CPN (UML) Chair KP Sharma Oli has said the government policies and programmes presented for the upcoming fiscal year 2023/24 are beyond reality. Airing his views during the deliberations on the government policies and programmes in a meeting of the House of Representatives today, the leader of main opposition party accused that they had failed to address the needs of the nation and people.
He demanded the rewriting of the policies and programmes. The lower house commenced discussions on the government new policies and programmes that were presented before the joint session of the Federal Parliament on May 19 by President Ramchandra Paudel. He said,” The new policies and programmes failed to realise the gravity of the 15th periodic plan and review it accordingly.” The 15th periodic plan is in its final year and its serious review is expected in the government policies and programmes, and this part is missing, according to leader Oli.
He utilised the occasion to insist on investigation against corruption takes place at any phase of time. “Each guilty in the fake Bhutanese refugee scam shall be prosecuted and no innocent be blamed for it,” he asserted. The main opposition party leader was of the opinion that consensus, collaboration and unity were necessary to address issues of national concerns. As he said, the latest meetings among the top political leaders were intended at the operation of the House and finding ways for resolving the national issues.
“Such meetings centered on the interest of the nation.” He advised Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ to prioritise the issue of national interests during his upcoming visit to India. He added that his party had assimilated justice and prosperity as the essence of democracy.
