DPM bemoans govt’s poor show
Apr 1, 2016-
Upset by the government’s poor performance in the past six months, the ruling Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal is said to be in a dilemma whether to continue to remain in the government.
At the party’s ongoing Central Committee meeting in Birgunj, Chairman Kamal Thapa, who is also the deputy prime minister and foreign minister, floated a proposal to review the RPP-Nepal’s participation in the KP Oli-led government.
“Six months have gone by since the government took office. Definitely, its performance during this period has not been encouraging,” Thapa told the meeting.
“This meet should review the party’s participation in the government.”
Thapa said the delay in rehabilitation of earthquake survivors and reconstruction of physical infrastructure was a burning example of the government’s inaction. He expressed concerns at the lack of progress in the efforts to resolve the Madhes issue and the failure to normalise essential supplies months after the end of the border blockade.
“The government has failed to do anything concrete that provides relief to the general public,” reads the document tabled by Thapa at the meeting.
Thapa said that his party would continue its peaceful struggle for the reinstatement of monarchy along with the Hindu state.
Thapa said that several political issues raised after the promulgation of the new constitution were yet to be settled and problems could arise in the future if the new constitution was implemented without properly dealing with the agitating parties’ demands.
