Finance Minister Barsha Man Pun has said the government is going to present a full-fledged budget for the new fiscal year.
Speaking at an interaction in the capital on Tuesday, minister Pun said that the government had not seen any other alternative to introducing a full budget and argued that bringing one-third budget, as asked by the opposition parties, would be "unconstitutional" in view of the absence of the parliament.
"Rather than arguing on whether the budget should be full size or partial, the parties should debate on its impacts on the country's economy," said he, claiming that the government was trying to reach political consensus on the budget.
Saying that the President has no right to turn down the government recommendation for ordinance on the budget, Pun said he was confident that President Yadav would not go to the extent of exercising the rights he does not have. nepalnews.com
