Lawmakers have welcomed the government’s decision not to proceed with the State Partnership Programme (SPP) proposed by the United States of America.

Putting their view at today’s meeting of the House of Representatives, Bhim Rawal and Hari Raj Adhikari welcomed and thanked the government for this decision while Rawal demanded that Prime Minister additionally clarifies about the matter at the parliament.

Sanjaya Kumar Gautam urged the government to seek alternatives to resolve the crisis of fertilizers, and increasing price of petroleum products and to adopt preparedness to reduce loss caused by monsoon-caused disasters.

Anil Kumar Jha asked the government to take initiatives to save Gaur and other rural areas in Rautahat district that are at risk of being flooded due to ‘unmanaged’ Intensive Urban Development Project under the Ministry of Urban Development.

Rajendra Prasad Lingden criticised the government for not exempting taxes in electric vehicles in the budget for the next fiscal year, 2022/23 under the ‘influence of a handful businesspersons’ instead of encouraging them in the context when price of petroleum products is soaring.

Prem Suwal and Khaga Raj Adhikari accused the government of ‘undermining’ the health insurance programme by handing it to private sector.
