The Prime minister of Nepal, a country of peace and tranquility, rules over corers of people and enjoys immense power as the defacto head of the nation compared to the president who is only a de jure or nominal head. If I become the Prime minister by a stroke of luck, I’d exercise all the wide powers by improving the lot of the countries catastrophic and miseries. My first duty as Prime minister would be to form a capable and stable cabinet. I’d give more priority to the distribution of duties of the cabinet ministers. I’d make a list of the important problems.
Priority would be given to education, development of industries and agriculture besides tackling the problems of unemployment, poverty, corruption and over-population. My aim as Prime minister would be to make the society conscious of the evils. I’d try to create an atmosphere of sweetness and confidence rather than suspicion and hatred in the field of political activities. In this regard, I’d respect the views of the opposition. I’d match the mis-match of dwelling standard. My living standard will definitely be matched with the others those who live in slums.
I’d direct all ministers to cut their coats according to their cloths. At present, millions people don’t get enough two square meals a day and their children seem roaming in the streets in tattered cloths and bare feet, I’d make all these story of the past. Regarding the existing poverty would be alleviating ensuring genuine economic justice. Adequate food, shelter and employment would be exercised imposing heavy taxes on the countries affluent classes, who spend huge buck recklessly in 5-star hotel. I’d discourage those spend colossal money for solemnizing marriage.
I’d rather manage yearly medical check-ups and free medicines those who can’t afford the cost at all. My education policy would be universalizing of elementary education, launching total literacy campaign in a period of 5 years. I’d make education free of cost up to high school for both boys and girls. A voice “education no tension” or “each one teach one” would be a motto campaign through media to encourage one and all. Moreover, vocational and agricultural education would be promoted extensively across the nation.
I’d follow the policy of cooperation and friendliness among all the countries of the world. Currently caste and communal prejudices govern many decisions but I would let it sprout at any cost. I’d like to take a stern action and boycott viz. flatters, sycophants, hangers-on, smugglers, mafias, girl traffickers, black marketers, intermediaries of social evils. Freedom of press would be prioritized. I’d reform the administration of courts. Especial arrangement would be made for dispensing justice quickly and promptly.
Special attention would be given to landless, weavers, scheduled castes and tribes besides providing a special and permanent package to Rahute, Hariya and would be give steepened who have already attained 55 years and above. Since the established of true democracy is the basis of all round wellbeing of the people at large, I’d leave no stone unturned to eliminate the existing undemocratic practices. Equal rights for everyone-rich or poor, elimination of exploitation of labourers by capitalists would be boost up.
The would be constitution would be constitution would be drafted creating the elimination of impunity, exercising concrete consensus among all the political parties to render a genuine breakthrough for the progress and prosperity of the nation. If I were the Prime minister of Nepal, I’d try my best to solve the impasse of drafting new constitution conducting a round table conference with all the major and minor political parties to provide a penetrate for the development of the nation providing at least 50% facilities in each field for the women empowerment.
Family planning and small scale industries would be much more concerned during my tenure. Cozy conferences, symposiums, and much publicized seminars which cost much most but yield less would be lessened at an alarming rate I don’t know how far I shall be successful in my wish for giving the people the best I can but I hope me sincere attempts wouldn’t fail. THE END -Amrit pokhrel.
