NC Leader Dr. Ram Sharan Mahat

KATHMANDU: Former Finance Minister and Nepali Congress leader Ram Sharan Mahat has stressed that the government should not bring budget without forging consensus among the political parties.

Speaking at a programme organized by the Nepal Students’ Union here on Sunday, he said the government had no rights to bring budget through ordinance.

NC leader Mahat claimed that consensus among the political parties was must to bring budget through ordinance in the special situation. However, such budget could not bring new programmes, he argued.

In a different note, Congress leader Mahat said it was not good for the government head to go for foreign visit in context that the nation was passing through hard times. He urged the government to cut the scheduled foreign visits and take initiative to resolve the political deadlock in the country.

During the programme, NSU Acting President Kshitiz Bhandari claimed the incumbent government did not have rights to bring budget through ordinance. He warned of protest if the government attempted to bring budget through such process. RSS
