Govt should take efforts in uniting opposition parties during disasters: NC president Deuba


KATHMANDU: Main opposition Nepali Congress president and party parliamentary leader, Sher Bahadur Deuba, on Wednesday suggested that the government creates favourable environment for all ruling and opposition parties to unite in times of pains caused by natural disasters.
The government’s attempts to take its responsibility singlehandedly had resulted in flood survivors ending up without timely relief and rescue efforts, he said while attending a deliberation on the proposal of public importance relating to launching relief programmes and collecting loss detains caused by flooding and landslides across many parts of the country.
“The government has not focused on bringing along other political parties in the parliament in times of this big disaster. Now many disaster survivors have not got access to food and accommodation. The government is also falling behind in collecting exact details of loss and in opening floodgates of Koshi barrage,” he said.
He also drew the attention of the government to taking diplomatic initiatives with India in permanently resolving issue of Tarai-Madhes being submerged under the water during monsoon.
“The government should hold talks with India on problems created by embankments along the Nepal-India border. India’s security concerns should also be addressed. All, be them government or oppositions, should come together during hardships.”
