What should be the Development Priority of the Country?

I saw the big dilemma in policy makers, political leaders, intellectuals and people about the country’s priority of Development. They want to focus on infrastructures and physical development. No matter which political party lead the government; despite of the political ideology,   immense budget has been allocated for the infrastructures and physical development. Since the first five years plan to now, the country has been focusing on infrastructures development, but the result is reprehensible.  However, the social indicators are terribly low in this country. Unless the people belief system is replaced by  scientific thinking instead of the superstitions and traditional belief system, the country cannot progress. The huge corruptions, delayed, discrimination, bad governance are the results of non- conspicuous traditional society. Nepal needs to be transformed from traditional society to modern and scientific society. If the people of the country will become conscious and can understand the beauty of the 21st century’s  human values  and dignity, the physical development will go on speed of electricity. So, the focus must be given for social development rather than physical development. According to CIN there is NRs.32,00,00,000/- every day on road construction. Had there been scientific consciousness on local people the corruption would have gone zero and environmental sustainability would have been taken places in all development activities.
