Election Menifestoes of Political Parties [General Election-2056]

The Nepali Congress Manifesto: Highlights

Nepali Congress Party is the representative party of Nepalese people who believe in the cause of nationalism, democracy and socialism. Since its genesis in 1947, the party has fought many a battles against the hereditary Rana Regime and autocratic Panchayat System, and remained in the forefront for the establishment of multiparty parliamentary democracy and for safeguarding human rights, freedom, equality and justice to the Nepalese people. The Party has made many sacrifices in fulfilling historical responsibility to establish and consolidate democracy by leading the 1950 (2007B.S.) and 1990 (2046B.S.) revolutions successfully.

Having been throough five decades' of democratic movement, the Party, as guided by its leaders, the late Bisheswor Prasad Koirala, Subarna Shumsher and Ganesh Man Singh, avows to uphold its deep commitment to protect and promote the parliamentary multiparty democracy, good governance and Constitutional Monarchy and basic rights of the people by strengthening freedom and championing the cause of national unity and dignity.

The party holds the conviction that multi-party democracy must be pivotal to the political freedom, decentralized system of governance, elimination of discrimination and prejudice between men and women, haves and haves-nots, the powerful and the helpless and upper and lower castes. It believe also in the balanced development of different languages, cultures and traditions, high respect for the individual dignity and peace and fearless society, economic prosperity and social justice.

At a time when the world is about to enter the 21st century, the Nepali Congress believes that the nation must accept the challenges to be confronted in future. For this, the party will concentrate all its attention towards the swift transformation of socially and economically backward Nepal into a prosperous and developed nation by eradicating illiteracy, poverty, unemployment, corruption and ever--growing prices.

Democratic Socialism: Ways to Economic prosperity and social justice:

In its search for a society based on equality and justice, the Nepali Congress adopted the principles of the democratic socialism and decentralization in 1957. The Party firmly believes that with the implementation of the balanced democratic socialistic programs, the society can achieve the economic prosperity through the fair distributions on the basis of equality and social justice. The party will remain alert to take the fruits of prosperity to every layers and households of the Nepalese society.

Economic Freedom and Role of Private Sectors:

The Nepali Congress is convinced that in accordance with the rule of the country, the private sectors should also benefit from the opportunity of economic freedom without any hitches. The private sectors should be promoted to play a vital role in the growth of national economy and in creating new employment opportunities. The government in this regard will provide opportunities to private sectors in the economic activities for the development of socio-economic infrastructures to guarantee the social justice and security to the hapless and deprived masses.

People-oriented Development:

Since the first and ultimate goal of the development is the upliftment of the people, the Nepali congress assumes that the target of our development should be people oriented. To do so, the party gives emphasis on the opportunities for education, skill development, training and rights to information, extension of health services, a strong national campaign against eradication of poverty, ways to increase the employment and income generation to the Nepalese people. The party also emphasizes respect for the individual freedom, dignity and opportunity for works based on their skill and capacity, decentralized administration and development of local leadership, uncorrupt administration. The party also gives importance for instilling self-confidence and social services in every Nepali citizen.

Background of the Upcoming General Election:

Instability wreaked havoc on the national politics over the past four and half year. Political parties indulged in the unhealthy and non-political practices to gain power. Governments collapsed because of the parliamentarians' unethical ways to ride the power ladder which tarnished their own images.

The Governments remained shaky due to the nature of hung parliament where no parties could enjoy a majority. The development works and free and impartial administration in the country were disturbed. Polarization and groupism among and within the political parties raised its ugly head in the national political scene. The CPN-UML disintegrated into two parties and the Rastriya Prajatantra Party and Nepal Sadbhavana Party also followed the suit. The leaders of these breakaway parties cried for the head of their erstwhile party colleagues.

At this backdrop of national politics, corruption, poverty and unemployment reigned supreme in the width and breadth of the country. Terrorism and violence in the name of Maoism, centered against the Nepali Congress, aims at overthrowing the constitutional parliamentary democracy in the country. The Nepali Congress thus decided to call for a fresh mandate believing that the people's mandate is the only way out to relieve the country from these anomalies, perversion and chaos.

