“We have handed over our report to both leaders,” a member of task force Bijay Poudel told The Himalayan Times, “We have made it easier for the government to function through our report.”

As per the report, the government should identify and ensure food welfare card and health insurance to the general public, particularly, the marginalised community. “Every citizen across the Country should be benefited with health insurance,” Poudel said.

The task-force has prepared its report in accordance to the left alliance joint manifesto publicised before the Provincial and Parliamentary elections in November and December.

Moreover, according to Poudel, the report has stated that employment opportunities should be provided to each and every family while prioritising women in Tarai.

Likewise, the report has also suggested on replacing gas and wood with hydroelectric alternatives in the household kitchens within five years.

Likewise, the new government is also mulling to scrap the then Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba led government’s decisions while the election codes of conduct were acted.

The left alliance’s election manifesto had priortised on stability, good governance and economic growth. Moreover, the parties in their joint manifesto had pledged to boost the Country’s per capita income to $5000 within a decade.
