KATHMANDU, Feb 12: Members of the National Assembly expressed concerns about the increasing migration of youth seeking employment abroad and emphasized the need for collective efforts to establish good governance and achieve prosperity.

During a special hour of the National Assembly meeting, Kumar Dasaudi advised the government to introduce and implement programs that instill hope among citizens, encouraging them to stay and work within the country.

Lawmaker Jitendra Narayan Dev urged the government to thoroughly analyze the current situation and respond accordingly, acknowledging the challenging and crisis-ridden national scenario. He emphasized the need for unity to promote the overall interests of the nation in its pursuit of socialism.

Another lawmaker Nar Bahadur Bista called for effective government intervention to curb the grabbing of public land and intensify efforts to prevent policy corruption. While noting improvements in public service delivery, he stressed the need for continued progress.

Similarly, lawmaker Rajendra Laxmi Gaire echoed the urgency of concluding the peace process swiftly and advocated for the implementation of a gender-responsive budget. She also urged the government to ensure timely payments to construction companies, facilitating the acceleration of national pride projects.

Another lawmaker Narayan Prasad Dahal argued that the success of people's representatives lies in keeping citizens' agendas and national prosperity at the forefront of their performance.

Similarly, Dil Kumari Rawal Thapa urged the government to remain impartial and resist undue pressures while investigating cases of corruption. "The government serves as a guardian of the citizens. Its role is executive, and lawmakers are responsible for making the government accountable for the issues of citizens, their livelihood, and nationality," he said.

Thapa stressed the importance of the government taking diplomatic initiatives to promptly rescue Nepalis from war-affected regions. "There are reports that 15,000 Nepalis are recruited in the Russian army, and the government should proceed with bringing them back home safely." Radheshyam Paswan alerted the government to the urgency of formulating the 40 laws demanded by the Constitution.
