Implementation of directives not satisfactory: SAC
Mar 29, 2017-
The State Affairs Committee (SAC) of the Legislature-Parliament has concluded that implementation of its directives given to various ministries and constitutional bodies “has not been satisfactory”.
The implementation status of SAC instructions to the ministries of general administration, home affairs and defence, and to the Election Commission and Public Service Commission is not satisfactory, states the SAC’s annual draft report that was unanimously endorsed by it on Tuesday. The draft will be tabled in the next meeting of the Legislature-Parliament.
The draft report adds that effective monitoring could not be carried out regarding the implementation of directives given by the parliamentary committee to different government agencies and subordinate bodies.
The draft has called for making Nepal Police, the Armed Police Force and the Department of Investigation more efficient in terms of training and resources so as to increase their competence as per the demand of time.
The draft has suggested amendments and revisions to the National Security Policy, transparent operation of the Nepal Army Welfare Fund and the provision for mobilisation of at least 10,000 soldiers during the time of the disaster, underlining the need of a policy to attract youths to Civil Service and a systematic replacement and transfer system there and restructuring of the Election Commission in line with the federal setup.
This is the first time the parliamentary committee has prepared its report since its constitution after the second Constituent Assembly elections.
It has formed a sub-panel to prepare the report.
