Re­con­struc­tion works still at a snail’s pace

People's Review - - NATION - By Our Re­porter

In the no-trust mo­tion reg­is­tered against the KPOli-led gov­ern­ment, the CPN-Maoist Cen­tre and the NC had ac­cused Oli of not mov­ing the re­con­struc­tion works ahead smoothly. But even af­ter the for­ma­tion of the coali­tion gov­ern­ment of CPN-Maoist Cen­tre and the Nepali Congress un­der Pushpa Ka­mal Da­hal, the re­con­struc­tion works have not gath­ered pace. More­over, re­con­struc­tion works have not be­come the pri­or­ity of the gov­ern­ment as both rul­ing par­ties have been spend­ing their en­er­gies in ad­dress­ing the rift within their par­ties. Even the gov­ern­ment has been un­able to pro­vide the first in­stall­ment to the earth­quake vic­tims. It is note­wor­thy to men­tion here that the NC as the main op­po­si­tion party in the par­lia­ment had ob­structed the House pro­ceed­ings de­mand­ing that the vic­tims should be pro­vided the re­lief amount of Rs 300,000 to the vic­tims in one go. Later, the NC ended the ob­struc­tion af­ter the Oliled gov­ern­ment agreed to pro­vide half of the amount in the first in­stall­ment. But now the gov­ern­ment of the Maoist and NC is not in po­si­tion to give the vic­tims Rs 150,000 in the first in­stall­ment as the donors have ob­jected to the agree­ment. Hence, the UML is likely to ob­struct the House in the tit for tat man­ner, which will re­sult in fur­ther de­lay in push­ing the re­con­struc­tion works ahead.
