Note No. 717                                             Dated 19-May-2014

It was no surprise that in the parliamentary meeting of the Nepali Congress held at the PM’s residence on 3rd May, a large number of members roundly criticised PM Sushil Koirala for not exercising the PM’s power fully and for creating an inertia in the government by not taking decisions in time. Mr. Koirala is not seen to have been moved by the internal criticisms levelled against him.

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
It is generally agreed that the main task of the present Koirala government should be to get on with constitution making within one year. This urgency has been reflected in almost all the manifestos of the parties during the November elections and continued to be mouthed now and then.  But the ground realities appear to be different!
 

Nepal: Why All this fuss over Local Elections? : Update No. 294

Note No. 713          Dated 20-March-2014

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

One notices that the present government of Nepal led by the Nepali Congress-UML combine gets into unnecessary and trivial controversies that would only further delay its primary task of getting a new constitution in time. In this process, the faith the people had put in them in electing them in overwhelming numbers in the last interim assembly elections also gets eroded.
