KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai deplored the President’s treatment of ordinances forwarded to the office of President by government.
“As ordinances forwarded to the President have not been endorsed, I am stuck in a position wherein I am unable to do anything,” said PM Bhattarai speaking at a programme organised on the occasion of 33rd anniversary of the Dillibazar Kanya Multiple Campus on Sunday morning.
“ My hands and legs have been tied to PM's chair and I am unable to do anything,” said Bhattarai hinting at the President.
Government had forwarded four ordinances related to education, civil servants, health and commissions on enforced disappearance to the President’s office for approval on August 27.
As the country is devoid of parliament for past four months, government is trying to work through ordinances but President Ram Baran Yadav has been suggested by the oppositions not to endorse them until a consensus is forged on the thorny issues.
On the occasion, PM Bhattarai also announced a revolving fund of Rs. 200,000 at Kanya Multiple Campus, Dilli Bazaar, in the name of his mother late Dharma Kumari Bhattarai, to provide scholarships to intelligent and poor students.
