KATHMANDU:- Members of the House of Representatives have expressed their concerns about failure to bring programmes in the budget for the fiscal year, 2020/21 for Nepal’s territories in Limpiyadhura, Lipulek, Kalapani and Susta encroached upon by India.
While putting their views on various subjects on Appropriation Bill 2077, they stressed the need for bringing facilities and road constructions in the area in budget. A joint deliberation was held in today’s meeting of the House on various subjects of the Bill including the Ministry of Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Home Ministry and Defence Ministry, the Office of Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, National Planning Commission Secretariat and the Offices of President and Vice President.
On the occasion, leader of ruling Nepal Communist Party Bhim Bahadur Rawal praised the budget as having some good programmes and stressed the need for effective implementation.
He drew the attention of the government towards the lack of human resources to fight COVID-19 outbreak. He, however, claimed that incorporating programmes under Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) in the budget without its approval is an act of irresponsibility.
Leader Rawal went against the government announcement to increase taxes on fertilisers and electric vehicles while decreasing the taxes on chocolates.
Similarly, the Chief Whip of main opposition Nepali Congress Bal Krishna Khand underscored the need for the government to become serious about saving lives of people and controlling losses caused by perennial flooding and landslides during monsoon.
