MPs underscore meaningful effort from all-side to resolve national crisis
Kathmandu, May 4: Lawmakers speaking in today's meeting of the Legislature-Parliament have pressed for meaningful effort from all sides to address national issues as post-quake-reconstruction operation and the demands of disgruntled Madhesh-centric political parties.
They also drew the attention of the government to provide relief to victims of fire in various places across the country.
CPN (UML) leader Jhalanath Khanal stated that one and all should be serious towards ensuring political stability in the country and create favorable environment for development activities.
Khanal also spoke of the need for all the political parties to be effortful to implement the new constitution which, he argued, would help the country make stride in development and political stability.
Referring to the potency of consensus among the political parties in the country during various political movements, Khanal stated that the consensus would yield bigger achievements and strengthen the national unity.
Echoing with Khanal, UCPN (Maoist) general secretary Krishna Bahadur Mahara underlined national consensus for effective implementation of new national statute, relief and reconstruction operation for the quake-survivors and resolving differences with the dissenting Madheshi leaders.
He also vented his ire against the incumbent government for failing to address the expectation of public in the realms of post-disaster relief and reconstruction operation and ironing out the differences with the disgruntled Madheshi leaders.
Similarly, Nepali Congress lawmaker Bir Bahadur Balayar accused the government for failing to provide relief to quake and fire victims.
Meanwhile, Rastriya Prajatantra Party Nepal lawmaker Dil Nath Giri said that there is no alternative for all major political parties to move ahead together for effective implementation of the constitution, while urging them for not involving in a game to change or topple government.
Likewise, Chairman of Sanghiya Samajwadi Madhesi Forum Upendra Yadav complained that the constitution was promulgated ignoring their 'genuine' demands.
Claiming that the fund received from various donors for quake-survivors were misappropriated, he also demanded formation of a high-level investigation commission to probe it.
