Agreement with Maoist for national consensus: Nepal
30 May, Pokhara:
Former Prime Minister and CPN (UML) senior leader, Madhav Kumar Nepal, today said the agreement with the CPN (Maoist Centre) was meant for national consensus.
Speaking at a press meet held by Press Chautari Nepal here, the leader stressed there was no alternative to facing the challenges of constitution implementation which he termed as a ‘national necessity’. He added that CPN (UML) was ready for it.
He called for moving forward with commitment to national consensus during this transitional period.
Nepal further said the budget presented by the government is people-oriented and it instilled hope among the Nepali people. The agriculture, energy and medicinal treatment have been prioritized in the budget, PM Nepal said, while pressing for adaptation of one-door policy for country’s overall development.
He was of the opinion that the money allocated for Constituency Development Fund (CDF) was unnecessary.
The former PM expressed belief that distribution of national identity cards and cards for identifying people of poor economic class would strengthen nationality and end the dispute of citizenship.
Nepal added that CPN (UML) which has headed the political revolution can also lead an economic revolution.
The programme was presided over by Madhav Baral, Chairman of Press Chautari Nepal Kaski Chapter. RSS
