Kathmandu, July 24: Main opposition Nepali Congress president and party parliamentary leader, Sher Bahadur Deuba has suggested that the government creates a favourable environment for all ruling and opposition parties to unite in times of pains caused by natural disasters.
The government’s attempts to take its responsibility singlehandedly had resulted in flood survivors ending up without timely relief and rescue efforts, he said while attending a deliberation on the proposal of public importance relating to launching relief programmes and collecting loss detains caused by flooding and landslides across many parts of the country.
He also drew the attention of the government to take diplomatic initiatives with India in permanently resolving the issue of Tarai-Madhes being submerged under the water during monsoon.
The main opposition Nepali Congress has presented a proposal of urgent public importance in the House of Representatives, seeking the House ruling to the government in regard with search, rescue efforts in the aftermath of losses of lives and property by monsoon floods, landslides and incidences of inundation.
On the very onset of the meeting, NC lawmaker Dr. Minendra Prasad Rijal narrated the proposal to give a message that political parties will come together when the nation is in a crisis.
Backing the proposal, Rashtriya Janata Party- Nepal praesidium chair Raj Kishore Yadav said the document was brought to find a better way to console the people surviving the incidences of disasters occurred during this monsoon through combined efforts.