Main Agenda for the Forthcoming Election:

The coming general election is a process to do away with the irregularities and anomalies like horse-trading, corrupt, irrational and aggressive attitudes among the politicians that surfaced on the national political scene. The people, being disgusted with all these political perversions, are opting for a strong and vibrant parliament with a strong government to stop the vagaries of a coalition government. The Nepali Congress wishes to fulfill the Nepalese people's aspiration for a majority government and brings the major agenda for the coming general elections that are as follows:

The Nepali Congress wants to put an end to the political instability in the country that ensued after the formation of the hung parliament. The most important agenda for the coming general election is the formation of a Nepali Congress's majority government.
Politics based on norms and values to curb undemocratic and unparliamentary behavior among the politicians.
Continuation of the economic policy and programs initiated by the Nepali Congress government formed after the 1991 general election. Even the international community has supported these programs meant to uplift the condition of rural masses and eradication of poverty.
Freedom from corruption and Mafia rule to end the economic leakages, smuggling, black-marketing and corruption from the every layer of the Nepalese society.
Initiation of a free, impartial and efficient administration by putting an end to the political interference on the day to day administration, judiciary, police, public and education service sectors.
Guarantee for the peace and security for a fearless society by ensuring an end to the politics of murder and terrorism in the country in the name Maoist movement. We are convinced, at this juncture, the Nepalese people will reject the politics of murder and terrorism and cast their votes in Nepali Congress's favor.
Clean and Efficient Parliament:

It has become a need of the present time for any government to translate the people's aspiration for a clean and efficient parliament into reality. It may be recalled that after the second general election, the minority CPN-UML government formed with the support from Nepali Congress grew more and more despotic. The issues of national interest were undermined, and due to the nature of hung parliament, parliamentarians spent much of their time in unparliamentary practices leading to the loss of faith of international community in Nepalese polity. However, the Nepali Congress, in recent past, developed a mutual understanding and an atmosphere for cordial relation with other political parties. This sense of cordiality and mutuality allowed the party to call for the fresh general election to restore the Nepalese people's and international community's faith in our Parliament. The Nepali Congress will continue its endeavor to make the Parliament cleaner and more efficient in the days to come.

Nepali Congress's Achievements:

The government formed after the 1991 elections and other Nepali Congress led governments formed after 1994 has secured milestones in achieving economic prosperity thereby transforming the socio- economic conditions of the economically and socially backward Nepalese people.

Keeping in line with globalization process of the world and neighboring countries, the party's all endeavors will aim at mobilizing the resources, capitals, technology and management skills to attain its goal of national prosperity through increased production and incomes. After the formation of the new Nepali Congress's majority government following the general election, the programs and policy of the party will create an atmosphere that will bring the socio- economic transformation among the Nepalese people.

National Prosperity:

The Nepali Congress will also aim at improving the revenue collections, minimizing expenditures and will increase incomes from tourism, water resources, forest and agriculture. It will create opportunities for employment by expanding the industrialization and economic process and invite NGOs and private sectors to participate in economic activities based on the liberal economic policy. The friendly atmosphere for the national and international investment will quicken the nation's economic growth process. With the rapid growth of nation's economy, the party wants to raise the per capita income of the Nepalese people to the level of 700 US dollars within the next twenty years.

Revolution in Agriculture:

Modernization and introduction of new technologies in the agriculture are needed to uplift 80 percent people living on agriculture. The Nepali Congress has formulated a 20-year Agriculture Policy in order to increase the agriculture production. It has also brought into effect the five-year plans to raise the agriculture productions there by developing the conditions of people depending on agriculture.

Development of Water Resources:

In the past years, the Nepali Congress, under its programs to harness the country's massive water resources to its optimum level, has invited the investments from private, national and foreign agencies. Because of this, eight major projects have already been under way, which will generate about 320 mega-watt power. To maximize the benefits from our water resources, the party believes in the use of water from the Karnali, Mahaklai, Koshi and Gandaki rivers to produce electricity, which can also be sold to neighboring countries, and can also be utilized as means of water transportation and irrigation. The Nepali Congress accepts the Treaty made with India on the use of Mahakali River's water for it would be in the interests of Nepal and its people. The Nepali congress will also give emphasis on the smooth completion of West Seti and Pancheswor water projects and will attempt to invite foreign investment on major projects on the Koshi and Karnali. However, the party will uphold the national interest while inviting foreign agencies for investing in Nepal's water resources.

