A glance at Oli's pros­per­ous Nepal

People's Review - - FRONT PAGE - By Our Re­porter

In ev­ery speech he gives to the peo­ple and his cadres, Prime Min­is­ter K P Sharma Oli doesn't miss to re­peat the word "pros­per­ous Nepal". But how we are be­com­ing pros­per­ous, no one has any idea. The Com­mis­sion for Abuse of Author­ity (CIAA) is taken as a very weak gov­ern­ment in­sti­tu­tion to stop cor­rup­tion, on the other hand, Oli is en­cir­cled with noted no­to­ri­ous busi­ness bro­kers. Oli is say­ing that he is not go­ing to tol­er­ate cor­rup­tion in any form, but it seems, if ac­tion is taken against cor­rupt peo­ple, big lead­ers will come into the cor­rup­tion net. There­fore, Oli's speeches for a cor­rup­tion free Nepal seems to be an im­pos­si­ble task. Oli's home min­is­ter de­cided to end the syn­di­cate sys­tem in trans­porta­tion sec­tor, but an­other min­is­ter has tried to pro­tect the syn­di­cate sys­tem. Ac­cord­ingly, an­other at­tempt of the home min­is­ter to take ac­tion against con­struc­tion en­trepreneurs who have failed to com­plete con­struc­tion works in time has also fiz­zled out.

This at­tempt also failed when min­is­ter Raghu­bir Ma­haseth, known as a busi­ness­man rather than a politi­cian, came to save the con­struc­tion con­trac­tors. Ac­cord­ingly, the home min­is­ter tried to con­trol INGOs/NGOs' sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­i­ties. On this also, Oli him­self has cre­ated hur­dles by giv­ing or­der for not ini­ti­at­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion against INGOs/ NGOs. This is not sur­pris­ing as noted NGO man Su­bodh Pyakurel is in the team of Oli's ad­vi­sors. In con­clu­sion, Oli, from a pow­er­ful prime min­is­ter, he may turn into a joke mas­ter in front of the Nepali peo­ple.
