2023 Apr 04, 17:38, Kathmandu

"Citizens are yet to feel the presence of good governance despite the government promises for the same," said lawmakers.

In a session of the National Assembly today, Krishna Prasad Poudel said, "Citizens are suffering unnecessary hurdles in course of seeking health, education, transport, passport services and in the revenue clearance. The Nepali society is plagued by poverty, illiteracy and mismanagement on a larger scale."

When will the sufferings of Nepali citizens find an end, he questioned.

According to him, there is an urgent improvement in bureaucracy. Only improvement among politicians is not sufficient to see positive changes in the public service delivery, it is prompt in bureaucracy as well.

Singha Bahadur Bishwokarma said cases of caste-based discriminations and untouchability continued to take place though it was unconstitutional. It may be noted that the fundamental law of the country promises to end discriminations relating to caste and all forms of racial untouchability.

As Bhiswokarma assessed, latest incidents pose a grave threat to inclusion, and proportional representation system achieved through the Dalit movements. It is urgent to implement the rights relating to Dalit guaranteed by the Constitution and the National Dalit Commission should be granted the status of a Constitutional body.

Narayan Prasad Dahal pressed the need for forging a national consensus to resolve nation's existing issues. The unity among political parties wishing to see changes is capable of giving a way out to the existing economic issue and concluding the remaining task of peace process. The government should win the people's trust through its services, according to the lawmaker who thinks that time demands the formulation of urgent federal acts to clear off confusions among three-tier government in course of the implementation of federalism.

Similarly, Suresh Ale Magar said ethnic sentiments were not addressed while naming of the Koshi Province.

Indu Kadariya expressed her concerns about the government not being able to be expanded in full-fledge 100 days into its formation. She also rued the situation of people not being changed despite the change of the governance system of the country.

Pointing out that the government should address aspirations of all people, Anita Devkota stressed the need for linking youths with agriculture, tourism and industry. She suggested the management of fertilizers and seeds for farmers at a time when monsoon is approaching.

Goma Devi Timilsina called for monitoring and regulating the market faced with the availability of inedible foods, and charging high against their set prices. Ram Chandra Rai urged the government to adopt preparedness to respond and fight increasing COVID-19 while underscoring the need for taking country's weakening economy in a positive direction.

Similarly, Nar Bahadur Bista praised the government for taking steps in saving the country from the global economic crisis.

Sharada Devi Bhatta and Bhuban Bahadur Sunar drew the attention of the government to end caste-based discrimination while Durga Gurung demanded that transactional justice be concluded as soon as possible.
