Government will hold local level elections: Khanal
Prime Minister's Political Advisor Chakrapani Khanal has called for removing all the doubts over the prospect of the local elections that the government announced to hold on May 14.
Khanal made the remark after inaugurating the 3rd District Convention of the Young Communist League (YCL) Myagdi on Monday in Beni.
Stating that the government would hold the local elections at any cost on May 14, Khanal added that the government's services would reach the doorsteps of the people. "The services and facilities concentrated at the district headquarters will now be accessible for the people through the village council and municipalities under the federal set up, not only the facilities, but how the budgets of the villages and places are developed will now be in the hands of the people," he said.
He termed the local elections as mandatory to institutionalize the agendas.
Khanal further added that the government was making efforts to resolve the problem seen in Madhes.
He said PM Dahal was taking steps to unite mountains, hills and tarai and institutionalize the achievements following the big transformation.
Khanal, who was the deputy commander of the then People's Liberation Army (PLA), noted that the Maoists launched the people's war to establish people's rights. He said the objective of the Maoist agitation and people's war would be accomplished if the new constitution can be implemented.
The YCL – the sister wing of CPN (Maoist Center) – on Monday elected a new working committee in Myagdi under the leadership of Bhoj Bahadur Thapa aka Kumar. RSS

Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.
