माधव नेपाल: दही च्युरे बाहुन

वाक स्वतंत्रता हुनुपर्छ तर सीके राउतलाई समातेको ठीकै हो भन्नुको मतलब के? यसो भन्नुको अर्थ के लाग्छ? माधव नेपालले वाक स्वतंत्रता हुनुपर्छ भनेर वाक स्वतंत्रता हुने भए माधव नेपालले वाक स्वतंत्रता गायब पार्नुपर्छ भन्ने भए वाक स्वतंत्रता गायब हुनुपर्ने हो। तर हुँदैन। वाक स्वतंत्रताको सवालमा माधव नेपाल एक जना irrelevant व्यक्ति हो भन्ने कुरा त्यसैबाट प्रमाणित हुन्छ। म वाक स्वतंत्रताको पक्षमा छु तर यो दही च्युरे बाहुनले मुख नखोलेकै बेस।

नेपालमा एमाले भन्दा घटिया, racist, prejudiced अर्को कुनै राजनीतिक पार्टी छैन। एमाले भनेको पहाड़ी बाहुनहरुले नेपालको राजनीतिमा अन्तिम हुइंया गर्न जाने ठाउँ हो।

State And Local Elections Before Monsoon 2015

It is imperative that the constitution is promulgated on time, and the state and local elections are held before monsoon 2015. The vacuum at the local level has been a great disservice to the country and its peoples.

Because federalism is still as controversial as ever, it is likely the geographical boundaries might be agreed to, but it might be best to leave the business of naming the states to the duly elected state legislatures. I have seen too many hyphens in some of the proposed names.

Federalism Is Cheaper Than The Unitary System

Federalism is cheaper than the unitary system in place, because federalism is a far more efficient way of delivering government services to the people. This whole idea that expenses will go up 10 times because there will be 10 new states is bizarre. It is even more bizarre because that argument is being pushed around by some otherwise very smart people.

Law enforcement is handled by states in a federal system. That means the central government budget for law enforcement will go down by at least 90%. The civil war has long been over but the bloated army has not been downsized. There is a 90% savings when you bring down the number of soldiers to 10,000 from its current 90,000.

Several ministries can be outright eliminated. A bunch can be brought together. All need to be downsized. I see a 50% cost saving if all this is done right. Why is there a separate Ministry Of Irrigation? Why is that not part of the Ministry of Agriculture?

  • Agriculture
  • Tourism
  • Defense
  • Education
  • Health
  • Energy 
  • Finance
  • Foreign Affairs
  • Home
  • Industry 
  • Trasportation
  • Science And Technology
  • Federal Affairs 
  • Information And Communications
These 14 ministries would be enough. All would be restructured. All would be downsized. All would be computerized. 

The state governments would generate their own revenues. The local governments would have their own budgets. What can be done locally should not be passed on to the state and central governments. What can be done at the state level should not passed to the central government. That is what federalism means. In this arrangement the efficiency goes way up. And that is why the costs come down dramatically. 

Toilets For The World's Poor

Bill Gates Names Winners of the Reinvent the Toilet
California Institute of Technology in the United States received the $100,000 first prize for designing a solar-powered toilet that generates hydrogen and electricity. Loughborough University in the United Kingdom won the $60,000 second place prize for a toilet that produces biological charcoal, minerals, and clean water. University of Toronto in Canada won the third place prize of $40,000 for a toilet that sanitizes feces and urine and recovers resources and clean water. Special recognition and $40,000 went to Eawag (Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology) and EOOS for their outstanding design of a toilet user interface...... One year ago, the foundation issued a challenge to universities to design toilets that can capture and process human waste without piped water, sewer or electrical connections, and transform human waste into useful resources, such as energy and water, at an affordable price. ..... Food and water tainted with fecal matter result in 1.5 million child deaths every year. Most of these deaths could be prevented with the introduction of proper sanitation, along with safe drinking water and improved hygiene. ...... “Imagine what’s possible if we continue to collaborate, stimulate new investment in this sector, and apply our ingenuity in the years ahead,” said Gates. “Many of these innovations will not only revolutionize sanitation in the developing world, but also help transform our dependence on traditional flush toilets in wealthy nations.”

10 States

With their names to be decided by their duly elected legislatures through majority vote. Their elections, along with local elections to be conducted before monsoon 2015. That is my proposition. The Election Commission is right that it should have the authority to decide on election timetables for local, state and national levels. Each parliamentary constituency to be split into two for the state elections. Do we keep the 75 districts or no? It might make sense to keep them.

पुर्ण आन्तरिक लोकतन्त्रका सस्ता तरिका

अनिश्चितकालीन मधेश बन्द अगर ५ दिनसे ज्यादा तक जाए तो माँग सिर्फ सीके राउतकी रिहाईकी नहीं रह जाएगी, बढ़ जाएगी। ये मधेसी क्रान्ति एक नए पार्टीका निर्माण करेगी: मधेस स्वराज पार्टी। उस पार्टीमें पुर्ण आन्तरिक लोकतन्त्र रहेगी, और पुर्ण आर्थिक पारदर्शिता। पार्टीके आयव्ययका पैसे पैसेका हिसाब पार्टीके वेबसाइट पर रखा जाएगा। पार्टीके भितरके प्रत्येक पदके लिए पार्टीके भितर चुनाव होगी।

वार्ड लेवलसे केन्द्र तक आप चुनाव ही कराते रहिएगा तो कितने बैलट छपेंगे? खर्चा कितना बैठेगा? कौन देगा खर्चा? एक तरीका है जिसमें खर्चा ही नहीं होता है। मान लिजिए पार्टीका महाधिवेशन हो रहा है। देश भरसे १,००० प्रतिनिधि जमा हुए हैं। पार्टी अध्यक्षके लिए ३ उम्मीदवार मैदानमें हैं। तो क्या करेंगे। उन १,००० लोगोको आप तीन गुटमें बँटके खड़े होनेको बोलेंगे। उम्मीदवार क के नाम पर ३५० लोग खड़े हुए, उम्मीदवार ख के नाम पर ३५०, और उम्मीदवार ग के नाम पर ३०० लोग, लेकिन नियम है कि पार्टी अध्यक्षके लिए कमसेकम ५०% वोट चाहिए। तो उम्मीदवार ग को पराजित घोषित किया जायेगा, और उनके ३०० समर्थकोंको तभी कहा जाएगा, अब आप उम्मीदवार क और उम्मीदवार ख में से एकको चुनिए। वो ३०० लोग चलके दोमें एक चुनेंगे। पैदल चलके मत डालेंगे।

बैलटकी कोइ जरुरत नहीं है। खुला लोकतन्त्र। ये एक भी पैसा खर्चा किए बगैर चुनाव करानेका तरीका स्थानीय लेवल पर और भी उपयोगी सिद्ध हो सकता है। वार्ड वार्ड में संगठन निर्माण करना है तो कैसे करेंगे नेतृत्वका चयन? ऐसे ही।
