Govt failing to utilize given opportunity: NC leader Poudel


PALPA, Jan 22: Nepali Congress (NC) senior leader Ramchandra Poudel has said the present time is the right time for the government to prove its competency.

Speaking at a press meet in Tansen on Tuesday organized by the Nepal Press Union (NPU), Palpa chapter, the former deputy prime minister accused the (incumbent) government of keeping it busy in inaugurating projects undertaken by the previous governments and failing to utilize the given opportunity.

“Though there is a suitable time in the country for the government to work, such time is being wasted due to an arrogance of two-thirds majority.”

The incumbent government could not meet the people’s expectations for development, good governance and peace and security.

He vented ire at the government move to appoint the office bearers of the constitutional commissions in the absence of opposition party leaders.

Despite a big investment in education and health sectors, quality services for the people were still a far cry, he said, adding that the government was yet to lay its focus on quality service to the people. RSS
