Provincial capital won’t be decided unilaterally: Onsari Gharti


RUPANDEHI: Nepal Communist Party’s (NCP) province no 5 chair Onsari Gharti has pledged that no political party would unilaterally decide and declare capital city and name of province no 5 on their own.

At an interaction program organized by Reporters’ Club in province no 5 at Butwal today, the first female Speaker of House Gharti said that right authority to determine the capital city and province’s name solely lied on the public.

Stating that consultations would be held with all political parties for the same, she admitted that it took some time to determine provincial capital since the country was adopting a new structure.

According to her, the government has introduced a new policies and program for fiscal year 2019/20 ensuring Nepali’s ownership over Nepal’s resources.

She viewed that although there was no issue within the NCP, those not favoring peace and stability were spreading misleading rumours.

On a different note, Gharti clarified that the government did not intend to infringe on press freedom.

The clarification had a bearing with the Media Bill introduced by the government.

Furthermore, she vouched for freedom for the press and press persons and said that the Bill would be amended if it had any flaws. (RSS)
