Former Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal has stressed the need for a national consensus for the protection of country's territory and borders.

"We should stand together firmly on the matter of national welfare. Such diplomatic policy is needed," he said while participating in the meeting of the House of Representatives on Thursday. For this, the constitution should be a guideline, he added. The meeting discussed policies and programmes of the government for the next fiscal year, 2022/23.

In another context, Khanal, also leader of the CPN (Unified Socialist) asserted that leaders like Balendra Sah, a mayoral candidate in the Kathmandu Metropolitan City, who is leading vote count with a wide margin against his nearest rival, would emerge more in coming days, posing threat to political parties if they failed to correct themselves.

He also underscored the need for a concrete policy for poverty alleviation and for the conservation of national properties and focusing on the operation of industries.

"Nepal is world's beautiful country in terms of tourism and natural beauty. Many religious tourists could be attracted by developing Lumbini, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha."

Stating that the government has failed to bring progressive tax system through its policies and programmes, he stressed that those supporting socialism should focus on the matter. He further criticized that the policies and programmes have lacked development of art, literature and culture.
