Nepali Congress slams govt. for delay in reconstruction works post quake

Kathmandu : The Nepali Congress on Wednesday slammed Prime Minister K.P. Sharma Oli-led government for delay in post-earthquake reconstruction works.

Nepali Congress lawmaker Arjun Narsingha KC, who was speaking at the house, said the government failed to provide relief to the 2015 earthquake survivors as committed, reports the Himalayan Times.

Narsingha also accused the government of ignoring his party in decision making process of the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) in order to take unilateral decisions.

The Nepali Congress claims that Oli’s government outsourced the task of post-quake reconstruction to the NGOs close to Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist-Leninist (CPN-UML) using the NRA to recruit the party’s cadres.

UML lawmaker Guru Prasad Burlakoti in response said that some earth quake survivors were missing in the list of relief receivers due to technical reasons and not due to political affiliation.

Meanwhile, the constituents of the protesting Federal Alliance continued to boycott the House meeting today as well. (ANI)
