Kaski, Dec 9: Chairman of the CPN (Unified Socialist) and former prime minister Madhav Kumar Nepal has said the government should launch relief programmes for those affected by the economic downturn. The businesspersons and loanees deserve relief in the present crisis, he added.
At a press meeting organized by Socialist Press Organization Nepal in Pokhara today, Chairman Nepal viewed the country's economy as needing recovery, so we must not stay idle. Vibrant activities are essential to revive the robust economy, he underscored.
"The entrepreneurs are hit hard now. The interest rate has upped. Those who have taken bank loans but faced a slump in enterprises and businesses should be paid heed," he underlined.
The CPN (Unified Socialist) he was leading had been prodding government to wipe out anomalies and aberrations. The increase in agricultural production and job creation for youths is essential for building a robust economy, according to him.
On a different note, he accused the Chief Minister of Gandaki Province, Surendra Raj Pande, of breaching the agreement by excluding CPN (Unified Socialist) in the province government. (RSS)
