Common sense questions for Nepal’s rulers

Dear Rulers
You have been ruling us for some time now, some of you, for 5 or 10 or 15 or even 20 years now. So we want you to answer a few questions below.

  • Why are the hundreds of elected lawmakers needed when at the end only 3 or 4 politicians decide everything for them (through ‘whip’?
  • Why do you stop hydro-power companies from investing here, if you talk about hydro-power as a major export and development catalyst for Nepal? (we went more than 12 hours a day without electricity every winter for nearly a decade)
  • Why do you talk about democracy, when you issue “whip” to your 100’s of elected lawmakers, forcing them to vote along party leaders lines only?
  • Why do you talk about youths as Nepal’s future, when youths are clearly the “present” of the country? (82% of Nepali are under 40)
  • Why do you call other countries to help and beg for aid if you don’t want any foreign interference? (30% of economy runs on aid)
  • Why does Bagmati still stink when for over 25 years, there are 100’s of organizations and government bodies working to solve it?
  • Why do you talk about transparency when your parties don’t reveal who funds you and your election campaigns? and your decisions?
  • Why do you treat our remittance workers like third grade citizens, when they are responsible for billions of dollars income?(nearly a third of Nepal’s income?)
  • Why are more than a thousand Nepali stuck with marching out of the country every day for a job despite our two neighbors, India and China growing at phenomenal rate each year?
  • Why did you come together to launch a revolution in Nepal some years ago if “gaas, baash ra kapaas” (गाँस, बास र कपास” is still your slogan on random walls? Ask any consumer about the huge price rises (inflation) in the last 20 years? and the tax increases ?
  • Come again, Why do we Nepali need you anymore?

Thank you again for helping answer these questions.

A Nepali. (Insert your name)

  1. चोरहरुले देश बेचर सक्ने भए, एक रत्ति पनि पीर छैन उनीहरु लाई|
    लौन अब हामी केहि गरौ हाम्रै लागि, कति यिनको निम्ति आन्दोलन गर्ने, अब आफ्नै लागि उठौ!!!

  2. Dear leaders, you always said us that your party is going to make our country a developed one, but why donu2019t you think of developing the basic requirements first such as making education politics free zone, providing free technical and management education, working with universities and doing research and development ; providing basic health facility, sanitation and water facility, nutrition to our pregnant mother , brothers and sisters; and generating employment , providing environment to foster entrepreneurship, bringing youth and educated people in politics.
