Kathmandu, May 31

The House of Representatives on Sunday discussed the budget plan that Finance Minister Yuba Raj Khatiwada presented in a joint meeting of the two houses on Thursday last week.

The members of the ruling and opposition parties presented different opinions about the plan.

The ruling Nepal Communist Party’s General Secretary Bishnu Paudel said the budget plan aimed at controlling the coronavirus outbreak and increasing production in the country.

Likewise, the party’s another lawmaker and former finance minister Surendra Pandey viewed that the plan was balanced enough for this critical time as it did not have ambitions. However, he maintained its implementation was challenging.

On the other hand, the opposition lawmakers criticised the plan. Nepai Congress leader Minendra Rijal said the government lost a potential of turning the current crisis into an opportunity.

Another leader of the same party, Prakash Man Sigh, highlighted differences seen within theĀ  ruling party.
