Local Self-Governance

In Bhaktapur, since 1990 and the end of the Panchayat system, as legally sanctioned by the 1982 Decentralization Act and 1999 Local Self-Governance Act, a certain sense of "governmentality" can also be said to exist on the municipal level. In fact, led by the Nepal Works and Peasants Party (Nepal Majdur Kisan Sangh ) and Comrade Rohit (Narayan Man Bijukchhe), Bhaktapur has one of the strongest local governments in Nepal.
