People power



KIRAN PANDAY

The country is in a state of uncertainty due to the failure of political parties to reach a consensus. Failure to elect a prime minister despite numerous attempts has made people question the competence of the political parties and pushed the nation towards becoming a failed state. The parties, instead of working for the people and the country, are busy soliciting their own interests. They have neither budged from their stance nor sought any alternatives to unlock the deadlock. People are frustrated to see their elected representatives engrossed in power play rather than working towards drafting the constitution on time. Five months have gone by since the term extension of the Constituent Assembly and nothing substantive has been achieved so far. It is very unlikely that the constitution will be ready in the stipulated time.

The biggest challenge for now is the budget. It's not only the day-to-day work of governance that has been hampered due to the delay in its presentation, businessmen and economists are predicting an economic disaster.

We, the people, always complain about how leaders are incompetent but never actually do anything to force them into fulfilling their obligations towards the country and the people. Until we remain silent in the face of their wrongdoing, the leaders will continue cheating us. That's why it has become necessary for civil society to take charge. It is now up to the people to make the leaders understand their duty towards the country. It is now the people's responsibility to exert pressure on their elected representatives to draft the constitution on time.

This is staple drivel. 

Now people are supposed to make up for the fault of these fools. Instead of taking care of their own families, their own affairs, they are to walk out as part of a mob and install the same sort of people who are in power now. Dying in the process when fearful policemen shoot to save their own lives and maintain order. Meanwhile, the great literary clowns would sit in their offices, writing great works of editorials.

This is your problem Mr Editor, you fix it yourself. People know how to take care of themselves.
