Potential of federalism should be realized: Prime Minister

Kathmandu, 19 Feb: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal “Prachanda” has said that the immense potential brought about by the federal democratic system of governance should be realized into opportunities.

Speaking at the official ceremony held this morning to mark the National Democracy Day at Sainik Manch Tundikhel in Kathmandu, he emphasized the need to build a strong foundation for socialism while strengthening the federal democratic republic.

Nepal has to be upgraded from a least developed nation to a developing nation by 2030 and for this qualitative development in the gross domestic production is the responsibility of the state. “The traditional model of development will be reviewed to focus on manufacturing and job creation”, the Prime Minister said, “Creating employment opportunities will prevent brain drain.”

Stating that democracy is a system that builds the foundation for political, economic, social and cultural advancement along with people’s participation, Prime Minister Dahal expressed his belief that the democratic system in which the people elect their own representatives will create a basis for progress and development of the nation. ‘As the only alternative to democracy is progressive democracy, the solution to the limitations and weaknesses seen will be possible only within the system’, Prime Minister Dahal said, “With the strengthening of the democratic republic, effective implementation of federalism and the active participation of citizens in the state management process, people’s rights and livelihood can be strengthened along with a foundation of socialism.”

The Prime Minister noted that continuous development and sustainability of democracy is possible only with people’s sensitization and ownership. Public interest and welfare-based society can be built through rule of law, recognition and realization of human rights, gender equality, proportional inclusion, participation and social justice.
