SAC not satisfied with implementation status of its directives

Kathmandu, March 28: The State Affairs Committee (SAC) of the Legislature-Parliament has concluded that the status of implementation of its directives given to various ministries and constitutional bodies was not satisfactory.

The implementation status of SAC instructions to the ministries of general administration, home affairs and defence, and to the Election Commission and Public Service Commission was not satisfactory, states the SAC's annual draft report that was unanimously endorsed by it today. The draft will be tabled in the next meeting of the Legislature-Parliament.

The draft report adds that an effective monitoring could not be carried out regarding the implementation of directives given by the Committee to different government bodies and the subordinate bodies.

More, the draft suggested for making the Nepal Police, Armed Police Force and the Department of Investigation more capable in terms of training and resources so as to increase their efficiency as per the demand of time.

The draft suggested the amendment and revision to the National Security Policy, transparent operation of the Nepal Army Welfare Fund and the provision for mobilisation of at least 10,000 soldiers during the time of the disaster, underlining the need of a policy to attract youths to the Civil Service and a systematic replacement and transfer system there and restructuring of the Election Commission in line with the federal setup.

This is the first time that the SAC has prepared its report since its constitution after the second CA election. It has formed a sub-panel to prepare the report.
