PM Oli warns against misleading publicity about Civil and Criminal Codes


KATHMANDU, Aug 16: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has urged all not to make misleading publicity regarding the Country Civil Code and the Country Criminal Code which will come into effect from tomorrow.

The Prime Minister was addressing a program to welcome new entrants to the Communist Party of Nepal at the party’s central office at Dhumrabarahi on Thursday.

“Much misleading propaganda has been spread around the implementation of the Country Civil Code and the Country Criminal Code. But this is the law which had been passed by the parliament last year only after much discussion,” Prime Minister and party Chair Oli said.

He urged against spreading rumor about both the codes that the doctors would be subjected to life imprisonment if a patient died in course of treatment in hospital.
Stating that it takes time to become used to new laws since there are new provisions in the new laws, PM Oli said there were no such provisions in the codes which would affect the people in negative way.

He stated that the government has been working in a way to give impetus to the development and construction works, to raise the living standard of the poor, to pay attention to social security, to maintain peace and national unity while remaining within the parameter of the constitution and the laws, urging one and all not to carry out activities that would create disturbance in the country in the name of fulfilling one’s interest.

“The government is not confused; the country is not confused; the people and the youths too are not confused. May be the opposition party has the false impression that we are confused. However, the government has consistently worked for the welfare of the country and the people,” the Prime Minister asserted.

Welcoming the newcomers in the party, Chairman Oli said that the new comers would further help to take the party to a new height.

He further said that the party would give responsibility to newcomers as they have joined the CPN with some expectation and belief.

On the occasion, another Party Chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ said that the government has been carrying out activities for development and prosperity as per the Campaign ‘Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepali’.

Both Chairpersons of the Party welcomed some 300 newcomers in the party.
