Policy and program positive : Dahal

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — UCPN-Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has said that the annual policy and program presented by the government for the fiscal year 2016/17 was positive.

Speaking at the Legislature-Parliament meeting today, Chairman Dahal said that diversifying international trade was an important issue, saying developing self-reliant economy and improving service sector were also genuine concerns raised by the document.

He said that it was necessary to form an effective mechanism regarding forwarding role of public, private and cooperative sectors, accelerating reconstruction task and constructing people’s houses.

Dahal further stressed the need of bringing a concrete program regarding land reform.

Stating that the policies and programs of bringing farmers under the responsibility of social security have added new excitement in farmers, he said that the plan of exploring petroleum products, ending power outage within two years and generating 10,000 MW electricity within 10 years were timely and genuine.

Forwarding big infrastructure projects like Tarai-Madhes Prosperous Irrigation Project, Rasuwagadhi-Lumbini railway and Kathmandu-Tarai-Madhes fast Track were other important programmes of the incumbent government, he added.

The former Prime Minister said that a national consensus government was necessary to resolve all the problems surfaced in the country, but urged the incumbent government to carry out its works without any doubt.

Dahal also maintained that the government’s policy and programme lacked a clear outline regarding the conclusion of peace process. He hence warned that conflicts might take place in case the peace process that moved forward as per the Comprehensive Peace Accord and the Interim Constitution would be addressed in a traditional way.
