States be given security right: PAC president Shah


KATHMANDU: Parliament’s Public Account Committee (PAC) president Bharat Kumar Shah has said the responsibility of maintaining peace and security in the states should come under the purview of the state government.
Speaking at a face-to-face programme organised by the Reporters’ Club State 5, he was of the view that the centre should not try to practice monopoly over the issues defined constitutionally.
The federal government should be open to the constitutional provisions about the allocation of powers. “The chief district officer should remain under the subordination of state government.”
“Government’s centralised mentality has stoked up the level of dissatisfaction among the centre, state and local levels,” he said, underlining the need of normalizing the situation immediately.
As he said, there should be openness to allocate rights to the states in the federal system and the responsibility of state security should be under the state governments as in India and Pakistan. “There is a problem in the allocation of powers. The right to natural resources lies within the centre and it has increased the level of dissatisfaction in the state and local levels.”
Stating that arrears of 650 million was seen this year due to lack of transparent and systematic accounting system. Efforts are underway to address the issue.
