Full budget even if no consensus: UCPN (M)
The ruling UCPN (Maoist) has decided to single-handedly bring full-fledged budget within mid-November if major political parties fail to arrive at a consensus for the same.
The office bearers' meeting of the Maoist party held on Friday morning also decided to keep discussions with the parties on to introduce the full budget.
The meetings also sought cooperation from the opposition parties to prepare the budget.
"The government is obliged to bring full budget as it was facing problems to manage funds for administrative expenses," said Finance Minister Barsha Man Pun after the meeting.
The parties in the opposition bloc have been saying that existing government has no rights to bring the full budget. They have also urged the President not to endorse any budget-related ordinance forwarded by the government without their consent. nepalnews.com
