KATHMANDU — Prime Minister KP Sharma has said that the main responsibility of his government is the execution of the new constitution, promulgated in last September, through the people-elected Constituent Assembly.

Addressing the country Tuesday evening on the eve of New Year 2073 according to Nepal’s official calendar, PM Oli, who is also the Chairman of decision CPN-UML, said the efforts for the implementation have been made in a fast pace highlighting that many laws that were not on a par with the new statute have already been amended from the Legislator-Parliament.

Oli described 2072 BS both as a horrible and remarkable year, reminding the countrymen of the tragedy and hardships Nepal had to endure and a new height Nepal gained after the constitution promulgation.

Lauding people in general for their patience even during extreme circumstances, he argued that the country ‘has emerged stronger from the tribulations it endured’.

Stating that he came to power at a time when the country was passing through an unusual situation in the wake of a blockade and protests in the southern part of the country, Oli said things have but improved.

Oli claimed that his government improved Nepal’s international relations with the immediate neighbors by visiting the two countries within a short span of time.

“My visit was successful in changing Nepal’s position as a land-locked country to one that is ‘land-linked’ with neighbors and other countries,” Oli said.

While expressing frustration over the slow pace of reconstruction in the wake of the April and May Nepal earthquakes, Oli said the government, however, had made its presence felt during the relief and rescue efforts.
