Nepali People Are Seeking A Healthy Leadership
Meanwhile, and as before: Evictions, murder, and extortion continue in Nepal. Maoists continue with their parallel government; extortion, violence and intimidation. Janjatis continue with their agitations; political parties spend their time and energy in wrangling and " talks." All the while, people continue to suffer from lack of law and order, as well as uncontrolled and uneven inflation and commodity prices.
The responsible leaders have no appropriate plan. In fact, they are plan "less," vision "less" and thoughtless. The people weighted them as painless and not obligatory to the general public. The political leaders are hungry and thirsty for power only, only interested in remaining in the front line of the national politics.
"Politics in Nepal seems for own sake or for leader sake, but not for
people sake. We see talking politics men-to-men, leader –to –leader
and party-to-party. Nepal, on the appetite of a healthy leadership,
is seeking the best national leader – who is that?" asked Dr.
Surendra Pradhanag in Kathmandu.
He further said "As the study showed on the present political
situation of the country, the general public are hue and cry in
political crisis and out of peace and harmony in the country and they
are being faced the hardships to spend the normal life in the
country. The country facing under the cloud of uncertainty and
violence is not good. Once again 'a sea of people' may come to display
in search of peace and security and real democracy before the
government and the responsible political leaders."
"Nepal is facing the unsettled landscape and constitutional challenges
of eligibility to every political exercise. Due to the unfinished power-sharing
negotiations between seven alliance party and Maoists, there is no any
effort or progress seen to end the era of 'political victimization and
vendetta'. The seven alliance party is not fully capable to convenes
the Maoists in order to maintain peace and political stability in the
country." Dr. Surendra Bhakta Pradhanang of Nepal is an award winning
personality whose work has helped create a new face for tourism and
economic development and the best thinker of village development and
the nation's developmen further added "people want to see the
political leaders held more accountable before the law and regulations
ruled by the national constitution."
Pradhang further stated," Let the people decide the policies they
want. People's democracy must not be limited within the paper and
speech. In Nepal national politics must not be for the political
leaders. Despite, national politics must be for the welfare and
people's desire. No change, it is experienced, is seen in the Nepalese politics at all though we talk about people's democracy. In the country at the heart of the general people known as the strength of People's Democracy, person-to –person politics has rat-a-tatted up to 22.2 million people. Due to fear, insurgency and instability of the national politics, people are out of normal life facing horror and danger in every walk of life".
Dr. Pradhanang led Kathmandu Research Centre as chairperson from 1984
- 2007. During the time KRC conducted various research studies on the
national issues. He is the village expert having love and development
-mind to villages of Nepal and abroad. He is, in fact, the man of the
world having the cosmopolitan nature further added "Hence, the
country's politics remains exceedingly tense and dangerous. This time
we can expect nothing than the picturesque of dispute and quarrel for
power sharing and dirty politics for personal benefit. For the
national interest and people's welfare the present national politics
could not have been set at all. Anyway, people and country want and
need people -oriented democracy not leader-oriented."
"The system of real democracy in the country must be established. No
progress is possible and nothing can be helped to the people unless
and until the national politics is free from vandalism, insurgency,
personal selfishness and danger of power politics in real terms."
Dr. Surendra continued, "Mounted tensions to the government of Nepal and
seven alliance party, after Maoists quit the government and veered in
their political thought. The Maoists sought the parliamentary approval
for republic and fully proportional voting system for the proposed
constituent assembly polls. The November polls have been under a
shadow after having left the interim government by the Maoists rebels."
Later, the CPN (UML) registered two amendment proposals on the special
political agenda tabled by the CPN (Maoist) at the parliament. A
second proposal filed by the party legal provision adopts fully
propositional electoral system.
Prime Minister Girija has called the regular session of the interim
Legislature Parliament on November 19.The parties could not forge
consensus on the Maoists' special political proposal. The urgent and
emergency meetings held for discussing Maoists' proposal,
is lying indecisive consequences. The leaders look like the pendulum
of a clock switched on the strength of a battery charge which is moved
by the external force.
