Nepal this week had exploratory cases, which surprisingly, was solved in time with evident findings, given the pace of development of past cases.
Cases regarding corruption, ineligibility, and ideological differences held government’s pace in development, resulting in unattended posts in the requisite governmental bodies. Government methods of controlling social media and communication tools have not been well received by citizens and organizations, affirming an additional move towards autocracy. Parliament members refraining from meetings and their claim on weak government shows detached parliament, absent of humility within the lawmakers. The politicization in every development sector may be the cause of stagnated growth, under-developed public policies, and deprived civil rights of Nepal. Although the constitution withhold leaders to act favorably, there are still loopholes in the formulated laws for them to act otherwise. To sterilize the faults in the system, government should now be proactive to avoid situations that disintegrate the relation between the government and people. Rather than acting to an undesired situation, our leaders should adopt perpetual governing model, restricting conflicts, and strengthening civil societies. Given the ruling party now is remodeling its governance framework as of China, citizens of Nepal would seldom undermine the ideologies of the leading organization unless it fails to provide peace, development, freedom, and security. Government now should be active rather than reactive.
