    It’s the first time that i have heard from any representative in the C.A addressing the environmental issues at the national level.Though this kind of issues couldn’t make any important deal in the newly promulgated constitution of the country like Nepal where people are struggling basically just for their livelihood,apart from the political and economic aspects, its high time for every environmental conscious nepali youth to be concerned about solving the burning global environmental problems locally. Nepal should be efficient in solving the current and upcoming environmental hazards that could deeply affect the economy and health of the urban and suburban community. As nepal is not in the position of budgeting adequately in the environmental sector, it would be wise to adapt suitable national plans and policy so that we could have a safe environment that would’nt hinder the development of our nation. Particularly, in case of Gagan Thapa he could be the only conscious leading, youth icon for putting environmental issues as a major political agenda as a big sucess for us to see, at the present time.
