2022 Feb 17, 8:32, Morang

Province-1's Chief Minister Rajendra Kumar Rai has said the Cabinet was expanded to lessen the burden and address political needs. CM Rai argued that the previous government had not done any noticeably good work.

CM Rai addressed the issue while inaugurating the first Provincial level gathering of Socialist Press Organization Nepal on Wednesday. He expressed confidence that although the expansion would cost more, they were making efforts to increase revenue. He further blamed that the previous government had created a huge financial rift. Unnecessary projects would be cut down in the coming budget, according to him.

He also assured that the forthcoming session of the province government would finalize the name of the Province by forging consensus among political parties and stakeholders. Similarly, the CM informed that the space for the construction of province structures would be secured within current fiscal year.

On a different note, CM Rai said the concerned ministry would allocate additional budget for rights and career development of media personnel. He also vowed to incorporate the suggestions furnished by the media persons on the bill of provincial media foundation.

Similarly, Minister for Transport Management and Communications Upendra Prasad Ghimire said the province government would manage incentives to attract women and physically disabled people towards journalism.
