Incumbent govt can't afford to fail: PM Oli

KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has remarked that the incumbent government cannot afford to be a failure and is not willing to fail either.

PM Oli made the remark while responding to the queries raised by lawmakers in today's meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR) that dwelt on the issues relating to the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers (OPMCM), National Planning Commission Secretariat, Office of the President and Office of the Vice-President under the Appropriation Bill-2075.

Referring to the National Investigation Department and other agencies brought under OPMCM, Oli said that efforts were made to grant more authority to the government agencies so as to render optimum services to the public. According to him, the move is aimed at institutionalising the rights of the citizens enshrined in the new constitution.

The PM further said that an emphasis had been laid on expediting post-earthquake reconstruction works and a Nepal-India joint government team had been mobilised in the Tarai region to find ways to curb the impact of floods there.

The Prime Minister also informed the parliament that all laws required for the enforcement of the constitution would be brought within coming September 19. As he said, under the fundamental rights, 73 laws have been already enacted while 37 are under the process of formulation.
