Turbulence in Nepalese politics has been observed from time immemorial. It seems like any form of governance system will not be able to create political stability in Nepal. Nevertheless, political system and the multiparty system is the key achievement of democracy and as a democratic nation one way or the other, it is very imminent for us to find political stability for the prosperous and sustainable development of people and the nation.
Here are few things that can be done to maintain political stability in Nepal.
- Inclusion of "Educated Nepalese Citizen" in Nepali Politics. We have seen our aged politicians speaking in the mass, many of them show us a utopian vision, everyone remembers the popular statement that stated Nepal is going to be Switzerland in just a few years to come. Many years have passed and the situation has only worsened. There are many such statements to list. Our politicians speak of things that are unrealistic for now at least. This clearly shows their capability After all that you speak is your vision. Any tom, dick, and harry can talk and give speeches on democracy, marxism, and other political terms if fed with some material. Any uneducated man can talk and laugh using idioms on media, can disgrace his own people with racist comments but it takes a lot of knowledge and experience to draft the development of a country. Our politicians have certainly failed at each ladder of development and perhaps poor education accounts for it. An educational threshold must be set for political positions.
- Political Knowledge should be inculcated among the students. When I was in my tenth grade, almost all my friends had only one view of politics that, "Politics is a dirty game." Many of them still have the same viewpoint. How can a country like Nepal, get educated politicians if students do not get the slightest idea of the political situation here. Recently, more than 100 days of strike with a blockade at the Indo-Nepal shook the economy of our country. Many of us were just sharing the Facebook posts and tweeting "Backoff India" without pondering upon the "why" Question. Many people I knew were very aggressive on the issue on social media. When asked why did this happen or what are the demands, they went total silent. Students should be updated with the current political situation, this will not only broaden their vision on politics but also encourage them to write "Politician" on the aim field rather than scribbling "Nah, politics is a dirty game." This will definitely increase awareness among the youths.
- It has been seen that Nepali politicians have often used the caste and creed factor during elections. This is a very bad practice in politics. We should be electing people by the vision their party holds, the endorsements they have listed in their campaign, and their record on criminal cases.
- Minimizing Corruption: The symbiosis of political leaders, governmental officers, industrialists, and other people in authority is causing a rise in corruption. People these days get involved in politics just to make money in an illegal way. This culture certainly causes political instability.
