Under the "Panchayat Democracy"
- no political parties were allowed
- human rights were denied
- corruption was rampant
- state money was misused
- economic development did not take place
- "nationalist" slogans were given, but no improvement in the day-to-day life of the people was realized
During Panchayat Democracy, there were least human rights violations, least corruption and least misuse of state money. There were brilliant development works, which have now resumed after the coming of new government under the king.
