Parliamentarians of opposition parties have commented that the government-presented policy and program for the upcoming fiscal year have failed including concrete programs for agriculture, employment, and corruption control.

Taking part in the deliberation on policy and program in today's meeting of the House of Representatives (HoR), they said the policy and program have not determined its clear objectives and priorities.

Parliamentarian Santosh Pariyar commented the policy and program were not much deviated from the past practice. He noted it has not included the issues of Dalits.

'The policy and program came as a continuation of the previous ritual. It has not touched on the issues of 13 percent Dalit population', he added.

Likewise, it has not come up with concrete and strong measures for corruption control, he viewed.

'Corruption prevails high in development programs and projects. If the government intends to control corruption it has to be reflected in the policy and program', Pariyar said.

Parliamentarian Buddhi Man Tamang termed the policy and program 'camel' noting that 'It has not set a goal and priorities'.

On the occasion, parliamentarian Metmani Chaudhary said there was no need to protest the policy and program as he claimed it has included measures for economic restoration, assurance of good governance at all levels of government, simplification in service delivery and protection, and preservation of national interests.

Parliamentarian Seraj Ahmad Faruki demanded a rewriting of the government policy and program for its failure to pay attention to education, health, and human rights of the people. He further noted that the government policy has not included a concrete program to check the outflow of youths overseas for education and employment.

Likewise, Member of Parliament Shanti Chaudhary demanded the agricultural revolution decade to emphasize the agriculture sector.

Parliamentarian Shiva Gywali recommended including a program to incentivize self-employment and micro-entrepreneurship.

Parliament member Ganga Prasad Yadav stressed the need to resolve the problems of landless squatters. Likewise, lawmaker Sanju Sharma Ansari asked the government to recognize Muslim community schools as public schools. She also recommended the government bring special programs for third-gender people. ---
