Nepal is going through a long phase of political instability and there is every likelihood that the instability will continue. On that course, Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai seems to be following the fate as all his predecessors. Despite political pressure created by two major parties, Nepali Congress and CPN-UML, there is no sign the prime minister will resign right now. Political instability, in the meantime, has affected the economic, social and development sectors. After the recent rainfall, Nepal's mid-western and western regions are devastated by floods, causing loss of property worth billions of rupees.  Nobody is there to listen to the voices of the people suffering from floods and landslides. The approach of rescue and rehabilitation is also very ritual and traditional. Instead of taking a long term approach, disaster management is confined to rescue and rehabilitation. In that context, we have decided to make the recent flood havoc as our cover story. Similarly, the political instability is also taking a toll on the INGOs sector. Despite the contribution of INGOs in serving the rural poor, the government is yet to take any major decision recognizing their role. Our coverage also focuses on INGOs with a peg in a recent interaction.
