Budget discussion put off yet again

ASHOK DAHAL
KATHMANDU, July 31: Deliberation over Appropriations Bill scheduled to start in the parliament on Thursday has been deferred yet again due to objections from the main opposition UCPN (Maoist).

Though the discussions over the bill was originally set to begin from July 25, it had been delayed after the government failed to provide the budget books on time.
The budget books (red books) include all the programs and ministry-wise budgets allocated for various development regions, districts and local areas for the current fiscal year. [More]

  REVIEW The trap of enlistment  
  BY SEWA BHATTARAI  
 
The book begins with a lighthearted discussion among young ladies about returning Lahures and possible marriage with them. Indeed, such positive facets of Lahures like their desirability in the marriage market, their wealth, and their general aura, are their most talked-about aspects. But behind this façade lie many dark aspects that are often glossed over.

For example, Manoj informs that there are no formal rules or policy about the Nepali soldiers that the British army takes in. In other words, they can be dismissed at any point, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. This lack of formal understanding makes it easy for the British government to pay the Gurkhas lesser than their British counterparts: Nepali soldiers are paid approximately 20 percent of the regular salary.

  • NOC dispute takes new turn following SC ruling
    REPUBLICA
    KATHMANDU, July 31: While the dispute between National Sports Council (NSC) member secretary Yubraj Lama and Minister of Youths and Sports (MoYS) Purushottam Paudel eventually appear to have been resolved, a fresh dispute has emerged regarding the legitimacy of two separate Nepal Olympic Committees (NOCs).

    Sending its second letter to NSC, the verdict enforcement directorate of the Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the sports governing body to implement its decision. SC on July 2010 had given recognition to Rukma Sumsher Rana-led NOC. The other NOC was led by Dhruba Bahadur Pradhan and is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). NOC-led by Pradhan has officially been entrusted with making preparations for participation in the Asian Games as well.   [More]
