NC leader Poudel criticizes govt

01/14/2019

Kathmandu, Jan. 14: Opposition Nepali Congress (NC) leader Ram Chandra Poudel has said that his serious attention was drawn to the government's move attempted at dissolving the hospitals established with the names of the NC leaders.

Organizing an emergency press conference today, Poudel targeted the government for dissolving the hospitals established under the names of former prime minister duo and NC leaders late Girija Prasad Koirala and late Sushil Koirala.
The governments in the past had forwarded proposals to establish a respiratory hospital in Tanahun under the name of late Girija Prasad Koirala and a cancer hospital under the name of late Sushil Koirala in Banke district.

Leader Poudel claimed that he has received the notice that the Ministry of Health and Population has forwarded the proposals for constitution order to keep country's 11 hospitals under the federal government.

"But, the government approved the names of all nine hospitals except the two that are established under the names of the late NC leaders. We have received the information that the two hospitals are in the process of dissolution," Poudel added.

Saying that the NC leaders are planning to meet the Prime Minister over the issue, leader Poudel told the reporters that they are waiting for the PM's response in this regard. "We will be obliged to take stern steps if the government moves ahead with this biased idea," Poudel said.

On a separate note, Poudel also demanded a fair probe into the irregularities in the wide body aircrafts procurement and actions to the involved ones. RSS
