Welcome declaration by Oli

  • Voice of the People

Sep 11, 2018-

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli is quoted on Saturday, September 8 to have ruled out the possibility of immediate reshuffling the Council of Ministers by stating in Kathmandu (‘PM Oli rules out possibility of Cabinet reshuffle’, September 8, Page 1) that nothing would change and no ministers would be changed if they continue good performance, at a program attended by Finance Minister Dr Yubraj Khatiwada, Minister for Federal Affairs and General Administration, Lalbabu Pandit, Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal, and Minister for Women, Children and Senior Citizen, Thammaya Thapa. I welcome the declaration by Oli. Instead of change of ministers, we need to change the rising corruptions at all of the agencies of the state by bringing effective laws to cure the cancer of corruptions. Anyone who is serving the government in any capacity that violate existing laws in their decisions and court-verdicts should be held accountable. A proper rule of law is the foundation of a civilised society. The country has long been held hostage by inactions towards those who have no disregard for rules and laws. Should this change, our society will change too and we will see people in office who have respect for their positions.

Peace is possible

It was indeed wonderful to read about the North Korean military parade on Sunday with no long-range missiles on display ( ‘North Korea holds military parade without missiles; September 10, Page 5). The parade focused on conventional arms, peace and economic development and this indeed is a welcome step. It shows that the North Korean leader Kim jong-un is committed to denuclearizing the Korean peninsula as agreed upon in his recent meetings with South Korean President Moon-Jae and in the much talked about summit in Singapore with U.S. President Donald Trump. New relations between the world and North Korea are possible only is sheds is belligerence and acts responsibly to help contribute to world peace. North Korea seems to be on its path to doing so. It should maintain the momentum.
