Kathmandu: Leaders of the main opposition Nepali Congress and Rastriya Prajatantra Party have expressed their doubt over the implementation of the annual policies and programs of the government of Nepal for the upcoming financial year 2081/82.

Responding to media persons’ queries about the policy and program presented by President Ramchandra Poudel at the joint meeting of the federal parliament earlier today, NC leader and former finance minister Dr Prakasharan Mahat said we are not confident that this policy and program will be implemented. “As there is a difference between what the government says and it does, we cannot trust that it will be put into action,” he said.    

Also a former finance minister, NC leader Gyanendra Bahadur Karki said that there is nothing (in the policy and programme) that gives any hope to the nation and many important things are missing. There is nothing concrete to pull the country out from the shocks of the global financial crisis. Furthermore, fraud in the financial co-operatives, a matter of great public concern, did not come up.

In the similar vein, Chief Whip of Rastriya Prajatantra Party, Gyanendra Bahadur Shahi, said that the policy does not give priority to employment generation and agricultural technology. It is only limited to mere rhetoric. (RSS)
