Nepal: After the election, most people’s representatives tend to forget their promises. Along with the promise, the commitment to develop at the community level has also been ignored.
Local level elections were completed on 30th Baisakh 2079. After that, the leadership of different levels of the municipality was decided. Keeping that in mind, the elected representatives are determined to fulfill their promises to the community. An example of that is Teklal Sapkota. He is the ward chairman of Kapilvastu Shivraj municipality ward number-3. He has completed one term as ward chairman before this.
Since assuming office after the election, he has promised to do the remaining work. In a period of about 10 months, most of the plans made by the ward office in the areas of development and construction at the community level have been completed. Even though it is a difficult area of the city due to its geographical diversity, the development has provided ease to the residents of the ward.
Apart from providing separate ambulance service for wards, free vehicles have been arranged for pregnant women. Keeping in view the problems of the service recipients who are far away from the ward office, a service center has been brought into operation in Baluhawa village.
Similarly, shallow tube wells are also available in every village in consideration of the farmers. The development will be helped by forming the village area development organization. Free firewood is also being provided for cremation. Khushilal Tharu, a local, says that the program to make thatched roof free by the ward has also been beneficial.
There is a plan of ward to give 200,000 once to the poor students from poor families to study technical subjects like doctor, engineer. Subsidies will be arranged on the basis of agricultural vegetables, fish, meat and milk production.
Likewise, preparations are being made to connect street lights and CCTV at necessary places in every village. Along with the construction of a playground within the ward, the ward’s goal is to protect and develop historical places that have archaeological tourism potential as tourist destinations.
Ward Chairman Sapkota said that the incomplete projects remaining in the previous term will be completed as soon as possible according to the commitment. He also said that he will gradually fulfill the commitments made to the public during this term. He said that he will leave no stone unturned to make the ward a model ward and that he is always ready to serve the people.
