LC (KTM) September 26, 2022 0

Minister for Home Affairs Bal Krishna Khand has underscored on the need of adherence to the constitution for maintaining good governance in the nation. Addressing the souvenir publication launching and felicitation programme organized by Reporters Club Nepal Lumbini on the occasion of its fifth founding day in Butwal today, he said good governance would be promoted in society only if the provisions of the constitution are abided to.

“Let us pledge our allegiance to the constitution and follow good governance. Good governance cannot be had without adherence to the constitution,” the Home Minister reiterated. He said the government had brought the Citizenship Bill based on the constitutional provision that no Nepali citizen would be deprived of citizenship. It is unfortunate that hundreds of thousands of Nepalis are in a state of statelessness, he said, adding that the official who has to abide by the constitution has violated it.

“People are facing difficulty even to buy the mobile SIM card for not having the citizenship. Hundreds of thousands of Nepalis have similar story. Who will be responsible for this?’ he said. Noting that human development was possible by connecting the mind and heart, Home Minister Khand urged the people to make the right evaluation of the government and its leadership.

Minister for Internal Affairs, Law and Communication Tilak Ram Sharma said the role of the coalition government was not found effective in implementation of the constitution and urged it to work towards the effective implementation of the main law of the land in the days ahead.CPN (Maoist Centre) secretary Chandra Prakash Khanal urged the media to play proactive role towards guiding the politics to the right direction.

RSS former chairperson Bal Krishna Chapagain called on the media to disseminate investigative news of the functioning of the government and those occupying high posts. Reporters Club Nepal chair Rishi Dhamala said the Club is carrying out ‘mission journalism’ for republic and democracy.

Rupandehi-based journalist Ram Prasad Acharya and Rekha Bhusal, Dang district-based journalist Bijaya Ghimire and Tourism Division Office chief Mukti Prasad Pandey were felicitated on the occasion.
