Puspa Kamal Dahal Prachanda

Kathmandu, May 26: The government’s policies and programmes for the upcoming fiscal year 2081-82 BS (2024-25) have been endorsed with opposition parties’ protest.

A meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) today endorsed a proposal put forth by Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ seeking the endorsement of the policies and programmes.

The Prime Minister proposed to the lower house to initiate discussions on the policies and the programmes for the fiscal year 2081-82 BS (2024-25) presented by the President before the joint sitting of both houses of the Federal Parliament on Tuesday, May 14.

Before the session passed the proposal, the Prime Minister responded to queries raised during the discussions on the fresh policies and programmes. The lower house shall meet again at 4:00 pm on May 28.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said he is confident of a political development to put an end to the ongoing parliamentary obstructions by Monday, tomorrow.

Though today’s political meeting aiming to end the parliament impasse failed to meet the objective, there will be consensus and an agreement in this regard by tomorrow, according to him.

He said this during his replies to the concerns over the government policies and programmes for the fiscal year 2081-82 (2024-25) in a meeting of the House of Representatives today for a consensus. “Though it was not possible today, I hope it will be achieved tomorrow.”

It may be noted that the NC continues to obstruct the parliamentary proceedings demanding the formation of a parliamentary committee to investigate the alleged involvement of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs, Rabi Lamichhane, in the misappropriation of the cooperative funds.
