KATHMANDU – Rastriya Swatantra Party (RSP) president Rabi Lamichhane has unveiled a special programme for his electoral constituency coinciding with the 100th day of his election as a lawmaker.
He announced the Election Constituency Special Programme amid a function here today. In the Special Programme, Lamichhane has announced to operate a free bus service for women in his election constituency from today itself.
This bus will be called ‘Blue Bus’ as its colour is the same colour of the party’s flag. Only women can travel by this bus which will be operated in Chitwan constituency no 2. A card would be issued to those traveling in the bus. Dignity kits for women would be kept in the bus. A letterbox would also be kept in which the commuters can drop suggestions and their comments addressed to Lamichhane.
The RSP president has also announced providing employment within the country to 100 Nepalis now working abroad. He has made this announcement during the parliamentary election. Their monthly salary will range from Rs 40,000 to Rs 150,000. Similarly, the Special Programme states that public hearing would be conducted every four months and the first such programme has been scheduled for August 27.
A mobile clinic will be operated targeting the senior citizens above 65 years. A team of health workers including a medical officer will provide door-to-door service under this mobile clinic facility. Arrangements would be made to send a person to hospital in case advanced treatment is warranted.
Lawmaker Lamichhane said a health insurance scheme equivalent to Rs 500,000 would be launched covering the indigent citizens in the constituency under the Healthy Chitwan Campaign. One hundred individuals would be included in the first phase.
He also stated that Grade 11 and 12 in two schools would be developed as model school in the first phase. The Ramnagar Secondary School in Bharatpur Metropolitan City and the Chaturmukhi Secondary School at Kalika Municipality has been selected for this. This initiative would be gradually expanded to cover other classes and schools.
He informed that works have been started to developing the Basic School at Icchakamana into a model educational institution and a boarding school. The RSP lawmaker announced on the occasion that a team comprised of 20 volunteers would be mobilized, saying passengers faced various inconvenience along the Narayangadh-Muglin road section during the monsoon. This Rapid Action Team would be mobilized only during the monsoon season, he added.
It is also mentioned in the Special Programme that 54,174 saplings of fruits and other trees would be planted in his electoral constituency. He had garnered that much votes in the election to get elected an MP. One sapling per a vote is to be planted as mark of respect to the voters.

Lamichhane’s parliamentary seat had fallen vacant following the Supreme Court verdict against him in a case related to his citizenship. A by-election was announced in Chitwan constituency 2 after that and Lamichhane emerged victorious in the by-election too and today marks 100 days of his election.
