KATHMANDU: National Assembly (NA) members have complained about the government’s indifference and lack of accountability to the issues related to people’s livelihood that they have point out in the NA meetings.

Speaking during zero hour of today’s meeting, MP Kamala Pant said though we talk about people’s livelihood in the Parliament it does not seem that the government has heard any of it.

The government should respond to the issues raised by MPs at least once a week, she demanded.

Lawmaker Krishna Prasad Paudel said that meteorologists have predicted more rain than usual this year, with an estimated 1.8 million people to be affected due to floods and inundation in Tarai.

So what is the plan of the government to minimize loss to people’s life and property? He asked.

Lawmaker Gomadevi Timilsina said that although there are 56 small and big airports in the country only 13 of them are of international and regional level with 12 airports turned into cattle ranches.

Member of Parliament Durga Gurung drew the attention of the government to the problem of low voltage power supply in Birendranagar in Surkhet.

Another lawmaker Narayanadatta Mishra drew the government’s attention to the fact that flooding is always a problem in Tikapur, Bhajani and Joshipur in the Sudurpaschim.

Lawmaker Bhuwan Bahadur Sunar said although the government has given priority to agriculture there is a problem of storage of agricultural produce, especially fruits.

The NA lawmaker Madan Kumar Shah drew the government’s attention to the fact that Nepali youths have joined the Russian army and many of them have died and some have gone missing.

Member of Parliament Yubaraj Sharma demanded to make public the report of the commission formed to look into the arrears of electricity tariffs of the industries operating in Nepal.
