KATHMANDU- Minister for Industry, Commerce and Supply, Matrika Prasad Yadav, has instructed the staffers at the Nepal Food Corporation (NFC) to be result-oriented and responsible for their organization.
Addressing the 44th anniversary of the Corporation here today, Minister Yadav urged the employees to rise above their personal interest and work for the greater good of their organization and ensure its revamp.
“It is a government corporation. The market is really unmanaged lately. It is the duty of the Corporation to regulate the market and render services to the public,” Yadav asserted, instructing them to do regular market monitoring.
Stating that preparation was afoot to merge Nepal Food Corporation and the National Trading Limited, he commented that the Corporation had not gone beyond distributing rice in the remote districts of the country and selling rice in the jails.
NFC’s Managing Director Yogendra Gauchan said it was very difficult to compete with the private sector if the Corporation does not pay attention to diversification of market and be commercial.
According to him, the delayed implementation of the government decisions and primitive working style of the staffers were hindering in the performance of the Corporation.
NFC Board Member Ratna Raj Pandey lamented that there was lack of cooperation among the staffers in the Corporation. He underscored cooperation and collaboration among them to enhance its performance.
Likewise, Employees Organization President Madhav Prasad Yadav said that the Corporation did not have adequate human resources as per the vacancies which had created hurdles in delivering the effective services.Follow @gorkhapost
Unnecessary comments weaken judiciary-CJ Mishra
BANIYANI- Chief Justice Om Prakash Mishra said baseless comments and criticism would weaken the judiciary.
Inaugurating a national conference on human rights organised by Nepal Bar Association here on Monday, CJ Mishra further said, “Vague allegation that anomalies and corruption are propping up in judiciary does not make sense. One should lodge complaint stating who took how much and when”.
He also called for support from all sides in the campaign to get the judiciary freed from anomalies.
The Chief Justice also underlined the need for the Nepal Bar Association to play effective role for judiciary’s independence and efficiency.
On the occasion, Province-1 Minister for Internal Affairs and Law Hikmat Karki said that the people can realize a sense of justice only when the judiciary is made further responsible and accountable.
Also speaking on the occasion, NBA Chairperson Sher Bahadur KC asserted that 75 per cent corruption would come down if the justices and legal practitioners were ready to mend their conducts.
As many as 1000 legal practitioners across the country took part in the conference coordinated by NBA, Jhapa Chapter.