Improvement in Revenue Collection and Economy in Expenditures:

The tax collection system will be expanded and will be made more simple, efficient and transparent. The system of VAT will be free from duality, bureaucratic and administrative hassles. The party will effectively control unnecessary and unproductive public expenditures.

Industry, Tourism and Commerce:

Owing to the liberal economic policy of the Nepali Congress government, programs to initiate the development of industry and, commerce have gained a new height as the national and foreign investments have been increased tremendously in these sectors. Likewise the diverse and unique geography, natural, ethnic and cultural variations of the nation have opened the possibilities for rapid development of tourism too. In future, the party will put its emphasis on the development of industry, commerce and tourism through the participation of private and non- private sectors.

Revolution in Education:

The party, which has made the education upto 10 grade free of cost, will raise the standard of lower and higher education as per the need of the changing time. It will make primary level education available for all children, raise the number of school going children by hundred per cent, take the rate of literacy to 70 per cent from the current 48 percent and will reduce the discrepancy in the standard of the public and private schools and colleges.

Public Health Services and Population Management:

The party will provide primary health services at all parts of the country by producing more than eighty thousands women health assistants within the next five years, and free medicines will be provided to the people by establishing health posts in all the village development committees by next two years.

Reduction in Regional Imbalance:

Because of the difficult geography of the country, the northern and some inner terai parts of the country and its people have been lagging behind in the development process. A need has been felt for the reformulation of the political and administration structure in the districts where the more apparent of fruit of developments like motor roads, electricity, drinking water, health services and telephones are yet to reach. In this regard, the special development programs for 25 high mountain districts will be brought into effect to correct the imbalance in the development process in the country's different regions.

Distribution of Citizenship:

The Nepali Congress will effectively work for the process of distributions of citizenship that will be made simpler. The problems concerning the distribution of citizenship will be no more in the next five years.

Use of Foreign Assistance:

As the internal resources are not sufficient for economic progress of a developing country like ours at a time when the world economy is experiencing stiff competition, the Nepali Congress will aim at inviting multinational companies, more foreign grants and unconditional loans to launch the all-out development process of the country. However, the party thinks that these aids should not create hindrances in mobilizing internal resources, skills and technologies.

Forest Conservation and Development:

The programs concerning the establishment of the forest product based industries will be brought and implemented to make the forest resources an important ingredient to national incomes. The management in sanctuaries and conservation centers will be made more efficient and the production of medicinal herbs will be promoted.

Environment and City Housing:

The planned housing system programs and the works for the disposal of wastage of the Kathmandu valley and other cities will be executed effectively. The works on road maintenance, electrification and preservation of cultural and religious sites will also be implemented effectively. A powerful authorized body will be formed to implement these programs in an integrated way. The same authority will also control the pollution and manage the conservation of environment in Kathmandu and other places.

Employment to Every Households:

To reduce the level of half-unemployment per cent from current 47 percent and full-unemployment from the five per cent, the party will fully implement its" Employment to every household" program and create new employment opportunities in agriculture, livestock, forest, tourism, cottage industires and also industries based in Nepal and abroad to pull two-hundred thousands poor family above from below the poverty line.

Development of Transportation:

The party that mobilized national and international cooperations to build the motorable roads in the past will aim to build roads that will reach the headquarters of each district. To fulfill these requirements, the party will build about eight thousand motorable roads in next five years.

Information Technology and International Finance Services:

The Nepali congress accords its highest priority to the development of information technology and aims to develop the sector with a view to create employment opportunity to 20 to 25 thousands people and to export software products worth billions of rupees. Private sectors will be awarded the chance to run the pagers and other system while Internet and E-mail facilities will be made available for most of citizens. The infrastructure for the information Technology Park will be completed within next year. Meanwhile, due to our advantageous geographical position from where countries of the east and West can be contacted at the same time and increased facility of information technology, Nepal will also be developed as the center for international finance and banking.

Eradication of poverty and rural development

A national volunteer service program for the eradication of poverty and rural development will be launched to facilitate villages, where large number of Nepalese reside eking out their living from agriculture, with roads, electricity water and telephone services. Assistance will be provided to rural masses to run their own agriculture based enterprises. A Poverty Eradication Fund will also be established that will facilitate an integrated development of rural housings and sanitation programs. With this Fund, the villagers will be able to get the employment as per their skills and capacities.

