Bidhya Devi Bhandari Car scandal

The presidential’s office has proposed for a budget of 160 million to the Nepal government for buying a bullet proof car for the president. It is very sad that in a country with a total population of 30 million and  which has been listed in the least developed country, the office of the president demands the need of a such huge amount of money just for the transportation vehicle. Moreover, if you look at her career or history you would not find any kind of threats or any security issue that she needs such a vehicle.
The Nepal Government has already agreed to provide Rs 40 million for the purpose, the President's office last week proposed  the Ministry of Defense (MoD) to arrange an additional Rs 120 million budget to buy the car of President Bhandari's taste.

According to Republica Daily , " The estimated cost is based on the initial price assessment report prepared by Nepal Army (NA) which has been asked to procure the vehicles. NA reportedly came with the proposal after holding preliminary talks with some car manufacturers."

Just imagine how many schools can be renovated or how many schools can be built in the remote and rural areas. It is not her money its people hard earned tax money which needs proper accountability and transparency .

The Political culture of Nepal has degraded in the luxury where political leaders are more concerned about their facilities and services  than the benefit of the public. It is a very well seen culture that every time a new minister is changed or reinstated, they want a new car and services.

The bottoms line is they do politics in the name of social service where as they use the power and position for their own service  and facility. Ego, corruption, favoritism and Nepotism has become a culture of the system.

What a shame ?

Please do not call yourself  the head of the state call yourself the tax payers money termites
