Corruption in Nepali Congress Reaches Alarming Level
Former Prime Minister and Nepali Congress (NC) President Girija Prasad Koirala has expressed a profound concern over the indiscipline strongly prevalent within his party.
While talking to his party supporters, activists and journailsts in his home town Biratnagar in Easter Nepal, Koirala said, "I will get rid of indiscipline in the party. A special campaign will be launched to strengthen the party and it won't be possible without discipline."
Extremely hostile towards the Maoists, who have now headed the current coalition government because of their emergence as the largest party status in the April election, Koirala asked his party workers to be ready for safeguarding democracy that, according to him, is being destroyed by the Maoists.
After the collapse of the the then King-headed autocratic partyless Panchayat regime in 1990, Koirala and his family members have been in power most of the times.
His acknowledgement of the lack of discipline within his party is a proven fact.
Had there been discipline in the Nepali Congress, his party led by himself with overwhelming majority could punish several publicly convicted former ministers involved in corruption. A few of this party leaders were jailed after the state investigation into big corruption scandals; however, his party never removed them. Instead, he and his central committee defended the publicly accused leaders.
Moreover, his party gave candidature to such legally punished leaders, who were embarrassingly defeated by people in the election.
Previous records of Nepali Congress ministers in their heydays prove how indisciplined Koirala's party is.