Science and Technology:

Judiciary:

The process of appointments for the nation's constitutional bodies will be made more transparent in order to assign more honest and capable people to these posts. If necessary, laws and by-laws will be reformed to make judiciary more efficient and expeditious. The enactment and effective imposition of laws to curb the rampant corruption will become a reality. Regarding the declaration of assets, legislation will be brought effectively to make it necessary for all those enjoying government facilities to declare their assets each year.

Good Governance and Decentralization:

The Nepali Congress is firm to make the present lavish and cumbersome administration more people oriented, transparent and responsible for the benefit of every people. As a result, the useless and unproductive government expenditures, which are the result of perversions and corruption in the administration, will almost end.

The Nepali Congress is against the politicization of and political interference in bureaucracy. It will act immediately and effectively on the recommendations made by the Congress-installed high level Administration Reformation Commission in order to allow civil servants to work in a free and impartial manner. Since decentralization of power and to local bodies of governance is an important aspect of good governance, the party will accord important priority for the decentralization of power to the local levels and effectively bring forth policy to launch " Rights of Villages to the Villages" to make VDCs and other local bodies of governance more autonomous and efficient..

Information and Communication:

The Nepali Congress is committed to the people's rights to the information. In this regard the means of communication will be run in an impartial, transparent and creditable manner. A policy will be formed to make media more dignified, independent and responsible through the healthy competition among private sectors. Moreover, about four hundred thousands telephone lines will be distributed within the next five years and all villages will be equipped with the telephone lines by next two years. Mobile telephone service will be made more widespread.

Maoist Terrorism and National Responsibilities:

The Nepali Congress that believes the Maoist violence is an outcome of alliance between extreme leftist and extreme rightist and is meant to weaken and undermine the democracy in the country. The party, in order to defeat the politics of violence, will attempt to forge an all-party consensus and will bring forth effectively special programs to develop the socio-economic conditions of the people of the Maoists violence ridden districts. The party will provide employment to the family members and education to orphans of those killed by Maoists.

Social Security and Justice:

The Nepali Congress, in consonance with its principles to make Nepal a welfare state, will provide support to the socially, economically and physically weaker sections of the population so that they can live respectful lives. The programs to help the elders, handicaps, hapless and deprived will be made more effective and the uncertainties seen in the distributions of pensions to senior citizens and widows will be put to an end by taking the distribution of pensions to the doorsteps of our elderly citizens and widows.

Regional Economic Cooperation:

The globalization process and stiff competition in world market have also led the Nepali Congress to be convinced of the necessity of the regional cooperation in South Asia. In this regard, the party wants SAPTA to be implemented as soon as possible to the economic development of this region.

Non-Government Organizations:

The open policy regarding the NGOs because of their important role in the country's development will be continued in future.

Development of Cooperative Movement:

In the country like ours where most of the people indulge in agriculture for their livelihood, cooperatives should be encouraged and assisted to develop the rural economy. The Nepali Congress is in favor of establishing a separate cooperative ministry and rural banks to boost the cooperative movement in the country.

Sports Development:

The party will continue to give an impetus to the National Sports Policy and promote the idea of holding different national and international sports events to help develop the sports in the country. It will take initiation in establishing sports development fund and open up national academy for sports.

Language, Literature, Arts, Culture and Religion:

The party will avow itself to preserve and promote the language, art, culture and religion that reflect the national identity of Nepal and its people. The Royal Academy, which looks after the promotion of literature, arts and culture and its activities, will be made more effective. People dedicating their lives to the promotion and preservation of arts, culture and literature will be honored with public felicitations. The religious freedom of minorities will be preserved.

Foreign Policy:

The Nepali Congress is committed to the United Nations Charter. Since our foreign policy is based on the principles of democracy and human rights, the party wants to develop the friendly relations and mutual cooperation with neighbors and world's peace loving countries keeping in mind these two of its basic ideals.

The Nepali Congress gives special importance to Nepal's relation with its two Neighbors--China and India--and embraces the policy which underlines that any misunderstanding between our two big neighbors should be resolved through the mutual trust, friendly and practical attitudes rather than by aggressive and exciting approaches.

