  UML Can't Call PM 'incompetent' And Yet Stay In Government
    Weekly interview with Shekhar Koirala

While Nepali Congress and CPN-UML government has been a terrible failure in vital issues, including appointing 26 members and giving full shape to CA and heads in various constitutional bodies even after seven months, coalition partners are exchanging war of words. UML accuses Congress of ignoring seven-point deal and endorsing President and Vice-President through the Parliament. A section of Nepali Congress says the issue has lost relevance.

Some like Central Working Committee member Dr Shekhar Koirala has suggested UML might as well walk away if it is not satisfied with government functioning. What is cooking up between the two parties? How will NC-UML relation go ahead in the coming days? Mahabir Paudyal and Kosh Raj Koirala caught up with Dr Koirala Wednesday afternoon at NC’s Parliamentary Party Office, Singha Durbar.

  Nepal Can Be Promoted As Best Leisure Market
    Abhinav Narsingh Rana is the new general manager of Hotel Annapurna. Rana has more than two decades of experience in the hotel industry. Kriti Bhuju of Republica recently talked to Rana on different issues related to Nepali tourism industry as well as his hotel. Excerpts:

You have been recently appointed as the general manager of Hotel Annapura. What are your main challenges?

The main challenge for me is to preserve the prevailing hospitality culture. Besides, I will be focusing more on service with empathy as this is what our guests want. I will be focusing more on communication skills, both internal and external, as this directly enhances the guest experience at the hotel and creates unique impression. The guests can take back nothing except the memories and I want them to take home the everlasting memories at our hotel by providing them better service.
