Kathmandu, December 6, 2016: Youth Initiative(YI), a youth led NGO, is set to host backward rally to mark International Anti-Corruption Day on December 9. The major theme of the rally is to satire on â€˜How the country is going backwardâ€™ due to high corruption rates in Nepal.
“Corruption has been the pressing challenges of our generations. From the time of Ranas period to Shah Period and now in republics days, the concentration of corruption has been unchallenged. Naively speaking, corruption is like culture and it has become the religion of every young people who goes to Government jobs after passing Public Service Commission exams. Corruption is growing with no doubt under the veil of politicians, businessman, and top level bureaucrats,” says YI in a statement. “These â€˜big brothersâ€™ are indirectly promoting the plutocracy, which is feeding the lattice of â€˜exploitersâ€™ and their nobles. These â€˜exploiters â€˜are the dark side of our fragile democracy and every Nepal has â€˜nightmareâ€™ of corruption when they go to bed after watching TV,” the statement adds about the situation of corruption in Nepal, and thus the necessity to organize the event.
The rally will begin from Shanti Batika, Ratnapark at 1 PM, and will proceed to Nepal Academy Hall in Kamaladi.
Around 500 youths are expected to joinÂ the rally.
The event will have public talk session by various personalities including Rabindra Mishra, Editor, BBC Nepali Service and founder, Help Nepal Network and Abdus Miya, President, Youth Initiative, among others.
The programme will also have spoken word poetry sessions to entertain the participants. Added to this, the rally will join a Solidarity Signature Campaign against corruption.
