Deliberations on the policy and programme of the Sudurpaschim province government for the fiscal year 2021/22 at the province assembly began today.
Taking part in the deliberations, ruling party lawmakers argued that the policy and programme have emphatically incorporated relevant issues to be addressed through the upcoming year budget.
Lawmakers from ruling parties were Ratna Bahadur Thapa, Kunti Joshi, Liladhar Bhatta, Mahesh Dutta Joshi, Maya Tamang, Bal Bahadur Sodari and Kulbir Chaudhary.
However, lawmakers from opposition parties, including Govinda Raj Bohora, Bharat Bahadur Khadka and Divyashwari Shah argued that the policy and programme failed to include the most sensitive issues in this critical hour of the pandemic.
The deliberations would be continued on Saturday as well.
