KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has asserted that the government certainly returns its lands usurped by anyone irrespective of position and power. Also the Chairman of Nepal Communist Party, Prime Minister Oli said the public land of Lalita Niwas of Baluwatar and other parts would be brought under the government’s ownership.

During the parliamentary party meeting of the NCP which discussed upcoming policy, programmes and budget, PM Oli made it clear, “Currently, efforts were made to tarnish the government and party relating to government lands, but it is not a new issue at all. General Secretary of the party, Bishnu Poudel, was not in power during the transaction of the Baluwatar land, so he has not misused the authority.”

According to the PM, an investigation into the public land and purchase of wide-body aircraft was going on. So, the facts on it would come soon, he added.

PM Oli further urged the party leaders, lawmakers and cadres not to be disappointed as the government was working under the national resolution of ‘Prosperous Nepal- Happy Nepali.’ He directed the lawmakers to play an effective role in the federal parliament. As he informed in the meeting, an allowance to the senior citizens would be increased.

He asserted again that none would be bound to live in poverty in some years.
