KATHMANDU, Sept 9: The main opposition party, CPN (UML) has termed Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal's address in the Legislature-Parliament on Thursday as his ‘wish list’.
Speaking during special hour in today's Parliament meeting, CPN (UML) lawmaker Bhim Rawal raised question over the basis of PM Dahal's address in the Parliament in the context when the erstwhile government had already brought the budget as well as policy and programs. "The issues mentioned by the Prime Minister in his address are like a wish list,” he said. He also argued that although the Prime Minister told that the foreign policy should not be brought in a hurry, but it was not seen in practice.
Criticizing PM Dahal for not mentioning about his proposed visit to India, another lawmaker Rajendra Prasad Pandey also raised a question about the news regarding postponement of the Chinese President's Nepal visit.
Pandey said although it was announced to provide Rs 800,000 to quake survivors, they have not yet received Rs 50,000 of the first installment. RSS
