Special Hour: Opposition parliamentarians go on tirade against govt


Kathmandu, Aug. 21: The parliamentarians from the major opposition party and other fringe parties, in today's special hour in the Legislature-Parliament meeting, came down heavily on the government for its alleged failure in disaster management and relief operation for the flood-survivors in the country.
During the meeting held at the Legislature-Parliament building at New Baneshwor in the capital city, CPN-UML leader Madhav Kumar Nepal lamented," We are not serious towards the issues of the public yet. The hardest-hit flood survivors are yet to be identified."
He also urged the government to pay attention for providing basics as food items, tarpaulin sheets, clothes and medicines to those in the flood-hit and inundated areas.
More than 135 people have lost their lives in the recent flood related incidents in the country, including in Rautahat district, said Nepal, highlighting the huge loss of lives and properties in various districts in Terai, including Rautahat due to calamites. He reasoned the construction of dam in the southern bordering area had caused inundation in several districts in Terai.
Similarly, Dr Shivaji Yadav of Sanghiya Samajbadi Forum Nepal demanded with the government to form a special committee to study the loss of lives and properties in various flood and landslide affected districts. He also called for a prompt resolution to the proposal seeking constitution amendment.
Yogendra Chaudhary, Whip of the Madheshi Janadhikar Forum Loktantrik, stated that the genuine demands raised by the Tharu communities should be addressed while considering an amendment in the new constitution.
Prem Suwal of Nepal Majdoor Kissan Party spoke of the need for the Prime Minister to candidly broach the topic of issues relating to inundation in Nepal to his Indian counterpart during his upcoming visit to India.
Echoing with Suwal, CP Mainali of CPN-ML asserted that the Prime Minister should clearly put forth the issues to Indian government as curbing the untoward activities at the bordering areas between Nepal and India and the dams built in the bordering areas non-compliance with the international criteria.
Mahendra Yadav of Rastriya Janata Party urged all political parties to stand in favour of the constitution amendment, which was being carried to ensure equal rights to all Nepalis and to implement the constitution.
NC's Sheshnath Adhikari pointed out the need to resume the people's embankment programme in order to stop further inundation by rivers like Narayani and Rapti in Chitwan.
Rastriya Janamorcha President Chitra Bahadur KC said the Prime Minister should raise during his upcoming visit to India about the flooding caused by the dams construction by India in the bordering region, and about the keys to the Koshi dam. RSSĀ
