There is no govt's weakness in Ncell share sale, says Maoist Centre spokesman


Bhaktapur, Dec 6: CPN (Maoist Centre) spokesperson and former Speaker Agni Sapkota today said the government had no weakness in the sale of Ncell stakes.

Speaking at an interaction organised here by the Rafat Sanchar Club, the leader said the powerful probe committee should not shy away from taking action in the case if proved guilty.     

Stating that the government is not guilty in the case of Ncell share sales, he said if anyone is found culpable, the guilty party should be booked.     

"Problems have surfaced without the help of stakeholders in the initiatives taken by Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda'.     

The whole Council of Ministers could not be mobilised to realise the aspirations of the people for development. Prime Minister tried to do many works. But there was no support from the Council of Ministers. On the other hand, government employees are also not cooperating, resulting in the difficulties the government is facing to deliver," he said.     

Stating that Prime Minister single-handedly undertook the initiative for rescue efforts and relief distribution to the earthquake victims, the leader said there was however reports of death of some victims for want of relief due to non-cooperation of the respective sectors.     

Welcoming the government decision to involve the Nepali Army in the relief distribution efforts, he advised the government to address citizen's concerns and criticism regarding its performance.     

"There is no issue in the ruling coalition and it will last for five years," he claimed, adding that it is essential to maintain public trust and uphold hope in the alliance.     

Stating that the government secured achievements in Lalita Niwas land scam, gold smuggling and the fake Bhutanese refugee, he said the Prime Minister's foreign visits have contributed to strengthening the country's diplomatic ties on the global stage.     

He advised the political parties to consolidate intra-party democracy to promote the overall national democracy.     

As he commented, the parliament the venue of amplifying the voice of the citizens has seemed confused. "The Parliament failed to prove it lively and pro-people. None is above the parliament. The passages of the bills have been hampered. The parliament should reflect parliamentary practices. " (RSS)
