Feb 20, 2018-A joint task force of the CPN-UML and CPN Maoist Centre that was created to work out the Common Minimum Program (CMP) of the new government is reported to have recommended that every Nepali citizen benefit from health insurance (‘Oli govt’s priorities’, February 17, TKP Online). It is a pity that public health has been afforded the least importance by any government in Nepal till now. The Save Bagmati Campaign too has not made any plans to stop the direct disposal of night-soil and urine of millions of people living in the Capital into the Bagmati river. This disposal has made the river most unholy.
