POKHARA: Various speakers expressed their dissatisfaction over the increase in corruption, irregularity, social crime, and inflation of late, at a programme in Pokhara on Monday.

During the press meet organised to inform about the seventh Central Convention of All Nepal Youth Association, a sister organisation of Rastriya Janamorcha Nepal (RJN), which is starting on May 3, speakers said that crimes have been increasing in the nation, encouraged further more by power and position.

In the same programme, Chief of RJN Province 6 chapter Shankar Baral accused the current government of not paying attention to the development and prosperity of the country. He said that the government is busy in power-play instead of fulfilling the basic needs of the common people.

Baral further claimed that due to the inception of federalism, the financial management between centre, province and local levels have become increasingly difficult, creating economic crisis, which has resulted into development work being stagnant or interrupted.

Likewise, speaking at the press meet, Tilak Thapa, central chair of All Nepal Youth Association said that the seventh convention would appeal to the government to introduce programme targeting the management of youth within the country. He further argued that the government should work to stop the youth force from leaving country.

Thapa informed that during the convention, the Association will issue Pokhara Declaration and publish various programmes protesting the federal system.

The convention that will take place from May 3 to 13 will be inagurated by Chitra Bahadur KC, Chairman of Rastriya Janmorcha Nepal and more that 500 representatives from 66 districts will participate, informed organisers in the programme.
