Jhapa, February 16
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli today charged that forces against development and prosperity were hell-bent on weakening his government. Oli also alleged that both domestic and foreign forces were involved in manoeuvring against his government.
Inaugurating the Damak-Chisapani road in Jhapa today, Oli charged that anti-development and prosperity forces were picketing the government from all sides to weaken it. Oli said that the government was the people’s government and it was capable of fighting against regressive forces. He claimed that his government had made major progress in two years.
Further, Oli said that the country was witnessing transformation. He said that days of staging protest and becoming violent had come to an end. “The country is in need of peace and prosperity as there is no room for violence,” he said. He stated that a campaign had started to make the country free from street children, and beggars.
At the programme, ruling Nepal Communist Party parliamentary deputy leader Subas Chandra Nembang said the country was moving ahead in the right direction to realise the goal of ‘Happy Nepali and Prosperous Nepal’.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Oli today handed over an integrated model settlement to a community at Damak Municipality. The settlement was constructed at a cost of Rs 40 million. As many as 23 houses have been constructed in the settlement.
Oli had also inaugurated a road section that connects Damak’s Krishna temple with Beldangi and a bridge over Mawa Khola that connects Damak with Morang’s Miklajung.
Addressing another programme at Jhapa’s Damak, Oli claimed that third country resettlement had elated Bhutanese refugees, who had languished in Jhapa and Morang for years.
