CEC Yadav apprises PM of election preparations
Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhi Prasad Yadav has apprised Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal of the preparations regarding the local election on Friday.
Yadav reached the PM's residence at Baluwatar on Friday morning to inform the PM about the Commission activities and ongoing preparations to hold local level election on May 14.
During the meeting, Yadav and PM Dahal also discussed about enabling conducive environment for the election that has been long overdue.
Urging the PM for his positive intervention to help create political goodwill and mutual trust among the political parties, Yadav said, "The EC wants all the political parties, inside and outside the parliament, in the country to contest in the local level election."
Reaffirming the ECN's commitment for holding the constitution mandated election within the stipulated time, Yadav pressed for forging unity among the political parties by sorting out the differences to move ahead in unison for election.
He was of the opinion that all the Nepalis and the political parties must be able to feel ownership over the upcoming election.
PM Dahal, responding to Yadav, also reaffirmed his commitment to enable favorable political atmosphere for the election.
Among the issues brought to the knowledge of the PM include the number of work force to mobilize for the election and the ballot paper that is being published and maximizing the chances of holding election in some of the districts in Terai where Madhesh-centric political parties are protesting the election.

Why should we save the ethos of 2015 Nepali constitution?
While Nepal should address voices that question the constitution, it should not undermine the document’s dignity and longevity if the country wants to establish a constitutional culture. No constitution can fulfill all wishes. The drafters of the present constitution should not feel guilty in not securing the consent of all citizens. If the constitution is not fundamentally discriminatory, it has chances to grow further.
One Belt One Road: Prospects & Challenges
Nepal thus has to debate, discuss, analyze and then conclude the cost and benefits of the OBOR for its populace. The benefits of OBOR for Nepali economy are easy to understand, but the short, medium and long-term consequences are not simple, and thus require careful examination.
Dreams and drains
A water-filled ditch looks quite benign until someone lands into it. It was a case of extreme apathy on the part of the perpetrators as the girl paid up with her life for their neglect.
Govt apathy toward flood control
While some opine that, relief can be an option for providing an instant solution, the majority believes that Nepal needs a permanent solution to the problem. And the solution could be construction of dams and water reservoirs, which are the best instruments for flood control.

As busy and hassling as the traffic system in Kathmandu is, the Traffic Police here have to handle an equally strenuous job. Over 1,400 traffic officers in and around the Kathmandu Valley battle against the pestering traffic and air pollution each day.
Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
