Nat'l consensus needed to combat challenges, MP Basnet says
Kathmandu, 1 February (2023) - CPN (Maoist Centre) lawmaker Shakti Bahadur Basnet has said that national consensus was needed to face the national challenges.
Speaking in the House of Representatives (HoR) meeting today, the Maoist Centre Member of Parliament (MP) said that the broader national consensus help troubleshoot national challenges. "Acts have not been made so far for the implementation of the citizens' fundamental rights. This is the problem caused due to our traditional working style," he said adding that our performances were not as per the policy and procedures for our failing to ensure better context demanded by the political system.
Likewise, Rastriya Swatantra Party's Manish Jha said that archeological heritages in Tarai-Madhes were awaiting protection.
Also speaking at the meeting, Rastriya Prajatantra Party's Dhawal Shumsher Rana said that the projects of the national pride were not implemented in an effective manner and drew the Prime Minister's attention of the poor progress on Sikta Irrigation Project.
Bir Bahadur Balayar of the Nepali Congress said though Godawari in Kailali had been already declared the capital of the Sudurpaschim Province but the infrastructure development demanded by the Province capital was still awaited. Drawing the government’s attention towards that end, he questioned why the Sudurpashim had been excluded from the projects of the national pride.
He took time to say that the Sudurpashim Medical College area had been covered by the grass and no concrete efforts had been taken yet to operate the facility. He was of the opinion that rights of entrepreneurs should be ensured.
The CPN (UML)'s lawmaker Raghuji Panta demanded that Prime Minister and all ministers allocate one and one and a half hour of their time and compulsorily present in the parliament session. "I want to urge ministers not to go against the basic values of the constitution."
Contradiction in the statement delivered by the PM and minister was not a good sign for democracy, he commented while referring to the media report that the Urban Minister said that the Rastriya Prajatantra Party did not accept federalism and secularism the day after Prime Minister addressed the National Assembly.
