Rhino from Nepal
CA panel lists jurisdictions of center, federal states Republica Provincial governments will look after provincial railways, highways, courts, provincial development projects, health services, land management, land revenue, protection and use of language, culture, script and religion of the region, forest and water resources in the province, agriculture, livestock development, trade and commerce, transport management, production and sale of alcoholic items, among others...... the local government will be responsible for primary and secondary level education. ....... National and interstate environment management, use of forests, wild animals, flora and fauna, mountains, water resources and national parks that spread across the provinces have also been included in the concurrent list.
Highways have to be maintained at both the federal and state levels. The major arteries in the country will have to stay under federal jurisdiction. The proposed East West railway line can not be the property of the future Madhes state. That will have to stay in federal jurisdiction. The same will have to apply to all the big hydroelectricity projects. The big rivers of Nepal are national property and belong to all Nepalis equally. If we do not make that clear in the constitution we are going to have major river disputes in the future between the states.
