Transportation halted over route permit allocation row in Gorkha

NARAHARI SAPKOTA
GORKHA, July 28: Protesting the decision to allocate route permit only to those who are close to political parties, transportation labor unions here in the district have enforced the transportation shut down on Monday.

Transport laborers halted all the vehicles playing on long and short routes after the District Transportation Management Office allocated the route permit only to political leaders after District Transportation Operator Council added 32 more vehicles some two week before. [More]

Time and again we hear of top leaders going abroad for medical treatment on state-funded expenses. Should there be a cutoff on how much the state spends on its sick leaders? The Week asked a few people for their take on the matter.


The budget for leaders´ treatments should definitely be limited. If they have to go abroad for health treatment, why can’t they go to Singapore or Bangkok where the health treatment is cheaper than, say, in the US or Europe?

Besides, the trend of leaders going abroad for health treatment points to the shoddy health system at home. Leaders should get their treatment in Nepal because that’s what the general public does. And for that, they will first of all need to improve the health system at home. This will also have the benefit of developing the health sector.
