Kathmandu, May 10

Rastriya Prajatantra Party lawmaker Rajendra Lingden has urged the government to rescue residents of his constituency in Jhapa district of southeastern Nepal from the risk of flooding.

He warns that he will launch a hunger strike if the government fails to heed his demand.

Addressing the pre-budget discussion in the House of Representatives on Thursday, lawmaker Lingden said, “Other parties obstruct the Parliament meeting to make the authorities review the plan, what should I do to stop you from turning deaf ear to my demands?”

“Lawmakers of big parties warn of obstructing parliamentary proceedings. Should I go on hunger strike? Will you save the locals from the risk of flooding in our area then?” questioned Lingden.

Meanwhile, the lawmaker also criticised the proposal of Finance Minister Yubaraj Khatiwa not to allocate budget for small scale projects and programmes.
