DHANGADHI, Dec 26: Even though nearly a year has elapsed since the formation of the provincial assembly, the Far-western Province has formulated very few laws directly related to the people's concern.
The provincial assembly, which was quick to formulate laws related to an operation of the provincial government and the assembly, has not given due priority to formulate laws related to education, health, agriculture among others.
The Far-western Province which is considered to be rich in terms of natural resources has not prepared provincial laws on the extraction of stones, sand bounders, mines, and the establishment of industries and tourism promotion.
Locals complain that they have not experienced any change due to the delay in formulating laws having an impact for the general public.
“The government should have given due priority for better service delivery. But the government failed to do so,” said Prof Hemraj Pant, who teaches at Kailali Multiple Campus.
“People have not experienced the presence of provincial government.”
So far, the provincial assembly has not promulgated any of the laws related to education, health, senior citizens, infrastructure, drinking water and other public concerns.
According to Balaram Sharma, secretary at the Provincial Assembly, 17 laws have been promulgated so far.
