will be curbed. Legally Law makers earn NRS 60,000 (USD 800) per month officially excluding perks so one can imagine the level of income that they are enjoying.
Peace Process: Looking at it from an expert’s point of view, peace process is like the middle point of a stoppage. All the parties and law makers talk about Peace and how it should be managed but when it comes to the management and table things don’t work. Reality is peace process is agreed upon the points of agreement and terms of reference that are being signed to make government but when it comes to action bad political practices rules in. The coalition government was formed to solve the peace process but it’s so happening that peace process seems to be the greatest hindrance for the current government.
Moving forwards with the peace process seven teams of 210 surveyors have been set up for the categorization of 19,000 Maoist combatants. They are expected to complete the categorization process by November 28, where at policy level things seem unclear. On Sunday Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal reached Bardiya accompanied by UML leader Bamdev Gautam and NC leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula to direct his party cadres to return land seized during the insurgency to their rightful owners, but returned Kathmandu without giving unambiguous directives to the cadres in this regard. Some of the party cadres had also threatened to retaliate if the properties were returned to the owners forcefully.
It is estimated that the United Communist Parties of Nepal (Maoist) has captured around 2,000 bighas of private and public land in Bardiya. According to the district administration office, 242 families have registered complaints about seizure of land by the Maoists.
In 2010 the UN had rehabilitated over 4,000 disqualified combatants, including child soldiers. These combatants disqualified by the United Nations Mission in Nepal during the 2007 verification of the Maoist army have frequently expressed their dissatisfaction over their rehabilitation.
Amid lack of political modality and culture, Nepal political situation lies in a rest situation pointing figures at each other. Political leaders getting rich and famous and political agendas lacking recognition is a question of where we are moving. The definite solution to any problem can be done if there is an effort to solve but when there is no effort there is no solution.
