PM Oli cheated senior citizens: Anil Jha


DILMAYA DEVKOTA, KATHMANDU, May 31: Rastriya Janata Party Nepal leader Anil Jha has said that Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli has cheated the senior citizens by not incorporating the promised Rs 5,000 livelihood allowance in the budget for the fiscal year 2018/19.

“Oli wooed the voters promising to provide Rs 5000 monthly as the livelihood allowance. But he cheated them not incorporating his tall promises in the budget,” Jha told Reporters’ Club Nepal on Thursday.

Jha also said that the announced budget has failed to meet the expectation of the people. “The budget deviates from communist party’s election manifesto and the government’s policies and program,” he added.

“This budget will not help in implementing policies and programs,” he furthered.

Jha also said that the government’s target of eight percent economic growth is unachievable.

On a different note, Jha said that the decision of Federal Socialist Forum Nepal led by Upendra Yadav to participate in the Oli-led government will make no difference to RJPN.

FSFN decided to join the government after the two chairs of Nepal Communist Party, Oli and Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ signed a written agreement on constitution amendment earlier this week.

“PM Oli has also requested the RJPN to participate in the government. But, a conducive for the same has not yet created,” he added.
