Gandaki Province Chief Minister Surendra Raj Pandey has said the provincial government shall not invest in unproductive sectors.

Speaking in a programme organized by Gorkha Municipality Judicial Committee today in Gorkha district headquarters, he said the provincial government will invest in development and construction works only on the basis of priority.

"There is more investment in the unproductive sector, the province does not have the policy of investing in unproductive sectors. Wanton investment never gives results," Chief Minister Pandey reiterated.

He called on the people's representatives at the local level to select, propose and formulate plans giving priority to sectors capable of giving maximum benefit. CM Pandey claimed the Gandaki province has put to an end the tradition of allocating budget being focussed on personal interest or keeping one's vote bank secure.

"It is found that a budget is sought for constructing bridges at a distance of one kilometre on the same rivulet. The politicians and leaders also exert pressure for constructing bridges only at a location which is deemed beneficial to them. The local people's representatives should formulate plans by identifying the real need," he said.

Chief Minister Pandey shared on the occasion that nearly 2 billion budget has been allocated for Gorkha district alone in the current fiscal year 2023-24 and more than 1,000 projects have been selected under this.

"We have started discussions on keeping a legal assistant to help in justice administration through the Judicial Committee at all the 85 local levels in the province," he said. Stating that problems have been encountered due to the local level's failure to monitor the development and construction works carried out from the budget allocated by the provincial government, he said the provincial government is effortful to make an effective system of monitoring in collaboration with the local levels.
