I doubt that anybody that believes in good governance and corruption free society will oppose your idea to collectively demand “that, to begin with, the chiefs of all constitutional organisations be led by moral and ethical persons so that we henceforth get leaders that will transform their organisations -- and Nepal” with rare exceptions. Exceptions will comprise of people who aspire to garner wealth for “seven generations” by hook or crook once the position is “snared” by participating in the “bidding” process or those who are already made billions (a million is a very small amount for “these” people) by snaring position being the highest bidder.
I feel that appointments to all the high offices should be “vetted” by a process of public hearing; not the farce of hearing in parliamentary committee (that were enacted during last few years) where even one “yes” vote works as a “veto” in favor of the person’s appointment. This should ensure that “all constitutional organizations be led by moral and ethical persons” as you have appropriately mentioned.
It has become very important and also urgent. Simply because, if a the post of IGP is snared by the highest bidder, then that person would need to “recover” her/his investment as any such person would not have a printer to print notes or a tree to pick notes from, at home. Therefore, such a person will be trigger corruption exponentially. Let’s just reflect/ponder/contemplate about it for a minute and it will easily dawn on us that magnitude of corruption is a lot higher than people are complacent about.
There are people who urge not to be fixated with corruption but continue to “spend” on developmental work, which will be tantamount to pouring money in a bottomless pit. Therefore, it is incumbent on the likes of us to strongly raise voice about it in concert.

We get leaders we deserve, yes. Now let the likes of us collectively demand that, to begin with, the chiefs of all constitutional organisations be led by moral and ethical persons so that we henceforth get leaders that will transform their organisations -- and Nepal. We have living examples of how one man can do it as for example from the Supreme Court, Election Commission and the CIIA
