Government gearing up for one-third budget


KATHMANDU: : Today’s meeting of the Council of Ministers has promoted four joint secretaries of the government to the post of secretaries.

Those promoted joint secretaries are Durga Nidhi Sharma, Gyan Darshan Udas, Dharma Bahadur Tamang and Surya Silwal, according to Spokesperson of the government and Minister for Information and Communications, Raj Kishor Yadav.

The meeting also decided to accept a loan assistance provided by the World Bank to the government of Nepal for the implementation of the ‘Maintenance and improvement of bridges’ programme and ‘1,000 Golden Days’ programme.

Similarly, the meeting also decided to accept loan assistance of Rs. 1.584 billion provided by the Kuwait Fund for Budhigandaki Hydropower (with Reservoir) Project.

Minister Yadav told media persons that the government is not bringing a full-fledged budget and added that discussions are underway for bringing a one-third budget by managing an alternative for the integration of PLA combatants and expense for the elections.

He said “We have reached a conclusion for not bringing a complete budget but discussions are underway which kind of budget is better—either the one-third or partial – by managing alternatives for integration of the PLA combatants and election expense”.

The Communication Minister said the government would move ahead by forging consensus among political parties on the budget.

An all-party meeting held few days ago had decided not to bring a complete budget after different political parties including Nepali Congress and CPN-UML protested saying the government could not bring a full-fledged budget at a time when the date of elections was already announced. RSS
