Dang, June 2 (: Nepali Congress (NC) spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma has said that the party would play the role of a model opposition of the Communist Party of Nepal (CPN)-led government.
Speaking at a press meet organised by the Press Union, Dang at Tulsipur today, he promised the party’s presence in the parliament as the sober opposition.
The party would support positive acts of the government and side by side would point out at weakness, he said, adding that the party has decided to take a space of sober opposition in the parliament.
Street programmes and melee in the parliament would not be the ways of protest of the party.
In his views, the NC is the party which has experienced on and off victory in the elections and culture of intra-party factionalism and the left alliance were factors for pushing the party to the third position in the recent elections.
“The party is committed to reviving its presence and party leaders are doing their best to restore its position.”
As he said, the incumbent PM has relatively less challenges than the erstwhile leadership and it would be unfortunate for the nation if the present government failed to achieve the target of 8 percent economic growth.
He took the time to advise the current prime minister to move ahead with strong will power, dedication, open heart and maximum flexibility.
In his views, the budget unveiled by the government for the upcoming fiscal year seemed more ambitious than realist. “The slogan for rapid economic growth does not match with the budget”.
