माइजु भान्ज काण्ड : भान्जा अनिस थापा को आफ्नैले क्याम्पस साथीले यसरी खोले चकित पार्ने रहस्य (भिडियो सहित)

KATHMANDU – Elected representatives of the local levels have started doing the rounds of Kathmandu, the federal capital, as they fear the federal government is making deliberate moves to usurp constitutional rights of local governments, rendering them toothless.They have expressed this fear at a time when provincial governments are accusing the federal government of trying to infringe upon provincial rights to centralise power.

Nepal’s constitution has clearly defined rights of federal, provincial and local governments. Schedule 8 of the constitution clearly mentions 22 absolute rights of 753 local governments. Based on this provision, laws have to be made accordingly by the federal and provincial governments so that they do not encroach upon local governments’ territory. “But the federal government has been working against the spirit of the constitution,” said Municipal Association of Nepal Vice-president Kabita Dhungana.

The federal government, for example, has initiated the process of rehabilitating district offices that look after education, health, agriculture, forest, land, livestock, industry and cooperatives, according to Dhungana. These district offices were earlier scrapped by the federal government. “But since their abolition the federal government has been dilly-dallying in transferring the work of these offices to local governments,” reads a statement handed over by elected local representatives to the PM today.