So far as the problems between Nepal and India are concerned-- whether on the issues of Indian army's deployment in the Nepal's Kalapani area, or the Mahakali River Treaty and the agreement on the implementation of its projects, or the 1950 Treaty--the Nepali Congress has the policy of resolving all these problems through diplomatic dialogues by keeping intact the Nepal's national interests, sovereignty, integrity and dignity.

The Nepali Congress's endeavor to play peacekeeping role in the world has led its majority government to send a record largest contingent of Royal Nepalese Army personnel in Nepalese history to the UN's peacekeeping efforts.

However the party now thinks that the UN's structure and programs should be modified in accordance with the changing world sitaution. The party also believes firmly that disarmament and peace are the two vital prerequisites for the social development, therefore the rich and developed countries should not import arms into the poor countries rather they should transfer their technology for the socio-economic development of the poor countries.

Regarding the issue of Bhutanese refugees, the party strongly supports the idea that the refugee must get the opportunity to return their homeland respectfully and peacefully. The party will remain active in making the effective and result-oriented diplomatic dialogues in order to immediately create an atmosphere so that the refugees can return home sooner than possible.

Empowerment of Women:

The Nepali Congress will remain in the forefront for eliminating the gender discrepancy against women and will accomplish national and regional programs to bring the women in the national mainstream. Laws will be enacted to check the exploitation, violence and crimes against the women who will also be benefited by the party's other programs such as promotion of women education and reservations in civil service posts..

Children's Development:

Programs regarding protection and development, participation of children as well as establishment of centers for their rehabilitation, facility for guardian's education will be launched and implemented more effectively. Centers for child cares and rehabilitation for street children will be established.

Ex- Army Men and Policemen:

To facilitate the ex-army and police personnel economically, they will be provided with the training and skill development programs. The party will take initiation in increasing the pensions and other perks for British Gurkhas and ending the problems faced by ex-army personnel while requesting the visas in the different embassies and diplomatic consulates.

Youths and Students:

The Nepali Congress will declare a national policy on youths and students for the achievement of their all-round development and will establish a national youth employment center to end the youth unemployment.

Trade Union Movement:

The party will effectively implement the labor and trade union act and will attempt to refine them in case the act will show the shortcomings. It will forge a national consensus in the passage of the laborers' social security bill in the Parliament.

Indigenous People:

The Nepali Congress is firm to promote and preserve the diverse indigenous people and their arts, cultures, language and religions. To develop the overall conditions of indigenous people, the party will establish an autonomous council which will be different and powerful from the present indigenous people's Development Committee.

Downtrodden and Deprived People:

The downtrodden and deprived section of society must represent fairly in the process of nation's political decision and their participation is a must in the Parliament and other institutions. The party will bring a bill to the all-round development of the underprivileged. A provision will be made for the fair representation of these people in the different hierarchy of the Nepali Congress.

Nepalese Living Abroad:

The party will remain active in the protection of rights and interests of Nepalese living abroad and will commit itself to help foreign-based Nepalese to benefit themselves from the rights and facilities of the particular country they are living into. Moreover, If those living abroad wish to send their incomes to Nepal, they will be facilitated with the efficient banking systems.

Civil Servants Teachers, Army and Police:

To preserve and protect the well-being and interest of the civil servants, teachers, army and police personnel, the party will take exceptional cares in modifying the present remuneration and other perks and facilities in accordance with the changing necessity. Special training will be provided to them to their professional uplift and effectiveness. A work-plan to increase the skills and performances of army and police will be implemented.

Dear brothers and sisters,

The preservation and protection of the democracy is still the main agenda of our national politics. In a poor country like ours, democracy and economic development are two major political and economic movements. The Nepali Congress that espouses the cause of protection of democracy and economic development enjoys the deep and ample faith and support of the people. The party, which felt responsible through experiences obtained from the five-decades' struggles, has brought its commitment, policy and programs to the people through this manifesto.

The Nepali Congress is the only party that will protect the country from the disintegration, murder, violence, terror and chaos and has the determination and strategy to save the nation from political instability and dishonesty, corruption, Mafia rule and. It has the policy and programs to bring the parties like UML, ML, Rastriya Prajatantra Party and Sadhvabana Party that broke away in recent past at the single forum to make the national consensus and unity among all these parties. The Congress, that enjoys the edge over its rival political parties in garnering faith and support of international comminutes, has the blueprints for the overall national development. Thus, this Manifesto is a distinct document for our nation's bright future and progress.
