Kathmandu, April 26

The ruling Rastriya Prajatantra Party on Wednesday made its local level election manifesto public, in which the party has assured that it will make every municipality “smart city” in next 10 years.

Organising a press meet in Kupandol of Lalitpur today, the party Chairman and Deputy Prime Minister Kamal Thapa launched the manifesto with ambitious plans.

The party said it would make all local bodies independent and well-managed.

The RPP said if elected, the party would spend 20 per cent of the total budget of the local government in the education sector. Education upto the secondary level would be made free.

Likewise, the party assured that schools would be freed from all political activities as no party would be allowed to open chapters of its sister organisations at schools.

The party said every local body would have at least one 25-bedded hospital. Cancer and kidney patients would be provided with Rs 100,000 support for treatment.

The RPP has planned to appoint two female community health volunteers in every ward and manage health insurance of every citizen within next five years.

The party introduced the slogan of “One family: One employment” whereas local tax would be waived for next 10 years for enterprises providing employment to more than 25 persons.

Likewise, every household would be provided with electricity and drinking water facilities, it assured.

Similarly, every local body would have a children’s park whereas the construction of stadiums and covered halls would also be prioritised.

Small-scale hydropower and solar power projects would be subsidised.
