KATHMANDU: The major opposition party Nepali Congress (NC) has drawn the attention of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli towards the delay in the post-quake reconstruction and resettlement activities.
In a meeting held between PM Oli and NC senior leader Ramchandra Paudel at the former's official residence in Baluwatar,on Monday. NC leader Paudel urged the PM to expedite the reconstruction activities.
The quake survivors have despaired of the concerned bodies for the delay in rebuilding in quake-affected districts, as one year of the devastating quake has passed without any tangible reconstructions.
Emerging from the meeting, leader Paudel shared that the PM's attention was drawn for the government's positive intervention for the effective implementation of the new constitution and irregularities and disruption prevailing in the supply of essential goods.
Among the issues brought to the attention of the PM were bringing on board the agitating Madhesh-centric political parties, who are protesting the new statute claiming that it does not reflect their interest.
In reciprocation, PM Oli requested the NC for its cooperation for the same, according to Paudel.
On the occasion, PM Oli said that the high-powered National Reconstruction Authority has already proceeded with the relief operation, aiming to provide the relief materials to all quake-survivors by mid-May.
Leader Paudel has started calling on various leaders since Sunday to forge a consensus among the political leaders acknowledging that fact that there was no alternative to consensus for the implementation of the newly promulgated constitution.
Towards this end, Paudel held a meeting with UCPN-Maoist Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Sunday.
