Time to focus on good-governance, progress and development: PM
Apr 29, 2018-Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said reiterated that the time has come for the government to deliver on its promise of good-governance, economic prosperity and development.
Addressing Province-5 Assembly meeting in Butwal on Sunday, PM Oli urged everyone to utilise the human and natural resources, knowledge and skills for economic development. He remarked that the government would not compromise on any unwarranted issues. He further said all three-level governments should strive to defeat the activities such as syndicate, cartel-ling, corruption, and strikes that would only benefit only a certain group.
In his first-ever address in a Provincial Assembly, PM Oli conceded the country lagged behind for some time due to the agitation for democracy and called on everyone to strive without a second thought for taking the country on the path of prosperity.
He noted that the government was formed to serve the people rather than ruling the country. He directed the provincial government to stand in support of the people against corruption, irregularities and corruption.
He said there are immense opportunities in Province 5 because of Gautam Buddha’s birthplace Lumbini. PM Oli urged everyone to work in a planned manner so as to tap the huge potentials in religious and cultural tourism, agriculture, industry and trade, among other sectors.
Prime Minister is scheduled to address a special function to be held in Lumbini on the occasion of the International Buddhist Conference and 2562nd Buddha Jayanti today.
PM addressed the provincial assembly when the province government is set to implement the budget after endorsing annual policy and programmes.
