Nayak vows to clean irregularities, corruption off judiciary

KATHMANDU: Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Ajaya Shankar Nayak expressed his commitment to improve judiciary in the country by controlling irregularities and corruption prevalent there.

Addressing journalists at an interaction in Bhaktapur on Sunday, Minister Nayak accepted that corruption was prevalent in all the state organs including the executive, the legislative and the judiciary and he was actively moving forward to control irregularities in courts.

Nayak also informed journalists that the government had been making preparations to hold three elections – local, provincial and federal - within the stipulated time. It would result into a constitutional crisis if the government failed to hold the elections within January 2018, he added.

Meanwhile, the CPN Maoist Centre leader also said that all political parties' support was needed to hold the elections.

Saying that issues raised by Madhesi parties were demands of all the Madhesis rather of a person, Minister Nayak focused on an amendment to the Constitution for implementation of a three-point agreement that the ruling coalition leaders CPN MC and Nepali Congress signed with the then agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front before forming the government.

He further claimed that an environment conducive to hold polls would be created after meeting agitating Madhesi parties' demands.
