New budget for fiscal year 2021/22 brings criticism

2021 May 30, 20:22, Kathmandu

Nepali Congress leader and former Finance Minister Dr Ram Sharan Mahat has criticised the new budget for its bigger size and the one being brought at a time when many ongoing development projects have not been implemented.

He accused the incumbent government that has recently announced new election dates without discussions of bringing full budget for the fiscal year 2021/22 through an ordinance.

The NC leader was speaking at a budget review here on Sunday by the School of Democracy. “The budget has been brought with an intention of influencing the elections. The caretaker government has only the responsibility of continuing ongoing programmes. But it cannot bring supplementary budget,” he said.

Former Governor of Nepal Rastra Bank Dr Chiranjibi Nepal charged the government with bringing the budget without discussions.

Similarly, former vice chairperson of National Planning Commission Dr Jagadish Chandra Pokharel attacked the budget as being election-focused while another NPC former vice chair Dr Govinda Pokharel has stated challenges in budget implementation.
