KATHMANDU: CPN-UML Vice-Chairman and lawmaker Bishnu Prasad Paudel criticized the government’s policies and programs for the next fiscal year 2022/23, saying it was ‘directionless and irrelevant’.
“The newly presented policies and programs are ‘shallow’ and ‘insignificant’ and do not focus on finding ways to resolve economic crisis,” blamed Paudel.
The leader said so while presenting his view on the government’s policies and programs in today’s meeting of the House of Representatives.
The policies and programs for the fiscal year 2022/23 were presented by President Bidya Devi Bhandari in the joint meeting of federal parliament on May 24.
He also accused that the newly presented policies and programs did not incorporate programs for industrial areas, discouraging private sector, lacked development management programs and synergy between fiscal policies and interfering with the affairs of regulators.
The former Finance Minister criticized the incumbent government promoted inflation and failed in addressing the problems in supply chain and looming food crisis in the country.
