PM Oli faces MPs’ questions first time in parliament

18 Jan, Kathmandu – Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has reiterated the government’s commitment to good governance and development.
Taking questions from MPs in the question-answer session that has started for the first time in line with the provision of the Parliament Regulations in the meeting of the House of Representatives today, he said the government would adopt a zero tolerance policy to any type of irregularity.
Khagaraj Adhikari was the first lawmaker to put question to the Prime Minister who sought an answer from the government regarding the news about money laundering and illegal investment by Nepalis in foreign countries carried by the media.
In response, Prime Minister Oli said, “Nothing of the sort incurring loss to the country and putting it in disadvantage would be tolerated. The government is committed to implementing the law to curb such illegal acts. We have known about this through news.”
He added that the government would move ahead as per the law, investigating into the issue and finding out the facts. PM Oli said the government was aware regarding the illegal investments and its attention was drawn over the matter.
Dr Minendra Rijal, putting the second question to the Prime Minister, wanted to know whether the government was preparing to dissolve the hospitals established in the names of former Prime Minister duo Girija Prasad Koirala and Sushil Koirala, who have made significant contribution in the Nepali politics.
Answering Dr Rijal’s question, Prime Minister Oli said discussions were being held with the leaders of the Nepali Congress on this topic. He said there was some dispute regarding the hospital in the name of Sushil Koirala in Banke and the government was conscious about how to proceed ahead on this after resolving it.
Regarding the hospital in Tanahu in the name of Girija Prasad Koirala, the PM said he has begun discussion as to how it could be made to run well as it is found that it would not function only by running respiratory services. He made it clear that the government had no any plan of dissolving or ruining these two hospitals.
