Prachanda sees need of making nation self-sufficient
Kathmandu, March 6 (RSS): CPN (Maoist Centre) chair Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has said the constitution amendment issues raised by dissenting parties would be responded on the basis of its meaning.
While addressing the meeting of House of Representatives today, leader Prachanda said effective efforts were necessary to enforce the constitution. He took the time to claim that the incumbent would be able to take all dissenting parties into confidence and meet the people's mandate for building the nation.
CPN (UML) chair Oli became the prime minister following the elections to the House of Representatives and Province Assemblies with the support from the CPN (MC) and both parties had an alliance during the elections.
Constructive support from all walks of life was imperative in the nation building campaign. The successful completion of the three-tier election was possible because of support and cooperation from all quarters, he said.
According to chair Prachanda, economic crisis the country was likely facing could be avoided through collective efforts. He was hopeful that the present government would work with full dedication to end bad governance, corruption and anomalies from the country. Nepal could unlock a door for development by taking benefits from economic progress achieved by China and India. "We are neither dependent on India nor China. It is a must for us to focus on building a self-sufficient nation."
The former Prime Minister went on to say that the leftist government would move ahead in cooperation with the opposition. He took the time to speak words of honour for all martyrs who contributed to bringing political changes in the country.
Similarly, also speaking in the meeting, CPN (UML) leader Madhav Kumar Nepal said the responsibility to develop the country had fallen on the left force.
Commenting on reports that the left alliance would turn authoritarian, he said, "Leftists believe in peoples' spirits. They won't adopt dictatorship. There is no need to worry about it."
He was of the view that Nepal could pursue socio-economic transformation, and reach the highest point of prosperity within a couple of years by creating employment opportunities.
The government would ensure good governance and justice to the people and increase productivity, he believed.
"The KP Oli-led government will get a vote of confidence soon, and a base will be created for the country to get prosperity," he said.
