As the country goes for yet another three-day holiday for Tihar, there are many issues making the rounds in the media. For one, the most gruesome case of genocide that occurred in 2008 is not moving toward resolution. The main suspect, Mohammad Aftab Alam, has been denying the allegation that he masterminded that criminal act. He is even claiming that the bomb explosion that killed people on the eve of first Constituent Assembly elections in April, 2008 did not occur at all. District court has remanded him in custody for one more week and there are genuine fears that the victims and eyewitnesses of the murders might be influenced by the culprits and their relatives.

Meanwhile, the government has arrested a rapper on charge of spreading offensive message through his songs. People are divided in favor of and against the police action. While a group of people has been arguing that government is trying to divert the public attention from the pressing issues by arresting the singer, others have stood in favor of the police action.

Nepali politicians have for too long promoted and protected contractors who should be in jail for delaying major infrastructure works. Sharda Prasad Adhikari is the perfect example of Nepal’s rotten political protectionism. Co-chair of ruling Nepal Communist Party, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, lives in Adhikari’s house in Khumaltar. Adhikari’s company Shailung-Aravali Infrapower JV secured a 15-kilometer Bhatkepati-Nagarkot road project some five years ago. The company bagged the contract by bidding 40 percent below the cost estimated by the government, and the project should have been completed in two years. Adhikari should be in jail for massive delays in the project, but he is being rewarded with ever more lucrative contracts. NCP Co-chair Dahal is one of many politicians who do the bidding for contractors and enjoy the kickback from them.
