Lawmakers taking part in the general deliberations on the annual estimate of income and expenditure (budget) for the fiscal year 2022-23 in a session of the National Assembly today insisted on objective analysis of the budget.

Jitendra Narayan Dev of the Nepali Congress said the budget should not be criticised for the sake of criticism alone. He insisted on developing a culture of calling a spade, a spade while commenting on the budget.

He argued that there is an interrelation between the principles, policies and programmes of the government and the budget. The budget emphasizes attracting foreign direct investment, defining the private sector as the engine of development, research, and innovation.

CPN (Unified Socialist)'s Dr Beduram Bhusal said the first budget of the coalition government is better than the budgets of the past few years. The budget talks about the transformation of agriculture and bringing about economic transformation through cooperatives, private and public sectors, he pointed out.

CPN (Maoist Center)'s Ganga Kumari Belbase opined that the slogan of economic stability, promotion of entrepreneurship, and inclusive development contained were relevant ones. "It is a positive aspect of the budget that it has laid emphasis on making the country self-sufficient in agriculture by facilitating irrigation, fertilizer, and seed to farmers," she added.

Besides, the budget has incentivized small, cottage and big industries and it should not be criticized for the sake of it.

CPN (UML) lawmaker Devendra Dahal said the government should not include 'unfeasible' programmes in the budget as the coming year is the election year and there is risk of an economic crisis.

Pramila Kumari, Shekhar Kumar Singh, Tula Kumar Bishwokarma, Sumitra BC, Nara Bahadur Bista, Ram Chandra Rai, Jaga Prasad Sharma, Bhagawati Neupane, Maya Prasad Sharma, Bina Pokhrel and Narayan Dutta Mishra, among the lawmakers also put their views on several aspects of the budget.
