No Governance at public Departments of Nepal



If you talk about the current situation in most of public departments of Nepal then its very sad in terms of providing services and facilities. Though these department  are established with the motive to provide  public with  services and facilities  but then  there is a huge gap of  corruption and nepotism that goes around. These public departments are not monitored nor are the Civil servant staff trained to treat the public in proper way.

It always my way or highway where the public are bound to suffer the consequences of bad services and facilities. Today #WED2016  I went to the Department of Transportation and Management (DoTM) for my pollution sticker. I was firm about my rights and what I need to do so I was not framed but despite that I was asked to use and I refused it.

I believed that for change you have to stand up from inside, so my take was that on Environment Day 2016 no matter what I would take the Vehicle Pollution Test and get a green sticker. It is my responsibility at individual level to promote pollution free vehicle and I think what better to do it than today.

While waiting for my turn, I was surprised to hear the stories of People and the current agent trend that is adapting upon the public services which is directly promoting corruption to a new level.

You cannot make things happen or cannot do a public work without the agents. You have to pay extra money to hire an agent for the quick services. If you try to do the job yourself it will probably take ages not because you will have troubles knowing  the public but the staffs won't cooperate. The problem here is not the cooperation but the adaption of the agents services in public services and governance. These agents are so powerful that they have their own affiliation and working strategy.

The staff are  rude and they just out lash their  frustration upon the public like anything. It completely  impossible to even deal with them at person level.

 Another sad Aspect of sad public governance is the public line up from 4 AM for the application submission of driving licence and still after waiting in the line for hours they are turned down depending upon the random number of application accepted by the DoTM staff.

Sad Reality but yes there is no public service or governance in Nepal.

5 corers to the member of parliament can make our politicians accountable

I think the idea of giving 5 corers to the Member of Parliaments(MPs) directly for assisting various regional public and social work is a great initiative. It would be a direct investment from the state to the MPs to public.As right now due to lack of proper mechanism most of the development work budget gets freezed or corrupted due to lengthy procedural administrative work and most of the times when the real work needs to be done things don't work according to plan. Reality is most of the times, the budget gets freezed at the end of the fiscal year in absence of proper mechanism and the administration in view of finishing the budget misuses the funds in unnecessary projects. This has been happening from the past few decades and it has been practiced all along. I feel sad that the money that could have been used for proper projects gets cramped over some unnecessary unwanted project that was not even in view of consideration and the money gets wasted in view of getting freezed. The habit of working late or working without a efficient strategy is what has lacked the Nepal Government's Administration

What's the use?

Like said, previously the money channeled through many hands so there was more chances of corruption but since the money would directly be given to the MPs hope they would be more careful and accountable as their name and reputation is involved.

Apart from that corruption cannot be stopped, it can only be controlled and I think this is the best way to make our politician more accountable but there should be effective monitoring mechanism from the public and the state.......


I think its better for the MPs aleast to try to make it use when we have already given everything, why not this

Prachanda Path-- The joker has one more trick up his sleeve

Recently the Baburam Bhattrai's led government announced that Nepal government would give facilities of car, and security to VIPs. The announcement was hugely condemned and highly criticized from all sectors. In midst of that recently prominent leaders like Ram Chandra Poudel of Nepali Congress, Madhav Kumar Nepal of Unified Marxist-Leninist (UML) Party and Jhalnath Khanal of the same party returned their vehicles to the government. Their move came in action in support of the huge criticism from the public and other sectors but the most shocking and amazing thing is even Mr Pupa Kamal Dahal the Supremo of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) also returned his Toyota Parado to the government. It is completely illogical and absurd why he submitted his government facility.

In one hand the Baburam led Maoist party declares the facilities and services where as on the other hand the same party's Chairman returns the vehicle to the government.

What should the public think, is it another politics or should we assume that there is a new plot written to divert the attention of the public ?
