July 9, Kathmandu. Minister for Urban Development Ram Kumari Jhankri attended a meeting on urban policy organized by the ministry on Thursday evening.
But she herself has not been able to predict how long she will remain as a minister. Naturally, this has affected his work. From waste management in Kathmandu to urban development planning, Jhankri is in charge of the Ministry of Urban Development.
At present, cholera patients have been found in some places of Kathmandu Valley. Health and Population Minister Virodh Khatiwada said his party, the CPN-U, had decided to recall him 20 years ago.
Whether or not to have a minister in the ministry affects the overall work of the ministry. However, Minister Khatiwada said that there was no inconvenience in his regular work. “Regular work is being done, it doesn’t seem to be awkward,” Khatiwada told online news.
CPN-U has decided to recall the ministers in the government and send a new leader. However, the situation of the leaders who have come to the fore saying that only those who are currently holding ministerial posts will become ministers is in a dilemma as the cabinet has not been reshuffled.
If the decision of reshuffling the ministers of the Unified Socialists had been implemented, the new ministers would have started their work.
However, the decision of the party secretariat meeting to recall the incumbent minister and send a new one has not been implemented even after 20 days.
A meeting of the secretariat of the Unified Socialists on May 7 recalled Health Minister Virodh Khatiwada, Tourism Minister Prem Bahadur Ale, Urban Development Minister Ram Kumari Jhankri and Labor Minister Krishna Kumar Shrestha and recommended a new name.
The names of Bhavani Khapung, Jeevan Ram Shrestha, Metmani Chaudhary, Sher Bahadur Kunwar and Hira KC were recommended for the new ministers.
Chaos in decision implementation
At a meeting of the party secretariat held at the party’s office in Alok Nagar on Thursday, the leaders emphasized on the implementation of the decision to change the minister. For this, Chairman Madhav Kumar Nepal had to take initiative with Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba. The failure to implement the decision has been hotly debated in several meetings of the Unified Socialists.
After the secretariat meeting, Jagannath Khatiwada, head of the publicity department, told reporters that the minister would be reshuffled in an hour, not a day. “The only condition for the party to implement its decision is the party,” he said. But, very soon, we are moving in the direction of manipulating the ministers, not in days, but in hours. ‘
Khatiwada’s statement, which did not mean “who had personal discussions with whom and how much”, is aimed at the recalled ministers. Even the ministers who were recalled during the last meeting with the Chairman Nepal are reluctant to return.
Ministers Virodh Khatiwada, Ram Kumari Jhankri, Kisan Shrestha and Prem Bahadur Ale had reached his residence in Koteshwor on Wednesday evening to meet the President.
There they complained about being called back in the run-up to the election. According to an integrated socialist source, the party’s decision will be implemented but they have to be listened to.
They have put forward conditions such that ministers should be reshuffled only after the budget is passed by the National Assembly, non-parliamentarians should not be made ministers and those who have been given the responsibility once should not be repeated.
Dissatisfaction with Deuba
Dissatisfaction with Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has also increased saying that the party has not implemented the decision. Respected leader of the Unified Socialists, Jhala Nath Khanal, has repeatedly warned that he will leave the alliance if his decision is not implemented.
Leaders have also put pressure on Chairman Nepal to take initiative in the implementation of the decision in the secretariat meeting on Thursday. “After we have asked the Prime Minister to implement our decision immediately, this or that excuse may not be taken seriously at the next meeting,” said Deputy Secretary General Gangalal Tuladhar. Therefore, it has been raised in the meeting that the party chairperson should immediately talk to the prime minister and request for its implementation as soon as possible.
Leaders had expressed concern over what might have happened in the minds of those who were recalled and recommended for the ministry due to non-implementation of the decision for so long.
Tuladhar says, ‘Why the issue decided by the secretariat and approved by the standing committee is not implemented yet? What message is it sending? Our ministers to whom we are returning. Our ministers whom we have recommended to go. What kind of psychology do they have? ‘
Chairman Nepal is under tension due to the pressure of the leaders within the party that the decision should be implemented on the one hand and not on the other. Earlier, the recalled ministers complained to Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba and CPN-Maoist Central Committee Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda that the post was suspended until the budget was passed.
There is even outrage at the ministers who have been recalled to the Unified Socialists for trying to keep the prime minister as a minister by putting pressure and influence against the party’s decision.
Waiting for the oath
After receiving the recommendation of the minister from the party, five leaders of the Unified Socialists have been waiting for the oath for 20 days. Therefore, they are not touched by the fact that the oath will be taken today and tomorrow.
“It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post,” said Sher Bahadur Kuwar, who was recommended to the ministry. We are waiting to see when the party will reconcile and when the prime minister will call. ‘
Kunwar says that even the people’s activists started asking questions when the decision was implemented. “When activists go among the people, they say when is the oath, what is it,” he said.
Leader Jeevan Ram Shrestha, who has been recommended for the ministry, also said that he was waiting for the oath. “There is no such information as to when the oath will be taken,” says Shrestha. “We are waiting. This is more of a political issue than a personal one. Everyone understands this. ‘
Shrestha is also dissatisfied with the delay in the implementation of the decision. “The decision has been delayed,” he said. The leadership of the government has to implement it. All this should not be taken forward by the Prime Minister. Everything is over on behalf of the party.
