Country's economy is not weak as portrayed in white paper: NC


Kathmandu, Apr. 9: Nepali Congress (NC) has said that the country's economy is not as weak as it was stated in the white paper that the government issued some days ago.
At a news conference in the party central office today, NC spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma said that the white paper is unbalanced, filled with non-intellectual and impractical statements and is beyond moral honesty.
Sharma said, "We might have some ideological and issue-wise conflicts but today's political achievement is the result of common efforts. It is NC's duty to advance such achievements on the path to prosperity in an institutional manner."
Besides NC, the communist parties are also responsible for the poor economic status of the country in a decade, reads the press statement issued by the NC.
The NC has also said that the white paper has failed to mention the country's decreased dependency to the external forces though it is declining.
Likewise, NC leader Dr Prakash Sharan Mahat has said that the left alliance won the polls by taking the agendas of the NC. "Giving argument of poor economy of the country due to the NC in the white paper is completely untrue," Dr Mahat added. RSS
