KATHMANDU, May 15:The opposition political parties have said the policy and programmes the President unveiled on Friday failed to bring forth solid plans to cope up with the COVID-19 crisis. It is against federalism and lacked policy and programmes, they argued.
Major opposition Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba observed, “It is like a short epic, too traditional; and lacks innovative approach.”
Similarly, leader of the Socialist Party, Dr Baburam Bhattarai, said the special schemes were needed to address the economy dented heavily by the COVID-19. “Although it sounds good, it is against the spirit of federalism. It is quite depressing,” he commented.”It has nothing special to combat crisis,” said Rastriya Janata Party leader Rajendra Mahato.
Pradip Giri of the Nepali Congress viewed that the policy and programmes failed to create hope and confidence.
Leader of the Rastriya Prajatantra Party Rajendra Lingden wondered why the policy and programmes failed to bring programmes to create jobs and combat coronavirus infection. RSS
