Federal Alliance announces fresh protest programs

Posted by Anup Baral July 18, 2016 :
The Federal Alliance (FA), a political group which has decided to vote for the no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister KP-oli government, has unveiled its protest programs on Monday. A meeting of the FA held on Monday has decided to launch the protest programs starting July 20 until September 13. The FA, which is unhappy with the constitution, has announced its second phase of protest programs after the capital-centric protests it had started since the second week of May. The protest programs which are scheduled from July 20 until September 13 will be interactive, said Keshav Jha, a leader of the FA and spokesperson of the Rastriya Madhes Samajbadi Party. “We will hold as many as ten interaction programs during the upcoming protest program,” said Jha, “all these programs will be highway-centric.

Even though the FA has decided to vote for the no-confidence motion against the current government, the FA will not immediately join the government. If the Nepali Congress-CPN (Maoist Center) alliance makes commitment to fulfill our 26-point demand in writing with deadline, the FA will take part in the prime minister’s voting, Jha added. However, the FA will not join the government.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
