KATHMANDU – Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has expressed concern over the delay in the post-earthquake reconstruction works and directed the employees concerned to expedite the whole campaign.
Inaugurating the seminar on reconstruction organized here today by the National Reconstruction Authority for the coordination among the related ministries, bodies and units, he said he has not swung into action as per the aspirations of the people and issued directives to the bodies concerned to carry out the reconstruction tasks in a speedy manner.
“I am not satisfied with the pace of entire works of the government as well as the reconstruction works. Maybe, I might also be to blame for this but the delay in the reconstruction campaign in the pretext of other obstacles and impediments would not be tolerated. I am ready to do everything on behalf the Council of Ministers or parliament for that cause,” he said.
PM Oli stated that any employee making delay in works under any pretext from now on would be transferred and replaced by the one who works. “It would not be proper if building shelter to the earthquake victims takes decades,” he added.
Stating that the details of the extent of reconstruction works and the employees assigned for overseeing that work should be made public through the national media on a daily basis from now on, the Prime Minister also underlined the need of mobilizing the youth volunteers in the reconstruction works.
