Unnecessary stoking does not resolve problem-Minister Baskota

06/15/2019

Kavrepalanchowk, June 15: Minister for Communications and Information Technology Gokul Prasad Baskota has termed negative comment on the content of any bill prior to the presentation to the National Assembly 'not good aspect'. Inaugurating the Telephone Exchange (PSTN) at Deupur municipality-6, Sipaghat in Kavrepalanchowk today, he said, "Here resentments are made before the tabling of any bill to stoke up negative comments which results in difficulty in resolving problems". It is not good to make misleading comments and criticisms rather not being based on the substance of the bills, he said. Minister Baskota said the Guthi bill tabled at the National Assembly would be separately discussed keeping in mind the two different aspects, one is related to culture, customs, religion and social conducts, and another concerning production, ownership and rights of farmers. "The Constitution has guaranteed citizens' fundamental right. It has the provision to provide land to the landless people. Is it fair not to provide land to the helpless by holding the public property?" He also went on saying that around 1,200 ropanis land of Swargadwari which the people are tilling should be handed to the tenants otherwise its transactions should be clearly presented to the government. The Minister claimed that resolving problems of Guthi would help settle the similar issues everywhere. Minister Baskota claimed that the protest against the Guthi Bill is one-sided. "Those who are enjoying low tax must have been bothered about the bill. There are approximately 5,000 Guthis across the country. Those tilling the lands for years should be managed," he said. "State power is for the welfare of the people. There is no point in making this an issue in safeguarding the rights of tillers and farmers." In another context, he pointed out service of Nepal Telecom as safe. Managing director of Nepal Telecommunications Company Limited (NTCL), Dilliram Adhikari identified an important role of technology in carrying out development activities and prosperity. Likewise, NTCL's acting director Rajesh Upreti expressed telecom's commitments to providing quality service of telephone. The total 58 towers for 4G internet service in Kavrepalanchok and 128 telephone lines in Sipaghat will be set up, informed Pramod Paramar, director of the wireless service directorate of the NTCL.
