KATHMANDU, Minister for Federal Affairs and General Administration Lal Babu Pandit has said that his ministry has prioritized ‘Prosperous Nepal and Happy Nepali’, a goal set by the incumbent government.
Answering the questions raised by lawmakers over the Appropriation Bill at the Federal Parliament today, Minister Pandit said that the budget has been allocated focusing on sustainable development and quality service delivery to achieve the set goal.
Due to sluggish habits of the civil servants, it has been difficult to bring reforms in the administrative sector, said Pandit, adding, “I am rendering my efforts to make it effective.”
He underscored the need to join hands with the locals to achieve the goal of ‘Prosperous Nepal and Happy Nepali.’
Tarai-Madhes programs will be launched in the near future to improve the human development index by building physical infrastructures in the tarai belt, added Pandit.
He further said that the government will arrange seats and manage staffers to effectively deliver services and make polices to be made at the federal and local levels.
