KATHMANDU, July 30: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said the government was actively working to curb corruption. Talking to members of a delegation led by Rastriya Janamorcha Chairman and former Deputy Prime Minister, Chitra Bahadur KC, on Tuesday, Prime Minister Oli reiterated,
"The arrest of corrupt employees was growing for action. So, it is not increasing in corruption, but the increase of arrest." The Prime Minister further said all- high and low people- would be brought to action if all involved in corruption are taken under control. As he said, anyone involved in the encroachment of the public lands in various places would not be spared. However, the land captured by the mafias would be brought back to State with due process, he viewed.
"The government has initiated a probe on Lalita Niwas land. But, why is there hue and cry as if this government usurped that land? What were the previous governments doing? Those in the previous government are trumpeting it now," he wondered. The delegation submitted a memorandum, demanding the establishment of the area administration office at Galkot of Baglung. Receiving the memorandum, PM Oli assured the delegation with positive remarks.
