KATHMANDU — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has argued the criticisms against the annual budget tabled by government on Saturday are groundless.

On remarks from various quarters on the size of the budget unveiled on Saturday, the PM said that the size of the budget is smaller by four percent as compared to previous one.

Speaking at the parliamentary party meeting of the CPN-UML at its Parliamentary Party office in New Baneswor on Sunday, PM Oli said the comments were only a part of the trend that an opposition party has to express disagreement over the ruling party’s act.

Oli, who is also chairman and PP leader of UML, challenged the opposition parties to come up with evidence to show where and how the budget was distributive.

He said the budget is oriented towards development of the country, advancement of the people and socialism as envisaged in the new constitution. “The budget comprises clear policy and approach in taking the country ahead, and with the goal of enforcement”, he said.

He also said that the government has allocated budget in various sectors with due responsibility for the development of the country. The Prime Minister said the principles of the budget advocate development and prosperity of the country. “Implementation of the budget will show what ways should be adopted to develop a country,” he said.

Responding to criticism of the budget by various quarters, Finance Minister Bishnu Prasad Poudel said that the criticism was made on the ground that the government has brought a very popular budget, but not the fact that they disliked it.

CPN-UML chief whip Bhanu Bhakta Dhakal termed the budget as good and urged all lawmakers to support it, and lend support to pass it.

He said that a good message would be spread if a campaign regarding good aspect of government’s policies and programs would be launched across the nation.
