Full budget necessary to save nation from economic crisis: PM Bhattarai
KATHMANDU, Nov 8: Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai said the budget was a must to save the nation from economic crisis.
Addressing the Ninth General Convention of the Nepal Public Campus Association on Thursday, he urged the main opposition parties to be serious that the nation would be pushed towards severe economic crisis if a full-fledged budget was not brought.
Prime Minister Dr. Bhattarai also urged the intellectual classes to give positive pressures to give a way out to the nation from present political transition.
Dr. Bhattarai expressed his concern over the former King Gyanendra Shah making any moves forgetting his status and warned that the facilities provided to him as the former king would be snatched away if he continues to do so.
"It is natural and positive to demand for university by the public campuses, the government would take a concrete step over their demands evaluating the role played by them in higher education," said Prime Minister Dr. Bhattarai.
Similarly, Minister for Education Dinanath Sharma said the structures of the Ministry should be changed in the context as the Ministry of Education has failed to give effective leadership to the higher education. Also, Minister Sharma expressed his commitment to addressing the public campuses´ demands for University.
Representatives from around 390 campuses have been participating in the general convention that was started from Wednesday.
