'I am ready to face action if found guilty': Poudel

05/06/2019

Kathmandu, May 6: Nepal Communist Party General-Secretary Bishnu Prasad Poudel has demanded investigation into Lalita Niwas land scandal. During the deliberations on government's policies and programmes for coming fiscal year 2019/20 in today's meeting of the House of Representatives, Poudel said that he was ready to face action if found guilty in Lalita Niwas land scandal. The NCP General Secretary stressed that the government's policies and programmes is based on three-pillar economic policy along with the target of double digit economic growth, speedy economic development and prosperity. Similarly, Rekha Sharma of NCP said that many positive issues linking human and physical development together have been incorporated in the policies and programmes. She expressed the view that the socialism envisaged by the Constitution would be realized easily if the problems surfaced in course of implementing the policies and programmes would be addressed in the right way. Sita Kumari Yadav of Nepali Congress argued that the government's policies and programmes was a boxful of lies. Yadav said that describing the steamer brought into operation 10 years ago and train 80 years ago as the achievement of the incumbent government was a humor, adding that the policies and programmes have not mentioned any programme strengthening federalism and press freedom. Presidium member of Rastriya Janata Party-Nepal, Mahendra Prasad Yadav said, "The policies and programmes, brought from centered mentality, has failed to incorporate any sector. It has not mentioned about constitution amendment. The constitution could not been made acceptable to all if constitution would not be amended." Similarly, Sarita Giri of Federal Socialist Forum Nepal suggested the government to make arrangement of budget to let the states and local levels works independently and to give priority to the issue of maintaining balance. Sher Bahadur Tamang of NCP argued that although the policies and programmes have incorporated about employment and infrastructure development, it failed to pay attention to address the existing problems. Presidium member of RJP-Nepal, Anil Kumar Jha said that the policies and programmes, brought unilaterally, is very far from the ground of the reality and has not incorporated the issue of constitution amendment. Stressing the need of addressing the hopes of general people raised by the policies and programmes through budget, Shashi Shrestha of NCP said that the word 'My government' used by President in course of reading the policies and programmes has not disseminated a good message in and out of the country. Nepali Congress' Dr Narayan Khadka said no matter how much the government talks about good governance it is not verified by the scams and scandals that have taken place in the country. Sujita Shakya of NCP said the policy and programme needs to be welcomed as it covers various sectors and sections of the country. NC's Man Bahadur Biswakarma said the government should be that of the Prime Minister in a parliamentary system but the term 'my government' highlighting the times of the monarchy is not suitable. NCP's Maheswar Jung Gahatraj said the subjects covered in the policy and programme are realistic and would address the aspirations of the people. However, NC's Pradip Giri claimed the policy and programme was not realistic but with a lot of emotions. Mohammad Aftab Alam, also of the same party, expressed his disagreement with the government's policy and programme and said that it fails to provide any relief to the farmers. Meena Pandey, also of NC, said many data covered in the policy and programme were faulty, including the claim of irrigation facilities. NCP's Krishna Rai said as the policy and programme had come with a view to speed up economic development of the country cooperation and support of all MPs is expected towards that end. Yagya Sunuwar of the same party said plan should now be to implement the policy and programme through the budget. NC's Gagan Thapa said the policy and progamme based on false and misleading statements seems like a confused essay. RSS
