Government able to retrieve Lalita Niwas land: PM Prachanda


Kathmandu, Feb 21: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' has said the government has been able to reclaim its ownership to public land worth Rs 800 billion.

During his meeting with a delegation led by Rastriya Prajatantra Party today, PM Prachanda reminded the recent court verdict against the Lalita Niwas land grab.     

As he said, due to the government's initiation, the government retrieved its ownership to the Lalit Niwas area.     

In the meeting, the delegation led by party Chair Rajendra Lingden acknowledged the 'good initiations' of the government, urging him to further improve the performance.     

PM Prachanda emphasized that all political parties should extend thankfulness to the government for its actions and investigation into the fake Bhutanese refugee scam, Lalitawa Niwas land grab scam, and gold smuggling case.     

"This verdict was possible since the incumbent government took a serious step in connection to the fake Bhutanese refugee scam, Lalita Niwas land embezzlement and gold smuggling scam. The government had arrested the accused ones in these scams and presented the file in the court after concluding the investigation. The court, due to this, has given a good verdict. Lalita Niwas's land worth Rs 800 billion has been brought back to the ownership of the government," PM Prachanda explained.     

On a different note, the PM refused to comment on the Rastriya Prajatantra Party's (RPP) decision to take to street with its agenda and said, "May your struggle be peaceful. We are trying to conclude the peace process. 

In the meeting, the RPP had handed over a memorandum to the PM including the party's viewpoint. (RSS)
