Minister Yadav said, “Our policy is to end syndicate in all the sectors, we are in the same campaign.”

“We will not tolerate corruption, it is easy to chant slogan but it is hard to implement it,” he added.

Responding to a query that there is syndicate in petroleum products as well, Minister Yadav said, “The government has been operating the work of petroleum products through the Nepal Oil Corporation, we cannot tell it syndicate, but we want competition on the same.”

Indicating former Finance Minister Ram Sharan Mahat, Minister Yadav said, “The government had awarded a person with the Best Finance Minister Award whose finance policy destroyed the economy of the country. The man who was awarded with the best finance minister award is now enjoying pathetic economic condition of the country.”
