The Nepal Government is silent about reconstruction



It has been nearly 6 months after the 7.9 earthquake and the second stage of reconstruction has not yet started. Though there has been phenomenal achievement in terms of Constitution and Nepal has successfully appointed the first woman president but relatively nobody seems to be talking about the earthquake reconstruction and other aspect of adaptation process .

It seems pretty not convincing that  the government is more focused towards the Madhesi agitation where there has been no progress made. People are still facing the shortage of petroleum products and the rural area still wait desperately in terms of resources and reconstruction of infrastructure.  I think the major challenges  are

1. The priority of government has changed after the dissolution of previous government
2. The political process is more busy in creating their own existence and finding new opportunities for themselves
3. The Bureaucracy of Nepal is not efficient and effective
4. The earthquake was a process of getting the funds and now when the funds have come then interests have shifted 

5. The public is busy in deal with the shortages nobody has time to rethink about what needs to be done
6. Political culture of Nepal is not morally and ethic based
7. Power and manipulation rules politics of Nepal

8. There is a no capable leadership
9. Nepal is a failed state in terms of politics leadership and decision

Nepal Government lacks management in Earthquake rescue Operation



It is quite obvious what level of damage has been caused by the April 25th earthquake. In view of the humanitarian crisis  a lot of funds and relief materials have been send to the country. But with limited human resources and loads of materials things doesn't look normal. The government seems to be rigid in managing the resources in terms of its  operation and logistic.

The crisis situation has further obliterated the situation creating an overall situation of miscommunication and confusion where the current human resource and resources are getting wasted.

Though rescue and relief operation are going on but they are more focused to limited areas where in most people are still waiting for the rescue operation and relief materials in other parts of the country.

How valid is it for the government just to focus on major areas only ?
Likewise, in most of the case around the valley there are more people who are waiting for rescue and relief operation.

With high concern there seems to be a lack of vision and leadership in terms of management  and communication. crisis situation itself is a confusion where if resources are not manged proper it further distress the situation.

Similarly the lack of monitoring is clearly visible where the prices of food and water are drastically shooting up. There is no control over the market where public have been protesting against the black market.

Even public representative are not surfacing the public in view of escaping the lack of management and operation which on contrary has created a situation of mistrust and disbelief towards the political fraternity.

Reality of today is the public selected the political leaders to power for management of proper system and social welfare  but in view  of their selfish motives they ignore the social welfare in prioritizing corruption, power play, favoritism etc.

The political culture of Nepal is hugely responsible for the current destruction and suffering where they cannot escape their responsibility.      


Current problems
1. There is no decentralization of handling the rescue operation and materials
2. Rescue operation and relief are just focused on priority
3. There is no communication in terms of relief distributions
4. The volunteers and security personnel are not given enough food and fluids
5. The command centers are proving to be less effective due to lack of communication
6. Favoritism and politics lobbying are high on use
7. Lack expertise and experience has slowed the rescue operation
8. Lack of local resources
9. Limited and orthodox mentality

So what did we lacked ?
we are seriously lacking a proper leadership and vision. The government has set up control center but it is slow and lacks monitoring. Moreover centralized system of monitoring resources has made the system weak and vulnerable where the political leaders are manipulating the situation.at this moment of crisis we need to maintain a system that is clear and transparent but here it is completely opposite. Apart from the crisis demands stable action with strategic planning where our GON is forwarding random action with no solution.  

Solution 

The best solution for any crisis management situation is a stable system that works independently with strategic management of resources and operation. The GON needs to establish proper resources centers  with decentralized responsible persons in terms of  management and operation who are individually responsible for their areas and resources pulling it to a proper network of communication and cooperation.

The crisis situation demands use of human resource but making people work with no food is not a motivation but a demotivating factor, so there should be a proper mechanism that should counter such problems.

Sworn for corruption and irregularities



With the appointment of Constituent Members Major political parties are planning to amend the existing Constituent Assembly regulation aiming at promulgating a new constitution within one year.

But my question is?
 Is it possible or are they joking just like last time?


The last 2008 to 2012 Constituent Assembly was dissolved by the then PM Dr baburam Bhattrai in with the obstruction of the #Constitution_making_process. He dissolved the CA in view of lack of politically understanding and in view of the bad image of CA.

To understand the relativity of the problem, first we need to understand our position. I mean to say where the country stands. Right now we are in a transitional phase of corruption, nepotism, power play, political manipulation. The country is ruled by few buffed powerful politicians who have embraced few hooligans and they are governing their rule either by power or by money.  The #political_culture_of_Nepal lacks serious dedicated leadership and vision that can upload the country towards development and change. Political leaders in Nepal are obsessed with corruption, nepotism, favoritism, power politics and racialism where they are doing political in the name of their self-interest.

The real problem of the last Constituent Assembly that pushed it to dissolve its identity are given below:
1. Number of state
2. Criteria of federalist approach

These two were the major issues which hindered the political culture of Nepal.
Can these issues be solved is a million dollar question?


The solution is well prescribed in the interim constitution 2063 that governs the current legal status but by passing the solution the then PM Baburam Bhattrai dissolved the CA in view of showing his lack of leadership.

It has been clearly mentioned in the Interim constitution 2063 that if there is a case of lack of understanding or if there is a situation of lack of interest from related stakeholders the CA can opt for Public memorandum which can be adopted upon anytime upon the agreement of CA members.

I think we do not need a solution but we need to find the problem as Nepal searches new grounds of change and leadership but the orthodox political culture and leadership fails to quit and prolong to create political chaos and anarchy.

Nepal's politics in chaos after the Constituent Assembly 2070


#Political_culture_of_Nepal has gone insane, from the recent General Election of the Constituent Assembly 2070 till here things don't look to be normal, in fact the situation has worsened with in. People voted to get their elected member thinking they would do good for the country but now things are looking exactly the opposite. After election in most of the big political parties the problem of  power segregation and manipulation have evolved as a big question. Groupism and  power politics have infiltrated to nominate their  candidates for the Constituent Assembly. Serious dissatisfaction have been shown by party leaders and cadets in nomination of candidates for the Constituent Assembly. The UCPN cadets were seen torching their office furniture where as the NRPP were seen on the verge of dividing the party. Similarly in the Nepali congress as well dissatisfaction were heard from leaders for the nomination process.

The political leader are displaying a weak #political_culture that recognizes power and politics as the foremost tool. With this  manipulation and tussle the country is further moving towards path of uncertainty and chaos. With limited hopes the country seems to stall itself in the path of deadlock situation where the Constitution seems  to be a  big hurdle. Until and unless the political parties and leader adapt the #concept_of_nation_first, Nepal future seems doomed in corruption, power play, nepotism and criminal politics.

Politics for them is a like a business where they invest a certain amount of money for publicity during election and now when its over they are fighting like crazy to get to power to get back their money with interest.        
What can we expect from political leaders who just want  position and power ........
