January 11, 2012Mr Binod K. Chaudhary
Your article in yesterday’s Kantipur is very well articulated. Good job! I fully support your perspective.
I agree with you that there has to be full segregation between legislature and executive – MPs shouldn’t become ministers and ministers can’t be MPs.
Actually, in my considered opinion, one can easily find the root of corruption in politicos heavily investing in elections to become MPs with the sole intention of becoming ministers to recover “investment,” many times over. Therefore, I too have been advocating for an “apolitical” cabinet, not only for stability but to root out corruption, since a long time. My article on this vein was published in Nepali Times (#310) on August 11, 2006 and I have uploaded it in my website (www.RatnaSansar.com) which you can peruse by clicking the link below:
Similarly, Kantipur also published another article of mine on 29th Bhadra 2063 on this very issue which also I have uploaded in my website. You can peruse this article too by clicking following link:
