No degeneration of democracy, PM Oli vows in parliament
KATHMANDU: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has urged one and all not to worry the degeneration of democracy at all.
In his response to queries of lawmakers during the process of securing a vote of confidence in a meeting of the Legislature-Parliament Sunday, the Prime Minister said it was not necessary to worry about democracy in the days ahead. “The government has started its journey towards prosperity and such journey can meet the destination only in the presence of democracy,” he underscored.
Stating that he had never ruled out the possibility of the amendment to the constitution, he gave his words that the government would revise it on the basis of its meaning and would bring all dissenting parties on the same board.
The country has already been freed from conflict and now time had come to give a message that the country was united. For this, support from all to the government is necessary, according to him.
The PM who was elected on the post on February 15, following the completion of the elections of the House of Representatives and State Assemblies, said he wished to see people not agitated over the government performance.
“I assume the prime ministerial post is not just representing the left alliance, but the post itself represents the entire country and my role and activities will go accordingly. The government has visions, fixed goals and destination. Its further course of action will go as per the same tune. It wishes to find solutions to problems as soon as possible,” the PM argued.
He took the time to make it clear that commitments made before the people during the election would be fulfilled. He said he would believe in work and its results rather than just engaging on debate on economic agenda. “The incumbent government will not leave any stone unturned to bring positive change to the lives of people,” he asserted.
As echoed by him in the meeting, the government would focus its activities on the welfare of the people and nation and his prime ministerial post and confidence was for the people and nation and for good governance and development.
PM Oli further informed the parliament that those accused in the Kailali violence had been arrested and the government had already directed authorities to probe the incident relating to the beating of a woman on the charge of witchery in Ghodaghodi of Kailali.
Superstition and other social causes are blamed for the violence against women on the charge of practicing witchcraft, said the PM who vowed to be tough against those involved in such inhumane act. “Impunity cannot be tolerated under any circumstances,” he underlined. RSS
